4 Developments That Have Been Celebrated by Our Guests
As Turning Stone Resort Casino celebrates its 29th anniversary, it’s a great time to reflect on some of the outstanding successes of the past. These four milestones were revolutionary when we rolled them out and had a significant impact on the years that followed. Of course, they also will shape the future as we continue to grow.
Turning Stone’s newest restaurant redefines the buffet experience and provides guests with a multitude of new and exciting food options that incorporate local produce and cultural traditions from around the world. It sits right behind The Lounge with Caesars Sports, giving it prime position near the front entrance of the resort. As the name suggests, the buffet comprises seven entirely different stations: Italian, Asian, seafood, grill, comfort food, a taco bar, and dessert. Each features delicious dishes that change regularly. Each is worth visiting again and again and again.
Exit 33: Tin Rooster, The Gig & Turquoise Tiger
We consider Exit 33 to be our “entertainment district,” and it’s jam-packed with enough nightlife options to keep guests partying into the wee hours of the weekend. The space opened in 2013 and includes three main venues: Tin Rooster, with a country feel; The Gig, a rock-n-roll bar; and Turquoise Tiger, which has a throwback Big Band vibe. Exit 33 is also home to Atrium Bar and the seasonal outdoor Crescent Courtyard. On a busy weekend, this part of the resort is thumping with energy and music. Our venues continue to get better every year.
Guests can see the 253-foot Turning Stone tower from miles away—it’s actually the tallest building between Syracuse and Albany. The structure is home to our award-winning penthouse TS Steakhouse, which sits on the 21st floor. It also represents our second of three hotels on site, comprising 239 rooms and 19 suites. The hotel opened in 2004 and was remodeled most recently in 2017. All Tower accommodations feature furniture sourced from Stickley Furniture, which is made right here in Central New York. Starting later this summer, The Tower also will enable guests to check in at automated kiosks, a first for our resort.
The spacious 5,000-seat Event Center opened in 2004 and since then has welcomed stars such as Tim McGraw, Jay Leno, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley, James Taylor, and Barry Manilow, to name a few. Originally the 33,000-square-foot venue was built for concerts. Over time, we recognized the space was good for a variety of other events—shindigs ranging from charity dinners and conventions to nationally televised boxing and poker tournaments. More than anything, the Event Center gives us flexibility to host just about anything at Turning Stone.
