Gateway Canyons Awarded AAA Four Diamond Rating



GATEWAY, Colo. - November 29, 2012 - Cradled in the shadow of the Palisade rock formation and fringing the Moab Desert, Gateway Canyons – the world’s first and only discovery resort created by Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks – is thrilled to receive the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award, recognizing their steadfast commitment to premium service and personalized guest experiences. As a first time participant in the AAA Diamond Rating System, Gateway Canyons is the only resort located on the Western Slope of Colorado to be awarded this honor.

“We are very pleased with the results of our first AAA evaluation,” said Rudy Sharp, Vice President and Managing Director of Gateway Canyons. “It's a very rigorous process and achieving a Four Diamond rating is a testament to Gateway Canyons’ status as a truly world-class resort destination.”

North America’s premier travel and culinary classification program, the AAA Diamond Rating System provides detailed information to guide traveler’s accommodation and dining selections based on meticulous evaluations by AAA professional inspectors. Reserved for superior properties that exemplify excellence in every facet of operation, Gateway Canyons – part of the Noble House Hotels & Resorts collection – exceeded the highest level of expectations in the annual ratings and met 27 essential requirements based on cleanliness, comfort and safety. Less than five percent of the 31,000 plus lodgings approved by the American Automobile Association achieve this coveted designation, showcasing the extensive qualifications of this prestigious award.

Catering to the most discerning traveler, guests of Gateway Canyons choose from a collection of once in a lifetime experiences, with privileged access to more than 100 years of automotive history at the Gateway Colorado Auto Museum, scenic air tours aboard luxury aircraft throughout the majestic red rocks of Colorado and Utah, as well as personalized, guided excursions through the onsite Adventure Center. Enlightened travelers are also entertained by daily showings of “The Founders Series” at the Discovery Theater – an ongoing selection of Discovery Channel’s most compelling award winning films hand-picked by John Hendricks himself, from more than 40,000 hours of video in the Discovery Library.

Enveloped in the tall cottonwood trees and irrigated green fields, adobe-style accommodations feature a total of 58 guest rooms with the newly completed Kayenta Lodge and freshly renovated Kiva Lodge, offering a variety of significant additions and luxurious touches, from pass through fireplaces and custom-crafted Peruvian furniture, to over-sized patios equipped with hot spring spas, gas fireplaces and breathtaking views of the iconic Palisade rock formation. Additional accommodations will be available in June 2013, with scheduled completion of the newly constructed Palisade Casitas.
