MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza, a culturally elegant hotel, housed in a 300-year-old hacienda, offering incomparable, dining and luxury accommodations, has been awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Rating. Hilton Santa Fe is the most recent hotel in New Mexico to have received this prominent award. The hotel is located just two blocks from the Historic Plaza with unique shops, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Palace of the Governors, and the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. Boasting an outdoor pool and hot tub with a stone fireplace, Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza is the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring all that Santa Fe has to offer.

The AAA Four Diamond Rating is assigned to lodgings that feature an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail. Restaurants at this level offer a distinctive fine-dining experience marked by high quality ingredients, creative presentation and attentive service. Fewer than 4 percent of the nearly 59,000 AAA Approved hotels and restaurants receive this prestigious rating.

Hotels at this level employ experienced, highly qualified staff to provide the custom service luxury hotel guests expect, according to AAA. These establishments deliver unmatched guest comfort with luxurious accommodations, extraordinary facilities and many personalized amenities. Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza is part of a select group of hotels and restaurants in North America. Just 1,615 hotels and 665 restaurants made the AAA Four Diamond lists for 2017.

"I am so proud to be part of the team that accomplished this achievement for the first time in the hotel's 30 year history," said Tohnia Miller, general manager, Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza. "We are passionate about delivering the highest quality of service, dining and luxury accommodations for our guests, and this award commemorates our ongoing commitment."

"Congratulations for earning the Four Diamond Rating," said Virginia Foley, Inside Sales Specialist, AAA Inspections and Diamond Ratings.
