In 1971 the seventh Bond film in the franchise was released, “Diamonds are Forever,” starring Sean Connery as the dashing British spy working for HRM Secret Service. This film made its mark on pop culture, and will continue to do so.
A few years later in 1977, AAA introduced the Diamond Rating system that it would use to rate lodgings across the United States and the World. AAA Defines a Four Diamond property as such, “these establishments are upscale in all areas. Accommodations are progressively more refined and stylish. The physical attributes reflect an obvious enhanced level of quality throughout. The fundamental hallmarks at this level include an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail.” Now if that doesn’t define the Pfister, what does?
That first year The Pfister Hotel, in Milwaukee, WI won the “Four Diamond Award” and has continued to do so for the next 35 years. Here we are in 2011 celebrating our 35th win. The Pfister Hotel is among a very rare collection of hotels worldwide to have held this honor, consecutively, since the awards conception. Only 14 hotels have held this record. Not only that, but the Pfister Hotel was the first in the state of Wisconsin to receive this accolade.
“This is a great honor for the hotel to receive this award, and we accept it humbly with our thoughts on the future.” says General Manager, Joe Kurth. The entire Pfister team takes pride in the award. Many associates helped hang the award in the entrance to the hotel just as many have helped us earn it each year. This award wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our staff throughout the years. Their diligence, determination, and commitment to excellence are what keeps the AAA Four Diamond award coming to the Pfister Hotel.
So at the Pfister Hotel, it seems that Diamonds are Forever, at least the ones awarded by AAA.
