Boston, MA, August 13, 2010 The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, located on Boston, Massachusetts' waterfront, has earned the prestigious AAA 4 Diamond Rating for 2011, North America's premier hotel rating system. This AAA 4 Diamond distinction, awarded to less than four percent of the 32,000 hotels evaluated by AAA annually, recognizes this Boston, Massachusetts property as having AAA 4 Diamond premium accommodations, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.

"This important recognition from our esteemed travel partner validates the steadfast dedication our staff has for creating unforgettable guest experiences," said Terry Worden, general manager at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. "It is testament to the level of service they provide each and every day."

AAA awards the Four Diamond Rating level to hotels that consistently demonstrate high standards in the following areas:

- Cleanliness and Condition of Property
- Management and Staff
- Exterior, Grounds, and Public Areas
- Guestroom Décor, Ambiance and Amenities
- Bathrooms
- Guest Services

This Boston AAA 4 Diamond rating represents a combination of the overall quality, the range of facilities, and the level of hospitality offered by the property. These widely recognized and trusted symbols will help AAA members choose a hotel when traveling to Boston that will meet their needs and expectations. AAA inspectors are responsible for determining a property's Diamond Rating based on established standards that are developed with input from our trained professionals, AAA members, and various lodging industry professionals.

AAA's Diamond Rating Guidelines indicate what is typically found at each rating level. However, the size, age, and overall appeal of an establishment are also considered, as well as regional architectural style and design. Diamonds are assigned based on the average of all property characteristics, with a focus on overall guest impression rather than on individual elements. Therefore, not meeting a guideline (in one area) may not necessarily affect the overall Diamond Rating.

The AAA Four Diamond rated Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel features 471 guestrooms and 21 suites, a sleek, marine-inspired interior design, as well as full health club facilities and a sparkling lap pool. The hotel is within walking distance to many major attractions, including Faneuil Hall, the New England Aquarium, the Institute of Contemporary Art and the new Liberty Wharf center, opening in 2011. This premium hotel is conveniently located in downtown Boston, near Logan International Airport. Executive chef Gregory Griffie, together with the creative direction of acclaimed chef and restaurateur Michael Schlow, directs 606 Congress, which features modern, American food with regional influences.
