With 108 guest rooms, the boutique property intends to infuse local culture with the brand’s glam and charm. Head to the rooftop patio or street-level restaurant for a taste of Pittsburgh.

Mount Airy Casino Resort
The first AAA Four Diamond casino resort in Pennsylvania is about to upgrade, following the opening of a 27,000 square-foot concert pavilion in May. Expansions are doubling down on the warm welcome it has long offered to the scenic backdrop of the Poconos. One hundred rooms and suites will be added to the existing 188 guest rooms. Inspired by its elevated setting, a warm color palette and modern furniture, including quartz desktops, will greet guests when they enter the renewed rooms. Meeting space is also expanding—the hotel currently offers 4,000 sq. ft., and an additional 16,000 sq. ft. of meeting, convention center and ballroom space will make the mountain oasis a must-meet destination. Completion is scheduled by spring of 2019.

Slated to open in 2020, this casino resort will have it all.

The property replaces a Holiday Inn and is a stone’s throw from Xfinity Live!, an entertainment and dining establishment, and sits comfortably within South Philadelphia’s sport stadium district—catch a show or a game within walking distance. Stay tuned for more details—Live! is a stand-out brand for a reason.

The final phases will showcase the hotel’s new, elegant standard in second- and third-floor meeting rooms.
