ATLANTA -- Several metro Atlanta hotels and restaurants have earned top ratings from the American Automobile Association.

AAA gave Four and Five Diamond Award status for 2012 to 20 hotels and 12 restaurants, the company announced Tuesday. The ratings are the travel authority's highest designation for hotels and restaurants.

The AAA Four and Five Diamond establishments make up just 3.8 percent of AAA/CAA Diamond Rated hotels, and 0.3 percent of AAA/CAA Diamond Rated restaurants in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

The honors will be bestowed Feb. 8 at a ceremony in Buckhead.
