TUCSON, Ariz. (Nov. 18, 2020) – Casino Del Sol, a premier entertainment destination in the Southwest, has won a coveted Gold Award in the 2020 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards, representing the best in the travel industry. Casino Del Sol was honored in the overall–casino resort/hotel category and is the only Arizona property to be recognized.

I am very proud of our entire staff that continues to work so hard to provide top-notch service to our guests.”

With entries from around the world, the Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry. In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the extensive experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all. Casino Del Sol is the only Magellan Award winner in the overall–casino resort/hotel category.

This Gold Award is added to an extensive list of honors Casino Del Sol has received in 2020, including Best Casino and Best Dining Experience in the Arizona Daily Star’s Readers’ Choice Awards, Best Casino in Tucson Weekly’s Best of Tucson contest, second place for Best Casino Hotel in the country and fifth place for Best Casino Outside of Las Vegas in the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards, nine Best of Gaming Awards from Casino Player Magazine, AAA’s Four Diamond designation and a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for their fine dining restaurant, PY Steakhouse.
