Mohegan announced Monday that its Mohegan Sun Pocono property will be rebranded as Mohegan Pennsylvania. The move follows a similar "refresh" of the resort developer and manager's corporate name, going from Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment to Mohegan.
Ray Pineault, CEO of Mohegan, stated: “Many of our partners, stakeholders and valued guests commonly refer to our brand as ‘Mohegan’, so the new title is a strategic decision that truly encapsulates our capabilities and values.”
“To also create synergy across the Mohegan portfolio, especially as we continue to grow in line with the Mohegan Tribe’s vision, destinations like Mohegan Pennsylvania have also rolled out a rebrand,” he added.
Pineault said the refreshed name change follows the roll-out of Project Starlight, which will soon include the completion of a $10 million renovation to Mohegan Pennsylvania’s 237-room hotel.
Anthony Carlucci, President & GM of Mohegan Pennsylvania, also commented: “There is so much to be excited about as we approach the new year that excitement stems from our dedicated team and leadership.”
“With a new name, revamped hotel, new attractions and the continued unrivaled guest service that has exemplified our brand and all Mohegan properties, we’re thrilled about the next phase of Mohegan Pennsylvania,” he said.
According to Pineault, Project Starlight includes The Hive Taphouse, a new bar and live music venue with various flat screens for the big game, 20+ beer options and a full dining menu. The Hive Taphouse is also home to Topgolf Swing Suites, where guests can play virtual golf on PGA courses. A new seasonal outdoor terrace bar, Embers Terrace, also opened this past summer.
Mohegan Pennsylvania, owned by Mohegan, was the first property to bring gaming to the state in 2006, and has become “one of the premier entertainment, gaming, shopping and dining destinations” since then, according to the company.
It is located on 400 acres in Plains Township and it features a 238-room hotel with an on-site spa and an adjacent 20,000-square-foot Convention Center. It has 67,000 square feet of gaming space, including nearly 60 live table games, and more than 1,700 slot machines and electronic table games.
