Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, North Carolina, USA, is set to complete its four-year expansion project this autumn. The $250m development, which broke ground in June 2018, includes a new 725-room hotel tower, 83,000-square-foot (7,710sqm) of convention space, new food and beverage offerings and more.
“We are thrilled to see this project come to completion and to be able to offer our guests new amenities and offerings,” said Brooks Robinson, regional senior vice-president and general manager of Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos. “This expansion has been an integral component to our property and community’s growth and helps us further show that Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is truly a destination that is unlike any other in the Carolinas.”
Upon completion, the expansion will include:
The Cherokee at Harrah’s Cherokee Resort
The resort’s fourth hotel tower, The Cherokee will be adjacent to the new convention centre, and its 19-storey tower will feature 725 rooms and seven suites.
A 50-seat lobby bar and lounge are highlighted by a sky-blue marble wall lined with bottles of wine and a terrace pool features views of the mountains as well as the fitness centre. Offering a private entrance to the pool are two exclusive 800-square-foot hospitality suites complete with full kitchens.
The Cherokee Convention Centre
The resort’s meetings and conventions space will be more than tripled by the autumn and a three-level expansion will offer a variety of meeting spaces for both small and large groups. Highlighted by an almost 3,000sqm ballroom, the Cherokee Convention Centre also features a pre-function ballroom, 26 meeting spaces and exhibition hall.
In addition to the expansion project, new gaming amenities and food and beverage offerings have already debuted earlier this year.
