Cincinnati casino inks agreements with downtown hotels

Feb. 08, 2013 @ 12:38 AM

CINCINNATI — High-rollers and VIPs at the new casino in downtown Cincinnati will get free rooms or discounts at seven local hotels.

Casino officials said Wednesday it's just the beginning of more expected promotions and ties with local businesses. The $400 million Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati opens March 4, the last of the four voter-approved gambling halls around Ohio to debut.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that casino is partnering with upscale hotels that include the 21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati, The Cincinnatian Hotel and The Westin Cincinnati.

Officials said the deals are critical for the casino, which doesn't have its own hotel like competing casinos in southeastern Indiana.
