Come Play in the Pines Hon-Dah Resort Casino and Conference Center PR OF ILE

The jewel of the White Mountains’ recreation area is the Hon-Dah Resort Casino and Conference Center. The complex is owned and operated by the White Mountain Apache Tribe. Both a casino and a year-round destination resort catering to outdoor enthusiasts and folks just looking to “get away from it all,” HonDah offers outstanding amenities. Guests at the lodge-style hotel will first notice the spectacular lobby with its massive fireplace and conversation pit... where you are welcome to relax at any time. Also in the lobby, the intimate “Spirit Bar” is a place to enjoy a cigar and a drink in a quiet atmosphere. Accommodations include 128 well appointed king and queen bedrooms. All rooms are oversized with two vanity areas, refrigerator, wet bar and satellite television. After a day of enjoying the great outdoors, shopping at the many White Mountain antique and gift shops, or visiting some of the area’s museums and other attractions, you won’t need to take another step to dine or unwind. The resort has an all-season swimming pool, spa and sauna plus a video game room for all ages. Fine food is served at the Indian Pine Restaurant. For your evening entertainment the Timbers Lounge brings Las Vegas style acts six nights a week. The Casino at Hon-Dah provides exciting gaming with 600 slots, including

video blackjack, video poker, and video keno plus unlimited progressive jackpots. Fans of live poker and live blackjack will find these games also available here. This comprehensive resort offers a number of other facilities. The Conference Center features the area’s largest meeting room with seating for over 700 for meetings and 350 for dinner functions. Rvers will be delighted to know that there is a well appointed RV Park with a new and modern laundry. The Ski & Outdoor Store stocks almost everything the sportsman will need. The gas station at Hon-Dah offers some of the lowest priced gas in the area and there is a convenience store... for your convenience! If you haven’t yet made plans for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, why not head to Hon-Dah Resort Casino? On Feb 14 there will be a Valentine Concert at the Conference Center featuring The Coasters. Each ticket holder will receive a bottle of free champagne and there will be a raffle for fabulous prizes. Cost is $10 for the public. Hon-Dah means “welcome” in Apache and visitors are made to feel right at home.
