Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas is the #1 attraction in the state and has been one of the top Thoroughbred racing tracks in the country since 1904. After a major renovation and the addition of a full Vegas-style casino and resort, including a luxurious hotel, spa, and event center, guests are raving about ‘The New Oaklawn.’
“We have taken luxury to a whole new level in Arkansas,” Oaklawn President Louis Cella said. “It will enhance the entertainment experience at Oaklawn, in Hot Springs, and throughout Arkansas, which will further elevate our status as a leading tourism and recreation destination.”
The Hotel at Oaklawn features eight stories with 198 rooms and suites. Each room offers luxurious amenities with great views of the surrounding Hot Springs area or trackside rooms that offer guests the option to watch the top-quality Thoroughbred racing from the comfort of their rooms.
While casinos are primarily known for great gaming, there is no doubt that the amenities and offerings that surround the gaming are just as much of an attraction as the games themselves. Realizing this, casino properties have upped their game with features like spas, fine dining and other luxuries that will keep customers happy and coming back. Rhythm City Casino Resort in Davenport, Iowa is a preferred property of Midwest Gaming and offers the highest level of quality and luxury that any gaming enthusiast would love.
Whether it’s the sleek, classy hotel rooms or the delicious food at Ruthie’s Steak and Seafood, Rhythm City Casino Resort has something for everyone.
