Adjacent to the hotel is Saunooke Village, offering unique Indian shops, dining and family fun all within walking distance. Join our regulars and discover the rich culture and history of the Cherokee Tribe, the beauty of nature and the Great Smoky Mountains. Try your luck at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino or Tribal Bingo.
