The award recognizes AAA Inspected & Approved hotels that receive the highest possible cleanliness and condition scores. Of the 27,000 full-service hotels rated in North America, just 25% of the hotels were awarded the AAA Best Of Housekeeping Award.
To qualify as AAA Inspected & Approved and receive a Diamond Rating, hotels awarded the Inspector’s Best Of Housekeeping designation significantly surpass expectations, as measured during a comprehensive, on-site inspection. All areas of the property must reflect this very high standard as AAA inspectors review for evidence of dirt, dust, pests, equipment performance and more. Properties must demonstrate housekeeping excellence for two consecutive inspections and be free of AAA member complaints to meet the award criteria.
“I am extremely proud of the entire team at the hotel, and especially our housekeeping team who played an integral role in the achievement of this significant accomplishment,” said Greg Stafford, Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center General Manager. “We strive every day to provide our guests with an exceptional experience and cleanliness plays a key role. In these times, it is even more important for hotels to provide guests with a level of trust in this regard and this award exemplifies our dedication to providing a healthy environment.”
A hotel’s housekeeping and maintenance attributes are among the most rigorous components analyzed during the unannounced evaluation conducted annually by AAA’s professionally trained inspectors. All AAA Inspected & Approved hotels at all Diamond Rating levels, throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, may qualify for the Inspector’s Best Of Housekeeping designation.
The commendation is the latest in a series of notable distinctions for the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center. Prior to opening, the property received certification from IACC, formerly the International Association of Conference Centres, an organization that certifies the top Conference Centers in the world. Last spring the hotel and conference center earned AAA’s coveted Four Diamond Rating.
