The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza has been awarded the prestigious Four-Diamond Award by the American Automobile Association (AAA) for 2009. The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza is one of only three Cincinnati hotels honored with this distinction and only one of 12 in Ohio.

"This rating is a honor to the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza hotel to be named as one of the premier hotels in Cincinnati again for 2009," said Michel Sheer, Managing Director of the hotel. "Our hotel team and our owners set the goal of maintaining the AAA Four-Diamond award each year, which makes this recognition that much more rewarding for all of us."

AAA and its team of designated field inspectors evaluate thousands of lodging establishments each year and assign an overall rating of one to five diamonds. To obtain the Four-Diamond designation, the property must significantly exceed AAA's requirements in physical appearance, facilities, and quality of operation and customer service. Only three percent of the estimated 27,000 AAA-rated lodging facilities attain the four-diamond level of excellent. The rating will be indicated with the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza's listing in the 2009 AAA TourBook - a series of travel information guides published for AAA's more than forty-three million members.
