NAPLES, Fla.– The Inn on Fifth and Club Level Suites in downtown Naples, Fla. has received the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Rating.  This is the first time the luxury hotel has attained this celebrated rating, which comes following the completion of a recent $1.7 million renovation and $18 million expansion that added 32 exclusive Club Level Suites.
