BUSINESS: Grand Casino Hotel & Resort
For a Vegas vacation, there is a
great deal of added costs and hassle of arranging travel. However, right in
Oklahoma City’s backyard, you can enjoy all the luxuries of a high quality
casino without any trouble. Only a 25-minute drive from Bricktown, the Grand
Casino Hotel and Resort in Shawnee provides excellent entertainment,
accommodations and dining without having to hop on a plane.
A 262-room hotel complete with
sauna, spa and retail shopping will be available for anyone wanting to escape
the world without having to travel too far. Opening this spring, the Grand
Hotel will be 14 stories with state-of-the-art meeting facilities, a fitness
center and an outdoor pool. There will also be a Brazilian steakhouse and a
24-hour Grand Café.
General Manager Steve
Degraffenreid wants the Grand Casino Hotel and Resort to be known for the best
customer service. His goal is for everyone who visits to enjoy their
experience, be entertained and feel like they received the best treatment
“We will offer a stay-at-home
vacation where we greet you at the door, bring your bags to your room and have
24-hour service available to make people feel special,” Degraffenreid states.
Grand Casino Hotel and Resort is
expanding to provide an even greater experience. The casino is also building a
new state-of-the-art event center that will hold more than 2,500 people. With
the two-story layout, there will not be a bad seat in the house.
From walking in the door to the
floor of the casino, excellent customer service is consistent throughout your
experience. The casino also offers first-class entertainment ranging from
nationally known comedians, bands such as Eli Young Band, traditional gaming
and much more.
Of course it is not a true
vacation without good food and there are many options throughout the resort. The
Grand Buffet is considered by many to be the best in town featuring an endless
supply of entrees, desserts and more. A casual but delicious choice for dinner
is Embers Steakhouse, which boasts unrivaled steaks and entrées to suit every
taste. The Grandstand Sports Grille is a prime location to watch the game while
enjoying juicy burgers, hearty appetizers and more.
The Grand Casino Hotel and
Resort is a great vacation close to home with excellent service, entertainment
