The Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa has over 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2) of gambling floor. The casino completed a 16-story, 173-foot (53 m) hotel tower which opened on April 18, 2008. The tower is the second-tallest building in the Inland Empire.
The paved and landscaped parking lot on the property was, nearly 40 years before, a sandy patch of desert, across which Jonathan Winters drove a moving van, in the film It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
The Agua Caliente Band also runs the Spa Resort and Casino in nearby Palm Springs, California.
A minute from Interstate 10, this sophisticated casino resort is 6 miles from Cathedral City and 9 miles from Palm Springs.
Upscale rooms offer 42-inch flat-screen TVs, WiFi and mountain views, plus bathrooms with sunken tubs and additional flat-screen TVs. Suites add whirlpool tubs and parlors with wet bars.
The resort offers 2 outdoor pools, a hot tub and a poolside bar and grill. Live entertainment is offered at 2 on-site lounges. There’s also a beauty and wellness spa (fee), a concert theater and a 24-hour casino with slots, table games and a poker room. Other dining options include a steakhouse, 2 cafes, a buffet and a deli.
