The company is planning a US$40 million project that includes a 150-room hotel.

US.- Triple Crown Casinos has announced its plans to start construction on what will be Cripple Creek’s second-largest hotel. The project that will start construction in spring 2019 is set to help attract more tourist to the Colorado town and gambling halls.

The company said that the project is estimated to cost approximately US$40 million. It will include more than 5,000 square feet of meeting space, an upscale rooftop restaurant and other amenities, said Larry Hill, CEO of the parent company for the Brass Ass, McGills and Midnight Rose casinos.

The five-story hotel is scheduled to open in the second half of 2020 and will be attached to the Brass Ass and Triple Crown’s parking garage. Hill said that the hotel would not carry a national brand.

“With a robust economy in Colorado Springs and Colorado’s tourism options growing, we recognize that we need to differentiate the Cripple Creek experience to remain competitive,” Hill said in a news release. “We feel the additional guest rooms will help Cripple Creek take the next step in becoming more of an overnight destination for regional and tourist markets.”
