Wynn, Encore and ALEX Win Five Diamonds

Wynn Las Vegas, Encore and ALEX restaurants have won 2011 Five Diamond honors from that travel book that nobody uses except those who are rated in it from the AAA.

Of course we all know that these ratings are a complete and total sham, we've heard from very reliable sources that the hotels know who the "raters" are, when they visit and follow them around orchestrating great service right before their eyes, just like Oceans 13.

No matter, we'll play along... they usually get it right anyways.

A quick check of the AAA Online TourBook shows the following hotels are listed as four and five diamond properties. It is very possible that the 2011 winners haven't been added/updated to this online guide.

Five Diamond

The Venetian
The Palazzo
Four Seasons
Wynn Las Vegas

Four Diamond

JW Marriott Las Vegas
Loews Lake Las Vegas
Renaissance Las Vegas
Trump International

Notice that Bellagio, Aria, TI, Mirage and the other MGM 4 star properties are missing.

Caesars is missing from the 4 star list as well...

Graff will be pleased!

difference between the star rating and the diamond rating. ti, mirage, mgm hold 3 stars and 4 diamonds. diamonds = AAA, stars = forbes.

No MGM-Skylofts? they did have the 5 Diamond, I see the MO is also missing

Full lists of the all the 2010 winners are in PDF at http://www.aaa.com/diamonds, it doesn't look like they have posted lists for 2011 yet though.

Not sure while they didn't all show up in the online TourBook...

2010 winners were:

Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas
Four Seasons

Green Valley Ranch
Loews Lake Las Vegas
Caesars Palace
JW Marriott
Mandalay Bay
MGM Grand
Monte Carlo
Red Rock
