The Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation Tuesday announced a boutique, luxury hotel is currently under construction at Jamul Casino about 20 miles east of San Diego, California.
The Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation is a subsidiary of the Jamul Indian Village Tribe. The JIVDC closed on a $515 million loan to refinance existing debt and fund hotel construction.
Jamul Casino created 1,200 permanent jobs when it opened in 2016, and since then has added a rooftop venue, a new poker room, a food court, and renovations to its high limit rooms.
“In only a few short years since opening, I’m proud that we can capitalize on our success in operating the Jamul Casino with the development of a luxury hotel,” said Jamul Indian Village and JIVDC Board Chairwoman Erica M. Pinto in a statement. “The hotel will allow us to effectively expand our footprint in the market while increasing funding for fire protection to serve all of San Diego County as well as provide 125 new permanent jobs and 1,000 construction jobs. The economic impact of the hotel will have far-reaching and long-term positive effects on our Tribal nation, state, and local economy.”
The new 16-story hotel will feature 200 rooms, including 52 suites, and a six-story parking structure, with guests being able to access the hotel through a climate-controlled, enclosed pedestrian sky bridge. The hotel lobby will be home to an approximately 4,800-square-foot restaurant with views of the surrounding area. Other planned features include retail space, meeting and banquet facilities, a full-service spa and salon with an outdoor deck, a fitness center, luxury guest rooms and suites for VIP guests, and an 11,000-square-foot rooftop pool deck including a jetted hot tub, cabanas, and a rooftop bar.
“The hotel will allow Jamul Casino to build on its success in Southern California’s highly competitive gaming market,” said Jamul Casino President and General Manager Mary Cheeks. “Our guests have overwhelmingly cited a hotel as their most-desired new development. The hotel, rooftop pool deck and lounge, and other new amenities will offer our guests a new set of experiences as a luxurious retreat in the beautiful Jamul landscape.”
