The hotel will have 300 rooms, with a food market which includes Papa John’s Pizza, Panda Express, Nathan’s Famous, Earl of Sandwich and a full Starbucks.

|Cherokee County, situated in Western North Carolina encompasses the communities of Murphy, Andrews and Brasstown, where forested mountains (rather than skyscrapers) seem to touch the sky, lakes sparkle like jewels in the sun and the air is crisp and clean.
While here, you may choose to experience any number of outdoor activities just suited for the adventurer at heart, or you may choose to sit quietly by one of our many lakes or streams and just escape from the world.
Aside from the endless scenic and recreational opportunities, Cherokee County also offers more urban adventures...
Here, surrounded by nature's beauty, the charm of small town America still exists; a place where you and your family can enjoy your “peace” of the mountains. So whether you are looking to tame the wild rapids, stretch lazily by a rushing stream or search for treasure in one of our many shops, Cherokee County has it all. Make your plans today. A warm welcome awaits you!
