The Pechanga Resort and Casino was named as best hotel and casino West of Las Vegas in a recent poll.

According to the poll results, the Pechanga is also the second-best hotel and casino outside Las Vegas. The Pechanga was also named as the fourth-best hotel and casino overall, behind the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, Hard Rock Hotel Atlantic City, and Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. It is the only California gambling property to be included in both lists.

Said Andrew Maisel Sr., President of the Pechanga Development Corporation:

“It is a true honor to be voted the best in the west… Being named the best comes because of the hard work and dedication our team members demonstrate and we are grateful for each and every one of them. We all work very hard to give our guests an unparalleled resort experience where they’ll receive personalized service from our friendly team members, so it brings a lot of pride to our entire team to be recognized by readers in these polls.”

Pechanga Has Made the List Every Year

The series of polls was conducted by USA Today for its Reader’s Choice Awards and had voters from around the country flooding the poll boxes. Polling began in September and ended last October 11th. USA Today has held the polls since 2015 and Pechanga has made the list every year, even securing the top spot in 2015.

Since its opening in 2002, the Pechanga Resort and Casino has been consistently ranked as one of the best casinos in the country. This year, the Pechanga was also named as the best Southern California hotel and casino by the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, and Press-Enterprise.

Recent Massive Renovation

Located minutes from the popular Temecula Wine County, the Pechanga Resort and Casino recently underwent a massive renovation that saw the property expand on almost every operation level. Currently, it has 200,000 square feet of casino floor and has 1,000 hotel rooms and suites plus four acres of pool complex, a luxury spa, and an on-site golf course known as the Journey in Pechanga.

The property also has 12 restaurants and indoor/outdoor concerts and live events. In the past, Pechanga’s event venues have hosted high-profile acts like the Backstreet Boys, Journey, Carie Underwood, 311, Live, David Copperfield, Jerry Seinfield, and Sebastian Maniscalco.
