The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) is affiliated with the American Automobile Association (AAA), which uses diamonds to rate properties, so you may see hotels reporting they received five diamonds from the CAA. Hotels apply to be rated, then inspectors secretly come to evaluate the property. Diamond ratings, from one to five, are given depending on the service and amenities. A one-diamond hotel would be a basic, clean accommodation, but a five-star is supposed to offer the ultimate in luxury and sophistication. Canada luxury hotels will advertise how many diamonds that they have received.
