The Cordish Companies’ Flagship Live! Hotel Earns Prestigious Four Diamond Rating From AAA

Sought-After Rating Recognizes Live! Hotel as One of the Nation’s Most Distinguished Accommodations for Lavish Amenities and Dedication to Guest Experience

The Cordish Companies today announced that its flagship LIVE! HOTEL, located at Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Maryland, has earned the coveted AAA Four Diamond Rating to become the only accommodation in Anne Arundel County and the BWI Airport District, in the heart of the Baltimore/Washington corridor, to receive this recognition.

Nationwide, only six percent of the 27,000 AAA Inspected & Approved hotels receive the Four Diamond status. With this achievement, Live! Casino & Hotel joins a prestigious group of high-end luxury hotels to hold this rating.

“The first priority for all of our properties is to provide our guests with a best-in-class experience every time they visit. We are proud to receive this incredible honor for Live! Hotel and to be nationally-recognized as a premiere luxury destination among the elite in the industry,” said David Cordish, Chairman of The Cordish Companies. “This award comes as Live! Hotel celebrates its first year anniversary and is a true testament to the dedication of our team members, who work tirelessly every day to provide remarkable service to everyone that walks through our doors.”

According to AAA, Four Diamond hotels are distinguished for being stylish, having extensive amenities and offering a high degree of attention to hospitality and service. AAA’s ranking system is based on a comprehensive list of attributes pertaining to cleanliness, comfort and hospitality from professional inspectors who conduct unannounced, on-site evaluations.

The flagship Live! Hotel features 310 guest rooms, including 50 luxury suites, an event center, meeting spaces, dining options and a day spa and salon, just steps away from one of the largest commercial casinos in the country. With its premier location next to Arundel Mills Mall, Live! Hotel provides the ideal setting for those seeking dynamic gaming entertainment, world-class shopping and luxury accommodations.

Equipped with the latest in technology and amenities, each Guest Room at Live! Hotel provides a comfortable atmosphere for all travelers. The Live! Spa offers day and overnight guests a comfortable escape to relax and recharge with a variety of therapeutic treatments, including the ability to book one of the five spa-level suites that feature private in-room treatment areas. The spa-level also features a fully-equipped fitness room that now offers a Peloton experience, locker area, steam rooms, as well as a full-service beauty salon with an outdoor patio.

Live! also offers Maryland’s only private, invitation-only gaming room. Club 21 is the pinnacle of luxury for gaming enthusiasts that offers sweeping views of Baltimore and the surrounding region from the tallest building in Anne Arundel County.

Live! Hotel guests can also view The Cordish Art Collection, a 40+ piece contemporary art collection from world renowned artists, including Andy Warhol, which has been described by The New York Times as an art museum experience in the comfort of a hotel.

The Event Center at Live! Hotel is currently undergoing an expansion to double in size to become a 3-story, 4,000-seat venue, offering 40,000-square-feet of customizable meeting, banquet, concert and event space.
