BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — The owners of Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi will build a new hotel next spring with an eye toward a 2015 opening.
Doug Shipley, Margaritaville's president/CEO, says in a news release Tuesday that the hotel will feature 250 rooms including 170 deluxe guest rooms and 80 two- and three-bedroom suites. He says the casino will offer some time-share units.
In addition to the hotel, Shipley said Margaritaville will expand and renovate the casino floor, adding meeting space and a resort-style pool and spa. He said the casino will open a new steakhouse.
Shipley said Margaritaville Biloxi will make improvements at its marina to provide more secured overnight docking accommodations, as well as developing a bay-front resort pool and pool bar with outdoor gambling.
