One of the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art gambling properties in the Midwest, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino significantly raised the stakes with its $150 million, 381-room hotel, which opened in September 2014. Construction began in late 2017 on an $80 million second tower with 119 rooms and suites, bringing the hotel's total number to 500. The 180,000-square-foot addition will also feature a 13,000-square-foot ballroom, breakout rooms, and a full-service spa. It is expected to open in the spring of 2019.
Along with the excitement of 100 tables, 3,000 slot machines, a 1,440-seat Bingo Hall, a Poker Room, and an Off-Track Betting Room, the 19-story, architecturally beautiful hotel offers spacious guest rooms and suites with sophisticated, modern décor.
The smoke-free and environmentally friendly hotel offers seven meeting rooms and an expansive prefunction area, adding 13,000 square feet of meeting space to the 48,000 square feet of the casino's existing Event Center, Tribal Room, and Woodland Dreams ballroom. With the new hotel tower adding another ballroom, meeting space will total 74,000 square feet, making it an ideal venue for galas, trade shows, corporate seminars, and receptions.
Among the numerous dining options in the casino, Dream Dance Steak is an award-winning restaurant that was included on a local ranking of the top 30 restaurants. It offers a selection of more than 600 retail-priced wines to pair perfectly with its inventive cuisine, including the highest-quality steaks and seafood options at moderate prices.
Perfect for opening receptions, award ceremonies, and shows, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino's intimate 500-seat Northern Lights Theater is also one of Milwaukee's favorite performing venues, welcoming diverse entertainment acts such as Phil Vassar, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Ringo Starr, Bonnie Raitt, Jay Leno, and B.B. King.
