CHEROKEE, N.C. – Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort recently completed a $650 million expansion that doubled the amount of hotel rooms and gaming space.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the casino also brought in live table games; built a spa; added 10 restaurants, including a Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Paula Deen’s Kitchen and a 600-seat buffet; and spruced up the decor, giving it a sleek, contemporary feel.
“We could pick this property up and set it on the Las Vegas strip, and it would fit right in,” said Brooks Robinson, the senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s Cherokee, according to The Winston-Salem Journal.
The resort was filled with officials and visitors eager to see all the changes that have taken place in stages over the course of the past five years, while the casino remained open.
