Turning Stone's The Lodge receives prestigious award

By JOLEEN FERRIS

VERONA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Turning Stone Resort and Casino is the only such destination in all of New York State to boast a distinction they received Friday - three AAA Four-Diamond Awards.

Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter accepted the three plaques at The Lodge, which was recognized for its Wildflowers Restaurant and The Tower Hotel.

A representative from AAA says that having one place earn three Four-Diamond Awards is very rare.

"The Four Diamond is very elite," said Wally Smith, Vice President of AAA. "Only about four percent of inspections result in a Four-Diamond Award."

It's the seventh consecutive award for The Tower Hotel and Wildflowers, the eighth for The Lodge.
