Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver has received the coveted AAA Five Diamonds Award designation for 2012.

"The Five-Diamond recognition is one we accept with humility and pride," said Vito Romeo, general manager, Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver. "It is tremendous recognition of our hotel facilities and amenities, but more importantly of our staff, who are dedicated and passionate ambassadors for the Shangri-La brand, the city of Vancouver and our hospitality profession."

"AAA is pleased to recognize Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver as an exemplary member of the travel industry," said Michael Petrone, director of AAA Tourism Information Development.
