Apache Casino Hotel celebrates Gran Opening
August 27, 2012
Apache Casino Hotel, previously formerly Fort Sill Apache Casino, has opened its
new hotel addition.
The hotel cost $27 million to build.
The hotel opened its doors to guests on August 23. However, the official grand
opening took place on August 25. Opening ceremonies included Fort Sill Apache
fire dancers. There were also showgirls and a red carpet welcome.
Built on ten acres, the new hotel offers 132 guest rooms. There is a swimming
pool, a restaurant, a bar, a day spa, and a gym for guests to enjoy. The hotel
also offers a space for conferences and events. The hotel also has a $450,000
digital sign located at the front.
The casino floor has even been redesigned during the hotel construction. To
allow for more gaming space, the casino changed the layout of the snack bar. The
casino first began operating electronic gaming machines in 1999
It is estimated that the addition of the hotel will increase visitors to the
casino. Due to this, gaming revenue is expected to increase to 20 percent.
The hotel project was funded in part by the Obama 2010 economic stimulus act.
120 jobs were created by this project.
