The magazine’s annual Best of Dining & Nightlife award winners are hand-selected by casino visitors themselves, evaluating gaming resorts in a number of categories.

“We have been deliberate in developing our restaurants and entertainment venues in a way that allows us to offer experiences to our guests that are truly unique,” said Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO. “Before opening Turning Stone, many people said it would be impossible to create a world-class resort in Upstate New York, but as these awards show, we continue to prove the doubters wrong.”

Last fall, in addition to being named the “#1 Best Overall Gaming Resort” in New York, Casino Player Magazine also awarded Turning Stone wins last year in several other categories including Best Pool, Favorite Casino Resort to Vacation at, Best Rooms, Best Spa, Best Casino, Best Dealers and Best Roulette. 

Earlier this year, the internationally-renowned Forbes Travel Guide awarded the resort with three Four Star ratings and AAA bestowed three of its elite Four Diamond Awards, distinguishing Turning Stone as the only resort in the entire northeast to earn three of both prominent awards.
