The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is building a new hotel as part of Casino Del Sol. The hotel has been under construction, but it has reached a very important milestone as the final beam of steel has been installed on the top of it. In other words, that means that the construction of the hotel is officially halfway done. It also means that the structural phase of the construction of the hotel is completed.
The 17-foot long beam was signed by the construction team at McCarthy, team members of the Casino Del Sol, and the members of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. This 17-foot long beam was then lifted to the top of the hotel’s framework in order to signify a completed phase of construction.
The CEO of Casino Del Sol, Kimberly Van Amburg, stated that reaching that milestone was something all sides had been looking forward to. Furthermore, he added that if it weren’t for the team’s hard work, they would have been in the home stretch. Finally, he stated that the signatures of all the people who had helped to build the hotel would be the permanent part of the hotel structure.
About the Hotel
The name of the hotel is Estrella at Casino Del Sol, and it sits on 2.2 acres of land adjacent to the Casino venue. The hotel will have a total of six floors with 151 rooms that have a breathtaking view of the Sonoran Desert landscape where this property is located. In other words, visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy beautiful sights from their hotel rooms while they are resting from the various activities located nearby.
Some of the amenities that are also planned to be a part of Estrella at Casino Del Sol include an arcade, a fitness center, and a meeting room. Furthermore, the hotel will also include a pool which is family-friendly and has two poolsides — one for kids and the other one for adults, containing a bar as well.
The hotel will match the casino with its Sonoran Desert design, but there will be a modern touch to it, making the whole area look refreshed and modern. The colors of the building will be complementary when compared to the mountain backdrop of the desert, making the building a really pleasant sight both inside and outside. The fresh and clean interior and exterior are particularly welcoming towards the newcomers who want to stay at this hotel.
Robert Valencia is the Chairman of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, and he stated that Estrella at Casino Del Sol is a representation of how the commitment of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe resulted in world-class hospitality and one of the best hotels and recreation facilities in Tuscon. He added that topping off the new hotel was a great achievement that signifies that the door-opening day was approaching and that they should prepare to welcome new guests to their new hotel.
However, the hotel is not the only projects related to hospitality that is planned as a part of Casino Del Sol. In fact, there is a 75-space RV park which is planned as an expansion of the Casino Del Sol’s meeting space, and an Event Center that will be called the Sunset Room. The event center will be a sister property to Casino of the Sun. The projects broke ground at the time the hotel building commenced, and significant progress has been made so far. In other words, Casino Del Sol will have a lot to offer when the hotel and other projects are finished. The opening date is set to be sometime during November 2019.
