Rivers Casino announced it will open a 62-suite boutique luxury hotel inside The Battery, the mixed-use lifestyle campus underway on Beach Street in Fishtown.
The new casino hotel will be called “Riversuites,” and will occupy four floors of The Battery’s existing adaptive reuse complex.
Guest suites average 854 square feet each, with even larger options up to 2,266 square feet. One-, two- and three-bedroom accommodations are available. Every suite includes a full kitchen. Several apartment-style suites feature patios or bi-level lofts, with sleeping rooms upstairs and living room and kitchen below.
“A hotel addition for Rivers Casino Philadelphia has always been part of the master plan for our Fishtown property,” said Tim Drehkoff, CEO of Rivers Casino and Rush Street Gaming. “The location and grandeur of The Battery allowed us to join a neighboring parcel, already in progress, with historic Philly significance.”
Riversuites will boast several other traditional and unconventional amenities: co-working areas, lobby gathering spaces, a billiards table and an indoor basketball court.
Riversuites at The Battery is expected to open by the end of the year.
The Battery will also include 173 apartments, 135,000 square feet of office space and 100,000 square feet of event space.
