CINCINNATI, Ohio - Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza has been awarded the prestigious Four-Diamond Award by the American Automobile Association (AAA) for 2015.

"With just five percent of hotels in the U.S. receiving a Four-Diamond rating, it's an honor for us to be named as one of the premier hotels in Cincinnati again in 2015," said Michel Sheer, managing director, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. "Our hotel team and our owners set the goal of maintaining the AAA Four-Diamond award each year, which makes this recognition that much more rewarding for all of us."

AAA and its team of designated field inspectors evaluate thousands of lodging & dining establishments each year and assign an overall rating of one to five diamonds. To obtain the Four-Diamond designation, the property must significantly exceed AAA's requirements in physical appearance, facilities, and quality of operation and customer service. Only 5.4 percent of the estimated 28,500 AAA-rated lodging facilities attain the Four-Diamond level of excellent. The rating will be indicated with the hotel listings in the 2015-2016 AAA TourBook - a series of travel information guides published for AAA's more than 43 million members.
