Treasure Island Resort & Casino Cuts Ribbon on Latest Expansion

Presented by Treasure Island Resort & Casino 


If you’re looking to start off the new year with a relaxing getaway, the newly remodeled Treasure Island Resort & Casino provides even more reasons to stay and play. The $86 million hotel expansion added 306 new Wolf Tower rooms, bringing the total to 788, and making Treasure Island the second largest hotel in Minnesota.


Luxury Amenities

The world-class resort provides an experience that is unparalleled in the state. Experience beauty from all angles with breathtaking views of the bluffs, the Mississippi River, and surrounding scenery right outside your window, and admire the modern design and all new, custom-made furniture by renowned design company Lily Jack inside the luxury suites. High-definition televisions, fully enclosed and tiled walk-in showers with rain shower heads, and state-of-the-art lighting are only a few of the amenities guests can indulge in while they visit. The hotel lobby is also new and provides guests with enhanced front desk facilities to improve the overall check-in experience, as well as an easily accessible business center. After a prosperous day at the casino, guests can rest easy on the newest pillow-top mattresses and plush pillows. Early risers can start off the morning right with premium coffees and specialty drinks at the Island Perk coffee shop located in lobby, which also offers freshly baked pastries, delicatessen salads, sandwiches, and desserts.



Improving the Local Economy

Adding 185,000 square feet to Treasure Island’s resort property not only benefits the guest experience, but the local economy as well. The Prairie Island Indian Community’s new hotel investment created approximately 200 construction jobs and will add more than 150 jobs on the property bringing the workforce to 1,800 team members; expanding its number one position as the largest employer in Goodhue County. Prairie Island Indian Community President Shelley Buck says the new hotel shows the tribe’s commitment to growth and expansion in the region. “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.” Treasure Island continued its long relationship with local firm Knutson Construction, which served as the project design-builder. RSP Architects and Treasure Island also continued their partnership, ensuring the look and feel of this latest project matches the upscale and contemporary feel of the recent property updates.



Destination Staycation

Located just 40 minutes outside of the Twin Cities in Welch, Treasure Island Resort & Casino is perfect for a quick weekend away. With 2,200 slots, 44 table games, a 6-table poker room, and a 550-seat high stakes bingo hall, guests can start out the new year with fun, relaxation, and good fortune. In addition to the casino and hotel, visitors can unwind at the Wave Spa with massages, facials, manicures, and more. Indulge in fine dining at Tado Steakhouse, gourmet dishes at Currents Restaurant, all-you-can-eat buffet at Tradewinds, or grab a quick bite at one of Treasure Island’s four other eateries. There’s also live entertainment with national headliners performing in the 2,800-seat Island Event and Convention Center, as well as six bars with specialty cocktails and hours of endless fun every night. Don’t leave all the fun for the adults—bring the whole family to Treasure Island for entertainment everyone will enjoy. Escape to the island life even on the coldest winter day with The Lagoon indoor water park, complete with two water slides, a zero-depth entry pool, and a lazy river.

And the newly renovated hotel ensures that everyone gets a good night’s sleep in their luxury room to get up to do it all again the next day.
