Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino will begin a more-than $8-million renovation project next month to refurbish and renew the Chukchansi and Picayune Towers in Coarsegold.
The two towers feature 400 large guest rooms, an indoor/outdoor pool, Serenity Springs Spa and Nativo’s Italian Restaurant. Chukchansi Gold will conduct the project in phases. Upon completion, the 400 guest rooms will be non-smoking and completely renovated.
The entire project is anticipated to be complete by mid-August, impacting about 30% of the hotel’s available rooms at any given time.
“The goal of this renovation project is to not only give our hotel towers a fresh feel, but to provide our guests with a totally new experience,” said Tom Allen, director of hospitality for Chukchansi Gold. “Once complete, we will have revamped every guest room, corridor and elevator lobby — complete with new carpet, wallpaper, paint, drapes, furnishings, TV’s feature walls and refinished bathrooms.”
Through its Chukchansi Cares program, Chukschansi Gold is donating the used furniture from the renovation to Wings Advocacy Fresno, a group that provides for homeless people in the region with help refurbishing their new dwellings.
