Oneida Nation Homelands (NY) (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Turning Stone Resort Casino has been honored with three AAA Four Diamond awards, prestigious accolades granted to less than four percent of the organization’s approved properties. Awarded to The Lodge at Turning Stone, the Tower Hotel, and Wildflowers Restaurant, these latest honors distinguish Turning Stone as the only resort in New York State with three AAA Four Diamond venues at one property.
Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter and the employees of Turning Stone were presented with AAA Four Diamond plaques by AAA Western and Central New York President and CEO Tony Spada at a ceremony held today.
This is the ninth consecutive year that The Lodge at Turning Stone achieved the AAA Four Diamond rating, and the eighth consecutive Four Diamond rating for the Tower Hotel and Wildflowers Restaurant. Wildflowers has earned the distinction of being the only AAA Four Diamond restaurant in all of Central New York.
“These prestigious awards are a true testament to the quality of our employees and our dedication to maintaining Turning Stone as a unique, world-class resort that is enjoyed by our guests and local communities,” said Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “Our team members strive every day to provide the highest level of guest service, and I sincerely thank AAA for its recognition of our commitment to excellence.”
Turning Stone is among the less than four percent of the 59,000 AAA-approved hotels and restaurants throughout North America and the Caribbean that earn the prestigious AAA Four Diamond rating. AAA’s Diamond Rating System is the only ratings system that covers all of North America and uses professionally-trained inspectors to evaluate each property using guidelines made available to all establishments. AAA evaluates more properties annually than any other rating entity.
“AAA Four Diamond recipients are members of an elite group, demonstrating commitment to superior service, premier comfort, extraordinary surroundings and extensive amenities,” said AAA Western and Central New York President and CEO Tony Spada. “Having three AAA Four Diamond properties in one resort is beyond impressive and exemplifies the level of excellence guests can expect at Turning Stone.”
