Ojai Valley Inn Receives 5 Diamonds!
Ojai Valley Inn reports on their website that they have been awarded the coveted Five Diamonds by AAA.
Speaking from experience as a former employee of OVI and other luxury resorts during my previous life in hotel management, I can tell you this is no easy feat. It was only 4 or 5 years ago that the Inn held just 3 diamonds. Certainly the $90 million renovation helps, but diamonds are not awarded on looks alone. Service is a huge factor. Clearly the inn worked very hard to get where they are today and should be congratulated.
The Inn joins a handful of just 15 other hotels in California carrying AAA's highest honor. As the largest employer in the valley and the biggest source of bed tax revenue, the city and area businesses will certainly benefit from this distinction.
