The Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel in Bernalillo opened Wednesday.
The high-end hotel, located on Jemez Canyon Dam Road, has 204 guests rooms and a variety of amenities, including a steakhouse, indoor pool and fitness center.
It also features mountain views and event space for visitors.
“We’re really bringing a premier attraction not only for locals but for people visiting the region,” says John Cirrincione, General Manager. “Part of the design is that it reflects New Mexican culture combined with Pueblo Santa Ana culture.”
The hotel also has a unique rain wall in the lobby and rooms are designed after the Four Seasons of the Year.
Managers say the hotel has created about 230 new jobs.
