Harrah’s Resort Southern California said it added 200 jobs with the completion of its construction project, and is up to 1,600 employees at its hotel and casino.

The business expects to add 80 more jobs, a resort spokeswoman said.

Harrah’s, on the Rincon Indian Reservation near Valley Center, recently completed its second high-rise hotel tower. With a total of 1,065 rooms, the hotel now bills itself as the fourth largest hotel property in San Diego County. The figure includes the property’s 147 suites.

The business made several renovations and added new venues in the $160 million project.

The property’s new features include an event center, a “trifecta of pools” with a 400-foot “Lazy River” feature, and a swim-up bar.
