Tribe nearly double size of hotel
Treasure Island Resort & Casino cut the ribbon Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, on its $86 million hotel expansion, making it the second largest hotel in Minnesota.
The expansion adds 306 rooms for a total of 788. The new hotel space is actually two towers adding 185,000 square feet to Treasure Island's resort property.
"The leaders of our tribal community are charged with thinking ahead seven generations and adding this space for Treasure Island guests to enjoy for years to come greatly assists us toward that end," Tribal Council President Shelley Buck said, adding that the addition demonstrates the tribe's commitment to growth and expansion in the region.
