We’re sure many of you have heard by now.
Cliff Castle Casino is going to build a new six-story, high end hotel!
Co-developed by DreamCatcher Hotels, a specialty hotel brand and development company in Memphis, Tennessee, the new luxury hotel will offer 122 rooms with a mix of suites, king bed rooms, double-queen bed rooms; a pool; a multi-purpose event center for entertainment and conferences; a coffee shop; a retail outlet; and a 300-space parking garage. It will be attached to the casino.
Guest rooms are designed to provide guests with a comfortable and upscale lodging experience. Room features will include:
- The DreamCatcher signature mattress with luxurious Tencel+Plus™ bedding
- A spa-like raindance shower with an invigorating 120 jets of water
- A Keurig® coffee maker
- A media hub with the latest technology and a 43” HD TV
This grand project enables us to really offer something even more special to our Castle Club Members and Guests, and promises to be a game changer for Northern Arizona’s casino industry, as well as bolstering the Verde Valley’s position as a travel destination. Along with the explosive growth of the local wine industry, the development of Old Town Cottonwood, Jerome and Clarkdale, Out of Africa and the historical and cultural sites in the area, Cliff Castle Casino will cement its place as a major area attraction when the new hotel opens in late 2016.
“In our 20 years of operation, Cliff Castle and its benefits to the Nation and the local community has grown tremendously – and is continuing to do so – improving the infrastructure, employment, housing, education, medical access and public safety for our tribal members in the area,” said Thomas Beauty, Chairman of the Yavapai-Apache Nation. “With the addition of the new hotel, we continue a proud tradition of providing a fun environment for the whole family and fostering economic growth for the community. This hotel will bring in an estimated 60,000 plus additional guests each year. Our community will benefit greatly from this expansion. The Nation’s Tribal Council is to be commended for their support of the new hotel.”
The casino is one of the area’s largest employers, currently employing 430 people. That number is expected to grow to 475 employees with the addition of the new hotel.
“We are thrilled to announce this new hotel because we know it will be a one-of-a-kind destination for our guests,” said Cliff Castle General Manager Mary Ketterling. “Adding an affordable luxury hotel to Cliff Castle Casino gives a new level of entertainment experience to our guests, and will help our casino continue to be a place that creates local jobs and attracts visitors to our beautiful Verde Valley community.”
Thanks to you, we’ve been the Number one Casino in Arizona for the last 16 years.
The best is yet to come.
