Designed after a 19th century Mississippi side paddlewheel riverboat, the Colorado Belle is situated on the west bank of the Colorado River a little more than 2 miles south of Davis Dam on Lake Mohave.
Dubbed "the biggest boat in the desert since Noah" when it opened in July 1987, the 'boat' is 600 feet long, set in 80 tons of concrete. In addition to the ‘boat’, the property features two hotel towers
The exterior design of the ‘boat’ has made it a landmark on the Laughlin “strip”. The boat stands out against the skyline with her two gold crowned black “smokestacks”, 3-story high “paddlewheels”, and red-white-and-blue bunting-bedecked balustrades on the two decks above ground level and the Captain’s “cabin” on the top. One section of the casino’s original “moat” remains after a massive remodel. The moat is home to colorful koi fish and occasional migratory duck.
Interior casino decor is reminiscent of genteel turn-of-the century gambling facilities, with many crystal chandeliers, hand painted murals and signs and etched and stained glass features, particularly in the “friendliest Poker Room on the river”.
Comfortable hotel rooms aboard the ‘boat’ and each of two towers feature either one king sized bed or two queen sized beds and pillows guests rave about! Each room also has a 32” TV and Keurig coffee makers. Both towers surround an outdoor swimming pool area. A fitness room is available to guests maintaining their workout regimens. Registered guests driving electric cars will find two of the three complimentary charging stations in Laughlin at the Colorado Belle. 80% of the hotel's 1,053 rooms are non-smoking.
Three different dining options are available to guests, including Pints Sports Bar & Brew Pub, Laughlin's only microbrewery (award-winning beer, great appetizers), and the Loading Dock Bar & Grille, which has a buffet and spectacular views of the outdoors through floor-to-ceiling windows.
In the 65,000 sq. ft. casino, players enjoy a variety of exciting games including live Poker and Keno plus the latest electronic games in the industry. The ACCESS players club opens doors for gamblers, providing complimentary lodging, dining, concert tickets and more, based on play. Club membership is free. The ACCESS card is valid at both Colorado Belle and Edgewater.
The Colorado Belle is connected to sister property Edgewater Casino Resort by a short riverwalk two stories above the river. The Riverwalk offers a relaxing break from the excitement indoors, and breathtaking views of the Colorado River, desert landscape, wildlife and mountains. Spring and fall festivals are held on the Riverwalk with live entertainment and food and beverage vendors.
