Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 10:31:33 AM
Cherokee Nation Enterprises announced Monday it will build an eight-story hotel along with the 200, 000-square-foot casino that's currently under construction.
The 140-room hotel and the new casino will cost about $ 108 million and create more than 500 new jobs, which will more than double the number of employees currently working for the casino in West Siloam Springs.
David Stewart, chief executive officer of Cherokee Nation Enterprises, made the announcement on the gaming floor between the bar and the cafe in the current 50, 000-square-foot casino.
"The expansion of this magnitude will create economic developments across the area," Stewart said. Adding a 120, 000-square-foot hotel to the project was possible because of the "springboard of success of our Tulsa facility."
