SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Viejas Casino & Resort will be officially opening their second luxury
hotel tower on Friday, October 30, 2015. Thousands will be 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 spring of 2013.
The new $50 million hotel tower will feature 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 for events. This expansion creates
an additional 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor multifunction
resort space, and will increase current hotel accommodations to a total
of 237 rooms and suites.
“Our new hotel tower and casino expansion raises the bar for our guests
and delivers an experience that’s unmatched in the San Diego area,”
commented Viejas Tribal Chairman Robert Welch.
The grand opening celebration will include a thrilling tightrope
performance by Tino Wallenda of the world-famous Flying Wallendas. Mr.
Wallenda will walk the distance between both hotel towers on a tightrope
suspended five stories high. Test drives of Viejas’ featured Dream
Machine, the Aston Martin Vantage GT, will also be conducted
throughout the evening. The events will conclude with a spectacular
fireworks display and exclusive tours of the new hotel tower.
Viejas General Manager Chris Kelley commented, “This dream became a
reality through the steadfast contributions of hundreds of skilled
workers and dedicated team members. It is an accomplishment for which we
can all be proud.”
The opening of the second Viejas Hotel Tower will be 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.
