Pinnacle Entertainment on Tuesday announced plans for a US$20 million hotel project at its Boomtown Casino New Orleans property.

Construction is expected to begin within 60 days and take approximately 13 months to complete. The hotel addition will create approximately 50 new permanent jobs and more than 150 construction-related jobs. The Louisiana-based Lemoine Co. will be the general contractor.

Pinnacle Entertainment owns and operates four properties in Louisiana: Boomtown New Orleans, Boomtown Casino Hotel Bossier City, L’Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles and L’Auberge Casino & Hotel Baton Rouge, which is scheduled to open this summer, pending regulatory approval.
