The Mirage: AAA Diamond Rating Inspection

Posted by detroit1051

Past posts on AAA Diamond Ratings and Mobil Star Ratings generated so many comments, that we might as well start a new topic. The 9/9/07 RJ follows the AAA inspector as he checks out The Mirage on its regular review.

"Unwilling to name competitors by name, Vincent said the association is the only company sending inspectors to all the properties it rates"
You'll recall in posts last year, we talked about Mobil's erroneous comments about Wynn Las Vegas, including reference to a "5th floor swimming pool", which showed that an inspector had not actually visited Wynn. Mobil subsequently corrected its errors.
MGM Mirage management should be happy with this story.

Thanks Detroit.

Obviously, I run a ratings Web site and I read this article with interest. While we have a ratings system that allows for similar type scoring, I personally find the attached comments to be the most interesting/useful part of the review.

Am I the only one who thinks that guy has the best job ever? Anyway, I digress...

I also left a similar comment in the RJ article, but the guy's clearly taking shots at Mobil and their star rankings. Yes, he has a point in that travel sites have pretty much made stars devoid of all merit, but Mobil's still hold strong.
