"Really what we're trying to offer is a full entertainment experience, music, restaurant, gaming, activity so if you want to go to one stop shop and have a great time this is the place to be," said Cherokee Chief Chad Smith.

The hotel is the Heartland's only Hard Rock Casino, and it's one of only seven in the world.  The Cherokee Nation says getting to this point was worth the effort.
