The Bellagio, Picasso and Le Cirque have been awarded the prestigious
2012 AAA Five Diamond Award. The Bellagio also has the distinction
of being the only hotel in the U.S. to have two AAA Five Diamond
restaurants under one roof.
To be considered for AAA rating and approval, lodgings and
restaurants undergo a thorough evaluation by AAA/CAA's full-time
tourism inspectors. Five Diamond establishments go through a
much more extensive review. AAA experts judge lodgings
on the exterior of the facility, public areas, guest rooms, amenities
and bathrooms. Restaurants are evaluated on criteria including
food, service, decor and ambience,
Less than one-half percent of more than 31,000 hotels and less than
one-quarter percent of 26,000 restaurants achieve this distinction.
