In Minnesota this week, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community celebrated the opening of a new hotel tower and convention center at its Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, just 20 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis.
The Mystic Lake Center now is home to a nine-story hotel and conference center, attached to the casino in Prior Lake,
The tower includes a 70,000-square-foot event center with two large ballrooms and an array of smaller spaces. The upper stories include 180 hotel rooms, each with a view of its 18-hole golf course. The complex now has a total of 766 hotels rooms.
Angela Heikes, the head of the tribe’s gaming division, said “It’s an exciting time for the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.”
