Harrah's Resort Southern California is the ideal staycation location for any relaxing weekend. Recently renovated to the tune of $160 million, the beautiful revamped hotel is without a doubt Southern California's premiere resort, perfect for friends, couples, families and even corporate groups.
With the addition of a new 21-story hotel tower, the resort boasts 1,065 rooms and luxury suites. Guests will love amenities like 42-inch plasma televisions, glass-enclosed showers and the supreme comfort of a Simmons mattress.
But the luxury isn't limited to your accommodations. Indulge in award-winning surf and turf at Fiore, a seven-time winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. And don't forget to pair your meal with one of their 120 wines.
Speaking of wine, Corked is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink, where fine wine and local craft beer mingle on the menu. Spiked -- yet another elegant bar at this fully loaded resort -- has all your craft cocktail needs covered thanks to their staff of inventive mixologists.
For families looking for something casual, there's even a brand new food court, replete with an Earl of Sandwiches and Pink's Hot Dogs that the kids are sure to love.
Everyone will love the newly renovated pool thanks to a 400-foot lazy river and So Cal's only swim up bar. Add 21 cabanas, nine hot tubs and DJ'd parties at Dive Day Club, and you'll be donning your bathing suit before you can yell cannonball. Round out the day with a trip to the Spa and thank us later.
And no one knows how to work hard and play hard like Harrah's. The Resort's brand new 53,221 square foot, state-of-the-art Events Center has a 2,200 seat concert hall and a 1,200 seat banquet hall that are ideal for your company's next retreat.
Of course how could anyone forget the legendary gaming? With 1,700 slots and 59 exciting gaming tables, Harrah's So Cal puts Vegas-style action right in the heart of Southern Califronia.
