CHEROKEE, N.C. – Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, N.C. is set to complete its four-year expansion project this fall.
The $250 million development, which broke ground in June 2018, includes a brand-new 725-room hotel tower, 83,000-square-foot convention space, new food and beverage offerings, and more.
“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 senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos. “This expansion has been an integral component to our property and community’s growth.”
Upon completion, the expansion will include:
The Cherokee Convention Center
The resort will open a new 83,000-square-foot meetings and conventions space this fall, more than tripling the current rentable convention space. The three-level expansion offers a variety of meeting spaces for both small and large groups, all with a mountain backdrop. Highlighted by a 32,000-square-foot ballroom, the Cherokee Convention Center also features a pre-function ballroom, 26 meeting spaces, an exhibition hall, and more.
The Cherokee at Harrah’s Cherokee Resort
The resort’s fourth hotel tower, The Cherokee will begin welcoming guests this fall. Located adjacent to the new convention center, the 19-story tower will feature 725 rooms and seven suites with a design concept rooted in earth tones with accents of burnt sienna, golden hues, and charcoal gray, along with a mix of eucalyptus and walnut woods.
A 50-seat lobby bar and lounge is highlighted by a sky blue marble wall lined with cascading bottles of wine. Located on the second floor is the tower’s terrace pool, which features sweeping views of the mountains as well as the fitness center. Offering a private entrance to the pool are two exclusive 800-square-foot hospitality suites complete with full kitchens.
