Guests at Harrah’s Cherokee Hotel can now enjoy themselves and relax like they were at the beach all while remaining in the beautiful mountains. The Pools is the latest amenity at Harrah’s Cherokee Hotel, and opened on Friday, May 30.
“The Pools is for registered guests of the Hotel and features 13 luxury cabanas and two pools,” said Erika Dahl, pool manager. “Guests will be able to relax at The Pools year-round.”
She related that there are two pools including an indoor, heated pool that offers lanes for lap swimmers and an outdoor, heated pool that offers a wading area as well as deeper waters. The 13 cabanas range in size and can be reserved by guests in four-hour increments. Each cabana includes a fan, heater, WI-FI access, and a television in addition to chairs and couches. In all, there are six 8x8s, six 8x10s, and one 10×15.
Leeann Bridges, Harrah’s Cherokee vice president of marketing, said, “We’re very pleased to be wrapping up five years of construction with these gorgeous new amenities. The Pools offers a premium environment for our hotel guests to come out and relax with a drink and enjoy the beautiful mountain sunshine.”
Patrons will be able to enjoy various drinks and food pool-side including wine, local beers, cocktails, wraps, sliders, and desserts.
The Pools is located adjacent to the Fitness Center and Mandara Spa on the southwest corner of the Resort.
