Excitement Worth Sharing

   From the thrill of 2,000 of the latest slot machines and 33 action-packed table games, to the delicious tastes of seven restaurants, to the luxury of an award-winning hotel, and the energy of world-class entertainment - a trip to Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel is truly “Excitement Worth Sharing!”
   The resort is nestled in the picturesque foothills of the Allegheny Mountains in Salamanca, NY near the Pennsylvania border. You’ll find it right at Exit 20 off the I-86, less than 20 minutes south of Ellicottville. During your visit, experience all that the region has to offer - including scenic state parks, amazing hiking trails, and cultural offerings in Salamanca such as the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum.
   At Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel, you’ll get the most entertainment value for your gaming dollar. Be sure to sign up for your free Seneca Player’s Club Card, and watch your comp points add up - at both slots and table games! Plus, all September long, receive $20 in Free Slot Play when you join the club. One comp point earned equals one dollar, which you can use for dining, entertainment, hotel stays, spa services, shopping, and much more. At other nearby casinos, it takes longer to earn comp points - such as more than three times the coin-in for the Finger Lakes Region and Erie, PA, and five times as much in Hamburg, NY. You simply get better value at Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel, and your comp points are valid for use at any Seneca Casino property.
   The AAA Four Diamond Award–winning hotel at Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel offers 11 levels to provide you an unforgettable stay. Just last year in late 2012, an expanded hotel tower opened - increasing the number of deluxe rooms from 212 to 413. Among the new rooms are nine 735-square-foot corner suites and nine 710-square-foot end suites. The corner suites feature an upscale oversized bathroom with dual sinks, a very large shower with a tower of pulsating jets, and a chaise lounge. This is adjacent to a relaxing bubble tub that faces a unique floating divider wall and flat-screen TV. The end suites have similarly luxurious oversized bathrooms with the same shower system, and also feature a lounge/cocktail area with its own large screen TV and sound system, completely separate from the bedroom. The new tower also offers the ability for guests to purchase super-suites, which consist of an end suite, corner suite, and deluxe King room sectioned-off at the far end of the floor.
   All 413 rooms offer spectacular views of the Allegheny Mountains - especially newly-created rooms facing south, which will have completely unobstructed mountain vistas. All existing rooms also received $1.2 million in renovations and look just like rooms in the expanded tower.
   Every hotel room features upscale amenities such as a pillow-top bed, oversized shower, and flat-screen TV. And, free wireless Internet access is now available through the entire resort. Finally, when you stay at the hotel, be sure to also take a dip in our refreshing indoor pool and steamy whirlpool, and get your heart pumping inside our recently expanded workout facility.
   In addition to world-class gaming and a luxurious hotel, Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel offers top-notch entertainment. The 2,400-seat Seneca Allegany Events Center plays host to the world’s finest entertainers. Recent acts in the past year have included Martina McBride, The B-52s, Trace Adkins, Ron White, B.B. King, Jeff Dunham, and more. No seat is further than 100 feet of the stage, and two oversized high-definition video screens in the venue make every seat feel like the “best seat in the house.” You can also catch live regional entertainment during weekend evenings for free at the Casino Bar, located in the heart of the casino floor.
   Upcoming entertainment this fall at the Seneca Allegany Events Center includes some of country music’s finest bands as well as a dash of classic rock. First up on Sunday, Sept. 8 is one of country’s hottest young stars, Josh Turner. His hit single, “Time Is Love,” earned the distinction as the No. 1 Billboard Country Song for all of 2012. At age 35, Turner is one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry and possesses a distinct low-range vocal. (See The Summer Local’s interview with Josh Turner, at right.) 
   On Saturday, Sept. 21, the raucous country duo Big & Rich make a stop in Salamanca as part of their “Party Like Cowboyz” tour. They burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the smash single, “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” and followed with the hits “Comin’ to Your City” and “Lost in This Moment” in later years.
   Don Felder presents “An Evening at the Hotel California” on Saturday, Oct. 12. The former lead guitarist for the Eagles has a lyrical-like sound on songs like “Hotel California,” “Life in the Fast Lane,” “One of These Nights,” and many other legendary hits.
   Finally, just announced for Saturday, Nov. 23, is the Charlie Daniels Band. The group, led by Daniels’ signature fiddle and vocals, provides an instantly-recognizable blend of country and Southern rock with tunes such as “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and “Uneasy Rider.” Tickets for all shows are available at Seneca Casino box offices, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by phone at 800-745-3000.
   No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ve hit the culinary jackpot at Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel. Sink your teeth into the most tender cuts of beef at Western New York’s premier steakhouse, The Western Door. All steaks are aged 28 days for ultimate flavor and juiciness, and exceed USDA standards for Prime and Choice cuts. Delight in the aromas of authentic Italian cooking at Patria. Choose from more than 120 wines from around the world as you dine on food prepared from scratch. Indulge in all-you-can-eat foods at Thunder Mountain Buffet, including prime rib, shrimp, rotisserie chicken, and much more. The buffet is consistently voted the No. 1 buffet in the Northeast by readers of Casino Player magazine. Choose from breakfast, lunch, or dinner anytime at the 24-hour Seneca Café. Enjoy your favorite drink and appetizer at Fire Lounge. When you need food on-the-go, stop by Bear Claw Café or Seneca Café Express.
   While you’re here, make a retreat to The Spa & Salon - a place where you can quiet your thoughts, calm your spirit and soothe your senses. Relax with a Swedish body massage, full body wrap, or customized facial. Treat yourself to a manicure, pedicure, waxing treatment, or new hairstyle. Also, when you book a signature massage treatment, you’ll have access to The Spa & Salon’s facilities - including the sauna, whirlpool, steam room, and showers with heat lamps - that day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
   When you’re finished relaxing or getting a new ‘do, stop by the 24-hour Logo Shop with an assortment of items from souvenirs to travel accessories - or visit TEN, the store where every item inside costs 10 dollars.
   Finally, keep Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel in mind for your next event. With more than 23,500 square feet of meeting and conference space, the resort is the ideal venue for banquets, trade shows, conventions, weddings, and more. No matter what the event, guests can expect “white glove” four-star treatment from the Banquets and Catering Team and the dozens of Food and Beverage chefs and servers who happily pitch in to make every occasion a complete success.
