The Erie area has a new hotel, and if you like hitting the Presque Isle Downs and Casino, you might find yourself booking a room.
Three years ago, Bruce Thaler, the managing partner of the Baymont Inn and Suites, met with officials from the casino about building the first Baymont Hotel in the Erie area.
Tonight's ribbon cutting ceremony opened the doors to the four story, 117 room hotel complete with a high-end gym.
Under the agreement, the casino will manage the hotel that is located directly across from the casino.
In addition to the convenient location, there is a free shuttle service to and from the casino 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
