Mount Airy Casino Resort

Mt. Pocono, PA

AAA Four-Diamond Mount Airy Casino Resort lies in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, accessible by car or bus from major hubs New York City, Northern New Jersey and Philadelphia in just two hours or less. Like others in the gaming resort industry, Glenn Cademartori, vice president of marketing, remains hopeful that COVID-19 limitations and restrictions will continue to ease in the coming months. In the meantime, however, he assures meeting planners that they are “continuously adjusting our offerings and finding new ways to cater to our guests’ every need.” For example, he says, “Whether it is being overly flexible with timelines, contracts or group size, we will do whatever it takes to ensure that we exceed our guests’ expectations.”

The premier full-service destination provides a total of 25,000 sf of “multifunctional, state-of-the-art” venue space for banquets, private and corporate events, weddings and entertainment serving groups for 1,000+ people. Nearly 300 spacious guest rooms have been beautifully appointed to reflect the colors and serenity of the surrounding mountain landscape. Plush furnishings, luxurious shower amenities, flat-screen, 55-inch LCD TVs (two in the King Suite) and free high-speed internet access are among the many upscale guest room features. Additional meeting space includes an outdoor patio overlooking the Poconos at Mount Airy’s nationally recognized golf course clubhouse — “perfect for outdoor corporate events, dinners, and receptions and seated groups up to 100 people” — and a 15,000-sf tented area nearby that is “perfect for a variety of large gatherings such as trade shows and concerts.”

Cademartori describes how the team at Mount Airy is thinking outside the box when it comes to exploring the different ways for groups to be interactive while socially distanced, “whether that is through unique set ups, getting creative with our outdoor space, or utilizing our state-of-the-art video wall to make sure that all guests, including those who may be virtual, are included in all aspects of work events or that special day.” New developments at the property include Last Call, a grab-and-go beverage store, that opened in the spring offering bottles of wine and beer, Mount Airy glassware and other treats for guests. Higher-end selections feature a bottle of 2007 Chateau Latour and a 2004 bottle of Chateau Margaux, with plans to expand the inventory in the next few months. In creating new unique guest experiences, the resort has also begun offering wine dinners at the Event Center, such as the upcoming experience featuring Kim Crawford wines in the early fall. Plus, “We’re excited to see some of our concert lovers, theatergoers and comedy clubbers back at Mount Airy for headline entertainment beginning in October,” Cademartori says.

In keeping with the exceptional amenities of a full-service resort destination, Mount Airy’s entertainment options are plentiful, starting at the casino with more than 70 table games, ranging from blackjack, craps, roulette and baccarat, plus more than 1,800 slots. Premier golf conditions also prevail at Mount Airy’s 18-hole Golf Club, resulting in more than 6,500 yards of fairways modeled after golf’s most legendary U.S. championship courses. Certified by Audubon International in 2018, Mount Airy’s Golf Course is also a steward for environmental sustainability, “protecting our environment while preserving the natural heritage of the game of golf.” Begin and/or wrap up your outing with a meal at the clubhouse and browse the merchandise at the Pro Shop before calling it a day. Or why not relax with a dip in the 51,000-sf indoor/outdoor pool space complete with pool bar and daybeds, or have a luxurious spa treatment to rejuvenate before heading to the next meeting?

Besides Mount Airy’s wine dinners and golf clubhouse food fare, the resort showcases several other popular dining options: Guy Fieri’s Mt. Pocono Kitchen reflects the best of regional food fare discovered in his 15,000 miles of travel around the country, with a twist of his own surprising flavors; Bistecca by II Mulino combining hand-crafted pasta, seafood, farm-fresh vegetables, steaks and chops; and Lucky 8 Noodle + Sushi Bar, featuring fried rice and other chef specialities.
