Monarch Casino Resort Spa celebrates National Monarch Day Saturday, May 4th

The metamorphosis of Monarch Casino Resort Spa continues as construction kicks into high gear for the summer season

Winter weather is beginning to loosen its grip on Colorado and Monarch Casino Resort Spa is celebrating- naturally-- with National Monarch Day this Saturday, May 4th.

The gorgeous Monarch butterfly is represented throughout the casino and will show up throughout the design of the new resort.

Just as the Monarch butterfly changes its form, Monarch Casino Resort Spa will soon spread its wings as a premier resort destination featuring new restaurants, additional gaming space, more than 500 luxurious guest rooms, a world-class spa and a roof-top swimming pool with views from Clear Creek Canyon to the top of the Rocky Mountains. The 23-story hotel is expected to open in mid-2019. 

National Monarch Day celebrates the northward spring migration of hundreds of millions of Monarch butterflies. Monarch Casino Resort Spa is also proud to partner with the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster, the premier invertebrate education, research, and conservation institution in the world.
