Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino in North Carolina celebrated the continued progress of its $275 million expansion project with a topping-out ceremony for its new 12-story hotel tower.

The event, attended by Harrah’s Cherokee leadership, dignitaries from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and construction team members, provided an opportunity to celebrate the project’s progress and recognize the collaborative effort of those who have dedicated their time to aid in the project’s development, the casino said.

Those in attendance were also able to sign the final steel beam to leave their mark on the new amenity. The celebration included remarks from Lumpy Lambert, Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River GM, who expressed his gratitude to company stakeholders, partners and construction teams led by Robins & Morton for their continued efforts.

It’s exciting to see how far we’ve come during this expansion project since breaking ground in 2022,” said Lambert. “We are particularly grateful to our stakeholders, partners and construction teams for their continued efforts and support. They are the backbone of this project and have played a significant role in us reaching this milestone.”

Harrah’s Cherokee also recently celebrated the completion of the first phase of its expansion project in May with the opening of a new 25,000 sq. ft. casino floor and 10-table World Series of Poker – Poker Room. 

Upon completion, the second phase of the expansion project will introduce 296 additional hotel rooms, an indoor pool and fitness center, 12,000 sq. ft. rooftop restaurant featuring a 12-seat bar and wine cellar, and a 9,600 sq. ft. spa featuring six treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge, and salon. The new amenities are on schedule to be completed in late 2024.
