• Saybrook Point Inn & Spa Receives AAA Four Diamond Rating

    POSTED November 10, 2016

Saybrook Point Inn & Spa in Connecticut has received the AAA Four Diamond rating. The travel destination has held this designation since 2004. Currently, only 1,587 hotels hold the AAA Four Diamond Rating.

“AAA is pleased to recognize Saybrook Point as a Four Diamond hotel,” says Michael Petrone, director of AAA Inspections & Diamond Ratings. “To maintain the exceptional standards required for this rating on a daily basis is an outstanding achievement. AAA Four Diamond establishments are attentive to guests needs and consistently deliver memorable travel experiences.”

Saybrook Point often renovates and updates their property to continuously attract guests. They have recently opened a new Tall Tales luxury guesthouse next to its historic Three Stories guesthouse. It includes private balconies, secluded gardens and common areas featuring billiards, classic board games, bocce ball court and a range of books. The guesthouse features six uniquely designed rooms that have a balcony, fireplace, European bedding, hand-woven linens, water views and artwork by local artists.

“This rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff,” says John Lombardo, general manager of Saybrook Point Inn, Spa, Marina. “It’s an honor to be recognized as an AAA Four Diamond hotel. At Saybrook Point, we are committed to exceeding guest expectations and providing a premier travel experience.”

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.


After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  


Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
