Key Club receives 32nd AAA Four Diamond Award
The Resort at Longboat Key received its 32nd AAA Four Diamond Award April 7.
“To receive this, the hotel provides excellent service, hospitality, cleanliness and goes above and beyond in customer service,” AAA Field Manager Don Schwartz, who presented the award, said. “It’s an exclusive club.”
Only 5.4% of the nearly 30,000 approved AAA hotels receive this distinction, and even fewer have the longstanding recognition of the Key Club.
“This says a lot about the hard work that you do to make a difference,” General Manager Jeff Mayers said. “It’s all about taking care of the guests, and, for that, we’ve been recognized.”
