At site of planned 23-story hotel, luxury spa
By Diane Mulligan
On Wednesday, February 8, at 10:30 a.m., CEO of Monarch Casino Resort John Farahi, and Black Hawk Mayor David Spellman, cut the ribbon and broke ground for the new Monarch Casino 23-story resort and world-class spa. This will mark the final phase of the Monarch Casino Black Hawk expansion which will dramatically change the entryway to the city. The 23-story hotel tower will rise in the same location as the former Monarch parking structure that was imploded in safe- and spectacular- fashion Dec. 21.
More than 500 construction workers will build the hotel over the next 24 months. Once open, Monarch will hire an additional 1,000 team members to run the new resort. Right now, Monarch has 35 openings, so is a great opportunity to literally get in on the ground floor.
Black Hawk Mayor Spellman said this morning, “Once this luxury hotel is finished, it will help position Black Hawk as a premier resort destination in Colorado.”
The hotel tower and casino expansion project will nearly double the approximately 30,000 existing square feet of casino space and add approximately 500 guest rooms and suites, an upscale spa and pool facility, a total of four restaurants, and several new bars.
“Today we mark the beginning of our hotel tower construction, the next phase in our approved master plan to bring a world-class resort to the Black Hawk market. Located just 45 minutes from downtown Denver, we look forward to introducing Coloradans to our premium product and exceptional service,” said John Farahi, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Monarch Casino & Resort, Inc.
