TUCSON The Pascua Yaqui Tribe will break ground this month on a hotel and convention center next to their Casino Del Sol at 5655 W. Valencia Road. The groundbreaking is scheduled for 3 p.m. Feb. 9th.



The Sol Casinos Hotel and Convention will cost $98 million to build the 161,000-square-foot facility scheduled to open in fall 2011. It will include 215 luxury hotel rooms, a 1,500-guest convention center, an international buffet, an upscale steakhouse, an exercise facility with a full-service spa, an outdoor pool and a multilevel parking structure. There is a long term plan to add a golf course.

Sol Casinos CEO Wendell Long said the convention center will not compete with the city-run Tucson Convention Center because each is targeting a different market.

Long said "The Tucson people have been very good to us, and it is going to be an upgrade of the facilities for our current customers in Tucson. We are always hearing requests that visitors want to spend the night, whether it is for the gaming or going to a concert, so this is going to make it a much nicer facility for them."

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe also operates Casino of the Sun, Casino Del Sol, the 5,000-seat Anselmo Valencia (AVA) Amphitheater and the Del Sol Marketplace.
