Owners to Link Hotel With Mall

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Santa Fe Gaming Corp., developer of Santa Fe at the Galleria Hotel Casino and Ice Arena, and Ranch Associates, owner of the adjacent Galleria at Sunset Mall, signed a deal to connect the two properties.

Under the agreement, the hotel-casino and ice arena will be attached to the mall as an anchor tenant.

From the interior of the mall, patrons will have complete access to Santa Fe's Olympic-size ice arena, 300-room hotel casino and dining facilities.

Galleria at Sunset Mall features specialty shops, restaurants and department stores.

The properties are located south of downtown Las Vegas in Henderson.
