SUMMERWOOD INN AGAIN WINS AAA FOUR DIAMOND AWARD
(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) â€“ Summerwood Inn, part of the award-winning Summerwood Winery Estate, recently won AAAâ€™s prestigious Four Diamond Award for the outstanding quality of the property for the tenth consecutive year. Summerwood Inn is the only property in the Paso Robles wine country to receive such a high rating.
The award, from the Automobile Club of Southern California (ACSC) which is the largest affiliate of AAA, is received by fewer than 3% of the estimated 25,000 AAA-rated lodging facilities rated by AAAâ€™s tourism editors.
"The AAA Four Diamond status represents a profound effort and extraordinary accomplishment by Summerwood Inn," said Charles Smith, the Auto Clubâ€™s Approved Accommodations Manager, "This award signifies that a property has met AAAâ€™s objective rating criteria and has met levels of excellence during extensive inspections. Four Diamond properties reflect a high degree of hospitality and attention to detail."
"At Summerwood Winery & Inn our goal is consistent â€“ to provide a completely luxurious and unparalleled wine country experience," said Director of Operations Andrea Boatman. "We are extremely pleased to have again been rated so highly by AAA."
Some of the other California properties that have received the AAA Four Diamond Award in the past from either the ACSC or the California State Automobile Association (CSAA), depending upon their location, include The Claremont Resort & Spa (Berkeley), Carmel Valley Ranch (Carmel), Highlands Inn (Carmel), Loews Coronado Bay Resort (Coronado), Hotel Bel Air (Los Angeles), Silverado Country Club & Resort (Napa Valley), The Lodge at Pebble Beach (Pebble Beach), Campton Place Hotel (San Francisco) and The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa (Sonoma).
