SAN DIEGO—Several hundred guests attended the grand opening of Viejas Hotel this week in San Diego, Calif.
The five-story, $36 million hotel is located on the east side of Viejas Casino, and is one of only three hotels currently under construction in San Diego County. Construction of the hotel created over 400 local construction jobs and more than 60 ongoing local hotel operations jobs.
The hotel has 99 rooms and 29 suites; a pool and hot tub, with a patio area and cabanas; a business center; fitness room; and room service. The project also includes a lobby area that connects to Viejas Casino.
“Viejas Casino opened in 1991 and has become one of the most successful casinos in California,” said Viejas Tribal Chairman Anthony R. Pico, who thanked the construction workers, casino guests, and community for their support. “That kind of success is not achieved alone. It requires dedication and team work. The addition of Viejas Hotel is a major milestone on our journey together.”
