“This is a very rare occurrence for a newly constructed resort casino hotel,” remarked Pat Crofts, CEO of Muscogee (Creek) Nation Casinos. “We received this rating within the first six months of opening, so this is a great compliment for our team and recognizes the significant investment made by the Muscogee (Creek) Nation in this hotel.”
For hotels and restaurants designated as AAA Inspected and Approved, inspectors (after an unannounced onsite review) assign a rating of One to Five Diamonds based on the extensiveness of services, facilities and amenities typical of each rating level, indicating the type of experience to expect.
According to AAA, the Diamond ratings represent a combination of the overall quality, range of facilities and level of services offered by the property. The Four Diamond rating is described as follows: Refined, stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.
After breaking ground in 2013, the historic $365M River Spirit Casino Resort opened the Margaritaville complex in August 2016, with the luxury hotel tower opening in December 2016, and finally the theater and resort pool opened in early 2017.
Since opening the hotel tower, the resort has had guests from all fifty states stay overnight at the hotel.
“This was surprising at first,” said Crofts. “But the more we discussed it, we realized that we have had national conventions and trade groups here on several occasions.”
Crofts also mentioned that the hotel is already booking groups and conventions all the way into 2020.
“And now, with this prestigious ranking from AAA, we expect business to continue to grow at an exponential rate.”
