SAN ANTONIO - Hilton Palacio del Rio today announced they have once again attained the coveted AAA Four Diamond rating.

Only 4.8 percent of the lodging establishments throughout North America received the Four Diamond Rating.

"Not only is it our location and detail-oriented property, but it's our dedicated employees," said Robert Thrailkill, general manager, Hilton Palacio del Rio. "Our employees create the memorable experiences for our guests, which result in this type of revered recognition."

This recognition marks the 36th year the hotel has received the Four Diamond rating, with 34 of those years starting consecutively in 1976 - the inaugural year of the AAA Diamond Rating System.
