Inner Harbor Hotel Recognized with AAA Four Diamond Award

The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore, a 195-room hotel situated on the city’s scenic Inner Harbor, has received the 2013 AAA Four-Diamond Award, property officials announced today. The hotel has been honored with the prestigious designation for all 26 years of its existence.

“We are honored to be recognized once again as one of the finest hotels not only in Baltimore, but in the entire Mid-Atlantic region,” said David Kohlasch, general manager at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore. “Our staff has worked very hard to maintain our very high standards to provide the best levels of customer service. This hotel is built around a quality staff who cares about the people who visit our property to enjoy everything Baltimore has to offer. This (AAA) award is a symbol of our commitment to our loyal guests and clients."

Coveted throughout the hotel and hospitality industry, the AAA Four Diamond rating for lodging is awarded to less than four percent of luxury establishments in the United States. Only 13 hotels in Maryland earned the rating for the 2013 travel year.

The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore joins a select group of AAA Four Diamond Award winners. To be considered for AAA rating and approval, lodging establishments and restaurants must undergo a thorough inspection by one of AAA’s 65 full-time, highly trained professional evaluators. These evaluators assess the cleanliness, ambiance, amenities, and service of some 60,000 hotels and restaurants throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
