San Juan Marriott unveils new-look casino

The San Juan Marriott Resort &
Stellaris Casino has announced the completion and grand opening of their
newly expanded and renovated casino, the first phase of a $35 million
renovation project at the hotel.  After adding 2,200 additional square feet, the Stellaris Casino is now
12,700 square feet and features 470 slot machines, 26 table games, a new
casino bar, an expansion of the popular Wan Chai Noodle Bar and a Casino
Pantry.  The new section of the casino is a non-smoking gaming space
with wider aisles and first class seating.  A new High Limit Slot Parlor
offers the greatest number and widest selection of state-of-the-art $5
and $25 slot machines in Puerto Rico.  Also exclusive to the San Juan
Marriott is the greatest number and widest variety of penny slot
machines on the island.  All slot machines with the exception of 25 of
the older, ever popular IGT S+ $1.00 reel machines have
“Ticket-In/Ticket-Out” (TITO) capability.

All of the slot machines also now have player tracking capability with
the most lucrative Player’s Club points accumulation on the island.  A
new Gold Level and Silver Level Player’s Club has been introduced and
points can be redeemed for cash, gifts, hotel accommodations, food
and/or beverage.  Several prime parking spaces in the largest under
cover, secure hotel parking garage in the metro area have been reserved
for Silver Level and Gold Level Players Club Members as well. 


To keep players energized, the new Casino Pantry menu includes oatmeal,
danishes, muffins and breakfast tostadas. Soup, sandwiches and a variety
of finger foods are available for lunch with coffee beverages and
daiquiris served all day.  The nearby Wan Chai Noodle Bar features the
vibrant flavors of the Asian region and is open for dinner.



Construction and renovations planned for the rest of the San Juan
Marriott Resort, including rooms and meeting space, are scheduled to be
complete by December 2006.
