PALACE CASINO RESORT TO OPEN RENOVATED CASINO AS A SMOKE FREE RESORT

Biloxi, Miss. – When the Palace Casino Resort in Biloxi, Miss. opens the second floor of its expansion and renovation project on June 14, the casino, hotel, restaurants and lounge/sports bar will all be smoke free.

Smoking will be allowed outside the main building, and a new $1 million smoking lounge has been created to accommodate smokers. The smoking lounge is conveniently located in close proximity to the gaming floor, restaurants and lounge/sports bar.  It features comfortable furnishings, flat-screen televisions and its own air conditioning and heating system.

Keith Crosby, general manager of the Palace, says, “Over the years, I have continually received feedback from customers who have been concerned about the quality of air in our casino, and all casinos for that matter.  And, if you look at the statistics, nearly 80 percent of the public does not smoke.  Going smoke free is the right thing to do, and it’s the right time to do it.  We have invested a great deal into creating a beautiful new resort for our customers, as well as our associates.  We’re starting off fresh, and this decision will allow us to maintain our fresh air quality, creating a healthier, cleaner and more enjoyable environment for everyone.”

Crosby concludes, “We believe going smoke free gives us a competitive advantage.  We’re proud to be a leader in our market.”

 

About Palace Casino Resort
Palace Casino Resort, located at 154 Howard Avenue in Biloxi, Mississippi, originally opened in January 1997.  The Palace grew to become a four-diamond resort with numerous amenities and careful attention to service.  In August 2005, the resort’s dockside casino was completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.  The majority of the resort’s hotel withstood the storm, and on December 30, 2005, Palace Casino Resort reopened its casino, along with a buffet and the resort’s fine dining restaurant, within the first two floors of the hotel.  Among its current amenities are The Preserve Golf Club, Palace Marina and Mignon’s Steaks & Seafood.  In spring 2010, the Palace began a large-scale expansion and renovation.  The new property is opening in three phases.  The all-new buffet opened April 18, 2011.  The new gaming floor, lounge/sports bar, café and grill will open June 14. The hotel lobby, atrium, spa, gift shop, meeting rooms, Mignon’s Lounge and high limit gaming area will be the last to be revealed, with the completion of the project in late summer.
