JIVDC is remodelling the existing Jamul Casion to construct a new 16-storey hotel comprising 200 rooms, including 52 suites.

The hotel will also include a rooftop pool and hot tub, a restaurant, lobby bar, a fitness centre, a spa and salon, and a banquet room.

The project also includes a new 25,500ft² event centre, as well as associated parking and infrastructure. The existing second and fourth floors of the buildings will be removed, while the third floor will be expanded to accommodate the event space and associated lounge areas.

Other facilities on the third floor will include a multi-purpose/bingo hall, back-of-house area, and restrooms.

Jamul Casino president and general manager Mary Cheeks said: “It’s very rewarding to see Jamul Casino’s success recognised by this team of lenders. This comes at an exceptional time as we begin building a beautiful new hotel connected to the Casino.”
