Plus, Hotel Arista achieved AAA’s new Inspected Clean designation
Hotel Arista has again received a Four Diamond rating from AAA. The luxury hotel on the CityGate campus in Naperville has earned 13 consecutive four-diamond ratings and is the only Naperville hotel to hold the distinction which is described by AAA as, “Upscale style and amenities enhanced with the right touch of service.”
And while standards for cleanliness and condition are longstanding criteria in the AAA Diamond Program inspection, the Covid-19 pandemic has birthed an enhanced housekeeping evaluation that includes objective, scientific validation of the cleanliness of common surfaces throughout hotels, using ATP surface testing. Hotel Arista achieved AAA’s new Inspected Clean designation.
In awarding the Four Diamond rating, the overall building structure – Hotel Arista is Illinois first LEED-certified hotel – is among the attributes called out by the AAA inspector, along with its upscale décor, specifically noting marble tile floors, granite columns and volume ceilings. For meetings and events, Hotel Arista is described as having an “excellent variety of ballrooms, breakout rooms and board rooms.”
Guest room attributes such as recently installed new ultra-plush mattresses and bedding, and new 50-inch HD televisions; floor, point, lamp and natural lighting; plush carpeting and excellent views also were noted in the evaluation.
Its Olympus Executive Fitness Center, which offers public membership and fitness classes as well as serving Hotel Arista guests, is described as “comprehensive” and having an “outstanding design”.
Housekeeping and maintenance of the hotel was graded with an “A”.
“We are extremely proud to enjoy continued success with AAA and, most importantly, we are proud of our talented team of associates who have kept this streak of success alive during these very challenging times,” says Hotel Arista General Manager Ryan Kingston. “The staff has done an extraordinary job maintaining the property and ensuring the safety and sanitation of the entire environment for our valued guests.”
