For the 15th time since it opened in 1986, the Pan Pacific Vancouver has won the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award as one of the top hotels in North America and the Caribbean. The Pan Pacific’s Five Sails Restaurant was also a Five-Diamond Award winner making the Pan Pacific the only hotel in Canada to receive both honours.
The AAA Five Diamond Award is one of the most sought after in the hospitality industry. Awarded by the American Automobile Association, the selection process involves a thorough inspection of more than 40,000 hotels by full-time, trained, professional evaluators. Less than one-half percent of all properties inspected by AAA actually receive the coveted Five Diamond Award. This year, the Pan Pacific was one of only two properties in Canada to receive the AAA Five Diamond Award in the hotel category.
“AAA’s Diamond Rating System is the most respected lodging and restaurant rating system in the industry, so we’re extremely pleased to have earned this award again,” said Steve Halliday, General Manager of Pan Pacific Vancouver. “It is recognition of the hard work that goes into creating and operating a deluxe property which meets the discerning needs of our well-travelled and discriminating guests.”
The Pan Pacific’s unparalleled commitment to service and excellence has won it numerous top awards and attracted more royalty, visiting heads of state, and entertainment luminaries than any other hotel or resort property in Western Canada.
