KEY LARGO, FL--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2013) - Guests have already had the chance to experience some of the changes at the Courtyard Key Largo, where upgrades to the guest rooms and lobby have transformed the already great property into one of the top places to stay in Key Largo. With all the upgrades, it was time for the hotel's rating to get an upgrade, too.
After the latest inspection of this hotel in Key Largo, the AAA organization awarded the hotel a Three Diamond rating, recognizing the impact of its renovations and improvements. Diamond ratings are given based on evaluations of exterior and public areas, guest rooms and guest bathrooms. Each is assigned sub-ratings based on strengths and weaknesses, and together they combine to calculate the overall rating.
The AAA inspector noted that this property is "well-maintained" and gave particularly high marks for the lobby's 24-hour market, guest service area and furniture quality and design. The flexible space allows guests to meet and mingle with colleagues, friends, family and other guests. The reinvented lobby is the centerpiece of this Key Largo hotel, which offers a number of amenities including a fishing marina, fitness center, outdoor heated pool, in-house dining at The Bistro and live music and poolside cocktails at Bogie's Tiki Bar.
Most guests visit Key Largo for the warm weather and beautiful beaches, and this hotel offers opportunities to maximize the state's best assets with diving, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins and glass-bottom boat tours. After an active day, a cozy bed and comfortable guest room await, where a private balcony provides stunning views and a 32-inch LCD cable TV and iPod dock mean relaxation is just a click away.
