Pechanga Resort Casino Unwraps $300 Million Expansion – Doubles Size of Resort to Become Largest on West Coast
The Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians recently held an official grand opening ribbon cutting in front of the all-glass enclosed lobby. The event kicked off a stunning weekend of concerts, firework displays and VIP parties that officially opened the tribe’s $300 million resort expansion. Now the largestresort/casino on the West Coast, Pechanga Resort Casino offers guests approachable luxury with subtle elements of the tribe’s Native heritage woven into architectural and resort experiences. This major expansion added 568 AAA Four Diamond hotel rooms and suites, a 4.5-acre pool complex, two additional restaurants, a two-level luxury spa with fitness and yoga studio, and another 68,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space including the 40,000 sq. ft. Pechanga Summit. “We are setting a higher standard of excellence and taking the resort gaming experience in Southern California and beyond to another level,” said Pechanga Development Corporation President, Edith Atwood. “We are deeply grateful to our dedicated and talented Team Members and the thousands of construction workers who helped build this beautiful facility. “Of course, none of this would be here if it wasn’t for our loyal guests who continue to visit, continue to talk about their positive experiences with friends.” Pechanga hired 750 people during 2017 and early 2018 for permanent positions to staff the resort expansion areas. Jobs ranged from entry level to management roles. Pechanga Resort Casino is the third largest private employer in Riverside County with 4,750 team members.
