BOCA RATON, Fla. - Waterstone Resort & Marina Boca Raton, Curio Collection by Hilton - an upper upscale, art deco, waterfront resort hotel at the Lake Boca Inlet - proudly announces its attainment of the prestigious AAA Four Diamond distinction less than a year after transitioning to the collection brand made up of remarkable, one-of-a-kind properties. AAA Diamond hotel ratings represent a combination of the overall quality, range of facilities and level of services offered by the property. Among the less than 6 percent of the nearly 28,000 hotels approved by AAA to make the Four Diamond list, Waterstone Resort & Marina Boca Raton is proud to be designated as an upper upscale, full-service resort offering an authentic local experience for visitors to Boca Raton.

"This accolade is the result of the incredible hard work of so many people," said Jim Haughney, general manager, Waterstone Resort & Marina Boca Raton, Curio Collection by Hilton. "The team work of our brand, ownership and management, the engagement of our associates, the distinctive offerings - including the waterfront culinary enticements provided for our guests all combined to make us worthy of this recognition. We look forward to impressing countless guests with the Waterstone Resort & Marina Boca Raton experience."

For establishments designated as AAA/CAA Approved, inspectors visit properties unannounced to provide an unbiased assessment and assign a rating of One to Five Diamonds based on the extensiveness of services, facilities and amenities typical of each rating level, indicating the type of experience travelers should expect when visiting the property. The descriptive ratings are assigned exclusively to properties that meet and uphold AAA's rigorous approval standards. Four Diamond properties are designated as 'refined with stylish physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.'

Waterstone Resort & Marina Boca Raton is an artistically-inspired waterfront resort, offering a distinct experience in Boca Raton. With custom-made furnishings and fabrics, glittering artwork and a one-of-a-kind marriage of water and stone - from which the property derives its name inspiration - Waterstone Resort & Marina Boca Raton blends grand, opulent Floridian style with breezy, innovative luxe design to create an artistic water escape. Using locally-sourced ingredients to produce a variety of dishes and cocktails, the resorts' two dining options, Boca Landing and Waterstone Rum Bar & Grill, provide guests with a distinctive food style conveying "just off the boat" elements. With unprecedented, 180 degree views of Lake Boca, Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, Boca Landing provides guests an art-inspired, water-centric atmosphere. The poolside Waterstone Rum Bar & Grill presents casual outdoor dining with a definitive Floridian flair. On the waterfront promenade, Waterstone Rum Bar & Grill offers Boca Raton's only dock-to-dine on the Intracoastal Waterway. Boaters may anchor along the expansive 280-foot seawall, and indulge in Waterstone Bar & Grill's all-day menu either on deck or on land.
