The owners of Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi announced plans to break ground on a new hotel next spring. Those plans will be officially unveiled after the clock strikes midnight tonight.
Doug Shipley, Margaritaville's president/CEO, says 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 completely renovate the casino floor, adding meeting space and a resort-style pool and spa. He said the casino will also open a new steakhouse.
Along with the renovations and expansions, the casino 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 gaming.
We'll have more from tonight's event on Good Morning Mississippi tomorrow.
