Treasure Island Resort and Casino

Surrounded by bluffs and located along the Mississippi River, it’s no wonder Treasure Island is one of the country’s top-rated casinos.

Gaming

A mix of 2,300 slot machines, ranging from one penny to $25, cover Treasure Island’s gaming floor. You can also try your hand at blackjack, poker, and bingo.

Entertainment

Treasure Island has the gravitas to attract big names, but entertainment doesn’t stop at concerts or comedy. “People want to go where they will have fun in an exciting venue with a multitude of entertainment options,” says public relations manager Cindy Taube. For Treasure Island, that means a bowling center and arcade, a pool, and Spirit of the Water excursions on the Mississippi.

Dining

Treasure Island boasts six restaurants, including the famous Tradewinds Buffet—a global menu under the supervision of award-winning chef James Powers. Other dining amenities include a café and sandwich shop.

Hotel

The resort offers more than 480 standard and luxury rooms, including the Presidential Suite, where celebrities and VIPs often spend the night (Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers was a recent guest). Book early because rooms fill fast, especially on the weekends. Weekend rates start at $99, while weekday rates start at $69.
