The addition of 850 spaces in a new valet garage at Greektown Casino-Hotel ("Greektown") that upon completion will significantly boost overall parking accessibility and capacity is part of the company's ongoing facility improvement program.
Planned for completion in the first quarter of 2013, the new valet garage will have access to the casino via an elevated, moving walkway that spans Monroe Street, and a location that facilitates quicker car retrieval times than the company's existing valet garage.
"Our new valet garage facility is expected to make visiting Greektown Casino-Hotel easier than ever before," said Michael Puggi, president and chief executive officer of Greektown Superholdings, Inc. "Access to the new garage will be convenient, and the moving walkway that directly connects the garage to the casino will allow our guests easy access to some of the best gaming in the Detroit area."
"Not only will we be able to better serve those who choose valet parking," continued Puggi, "but those who choose to self-park as well. The additional parking capacity introduced by the new valet garage will also increase availability of our existing self-park garage."
Construction of the new valet garage is underway, and represents one of several property improvements planned for Greektown Casino-Hotel. Among these improvements, is the addition of a fine-dining restaurant within the casino, designed to offer guests a distinctive dining experience.
"We're looking forward to these projects for a number of reasons, but first and foremost it will allow us to bring new customers to the property and offer more to our regular guests," said Puggi.
"We're also pleased to continue our investment in the city of Detroit. The planned improvements, including the new valet garage, are expected to employ over 200 workers in the city, and represent our ongoing commitment to the city's revitalization."
