Announcement comes one year after the Seneca Nation ceases payment to NYS


The Seneca Niagara Casino announced its most significant improvement project since opening its doors fifteen years ago during a press conference on Friday April 27th, 2018.

The project, called the “Seneca Arrival Experience,” was described by Leaders of the Seneca Nation of Indians and Seneca Gaming Corp. as their most dramatic beautification efforts yet.

The $40 million spent on this project will raise the Seneca’s total investment in Niagara Falls to more than $600 million since the renovation of a former convention center into a casino in 2002.

“This project will personify the true feel of a Seneca resort property for every guest,” said Seneca Gaming Corp. Chairman Barry E. Snyder Sr.

“There will be a tangible sense of excitement and anticipation from the minute someone turns onto the new entry boulevard. That feeling will cascade throughout the entire property, from the new lobby through the hotel tower and spa, throughout the restaurants and across the gaming floor. Our guests’ senses will be heightened, and their expectations exceeded. That has been our goal since day one.”

Notably, the exterior improvements include an extravagantly landscaped entryway stretching from John B. Daly Blvd. to the entrance of the casino.

“We have long viewed our Niagara territory, and this vantage point of Seneca Niagara in particular, as standing at the front door to Niagara Falls,” said Seneca Nation President Todd Gates.

“As more and more people visit our resort and discover – and rediscover – the wonders of Niagara, we want to make an immediate impression on them. Over the past 15 years, the Seneca Nation has chartered the course and made significant investments to bring people and jobs to Niagara Falls. By making this latest investment, we are again letting the world know that there is something exciting and special for them to enjoy here.”

Work is expected to begin in the following weeks with the exterior improvements expected to be finished later this year and an entire project completion date of fall 2019.
