$20 Million Expansion: 150 Room Hotel to Include
Suites, Fitness Center & Meeting Space
Boomtown Casino New Orleans Breaks Ground on Hotel Project
Boomtown Casino New Orleans broke ground today on a previously announced $20 million hotel project. The 150- room five-story hotel will include eight beautiful suites, a fitness center, conference space and 250 additional parking spaces.
The new addition will be connected to Boomtown’s existing facility that includes a casino, entertainment venue, restaurants and meeting space. Construction begins immediately and is expected to take approximately 14 months to complete. The hotel addition will create approximately 50 new permanent jobs and more than 150 construction related jobs. Louisiana based The Lemoine Company is the general contractor for the project.
"This is a memorable day for the Boomtown team and the West Bank community as we break ground on a terrific new hotel tower; a project that will allow us to attract new guests while also providing enhanced amenities to guests who visit us today," said Boomtown Vice President and General Manager Harold Rowland. He adds, "The addition of a hotel will also provide a wonderful experience for Pinnacle Entertainment guests who come to visit the New Orleans area from around the country."
"Pinnacle is once again demonstrating they are good partners in Jefferson Parish, providing tangible benefits such as jobs, infrastructure improvements, and positive community outreach," says Ricky Templet, Jefferson Parish District 1 Councilman. He adds, "In a time when many communities are struggling, we are pleased to work closely with the Boomtown management team on this exciting hotel project, bringing new jobs and continued economic development to the West Bank."
Pinnacle Entertainment owns and operates four unique casino properties in Louisiana: Boomtown New Orleans, Boomtown Casino Hotel Bossier City, L’Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles and L’Auberge Casino & Hotel Baton Rouge.
