(Verona, NY- April 2013) For the eighth consecutive year, The Lodge at Turning Stone has achieved the AAA Four Diamond rating, while the Tower Hotel and Wildflowers Restaurant each received their seventh consecutive Four Diamond rating.
Turning Stone holds the distinction as the only resort in New York State with three AAA Four Diamond venues on a single campus. Wildflowers is the only AAA Four Diamond restaurant in Central New York.
Less than four percent of the 59,000 AAA Diamond Rated establishments throughout North America and the Caribbean 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 than any other rating entity.
Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter said, “We are delighted that AAA has, once again, awarded these honors to Turning Stone Resort Casino. Winning these awards is a testament to the quality of our employees. The Oneida Nation’s continued investment in making Turning Stone a unique world-class resort is carried out every day as our team members provide the highest level of guest service. On behalf of our 4,500 employees, I would like to thank AAA for these awards.”
Wally Smith, Vice President of AAA Western and Central New York said, “What these three properties have accomplished is nothing short of extraordinary. Their first-class attention to detail, luxurious amenities and exceptional guest experiences put them in the upper echelon of New York’s hospitality industry.”
