STRATFORD, Ont. — The Bruce Hotel in Stratford, Ont. has received the coveted CAA/AAA Five Diamond designation, making it the only boutique hotel in Canada to hold the honour. The hotel previously held CAA/AAA Four Diamond since opening.
To earn the designation, hotels and restaurants must pass a rigorous evaluation that included unannounced, in-person inspections, anonymous overnight stays for hotels and review by a panel of experts as an additional step to ensure credibility.
“I’m thrilled to join such rarefied company,” says Jennifer Birmingham, owner of The Bruce Hotel. “While this was a goal I pursued for 26 years, its achievement is a testament to the talent and dedication of The Bruce Hotel team.”
Noted for world class luxury and service, the most recent AAA Five Diamond list comprised 133 properties, less than 0.5 per cent of the 27,000 properties AAA rates.
