SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Viejas Casino & Resort has officially opened their second luxury hotel
tower and expanded casino. Thousands were in attendance for the grand
opening ceremony for the new five-story tower. Separated by the
hotel pool area and the Park at Viejas––a designated space for concerts
and special events––the new hotel tower stands near its perfect partner,
Viejas’ first hotel tower, which opened in March of 2013.
The $50 million hotel tower features 109 deluxe rooms and luxury suites,
a fitness center and business center, a spacious bar and lounge, and
nine state-of-the-art meeting spaces including the Oak Ballroom,
accommodating up to 1,200 attendees. Upgraded amenities in the VIP
suites include multiple HDTVs, handcrafted furniture and décor,
oversized shower, Jacuzzi whirlpool baths, and more. This expansion
creates an additional 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor
multifunction resort space, and increases current hotel accommodations
to a total of 237 rooms and suites.
“Our new hotel tower and casino expansion brings a new level of
refinement and guest services to our community. We are grateful to our
loyal guests for taking this journey with us,” commented Viejas Tribal
Chairman Robert Welch.
The grand opening celebration included a thrilling tightrope performance
by Tino Wallenda of the world-famous Flying Wallendas. Mr. Wallenda
walked the distance between both hotel towers on a tightrope suspended
five stories high, all set to a live performance by the San Diego
Symphony. Test drives of Viejas’ featured Dream
Machine, the Aston Martin Vantage GT, were conducted throughout the
evening. The events concluded with a spectacular fireworks display and
exclusive tours of the new hotel tower.
Viejas General Manager Chris Kelley commented, “The opening of our
newest hotel tower represents an opportunity to show our guests how
valued they are and to demonstrate our team’s commitment to excellence.”
The opening of the second Viejas Hotel Tower is the crowning achievement
in a year-long development project that includes the addition of 1,000
all new slot machines. The expanded
casino floor opened on October 9, 2015.
