Competition remained fierce among the candidates, though when the ballots were tallied in Newsweek’s “Best Casino Outside of Las Vegas” readers’ poll, Pechanga Resort Casino came out the decisive winner. In late November, the national magazine and website asked its readers to vote for their favorite non-Vegas resort/casino. Among the entrants were top resorts in California, the Southwest, the South, Colorado, Reno and more. Ten resorts made the cut for the top 10 including two others in Southern California, with Pechanga Resort Casino taking the number one spot.
“Awards such as Newsweek’s prove a testament to the quality and service our team at Pechanga Resort Casino strives to deliver to our guests every day,” said Ken Perez, President of the Pechanga Development Corporation. “We’re grateful to everyone who voted and showed their support for us.”
One of the largest resort/casinos in the country, Pechanga Resort Casino features 1,100 hotel rooms and suites, 12 restaurants, two concert venues, a two-story luxury spa, an on-site 18-hole golf course, a 200,000 square foot casino and more.
Readers of the Orange County Register also voted Pechanga Resort Casino as their favorite casino during a readers’ poll held during the late summer 2023.
