The Shangri-La Toronto was awarded the highly coveted Five Diamond Rating in September 2014, and acknowledged as one of North America's most luxurious accomodations. This achievement ranks the Shangri-La Toronto as a premier establishment esteemed by the luxury hospitality industry.
Each year AAA reviews more than 29,000 hotels including resorts, historic inns, B&Bs and more. Just 0.4 percent make the AAA Five Diamond list.
Continuing a 78-year tradition, AAA’s professionally trained inspectors use published guidelines to conduct unannounced hotel and restaurant evaluations, assigning Approved establishments a rating of One to Five AAA Diamonds.
AAA rates more properties than any other rating entity. It is the only rating system that covers the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean and the only rating system that conducts professional, on-site evaluations using published guidelines weighted by member priorities.
Properties identified by AAA as potential candidates for the Five Diamond Rating undergo multiple evaluations and a final decision by a panel of experts.
