Three Boyd Gaming Destinations Earn AAA Four-Diamond Awards

As one of the leading companies in the gaming industry, Boyd Gaming is proud to offer its guests outstanding entertainment experiences nationwide. This year, three Boyd Gaming destinations consecutively earned esteemed awards for their premier offerings.

Ameristar Casino Resort Spa St. Charles in Missouri, IP Casino Resort Spa in Mississippi and Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa in Las Vegas have all maintained their prestigious AAA Four Diamond ratings for 2019.

This is a distinguished honor considering that only 6.3 percent of more than 27,000 hotels in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean earn a Four-Diamond rating each year. AAA describes these properties as “refined and stylish, providing upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.”

Here’s a closer look at Boyd Gaming’s three AAA Four Diamond Award winners:

Ameristar St. Charles

Ameristar Casino Resort Spa St. Charles is preparing to commemorate its iconic 25th anniversary this month, but the property has yet another reason to celebrate. Ameristar St. Charles has earned a AAA Four-Diamond rating for 11 consecutive years.

“Our hotel team prides themselves in creating the best hotel and resort experience for our guests,” said Stephanie Wheeler, Director of Hotel Operations at Ameristar Casino Resort Spa St. Charles. “We are honored to be recognized as the only Four-Diamond hotel in St. Charles, Missouri.”

Opening in 1994, Ameristar St. Charles added an all-suite hotel, 7,000 square-foot full-service spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and indoor-outdoor swimming pool deck in 2008. The property is also home to one of the country’s largest casinos at 130,000-square-feet, seven dining venues, 12 bars, an entertainment venue and a 20,000-square-foot conference center.

Ameristar St. Charles is one of the Company’s newly acquired destinations that officially joined the Boyd Gaming family in October 2018.

IP Casino Resort Spa

IP Casino Resort Spa and fine dining restaurant thirty-two seem to be on a roll. Both the hotel and the restaurant have earned AAA Four-Diamond ratings for 12 consecutive years.

Towering 32 stories over the scenic Back Bay of Biloxi, IP is the Gulf Coast’s premier entertainment resort destination. It is home to more than 1,000 elegantly appointed hotel rooms and suites (many of which have been recently renovated), live entertainment, award-winning restaurants and a first-class spa.

Another of IP’s distinctive dining concepts, tien, has also been awarded a AAA Four-Diamond rating in the past. Only 656 (or 2 percent) of 32,000 restaurants throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean hold the AAA Four Diamond rating.

“This rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff,” said Duncan McKenzie, Vice President and General Manager for IP. “We are honored to be recognized with this AAA Four Diamond rating, and we are committed to exceeding guest expectations and providing a premier travel experience.”

Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa

Great attitudes and continuous training are among the top reasons Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa has maintained its AAA Four Diamond rating since 2011.

“At Aliante, our team members are proud to be working at a Four Diamond resort,” explained Bob Brigham, Hotel Director at Aliante. “They strive for service excellence.”

Situated on more than 40 pristine acres within the Aliante master-planned community in Las Vegas, Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa features more than 200 hotel rooms and suites; five signature restaurants; a 650-seat showroom; banquet facilities that can accommodate up to 1,100 people for weddings, conventions and other special events; more than 100,000 square feet of gaming space, a resort-style pool and a 3,500 square-foot spa.

“As the Hotel Director at Aliante, I strive to ensure our team members have the tools to provide exceptional experiences for our guests,” said Brigham. “And although we work hard, we have fun working together as a team.”
