 Tulsa, Oklahoma (CNENT) June 2011

Plans are underway to make Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa the largest resort and entertainment destination in the region. A new 100-room, all-suite hotel tower will be erected, making Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa the largest hotel in the metro area.

It will be the third hotel tower for the property, and it will also include 10,000 square feet of dining and entertainment space and 45,000 square feet of gaming space.

“Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is the only complete resort and entertainment destination in northeast Oklahoma,” said David Stewart, chief executive officer of Cherokee Nation Entertainment. “By adding more hotel rooms and amenities, we are able to provide a greater entertainment experience for our guests, while continuing to deliver what people expect from the Hard Rock brand."

The new tower will incorporate an eco-friendly design in a non-smoking gaming and hospitality environment. Additional entertainment options will include a new sports/media bar and ultra lounge and an innovative gaming zone with new interactive and multiplayer games.

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tulsa already offers multiple dining options and night spots, a theater-style event center, convention space, an art gallery, a jewelry store, a clothing store and a championship golf course.

“We work very hard to provide our guests with a complete overall experience they can’t find anywhere else,” said Stewart. “Today, that includes catering to all generations that love games so they can enjoy them in a comfortable, smoke-free, fun environment. This new facility will be the first non-smoking casino and hotel in Oklahoma, a one-of-a-kind.”

Another addition to the property will be a pedestrian bridge extending from the north parking lot, increasing safety and protecting guests from the elements. Guests will enter the property on the second floor of the new tower, also a one-of-a-kind feature in the Tulsa market.

Our growth over the past two decades has been incredible, and we’re extremely excited about this new all-suites tower,” Stewart said. “These new amenities offer something for all of our guests and continue to set Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa apart from other entertainment options in the region.”
