Three of a Kind: Two casinos, one restaurant earn Diamond honors

Two Arizona casinos and a restaurant are shining brighter, thanks to AAA. The travel agency recently bestowed Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino in Laveen, Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort in Flagstaff and Che-Ah-Chi restaurant in Sedona with its prestigious Four Diamond award.

Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino and Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort are the only AAA Four Diamond properties in Laveen and Flagstaff. With the addition of these properties, there are now six casino resorts that boast the Four Diamond rating in Arizona. Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino , Radisson Fort McDowell Resort & Casino, Talking Stick Resort and Casino del Sol Resort are the four other casino resorts that have earned AAA’s Four Diamond distinction.

Che-Ah-Chi is Sedona’s second Four Diamond restaurant. L'Auberge Restaurant on Oak Creek is the only other restaurant to earn this AAA honor in Sedona.

“These properties have exceeded the expectations of the most discriminating traveler – the AAA inspector,” said Linda Gorman, director of communications and public affairs director for AAA Arizona who oversees the program in Arizona. “Earning the Four Diamond award is one of the highest accolades in the travel industry.”

AAA has been inspecting and approving lodgings for more than 75 years. The Diamond Rating system is the only system that covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. It is also one of only two that conducts physical, on-site evaluations by anonymous inspectors. On average, AAA inspectors evaluate nearly 900 hotels and restaurants per year in Arizona. This contributes to the evaluation of more than 58,000 establishments annually nationwide.
