Matt Marchand, President and CEO of the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce, wrote in a nomination letter of support: “[Caesars Windsor’s] continued dedication to providing world-class entertainment, award-winning Four Diamond accommodations and unparalleled guest services invites first time guests to not only to enjoy Caesars Windsor, but to also explore all our region’s rich and diverse offerings that are either a short drive away from the property or just steps away.”
