TULSA, Okla. — Officials at Muscogee (Creek) Nation announced River Spirit Casino Resort recently received the prestigious Four Diamond Award from AAA. The Four-Diamond rating places River Spirit Casino Resort in the top 6% of all AAA-approved properties in North America. The resort has received this designation every year since the hotel opened in 2017.

“To achieve this rating for the third consecutive year is a great compliment for our team,” remarked Pat Crofts, CEO of Muscogee (Creek) Nation Casinos. “We received this rating within the first six months of opening in 2017, again in 2018, and this year even after having to close the hotel for a few weeks because of the historic flooding.”

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.

Diamond ratings appear in online travel guides, on the club’s website and via the AAA Mobile app as well as the printed Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma Tour Book guide.

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 January 2017, and finally, the theater and resort pool opened in early 2017.

River Spirit Casino Resort also sits at No. 1 on the U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Tulsa and Best Oklahoma Resort. The resort was also recognized as the most Uber’d destination in 2018 and listed as one of the 2018 top companies to work for in Oklahoma Magazine.

“This designation continues to recognize the significant investment made by the Muscogee (Creek) Nation in this hotel,” said Crofts. “And now, with this prestigious ranking from AAA for the third year in a row, we expect business to continue to grow at an exponential rate.”
