The American Automobile Association presented seven Hilton Head Island properties and one Beaufort inn with its Four Diamond award in a ceremony Monday in Charleston.
The Hilton Head properties are Main Street Inn & Spa, Hilton Oceanfront Resort, The Inn at Harbour Town, Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa, Crowne Plaza Hilton Head Island Beach Resort, Westin Hilton Head Island Resort and Old Fort Pub. The Rhett House Inn in Beaufort also was honored.
In all, AAA Carolinas honored 30 providers of accommodations and 14 restaurants for superior quality and service, according to a news release.
AAA gives the Four Diamond awards annually to qualified hotels and restaurants in North America. More than 2,000 properties nationally earn the ratings after evaluators conduct anonymous overnight stays or dine incognito, the release said.
