MTR Gaming Group Inc., owners of Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Erie, Pennsylvania, announced it plans to break ground in June on a hotel that it expects will "enhance" the casino experience.

The hotel, called the Bayfront Inn and Suites, will be built and owned by BT Management LLC and will be branded to the Wyndham Hotel Group.

A tourism official said MTR Gaming "obviously has done feasibility studies and feels the market can handle" another hotel. The area currently has about 4,400 hotel and motel rooms.
