Fallsview Casino Celebrates Multiple Industry Awards
Four Diamond ratings and Best of Award of Excellence
The accolades are some of the most well-known and respected in the hospitality industry, recognizing establishments for their world-class service, facilities and amenities.
"It’s an amazing achievement that proves we walk the walk in relation to service excellence,” said Greg Medulun, Director of Communications. “Our hospitality team is among the finest in the industry, and we’re very proud to share this with our Associates and the community.”
For the ninth consecutive year, Fallsview Casino’s luxury 374-room hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, earned Four-Diamond honours along with the Casino’s two fine-dining restaurants, 21 Club (8 years) and Ponte Vecchio (4 years), which were also recognized with the Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence.
CAA’s Four-Diamond award rating is among the travel authority’s highest designations for properties and restaurants. Recipients of Four-Diamond ratings undergo a rigorous evaluation during an on-site inspection conducted by CAA/AAA inspectors. The Diamond Rating system is the only evaluation program that covers Canada, the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.
The Wine Spectator, which is highly regarded among wine connoisseurs worldwide, evaluates wine lists for one of three awards. As the second-tier award, the Best of Award of Excellence gives special recognition to restaurants with lists that offer an extensive selection, and display either vintage depth or excellent breadth across several wine regions.
The complete list of national award winners will be included in the August 31 issue of Wine Spectator.
