SENECA NIAGARA RESORT & CASINO UNVEILS FIRST PHASE OF $40 MILLION “SENECA ARRIVAL EXPERIENCE” BEAUTIFICATION RENOVATION PROJECT! Hotel Front Desk & VIP Check-In Ribbon Cutting & Performance By Legendary Group “The Drifters” NIAGARA FALLS, NEW YORK: (December 6, 2018) In April 2018, Seneca Gaming Corporation announced their plans for a $40 million multi-phase beautification and renovation project slated for their flagship property in Niagara Falls, New York, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. On Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 11 AM they will celebrate phase one completion of this extraordinary project with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Hotel Front Desk area as well as a performance by legendary R&B/soul vocal group “The Drifters”. Seneca Nation and Seneca Gaming Corporation leadership will be on hand to acknowledge this spectacular reveal which includes a concave 60 foot by 5 foot 8K LED screen. This multi-phase construction continues with the next phase slated for completion by Spring 2019 with all new Lobby Bar and Hotel Front Entrance. While construction has been progressing inside the resort there has also been simultaneous work being done on the exterior of the property that will dramatically change the appearance and entryway on the east side of Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. As revealed in April, exterior work on the multi-phase project will feature a flowing, landscaped entry boulevard entering the property from John Daly Boulevard, complete with extensive landscaping, sculpture features, a new covered entryway, and an eye-catching glass façade. These dramatic renovations will further enhance the Four Diamond experience guests currently enjoy at the region’s premier resort property as well as make an immediate impression on the millions of travelers who enter Niagara Falls via the Robert Moses Parkway each year. -1-


“With this latest investment, we are continuing to raise the bar by doing what we have always done: investing in our guests and the experience they enjoy at Seneca Niagara,” said Seneca Nation President Rickey L. Armstrong, Sr. “As this new front desk area suggests, and as the entire resort suggests, this is the front door to an experience like no other, just as we set out to create when we first opened our doors 16 years ago.” The entire project is scheduled to be complete by Fall 2019. Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino has continued to engage guests throughout construction with dramatic wall wraps and imagery depicting the new look that will be available in the coming months. “In April, we said we couldn’t wait to get started. And now, to see the first phases of this incredible vision come to fruition is even more exciting,” said Holly Gagnon, Seneca Gaming Corporation President & CEO. “Each day of this multi-phase project brings continued anticipation of what is yet to come for both our employees and guests alike. The energy is palpable as each phase is revealed of this major development not only to our property, but to the City of Niagara Falls.” The $40 million price tag associated with the Seneca Arrival Experience will bring the Seneca Nation’s total investment in its Niagara Territory to more than $600 million since crews transformed a former convention center space into Seneca Niagara Casino in the span of 100 days in 2002. Today, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino attracts millions of visitors to Niagara Falls each year, features the largest hotel in Western New York, and is one of the largest employers in Niagara Falls.
