Turning Stone Resort Casino Earns Three AAA Four Diamond Awards, Making it the Only Resort in the Northeast with This Distinct Honor

Upstate New York’s premier destination resort has again been honored with a trio of highly-esteemed AAA Four Diamond Awards for The Lodge, The Tower and Wildflowers restaurant, which is the only Four Diamond restaurant in Central New York. Turning Stone is the only resort in the northeast with three AAA Four Diamond venues at one property.

Continuing its legacy of providing exemplary guest service and world-class amenities, Turning Stone Resort Casino has again been honored with three AAA Four Diamond Awards in recognition of its elite standards at The Lodge, The Tower, and Wildflowers restaurant. Recognizing the culture of excellence at Turning Stone and distinguishing it as the only resort in the northeast with three AAA Four Diamond venues at one property, this distinct recognition is granted to less than six percent all AAA approved hotels and only two percent of its restaurants.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized as New York’s only resort with three AAA Four Diamond Award venues,” said Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO. “We never rest on our laurels or take earning accolades like the Four Diamond Award for granted. It is a testament to our tenured and unwavering commitment of providing guests with the best world-class experience every day.”

Selection for these awards places Turning Stone among the mere 3.8 percent of the 59,000 AAA-approved hotels and restaurants throughout North America and the Caribbean that receive the esteemed AAA Four Diamond rating. AAA’s Diamond Rating System is the only ratings system that covers all of North America, using professionally-trained inspectors who evaluate each property based on guidelines available to all establishments. AAA evaluates more properties each year than any other rating entity.

Turning Stone Resort Casino is also the only property in the northeast with both a Forbes Four Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide, a leading authority on luxury travel, and three AAA Four Diamond venues at one property. The resort has also recently been recognized by Condé Nast Johansens, Golf Digest, Wine Spectator Magazine, OpenTable and Trip Advisor for its superior amenities and service.
