During the 1986 expansion program, convention facilities increased from 25,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet, hotel rooms grew to 2,100 with the completion of an additional tower, and another 15,000 square feet were added to the casino.

The second phase of construction will include a 547-room, 19-story tower to be built where the pool now stands, adjacent to the Holiday Casino property. The first five stories will contain parking facilities. The remaining 14 floors will contain guest rooms, with penthouse suites on the 19th floor.
