ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — del Lago Resort & Casino is among 18 other hotels and restaurants that were recognized for their Four Diamond status at an award ceremony Thursday.

AAA hosted the Four Diamond Awards Ceremony at Casa Larga in Fairport Thursday morning as 17 hotels and two restaurants were honored at the ceremony.
