By Staff | Feb 3, 2017

Two local destinations have proven once again that they are Shepherdstown’s hospitality “gems,” according to AAA East Central. They have earned the AAA Four Diamond Award for excellent service, opulent decor and outstanding cuisine.

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. The local hotel earning this distinction is The Bavarian Inn, 164 Shepherd Grade Road, Shepherdstown, a Four Diamond hotel that has maintained this celebrated designation consecutively since 1983.

Restaurants at this level provide a highly personalized and often unique culinary experience, according to AAA. Acclaimed chefs use the freshest ingredients available, meticulous techniques and impeccable artistry in presenting their leading-edge creations.

The local restaurant earning this distinction is The Bavarian Inn Dining Room, a Four Diamond Restaurant that has maintained this celebrated designation consecutively since 2001.

“Four and Five Diamond hotels and restaurants are committed to providing every guest with a personalized experience and attentive service in comfortable, high quality surroundings,” said Jim Lehman, president of AAA East Central. “These establishments consistently exceed the expectations of the most discriminating traveler – the AAA inspector,” he added.

These establishments are 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.
