Cliff Castle Casino, owned and operated by the Yavapai-Apache Nation is boosting its service commitment to casino goers by adding a high-end hotel to its site.
The six-story hotel is scheduled for completion in late 2016. Co-developed by DreamCatcher Hotels, a specialty hotel brand and development company in Memphis, Tennessee, the new luxury hotel will offer 122 rooms with a mix of suites, king bed rooms, double-queen bed rooms; a pool; a multi-purpose event center for entertainment and conferences; a coffee shop; a retail outlet; and a 300-space parking garage.
Guest rooms are designed to provide guests with a comfortable and upscale lodging experience. Room features will include:
- The DreamCatcher signature mattress with luxurious Tencel+Plus™ bedding
- A spa-like raindance shower with an invigorating 120 jets of water
- A Keurig® coffee maker
- A media hub with the latest technology and a 43” HD TV
“In our 20 years of operation, Cliff Castle and its benefits to the Nation and the local community has grown tremendously – and is continuing to do so – improving the infrastructure, employment, housing, education, medical access and public safety for our tribal members in the area,” said Thomas Beauty, Chairman of the Yavapai-Apache Nation. “With the addition of the new hotel, we continue a proud tradition of providing a fun environment for the whole family and fostering economic growth for the community. This hotel will bring in an estimated 60,000 plus additional guests each year. Our community will benefit greatly from this expansion. The Nation’s Tribal Council is to be commended for their support of the new hotel.”
The casino is one of the area’s largest employers, currently employing 430 people. That number is expected to grow to 475 employees with the addition of the new hotel.
“We are thrilled to announce this new hotel because we know it will be a one-of-a-kind destination for our guests,” said Cliff Castle General Manager Mary Ketterling. “Adding an affordable luxury hotel to Cliff Castle Casino gives a new level of entertainment experience to our guests, and will help our casino continue to be a place that creates local jobs and attracts visitors to our beautiful Verde Valley community.”
