Hotel Classification in Mexico: Until 1993 Mexico had an official government-controlled system of classification ranging from 1 star up to 5 star plus a top deluxe rating of GT (Gran Turismo). Most higher-category hotels still use the old star system although generally quality and service are those expected of a lower-rated hotel, ie a 5-star hotel is equivalent to a normal 4 star; Gran Turismo is equivalent to 5 stars. In addition, the American Automobile Association (AAA) operates a voluntary scheme in Mexico similar to that used by our own AA/RAC. This awards diamonds on a scale from 1 up to 5. AAA grades are very strict and are usually equivalent to the next highest category (so a 3-diamond hotel is probably equivalent to a normal 4 star). Where properties have no star or diamond rating, our usual arbitrary categories of £ up to £££££ are given based on rack rates, facilities and perceived quality which equate to the commonly used 1- to 5-star system. These categories serve only to compare relative standards within any given area.
