Potawatomi Hotel & Casino Review

Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Potawatomi Bingo Casino features more than 1.1 million square feet of space and is one of the largest Indian casinos in the U.S. It is owned and operated by the Forest County Potawatomi Community, which opened the Canal Street casino on March 7, 1991. The property features a total of 500 guest rooms spread across its two towers, which includes an additional 119 standard rooms that joined the existing 381 upon completion of the new 19-story wing in August 2019.

The $80 million investment and 180,000-square-foot wing also includes another roomy 1,600 square foot top-floor suite, the Chairman's Suite, along with more meeting space and the first spa in the Menomonee Valley, Ember Salon & Spa, complete with a barber shop and salon. Potawatomi's seven dining venues and multiple bars serve everything from the finest in steaks and seafood to the delectable tastes of Asia and Italy, and the tastiest craft cocktails and the best wine.

Gaming amenities include a 5,000 square foot off-track betting center and a 1,350-seat Bingo Hall, nearly 100 gaming tables, including a 20-table poker room, and nearly 3,000 machines. In total it stacks up to more than 180,000 square feet of gaming space.

This place is not to be missed if you're passing through Milwaukee, and for the avid gambler, this is a truly great casino you will want to have on your must-see list.

The Forest County Potawatomi Community also run the smaller Potawatomi Carter Casino Hotel in Wabeno, Wisconsin.
