Tioga Downs is being converted to a casino and has now also began construction to build a hotel to go with it.
Plans for the hotel include 161 guest rooms. 11 of those rooms will be suites. A new restaurant will be added. As well as a full service spa that will be 2,000 square feet. There will also be two decks on the rooftop.
The casino resort is located in the New York's Southern Tier.
$32 million in tax revenue is the estimated yearly earning for the state by Tioga Downs. Schools across New York will receive $25 million of that money. $1.6 million will be paid each to Tioga County and the town of Nichols. The surrounding area will receive $3.2 million.
Between 150 and 200 people will be hired for full time positions. Payroll will exceed $6 million.
