Yavapai Nation Ambitiously Rebranding Already Stellar Resort
Arizona’s Yavapai Nation plans to strike out on its own after nearly 10 years in partnership with the Radisson hotel chain. Opened in 2005 as a 246-room Radisson Fort McDowell Resort Hotel, the tribe will re-launch and re-brand that property in September as the We-Ko-Pa Resort and Conference Center. “This isn’t a dump-the-Radisson move,” says Acting General Manager Craig Benell. “It has always been the goal to show that the Nation can manage its own operations.”
That looks like a good resort. The resort looks good.
