Graton Casino Employment
ROHNERT PARK — The expansion at Graton Resort & Casino, currently under construction, will triple its convention and meeting space and add a 200-room hotel with opulent rooms, plus a spa and pool area.
“People were already coming to Sonoma for the coastline, the wine, food, weddings, we simply added another venue for them to stay for, and we’re happy to be a part of that, ” said Joe Hasson, the resort’s director of operations.
Groundbreaking for a much-anticipated hotel took place Sept. 2, with a 342, 000-square-foot resort addition with a six-story, 200-room hotel, making it the fourth-largest hotel in Sonoma County.
The hotel will offer accommodations to fit all audiences, from those on a budget to those with no budget. Guest rooms will range in size from 500 to 2, 600 square feet.
“Anything more than 500 square feet is an opulent room, appropriately appointed for distinguished guests, and high profile celebrities, ” said Hasson, who has run hotels where guests have included presidents of countries. “When I think about the caliper of what we’re building, this will be a terrific destination. We are the casino of choice in the Bay Area. With the proximity to San Francisco, it’s convenient for the city and for Oakland, and an entertainment destination for Sonoma and the surrounding counties. The attributes we focus on are convenience, proximity and easy access, so anyone can feel comfortable here.”
The $175 million project is expected to be completed in Fall 2016. The expansion will also add 20, 000 square feet of convention and meeting room space, tripling the size of the multi-purpose space for dinners, shows and special purpose get-togethers. Dinners will be able to seat as many as 800 and shows will comfortably seat more than 1, 000 people.
Entertainment venues will continue in the same vein, and include something that appeals to everyone in the community, Hasson said, from classic rock to comedians and shows geared toward specific audiences. A bigger space will mean more opportunity for a variety of events. Recent shows have included the musical group Guardians Del Amor and comedian Kathy Griffin.
The project was designed by Friedmutter Group, and The PENTA Building Group is the general contractor. Both are based in Las Vegas.
The addition will also feature a spa, and the “centerpiece” of the expansion will be the pool area, which is designed to extend from the hotel lobby and connect with the meeting space.
Construction of the hotel will involve nearly 100 California companies and employ about 1, 000 skilled tradespeople, integrating the new addition into the existing casino and infrastructure. When completed, the hotel will create more than 100 new full-time jobs.
