AAA Names States With the Cleanest Hotels

New award also reveals cities with best-kept hotels

August 6, 2019

A new award from AAA has revealed the state of California and the city of New York can boast about having the cleanest hotels.

To receive AAA’s Inspector’s Best of Housekeeping award and be in the top 25% of all 27,000 hotels that are inspected and approved by AAA, properties must demonstrate excellence in housekeeping and maintenance for two consecutive inspections and must be free of AAA member complaints.

California was the state with the most Best of Housekeeping awards, with 982 properties. Florida followed with 485 properties, then Texas (468), North Carolina (458), and New York (406).

The cities with the most Best of Housekeeping awards included:

  • New York (161)
  • Houston (90)
  • Washington, D.C. (78)
  • Orlando (69)
  • Charlotte, N.C. (68).

AAA instituted the new award because it found that the cleanliness and physical condition of a hotel are among the most important factors travelers consider when choosing where to stay. Learn about best practices for cleaning hotels and how to schedule the housekeeping workforce to ensure you have the ideal number of people to get the work done properly.
