The 342,000-sq.-ft. Graton Resort & Casino undoubtedly places Rohnert Park as a destination on the map of luxury. A city within dairy and wine country now caters to the booming business of travelers seeking both excitement and pampering.
Graton Resort & Casino offers a true escape into luxury from the moment you drive up to the porte-cochère, walk through the glass doors into the lobby and see hundreds of glass bloodhound leaves suspended from above. They’re a sign you’re at Graton; you have indeed arrived.
Rated AAA Four Diamond, Graton houses 200 premium king and double rooms, a notable full-service spa and salon, a fitness center with a pool view, a business center and a relaxing resort-style pool area with cabanas. (Graton’s pool and cabana area will be reopening on May 6.)
Each room is as grand as the size and stature of the resort, with each room looking closer to a villa than a hotel room. The rooms feature spacious lounging areas, vanity stations, modernized brightly colored décor, and even a personalized message on each TV screen.
Without a doubt, the main attraction of the hotel is the casino. Graton has an extensive list of gaming options for everyone from a first-time gambler to a high roller with the most competitive spirit. The casino has over 3,000 state-of-the-art slot machines (including progressive jackpots, classic favorites and pop culture-themed slots); a gaming floor featuring 120 live table games (including Blackjack, Baccarat, Pai Gow, Three-Card Poker and more); a live poker room; and High Limit gaming areas, complete with a variety of slots and table games with better odds and limits.
Along the perimeter of the casino, you’ll find restaurants for all tastes and times of day. The Marketplace, with over a half dozen quick eats, like The Habit Burger, is open seven days a week until either midnight or 1 a.m.
For a drink, there are five luxurious bars including the 360-degree Sky bar in the heart of the casino; the G-Bar sports bar with more than 40 flat-screen TVs, as to not miss any of the big-game action; and 8 (Bar), meant for VIPs in the High Limit gaming area.
630 Park Steakhouse is a must-try when staying at the hotel or stopping by the casino. As chic as a restaurant off of the Las Vegas Strip, this steakhouse is a modernized fine-dining experience and could be a destination within itself. The menu is filled with prime steaks, fresh seafood and a creme brulee that is to die for, and the wine list is filled with the most fine local bottles from Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
Guests can also visit three other sit-down restaurants on campus. Daily Grill, the upscale-casual restaurant for classic American dishes; Boathouse Asian Eatery, for a mix of Japanese and East Asian cuisine; or Italian Tony’s of North Beach, which is home to 12-time World Pizza Champion Chef Tony Gemignani, to indulge in a savory Italian dish.
Entertainment at Graton is back after pandemic closures, and the hotel and casino’s entertainment lineup is bursting with action, hosting headliners like Trace Atkins, and comedians Gabriel Iglesias and George Lopez, to name a few summer acts
