After more than a year, a $33m expansion project at the Island Resort and Casino’s Palm Tower in Harris, Michigan, US, is almost complete.
From January to July, phase two involved the construction of 128 new rooms, bringing the total to 341 rooms in that tower. For the rest of the year, it was all about phase three.
“Phase three was the finishings,” said general manager Tony Mancilla. “Putting wallpaper on the walls, the flooring, the ceilings. We’re just putting furniture in the last hotel rooms. It’s called punching out the room, meaning we have to examine it and make sure everything works.”
On the 12th floor, there is Horizons Steakhouse, where guests can experience fine dining.
