Last July the Casino Del Sol began construction of a new hotel named "Estrella at Casino Del Sol". Last Friday the new hotel reached its halfway point in construction as the steel framework was finished.
Construction of the new hotel at Casino Del Sol reached the halfway point Feb. 15 as a crane lifted the final steel beam into place atop the finished steel structure. The beam had been signed by members of the tribe, members of the casino and members of the construction company at a topping off ceremony prior to its placement.
Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol, spoke to the gathering: "Reaching this significant milestone is something we've been looking forward to, and we wouldn't be in the home stretch without the team's hard work. The signatures on the beam of all who helped make this happen will now be a permanent part of the hotel structure."

On July 12 ground was broken on the new expansion project at Casino del Sol Resort, Spa and Conference Center. The Tucson casino is owned by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.
The project consists of a new hotel with an additional 151 guest rooms, a larger conference center, and a new 90 space RV Park.
A total cost for the project has not been released.
The hotel will consist of 93,200 square feet. It will have six floors. The design for the building will compliment the design of the casino. The location will be next to the casino building on 2.2 acres.
Plans include space for meetings, a fitness facility, an arcade, and a lounge. Also, a new pool deck, pool friendly to families, a pool slide, and bar. The Sonoran Desert will be the view from every guest room.
The conference room will get another 9,600 square feet.
Meeting the current demands of guests is the reason behind the project. The casino wants to be able to provide them with a better experience. To bring them more amenities that will attract more families and places for RV camping. The expansion of the convention center will also provide for better service for people hosting and attending conventions.
The casino resort has received a AAA Four Diamond rating.

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is expanding hospitality amenities in Tucson at its casino enterprises, Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun.
In October, the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Council approved up to 150 additional hotel rooms, 90 RV sites, and a 9,600-square foot expansion of the current convention space at Casino Del Sol. In addition, a new 11,000-square foot Event Center next to Casino of the Sun will be built.
"The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is honored to have the opportunity to build new accommodations and meeting spaces for guests who visit our properties," said Robert Valencia, Chairman of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. "These additions will create more jobs and will positively impact our Tribe, its members, and Southern Arizona."
The new hotel will be located adjacent to the current Casino Del Sol facility and is estimated to have 150 rooms with its own pool area. This will allow visitors to have an additional hotel choice nearby everything Casino Del Sol has to offer.
A proposed 90-space RV park near the casino will also provide part-time and full-time RVers the opportunity to hook up and enjoy all of Casino Del Sol's amenities before they head out on the road.
The current conference center at Casino Del Sol will undergo a 9,600-square foot expansion and will include additional break out meeting rooms to complement the existing convention space.
Casino of the Sun, Casino Del Sol's sister property and original Pascua Yaqui Tribal casino, is also getting a new addition. Construction of a new 11,000-square foot Event Center adjacent to the Casino will allow for meetings, events, and entertainment.
"The overwhelming support we have received since the opening of Casino Del Sol has resulted in our current hotel being at near-full capacity most nights," said CEO of Casino Del Sol, Kimberly Van Amburg. "This project will allow us to meet the increased demand of our customers as well as better serve our meeting and convention clientele."
The architect for the project is the Cuningham Group in Las Vegas.
The project cost has not been disclosed.
