Casino Del Sol Resort Hotel

Casino Del Sol Resort Hotel Expansion

I had the chance to check out Casino Del Sol Resort Hotel in Tucson and its brand new, multimillion-dollar hotel expansion.

From the second I walked in, I was taken back by the effort that went into making this hotel stand above the rest. The ceilings were high, the rooms were spacious, and the pool was so gorgeous I don’t think it would be possible to take a bad photograph of it.

As I made my way onto the casino floor, I looked up and was happily surprised to see a beautiful dome that was created to look like the sky. With colorful lighting and wonderful architecture on all sides, this was definitely another perfect photo op.

I also had the chance to eat at the PY Steakhouse. Placed in a small room that seats about 100 patrons, the decor and food lead to a very satisfying meal.

The Casino Del Sol surrounded me with all sorts of photo opportunities; I had a great time and would gladly return again.
