On Wednesday the new hotel at Santa Ana Casino is scheduled to open. When the hotel officially opens, 200 new employment positions will be created.
The Santa Ana Casino Hotel is owned by the Santa Ana Pueblo.
The new hotel will offer 204 guest rooms. There are seven floors. In addition to guest rooms, there is also space for meetings and events. Retail shopping space. As well as steakhouse. The price to complete the project was $85 million. It will be offered as a new amenity to visitors of the casino.
Of the project cost, a large percentage was spent on the labor for the construction process. While the hotel was being built there were 320 construction workers employed. $45 million was spent on construction. The remainder of the money was budgeted for road and utility infrastructure, areas for maintenance and a warehouse.
Revenue from the new hotel will go to fund important programs for the Santa Ana Pueblo. Also, it will be a new source of employment for the tribe. All of this is a way to add to the economic sustainability for the tribe.
In an effort to retain employees, the new hotel will be higher wages then other nearby hotels. Staff will receive $2 to $3 more an hour than what is offered elsewhere. They will also have healthcare benefits and a free meal during each shift.
Until the new hotel was complete there were four metro area casinos owned by tribes that did not offer a hotel.
The Santa Ana Casino Hotel is estimated that the hotel will be full on the weekends. Mid week it is expected that will have 65 percent to 70 percent occupancy. Officials for the casino hotel believe that local residents will make up about 70 percent of the hotel guests.
The creation of the 230 new jobs will have a positive effect economically not only on the tribe but on residents and businesses in Sandoval County.
