I used the AA ratings to help choose B&Bs in Ireland recently. I did just as well going on my own instincts. The AA places were lovely but I had a hard time telling the difference in quality between the 4 diamond place and the 3 diamond one. I think the real difference was that the 4 had television in the room. The 3 provided wonderful cake on arrival and a fabulous breakfast menu which the 4 did not. Neither was significantly different from the unrated places we stayed. Perhaps it would be easier to tell for hotels.

Have a great trip! Janet Riverview, FL
