Epicurean Atlanta Earns the 2022 AAA Four Diamond Award

The immersive, appetite-driven hotel recognized for its high-end hospitality on a national level

ATLANTA (February 10, 2022) – Epicurean Atlanta has officially earned the coveted Four Diamond designation from AAA. Awarded to less than 6% of the more than 26,000 properties inspected and approved by AAA on an annual basis, this achievement ranks the newly opened, culinary-themed Epicurean Atlanta amongst a group of highly esteemed establishments.


“It’s with great honor that on behalf of the whole Mainsail Lodging & Development team, Epicurean Atlanta accepts this designation,” said Joe Collier, President & Founder of Mainsail Lodging & Development. “Our associates go to great lengths to make sure every part of the hotel is up to the highest of standards. We are proud to say that this hard work has paid off.”


In January, AAA unveiled the 2022 Diamond Ratings list. The AAA Diamond Program has Diamond-designated 54,000 hotels and restaurants, ranging on the quality of the experience, range of amenities and level of hospitality that guests can expect. Hotels awarded Four Diamonds exhibit outstanding amenities, service and an overall top-notch experience.


The recently opened hotel, part of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection, is the second location of the Epicurean Hotel brand. Merging lifestyle with design and partnering with the legendary Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, Florida, the brand offers exceptional cuisine and a singularly unique experience. Epicurean Atlanta joins Mainsail’s extensive list of AAA Four Diamond Hotels, including Epicurean Hotel in Tampa, Luminary Hotel & Co., The Karol Hotel and Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina.
