The renovation will begin on September 4 and is expected to last through mid-December. The hotel and spa will be closed during that time and are scheduled to reopen December 20.

“Guests who experience the newly transformed hotel will still find the same impeccable service and outstanding comfort, but with the added benefit of beautiful surroundings and the newest state-of-the-art amenities,” said John Martino, executive director of hospitality for the Chumash Casino Resort Hotel.

The redesign will include new fixtures, furnishings, carpet, drapes, and high-tech upgrades, including a 40-inch high definition TV and a plug-in panel that can be used with a host of digital devices.

Leading the ambitious renovation is the award-winning design firm of SFA Design. The firm’s work can be seen in world class destinations around the globe, including Europe, Asia and South America, serving clients such as the Four Seasons Hotels, Waldorf-Astoria Collection, and various other high-end hotels and private residences.

The central focus of the redesign is to incorporate both literal and abstract elements of the Chumash tribe’s rich history.

“By transforming the interiors, we will offer guests a more contemporary setting while holding onto truly authentic elements,” said Stacy Szuhy, an associate at SFA Design and the project’s lead designer. “Everything about the space from the rich textures and colors to the unique symbols will truly give guests a sense of place.”

Located in Santa Barbara County’s wine country off Hwy. 246, the Chumash Casino Resort Hotel offers visitors the ultimate escape. From the moment guests step into the lavish lobby they can expect to experience a level of luxury and personal service that will continue throughout their stay. The hotel is also home to the only full-service spa in the Santa Ynez Valley. A heated outdoor pool and fitness center are also available.

Guests are only steps away from the main attraction, the Chumash Casino Resort’s gaming floor which features 2,000 slot machines and exciting table games like Blackjack and Poker, three restaurants and headline entertainers. The Resort has quickly become the destination of choice in the region.

If you plan to visit the Chumash Casino Resort during the hotel closure, we recommend you book a stay at our other properties, Hotel Corque or The Hadsten House Inn. Both hotels are located in nearby Solvang. Complimentary shuttle service is available between the hotels and the casino. For reservations call 1-800-624-5572.

The Chumash Casino Resort Hotel is owned by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.
