FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mohegan Pennsylvania Completes $10 million Refresh to Hotel
PA’s premier Gaming & Entertainment Destination also re-opens Spa Sapphire; and WiseCrackers Comedy Club has a new Location
WILKES-BARRE, PA (February 7, 2024) – Last year Mohegan Pennsylvania embarked on a $10 million refresh to its hotel with the aim of refreshing and updating all 238-rooms and suites. That goal was achieved this fall with the completion of the final stage of this major renovation known as “Project Starlight,” which also saw enhancements and new openings across the resort.
“As can be seen from the new images on MoheganPA.com and for anyone who has stayed with us recently, the look & feel of our renovated hotel rooms is exceptional,” -said Tony Carlucci, President & GM of Mohegan PA. “Along with our partner Daroff Design, we set out to create a fresher and more contemporary atmosphere with upgraded amenities and we’re thrilled with the results. Every detail was considered during this project, and we’re delighted with the new hotel experience that has already generated great feedback from guests!”
This major project on the Mohegan Pennsylvania Hotel included a complete renovation to all guests rooms. This meant that brand new bathrooms, more comfortable beds and upgraded workspaces were key areas of improvement. Enhanced WiFi and new smart TVs with bill review and check out accessibility are also now featured at the hotel. There are also 20 luxurious suites which offer more space and additional rooms. The design concept for the project also drew inspiration from the incredible topography, landscape, natural resources and personality of the Susquehanna River Valley. Daroff Design brought this to life; marrying it to enhanced functionality for guests, which not only creates a beautiful room for guests, but meets their needs and comforts as well.
