Tioga Downs Casino, located in Nichols, N.Y., recently announced that their newly constructed hotel is open for business.

Beginning last week, select floors of the hotel were open to all guests. Reservations are now being accepted, and can be made online at, or by calling 1-888-946-8464.

A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Dec. 1, with a ribbon cutting at 1 p.m. followed by a reception with food and beverages, and tours of the new hotel and all its amenities will be offered. 

The six-story, 161-room hotel will include the full-service AgeLess spa, a fitness center, three pools, two rooftop decks, an events center with banquet and reception areas that can accommodate up to 400 people, and a P.J. Clarke’s restaurant. Additionally, there will be a new clubhouse for the nearby Tioga Country Club golf course.

“The opening of the hotel will mark a major milestone in the transformation of Tioga Downs into a full-service destination resort,” Jeff Gural, chairman of American Racing and Entertainment LLC, said. 

He added, “The hotel offers a convenient and comfortable place for guests of all ages to stay and enjoy the many wonderful amenities the property has to offer. This will make Tioga Downs an even bigger draw for weddings, parties and conferences, and bring visitors and tourism to Tioga County.”

Ground broke on these exciting attractions in September 2016, shortly after Tioga Downs was awarded a full gaming license. These new additions will create hundreds of new jobs, bringing the total number of Tioga Downs employees to about 700.
