$175 million expansion opens at Graton Resort & Casino

A new 342,000-square-foot expansion opened at Graton Resort & Casino in Rohnert Park opened Tuesday, after a year of construction and $175 million in costs. Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, the owners of the resort, employed over 1,000 local construction workers for the project.

The new expansion includes a full-service six-story hotel with 200 guestrooms, a lobby containing two bars and lounges, a 10,000-square-foot spa, a fitness center, a new Asian restaurant, and a large event and convention space that can accommodate up to 1,600 guests. The centerpiece of the newly-constructed resort is an enormous 30,000-square-foot outdoor oasis, complete with an outdoor pool, bar and lounge chairs.

The luxury resort’s features are accompanied by the existing casino, which contains 130 table games and 3,000 slot and video poker games.
