Aces Hotel Update

In November of 2018, Running Aces broke ground on their new hotel. The 116-room, five story hotel has begun taking reservations for April 1, 2020 and beyond.  The hotel includes a mixture of standard rooms, extended stay rooms, and high-end VIP options.  Also included are amenities such as an indoor pool, exercise area, and business center.  According to Running Aces’ website “one side of the hotel will face the race track and have a perfect elevated view to cheer on the horses.”

Running Aces signed a franchise agreement with Brooklyn Park-based GrandStay Hospitality for the project.  The hotel has been designed to meet the needs of the area; serving casino and racetrack guests while also providing lodging for events happening at the National Sports Center and golf courses in nearby Blaine. It will be a welcome feature for people attending the Racetrack’s concerts, car shows, poker tournaments, and other events.  Aces Hotel will also offer space for residents and businesses to hold meetings, events, and receptions.

The City of Columbus commissioned a hotel feasibility study in 2016 which stated that the area was well suited for a 75-room hotel.  When the hotel is completed, Running Aces will become a well-rounded entertainment destination in Columbus and the north metro trade area.
