Tioga Downs says part of its new resort hotel is open for business.

While work continues at the hotel, casino and destination resort, officials say select floors of the hotel are open and reservations are being accepted online and at 1-888-946-8464.

A grand opening is planned for December 1.

The six-story, 161-room hotel will also include a spa, fitness center, three pools, two rooftop decks, a restaurant and an events center.

Owner, Jeff Gural says the opening of the hotel is a milestone in transforming Tioga Downs from a harness track and video slot business to a full-service casino and resort.

Ground was broken for the expansion in September 2016, shortly after the Town of Nichols business was granted a full gaming license by New York State.
