The 400-room Hilton, which opened in January, was recently awarded the coveted rating, making it the only large-scale hotel in West Palm Beach to receive the honor. Only 5.7 percent of the nearly 28,000 hotels approved by AAA make the Four Diamond list.

To celebrate the accolade, the Hilton is holding a special champagne toast. Throughout the month of August, guests will receive 10 percent off a glass of bubbly at Galley, the hotel’s nautical-inspired bar every day at 4 p.m., the hotel said.

In all, 15 local hotels have earned AAA Four Diamond award.

Three local hotels – Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa in Manalapan, the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, and The Breakers in Palm Beach – received AAA Five Diamond rating.

The 400-room hotel received a 2015 Hilton Hotels & Resorts Brand Award for the Best Launch Marketing Campaign.

This annual recognition celebrates the accomplishments by Hilton hotels and individuals around the world.

“We are extremely honored to receive this award,” said John Parkinson, general manager, Hilton West Palm Beach. “It’s a true testament to the team and culture that we have built in a short amount of time and this award truly embodies the spirit of our property. This is just a preview for what is to come.”

The convention center may also play host to a Hillary Clinton primary party Tuesday night, with the Democratic candidate’s team saying she’ll be watching the vote at the venue.

Hilton West Palm Beach welcomed its first guests in January, marking the end of a decade long effort to build a hotel within walking distance of the convention center’s banquet halls and meeting rooms.
