Mystic Lake Center

The Mystic Lake Center is the newest addition to Mystic Lake Casino Hotel – the only full-service resort in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area.  Mystic Lake Center opened in early 2018. With the addition of 180 hotel rooms in a stunning new tower, the new Mystic Lake Center joins Mystic Lake Casino Hotel to form the second-largest hotel in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area.

Guests will experience luxury, modern amenities and sweeping west-facing golf course views as one of the first guests in the new Promenade Tower—adjacent to the new Mystic Lake Center and everything Mystic Lake has to offer. It’s all just steps away from restaurants, bars and nonstop entertainment. Learn more.

Mystic Lake Center is located just 30 minutes south west of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
