The Midwest’s newest meeting destination.
Find all the thrills of Vegas in the heart of the Midwest at the new FireKeepers Casino Hotel. Situated between Kalamazoo and Detroit in Battle Creek, Mich., the 242-room hotel will debut in December adjacent to the existing FireKeepers Casino, which has offered 107,000 square feet of Vegas-style gaming since 2009. Now with seven dining options and more than 20,000 square feet of meeting space accommodating groups of up to 2,000, FireKeepers Casino Hotel gives planners an all-in-one meeting destination with everything they need to get down to business - and maybe even squeeze in a little playtime.
Meeting space at the FireKeepers Casino Hotel is flexible and well equipped. The property’s 20,000 square feet of meeting space, all on one level, includes four 600-squarefoot meeting rooms, a 17,500-square-foot ballroom that can be divided into four sections, an intimate 18-seat boardroom, plus pre-function space. An on-site team of professionals is also on hand to assist with audiovisual and other technical needs.
After the meeting concludes in the boardroom, the fun really begins on FireKeepers Casino Hotel’s casino floor. No matter the preferred gaming style, 2,800 slot machines, 70 table games, a live poker room, and a recently expanded bingo hall will keep groups entertained. For non-gaming guests, the 150-seat Dacey’s Sports Bar offers 14 big-screen TVs and local brews, and Kabaret is the local hotspot for live music, dancing, and comedy acts. When it comes to dining at FireKeepers Casino Hotel, seven options ranging from quick and casual to elegant and upscale suit group functions of all kinds. The 70-seat Nibi is renowned for its steaks and local seafood, while the variety of the 300-seat Mijem Buffet aims to please the most diverse of crowds.
