Monarch Casino Resort Spa Nominated by Newsweek Reader’s Choice for “Best Overall Casino Outside of Las Vegas”

Monarch is the only casino in Colorado to receive this nomination

Monarch Casino Resort Spa is honored to receive a nomination from Newsweek Reader's Choice as one of the top 15 best casinos outside of Las Vegas and the only one in Colorado! Newsweek’s judges have recognized Monarch as one of the top contenders thanks partly to its “expansive gaming arena filled with more than 1,000 slot machines, keno, sportsbook, a poker room and table games.”

Monarch's entry by Newsweek highlights its “sumptuous surroundings - rooms with spa-like amenities, a rooftop pool, a world-class spa, and numerous varied dining venues.” To vote for Monarch, click here.

This is the first nationally recognized nomination for Monarch’s resort as a whole. Earlier this year, Monarch took home two top finishes in niche categories for USA Today's 10 Best, including Best Hotel Spa and Best Casino Player’s Club.

Monarch Casino offers its guests 516 mountain modern hotel rooms and suites overlooking the beautiful North Clear Creek Canyon. Guests can choose to stay, play across 60-thousand square feet of gaming space, including 43 table games, and then dine at any of its elevated-dining options, including the flagship white table cloth Monarch Chophouse, modern-Latin cuisine of Bistro Mariposa, elevated worldly cuisine of the Buffet, and at-home favorites (with a hint of Asian zing) of Twenty-Four 7.

Now, through the end of the year, guests can celebrate with Monarch and book two nights to earn a third night free! Culinary delights, unbeatable views, red-hot, no-limit gaming, and ultimate relaxation at Spa Monarch await at the nationally recognized Monarch Casino Resort Spa.
