French-Inspired Inn and Signature Restaurant Receive Top Honors from AAA Western and Central New York for Sixth Consecutive Year
SKANEATELES, N.Y. – June 24, 2010 – Mirbeau Inn & Spa, the Finger Lake Region’s idyllic resort getaway, has been awarded a 2010 Four Diamond Award by the American Automobile Association (AAA) for the sixth consecutive year. Mirbeau’s acclaimed restaurant also received its sixth consecutive AAA Four Diamond Award in the restaurant category.
“AAA Four Diamond lodgings and restaurants represent the upper echelon of the hospitality industry,” said Brian Murray, western regional director of travel for AAA Western and Central New York. “These properties consistently deliver a high level of personal comfort and attention to every guest and patron, offering a wide range of special amenities and services, and feature distinctive dining experiences.”
AAA’s Four Diamond Award is one of the hospitality industry’s most prestigious honors, presented annually to the very small percentage of properties that adhere to the AAA organization’s rigorous standards. AAA sends more than 65 tourism editors to conduct field inspections on over 60,000 attractions, restaurants, campgrounds and lodging properties through the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Each candidate is anonymously judged on strict criteria including service, cleanliness, ambiance and amenities.
“It is an honor to be recognized again by AAA for the quality of our facilities, services and amenities,” said General Manager, Chris Pulito. “We are proud that AAA has again confirmed that for those seeking balance in their lives, Mirbeau Inn & Spa is a gracious sanctuary, whose restful ambience and interpretation of classic pleasures engage our guests in the delight of being truly cared for.”
Mirbeau’s award-winning restaurant has recently unveiling an entirely new dinner concept and has reopened as The French Steakhouse at Mirbeau, offering local Finger Lakes produce, meats, cheeses and other fresh farm products in a farm-to-table menu infused in the French Country style. The new concept features in-house dry-aged beef, fresh seafood flown in daily, French Country-style comfort food, and house-made breads and desserts from Mirbeau’s own bakery.
