L'Auberge du Lac Hotel and Casino has been open for just over a year now, but already it's expanding to the tune of $45,000,000. The massive hotel complex will soon be growing. The groundbreaking for the new addition took place just hours ago. An additional 250 rooms, suites, and a new resort pool are being added. Pinnacle entertainment CEO Daniel Lee was at the groundbreaking and explains how this project translates into new jobs for Southwest Louisiana. Once the hotel expansion is completed, construction on the entire complex will have cost more than 400 million dollars and Pinnacle Entertainment will employee more than than 2,500 people here in Southwest Louisiana.
