MILWAUKEE – Potawatomi Bingo Casino on Wednesday announced it will change its name to Potawatomi Hotel & Casino this summer.

The name change will reflect Potawatomi’s new $150 million, 381-room hotel, which is expected to open in fall. This marks the first time the property has changed its name in more than two decades, according to a Potawatomi statement.

The 18-story hotel features floor-to-ceiling windows, a full-service casual restaurant, lobby bar, exercise area and more than 10,000 feet of additional meeting space, the statement said.

“Changing the property’s name to Potawatomi Hotel & Casino marks an exciting new chapter in the storied evolution of our business,” said Mike Goodrich, general manager. “In 23 years, the Potawatomi name has become known for premier entertainment here in Milwaukee. As an established brand, we felt it was important to retain a name that people know and recognize.”
