Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina has announced its $250m expansion project is close completion.
The project – which broke ground in June 2018 – will see the addition of 83,000 sq ft of convention space as well as 725 hotel rooms and a parking garage, and is expected to be completed this autumn.
“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 SVP and general manger 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. We look forward to welcoming both new and returning visitors to see the results of this project.”
Several elements of the expansion have already launched including two new bars – the Myst Bar and Wicked Weed Brewpub – a 34- table World Series of Poker (WSOP) Poker Room, and a new sportsbook featuring a 90 ft ultra-HD screen, chairs with USB charging ports and full beverage service.
