“This is the first luxury hotel in eastern San Diego County,” said Tribal chairman Anthony Pico. ” We’re really in the market and competition is very good because it just delivers a better product to our guests.”
The new hotel will feature 29 suites and 99 rooms, with 60 percent of the rooms being provided free to high rollers. For those who are not big gamblers, rooms may be booked starting at $129 a night.
The Viejas Casino and Resort is now the sixth hotel/casino in San Diego County. Others include Valley View Casino and Hotel, Harrah’s Rincon, and the Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino.
