Background and Context
Having captured the entertainment, gaming and retail market, in Southern California since 1977, The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians decided to go a step further and expand their services to include on site, upscale lodging, made available to the public in 2015. Having worked with the team on gaming, food and beverage, and retail projects in the past, the Viejas Tribal Council selected JCJ Architecture to provide design services for the first, ground-up hotel and connecting gaming space along Interstate 8 in Southern California. This expansion features: 128 rooms, including 99 deluxe rooms and 29 luxurious suites; a pool and hot tub; expansive patio areas with cabanas; a business center and fitness room. In years following, Tribal Council continued to work with JCJ on a subsequent hotel tower, connecting casino, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms and overflow spaces.
