Casino Hotels in Northern Indiana

Looking for a hotel with entertainment on site?

The Blue Chip Casino, Hotel and Spa offers the 22-story Spa Blu Tower and the original 8-story Blue Chip Tower. With nearly 500 rooms, fine dining, 10,000 square foot spa and the spacious and comfortable casino all on one level, you will almost forget where you are and instead think you are in Las Vegas!  

There are smoking and non-smoking floors available at the casino hotels. For guests interested in other non-smoking areas of the casinos, we've created a blog post for you here.
