AAA HONORS TOP STATE HOSTELRIES

 DEARBORN, Mich., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Nine Michigan hotels and one restaurant -- including a first-time award winner -- were honored as 1993 Four Diamond establishments today (March 24).
 The AAA Four Diamond Award is presented to less than 4 percent of the nearly 29,000 AAA-rated restaurants and lodgings in the United States and Canada.
 The Stouffer Battle Creek Hotel is the newest Michigan Four Diamond Award winner, signifying that high standards of excellence were achieved during a rigorous AAA inspection.
 The other 1993 Four Diamond establishments are repeat awardees. They are: the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, 8 years; Berkshire Hotel in Southfield, 7 years; Dearborn Inn & Marriott Hotel, 5 years; Grand Traverse Resort in Acme, 13 years; Radisson Plaza Hotel in Town Center in Southfield, 3 years; Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dearborn, 4 years; Sheraton Lansing Hotel, 11 years; and the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, 5 years. The Lark Restaurant in West Bloomfield is the only Michigan Four Diamond restaurant and has earned that honor for the third year.
 "This award is one of the most prestigious recognitions AAA can bestow on hotels and restaurants and symbolizes their ongoing commitment to superior quality and exceptional service," said D. James McDowell, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for AAA Michigan. "A rating at this level assures AAA members and the public that this property is among the finest in North America.
 "AAA members depend on the rating system as a guide to the finest in accommodations and dining," McDowell continued. "Last year, our 1.5 million AAA Michigan members requested more than 1 million TourBooks containing this information." He added that 33 million TourBooks were also distributed to 34 million members in North America.
 Approximately 60 specially trained AAA representatives drive more than 1 million miles nationally each year conducting unannounced inspections and assigning ratings of one to five diamonds. Hotel and restaurant ratings are published in 23 regional TourBooks, available free to the association's members.
