TULALIP, Wash. – Tulalip Resort Casino, in the Pacific Northwest, has been honored with the AAA Four Diamond Award. Nationally recognized as one of the most coveted symbols of excellence in the hospitality industry, the AAA Diamond Rating System describes a property’s level of service, comfort, cleanliness and safety.

“It is an honor to be recognized with this prestigious award,” said Ken Kettler, president and COO of Tulalip Resort Casino. “This Four Diamond Rating is a reflection of our staff’s hard work and dedication to excellent customer service.”

“We thrive on providing our guests with Tulalip hospitality, and receiving this award is a result of the attention to detail that we demonstrate in providing each guest with a first-class experience,” added Brett Magnan, executive vice president of Tulalip Resort Casino.

According to AAA, “Four Diamond Award winners know the language of quality as they consistently deliver a luxury experience, complete with a high level of service, amenities and impressive surroundings.” AAA Four Diamond hotels represent less than four percent of the more than 31,000 AAA Approved and Diamond Rated properties.
