CATOOSA, Okla. - Cherokee Nation officials broke ground Tuesday on another expansion at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Construction will soon be under way on a third hotel tower, which will add 100 suites and more than 55,000 square feet of entertainment and gaming space.
The expansion will make the Hard Rock the largest resort and entertainment destination in the region.
Newly-elected Principal Chief Bill John Baker was on hand for the event.
