CINCINNATI -- Nine restaurants and hotels in Greater Cincinnati were awarded this week AAA’s coveted Four Diamond Award for 2014.  

AAA’s Four-Star Diamond Award rating is similar to a four-star rating, and means a hotel or restaurant is among the most prestigious in America for facilities, amenities and service.

The Palace Restaurant received the award this year for the 26th consecutive year. The Celestial, Orchids at Palm Court, Boca and Nicola’s were also among local restaurants honored with the rating.

The local hotels that received the award include The Cincinnatian, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, The Westin Cincinnati and Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter.

“It’s a testament to our area that we have so many Four Diamond winners,” AAA Corporate Public Affairs Manager Cheryl Parker said. “These establishments consistently exceed the expectations of the most discriminating traveler – the AAA inspector. We are proud to have these dedicated businesses in our region.”

2,277 winners of the award were announced around the nation for 2014 – 1,548 hotels and 729 restaurants.
