The Rochester Business Journal and The Daily Record Reader Ranking Awards has named the del Lago Resort & Casino as the top casino resort in the region.
While the gambling venue was recognized as the best casino, it was also in the top three best event meeting facilities and best hotel facility in the region.
The awards were announced following a vote from the readers.
“The awards celebrate the best of the best and we are grateful to have received top honors as the region’s premier casino for the third year in a row,” del Lago GM Lance Young said.
“We continually strive to provide our guests with the best experience and we look forward to offering them even more with the opening of DraftKings Sportsbook later this summer.”
The award ceremony was held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. There were more than 13,000 nominations and 47,000 votes cast this year.
