The Running Aces Casino is to open a new hotel in Columbus next month, bringing a $18m project to fruition.

The company is to launch the 116-bedroom hotel alongside its card room and race track after a 17-month construction project spearheaded by the Cunningham Group and Truline Construction.

The Scandinavian-inspired concept is the focus of the interior, with original art including a custom mural by a local artist, featured throughout.

GrandStay Hospitality LLC will operate the hotel following its official launch on March 11.

CEO Taro Ito said: “We conducted a feasibility study, and regardless of the casino being here, the North Metro area was really in need of a quality hotel. A hotel could stand on its own.

“This is a boutique hotel,” he said. “You put all that together ⁠— horse racing, trout air, gaming, the entertainment, and all that stuff — and it just makes for an attractive place to come during the summer and experience Minnesota.”
