TUCSON, Ariz. — A new hotel at Casino Del Sol is open to the public.

The 151-room hotel, Estrella, broke ground 18 months ago. It sits on land adjacent to Casino Del Sol and is connected to the casino with a covered walkway.

The hotel also has an outdoor pool patio, a 100-foot water slide plus two conference centers.

“Almost exactly eight years ago, we opened the resort, spa and conference center at Casino Del Sol and today we are opening our second hotel, Estrella at Casino Del Sol,” said Chairman of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Robert Valencia. “We are grateful for the support of the Southern Arizona community over the years which has allowed us to continue to expand our hospitality offerings with incredible momentum.”

The opening is expected to bring more than 70 new jobs, as well as more options for guests who visit the area.

“Guests are going to love this new property,” said CEO of Casino Del Sol, Kimberly Van Amburg. “Estrella will allow us to meet our increased demand for rooms, and the additional amenities will offer our guests new fun activities such as the arcade and water slide, as well as more flexibility with corporate meetings and events.”
