The casino could be accepting reservations as early as this fall.

River Casino Philadelphia has announced that it will be opening a 62-suite luxury waterfront hotel, called Riversuites, inside The Battery on Beach Street in Fishtown.

The guest suites will average 854 square feet each, with options that range up to 2,266 square feet. Every suite includes a full kitchen. One, two and three-bedroom suites are available. The casino could be accepting reservations as early as this fall.

Riversuites will also have panoramic views of the Delaware river as well as an affiliation with the casino itself. The hotel will include several other amenities such as: co-working areas, lobby gathering spaces, a billiards table and an indoor basketball court.

The Riversuites hotel project represents a $7m privately-funded investment. The new hotel is expected to add more than 40 permanent hospitality jobs to the casino’s existing 1,100-plus workforce. Riversuites at The Battery is expected to open by year-end 2023.

Riversuites will be operated by Rivers Casino Philadelphia, which is owned and operated by Rush Street Gaming and its affiliates. 

Tim Drehkoff, CEO of Rivers Casino and Rush Street Gaming, said, “A hotel addition for Rivers Casino Philadelphia has always been part of the master plan for our Fishtown property. The location and grandeur of The Battery allowed us to join a neighboring parcel, already in progress, with historic Philly significance.”

Eric Althaus, GM of Rivers Casino commented, “VIPs and out-of-town guests have long inquired about overnight stays at Rivers Casino Philadelphia, and they’re about to get a penthouse-style option. We’re thrilled to introduce this entirely unexpected luxury suites collection — that’s exclusive to Rivers Philly.”

He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
