ARM team to support the design, development & operation of new hotel and convention center.
Watonga, OK – The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are building an extraordinary hotel and convention center located in the beautiful city of Watonga, Oklahoma. The tribes have been great allies since the 1830s and have partnered on numerous endeavors together since. Their new Lucky Star Hotel & Convention Center will have approximately 80 rooms total, as well as an upscale restaurant and bar area.
American Resort Management and their team of national and regional industry experts have extensive experience in hotel and convention center project development and management. The ARM team will act as owner’s representative and assist in the consulting and pre-opening phase of the Watonga Project, as well as manage the hotel and convention center. The team will also help develop the vision for the project as well as the programming, themes and overall messaging.
“We are excited to support the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in the development of this unique independent hotel and topnotch convention center,” said Richard Coleman, American Resort Management CEO. “This will be a destination that’s sure to provide outstanding and unforgettable guest experiences.”
The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes anticipate an opening sometime in late Spring 2021. For more information on The Watonga Project, please visit https://www.luckystarcasino.org/Watonga-Hotel- and-Casino.
