Designed by hospitality design firm HBG Design, the new $180-million hotel expansion at Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks, California, opened to guests in late 2020. Owned and operated by Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation and located just 50 miles northwest of Sacramento, the resort is one of Northern California’s largest upscale resort destinations.
HBG Design’s “Plentiful Valley/Fertile Ground” interior design concept springs to life inside, inspired by characteristics of the Capay Valley that are experienced during the four distinct seasons.
“Interiors draw heavily from the region’s agrarian landscape using organic and textural materials and patterns to connect the new resort hotel to the heart of the valley and its abundant agriculture,” says Emily Marshall, interior design director at HBG Design. “The guest experience relates beautifully to the region’s unique sense of place.”
The vibrant lobby bar/lounge incorporates maroon hues accented by honey golden tones and frenzied hive patterns recalling the honeybee and its agricultural significance to the valley. The Enso Sushi bar blends almond blossom inspired color and texture with natural wood grain and organic cork and bamboo. The C2 Steak & Seafood restaurant’s rich custom millwork and dramatic glass globe pendant light wall emulate the bounty of the valley’s wine country and cattle farms.
