Officials with the Algonquin Resort have announced that the hotel was awarded the Canadian Automobile Association’s (CAA) prestigious Four-diamond designation. The Algonquin is a member of Marriott’s distinguished Autograph Collection of hotels and is only the third hotel in the province to earn the designation.
Fewer than six percent of the 29,000 hotels in North America that are rated four diamonds by CAA/AAA inspectors. According to CAA, four-diamond hotels are “refined and stylish with upscale physical
attributes that reflect enhanced quality throughout. Fundamental hallmarks include extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.” CAA inspectors rate
hotels on a scale of one to five diamonds.
“The Algonquin reopened only a few months ago following an extensive, 18-month renovation,” said Denise Bradbury, Director of Sales & Marketing. “CAA diamond ranking is recognized the world over as a reliable gauge of quality, so it is very gratifying to see everyone’s hard work pay off with such an important, international certification.”
The 233-room Algonquin Resort overlooks the picturesque Passamaquoddy Bay from St. Andrews-by-the Sea, New Brunswick, Canada. Each guest room and suite was carefully renovated to reflect The Algonquin’s original Victorian style. Modern conveniences and amenities include luxurious pillow-top mattresses, plush bathrobes, MP3 players, 32-inch flat screen televisions, in-room coffee and complimentary, in-room movies and WiFi. The 17 suites provide a separate, private seating area, and select guestrooms and suites feature a spacious balcony or patio.
