WaterColor Inn & Resort Stands Out with AAA Four Diamond Award

Honor also earned by WaterColor's Fish Out of Water Restaurant

Santa Rosa Beach, FL - (December 28, 2009) – For the third year in a row, WaterColor Inn & Resort is a AAA Four Diamond Hotel because of its upscale property, extensive array of amenities and high degree of hospitality and service. AAA is one of the nation's most trusted travel resources, and issues its list yearly based on comprehensive hallmarks of quality and attention to detail. WaterColor's Fish Out of Water restaurant is also a AAA Four Diamond restaurant for the third consecutive year for its "consistently world-class experience."

"The recognition from AAA confirms everyone's commitment at the resort to exceeding our guests' expectations," said WaterColor Inn & Resort General Manager Eric Sather. "This is a great way to end the year and look forward to 2010." The AAA award comes after two global honors. Earlier this month, WaterColor was also named one of Travel + Leisure's 500 World's Best Hotels for 2010, and made the Conde Nast Traveler's magazine 2010 Gold List recognizing "The World's Best Places to Stay."
