Properties with a 4-Diamond rating offer upscale amenities and distinctive fine dining. AAA inspected & approved hotels reflect a commitment to quality and consistency in the hospitality industry. Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland remains part of a prestigious group of luxury hotels to hold this rating that considers cleanliness, comfort, cuisine, and consistency. Live! Hotel is part of a select group representing the top-tier of the hospitality industry in North America. Overall, just 1,752 hotels and 561 restaurants have earned the AAA Four Diamond designation for 2022.

“Our luxurious accommodations and premier guest services are a defining feature of our property,” said Ryan Eller, General Manager of Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland. “The AAA Four Diamond rating recognizes our commitment to providing a best-in-class experience from the moment a guest enters the casino, to the moment they check out of the Hotel. We are honored to earn this prestigious recognition for the fifth year in a row.”

Four diamond properties, including the Live! Hotel as part of the 7% of the more than 25,000 AAA Diamond lodgings, provide a memorable experience for every special occasion. Earned based on unscheduled hotel inspections that look at a property’s cleanliness and condition, an AAA Four Diamond hotel rating indicates that guests can expect a high standard of service and experience during their stay.

“AAA is pleased to recognize the Live! Hotel with the Four Diamond designation, meaning its unwavering attention to both service and surroundings have placed it into the upper tier of AAA’s Diamond Program,” said Stacey Barber, executive director, AAA Travel Information & Content.
