Yakama Legends Hotel & Casino completes expansion

Swinerton announces the opening of the Yakama Legends Hotel and Casino after a considerable expansion.

Swinerton worked closely with the Yakama Nation and with architect Bergman Walls & Associates to complete the new 200-room hotel.

The full scope of work Swinerton is completing for the Yakama Nation consists of a site redevelopment, 200 new rooms and suites, an expanded casino gaming floor, a full-service Spa, a Fitness Center, Conference Rooms, a refresh of the existing casino, restaurant upgrades, and a back-of-house expansion.

The six-story hotel anchors a $90m expansion by the tribe that is expected to create 200 new jobs. The Yakama Nation Legends Casino first opened in 1998, and currently employs more than 700 people. The rooms have a modern, upscale design that incorporates elements of tribal culture, featuring art and other displays about the Yakama Nation’s history and culture.

Future improvements expected within 2017 include a further expanded gaming floor.
