WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. – Southland Casino Resort officially opened rooms in the first phase of its new hotel earlier this month.

As reported by localmemphis.com, a total of 89 rooms, including 60 suites, are now available for booking on six floors of the hotel. The remainder of its rooms (there will be 300 in total) are expected to open in September.

The new hotel is a part of a massive upgrade of the resort, which includes the opening of a new 113,000-square-foot gaming floor with more than 2,400 slot machines this past spring.

“We know our loyal casino patrons will want to take advantage of being able to stay overnight right at Southland, mere steps away with our new spacious casino floor and new bars and restaurants. We anticipate more ‘staycation’ guests from Memphis and more guests visiting from Little Rock and other parts of Arkansas, Nashville and other parts of Tennessee, northern Alabama, and even St. Louis,” Jeff Strang, Southland’s senior director of marketing, says in a media release.

According to the article, Southland, through a partnership with the Memphis Chamber of Commerce and Memphis Tourism, will be promoting to increase awareness of the hotel and casino in major markets within 300 miles.

“Southland Casino has become a strong amenity for visitors that come to the Mid-South,” said Kevin Kane, president and CEO of Memphis Tourism. “People in the Memphis area will use this property for more than just gaming. With a brand-new casino, hotel, and restaurants, this new facility is an added bonus to our tourism industry. We look at Southland Casino as a part of the Memphis community.”
