The Greektown Casino-Hotel in downtown Detroit is being renamed with a new name and upgrades, the new owner announced Monday.
From May 1, the 22-year-old casino will be called Hollywood Casino at Greektown.
Penn National bought Greektown casino in May 2019 from Dan Gilberts Jack Entertainment for $ 1 billion.
The company owns 18 other casinos with “Hollywood” in their names.
The casino’s 1,200-square-foot lobby recently underwent $ 30 million in renovations, which include a new cocktail bar, and is in the process of remodeling its 400 hotel rooms and suites.
The hotel is adding new Urban Cocktail and Rock Bar lounges and a new Detroit Taco Company location.
The casino’s steak house, Prism, will also have a new menu.
“Becoming a Hollywood Casino in Greektown will offer our guests the best of both worlds: we retain all the unique charm of the neighborhood that has defined Greektown since we opened our doors, while adding several new amenities that come with be part of Penn National’s flagship brand family, “said John Drake, general manager of the casino, in a statement.
“Whether you are a regular, loyal guest or a first-time guest, we have something new and improved that you can experience and enjoy.”
The casino is also upgrading its gaming technology. It will be the first casino in Michigan to offer mywallet – a cashless, card-free feature that allows people to connect their phones to slot machines and table games, according to Penn National.
The casino also expanded its partnership with Detroit Music Hall to bring a variety of live musical and comedy performances. Among those appearing this year are Michael Bolton, Wanda Sykes, Boyz II Men, Jim Brewer and America.
