Andrew Lee Named Vice President of Hospitality
at Turning Stone Resort and Casino
in Upstate New York


February 17, 2005 - Andrew Lee, who has served as Turning Stone's vice president of Food & Beverage since December 2003, has been named vice president of hospitality for the resort. In his new position, he oversees the resort's spa and lodging operations, as well as the Food & Beverage operations, including menu and restaurant concepts, human resource management and daily operations. 

Before joining Turning Stone, Andrew was resident manager of The Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, Calif. He has 25 years of experience in managing fine dining and banquet conference operations at four-star and four-diamond properties, including 12 years in various capacities with the Omni Hotels chain. 

Lee grew up in Hong Kong and earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in the United States.

The Oneida Indian Nation's Turning Stone Resort and Casino is a four-season, destination resort in Upstate New York, conveniently located about 30 miles east of Syracuse. The resort offers guests a variety of choices including gaming, golf, entertainment and fine dining. Turning Stone also has nearly 100,000 square feet of meeting space and banquet facilities. 

In early 2004, Turning Stone opened The Lodge, a 98-suite luxury hotel, and Atunyote, Oneida for "The Eagle," a championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio. More recently a 19-story, 287-room tower hotel was added to the complex. 

The resort's 5,000-seat Event Center opened in early December with the sold out performance of country star Tim McGraw.
