It’s finally begun.
On Thursday, January 21, Cliff Castle Casino broke ground on a most exciting project. The new, six-story luxury Hotel is going to set the area tourism scene on its ear. This has been something Cliff Castle has wanted to do for years. The new tower will be connected to the current Casino on the south side and will offer sumptuous views and a whole new level of comfort for our Guests.

The hotel is being developed by Memphis, TN’s DreamCatcher Hotels, a veteran player in the field of specialty hotel brands. They bring an upscale sensibility to their projects, and Cliff Castle’s new Hotel will be no exception. Featuring 122 luxury suites, king rooms, double-queen rooms, a pool, multi-purpose conference rooms, coffee shop, retail outlet and 300 space parking garage, this property is guaranteed to be a game-changer in Northern Arizona’s casino industry. It will also provide a luxury option previously not offered in the Verde Valley, with proximity to Sedona, the vineyards and tasting rooms of Page Springs, Out of Africa Wildlife Park and the happening streets of old town Cottonwood. The quality will rival the hotel offerings in Sedona, with a more reasonable price tag.

“This project is monumental for our Nation as well as Northern Arizona. We’re excited to offer this chance to experience our unique area with an all new hotel, create jobs in our local economy, and bring visitors from near and far to our beautiful homelands.”

So, please pardon us while we are undergoing this exciting new addition to the Casino. It is slated for completion before the end of 2016, and don’t think we won’t throw some kind of a party!
