Major New Resort on US Highway 85, Deadwood Hill, Plans 2009 Completion

TDG Communications, DEADWOOD, S.D. (11/18/08) - The Lodge at Deadwood, the new upscale resort and convention center now under construction, will help Deadwood become a major destination for conventions, corporate events, board retreats, trade shows, weddings, and private catered functions.

Work on the $47 million project began in July, and The Lodge at Deadwood is scheduled to open its doors in the fall of 2009.

Ideally located off U.S. Highway 85, across from Tatanka: Story of the Bison, this four-story resort complex will offer sweeping, panoramic views of the Black Hills and the plains of Western South Dakota. Nestled at the base of Mount Roosevelt on 25 acres, this full-service, year-round resort is ideal for business gatherings, casino gaming and endless entertainment possibilities.

Resort highlights include 140 luxury hotel guestrooms and suites, a convention center large enough to accommodate up to 1,700 people, a first-class restaurant, a sports bar, and a year-around indoor water park. The resort's large, Las Vegas-style casino with poker, blackjack and slot machines, will provide a complete vacation experience. Plus, guests will receive individual attention that comes with a resort of this caliber.

With more than 16,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, Deadwood will be able to compete for large regional and national gatherings for the first time. Professional groups, trade associations and social organizations are attracted to the unique, historic setting and relaxed atmosphere for which Deadwood is famous. Recognizing the need for meeting facilities, the City of Deadwood formed a public-private partnership with the resort's developer to build and operate the convention center.

"We couldn't be more excited to have The Lodge at Deadwood opening in 2009," said George Milos, Executive Director of the Deadwood Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau. "Deadwood has long been at the forefront of marketing South Dakota, but one thing the town has missed is the ability to host large conventions. The Lodge at Deadwood gives us the opportunity to take our community to the next level. Plus the owners and management have a terrific reputation of providing first-class service and amenities." . . . .  See full  TDG Communications story. <= Click
