If you are planning a holiday to Las Vegas you’ll be pleased to hear that thousands of hotel rooms along the famous Strip are currently being upgraded at eight hotels.
In total there is close to $500 million being invested in casino room upgrades with around 9,000 rooms due to undergo work before the end of the year. The renovations are taking place at hotels including Monte Carlo, Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Planet Hollywood Resort, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Harrah’s, Bally’s and Palazzo.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. is leading the way and has invested about $350 million in upgrading 4,500 rooms this year at their various resorts. Last week they announced the completion of the renovation of 1,181 rooms at the Palace Tower.
The Cosmopolitan is currently upgrading about 2,800 rooms at a cost of $150 million while the Palazzo has also said that it is upgrading all 2,876 rooms with work set to finish by January.
The renovation work comes as hotel occupancy and room rates continue to rise along the Strip. Occupancy was at close to 92% in the first eight months of the year, with the average daily rate up 4.3% to $127.70.
The upgrades mean that the hotels will be charging more per room but customers will have a more enjoyable experience overall and loyal customers may be able to stay in the renovated rooms for free if they have enough loyalty points.
Wynn Las Vegas is also completing an extensive upgrade to its curtains and carpets in the Tower Suit.
In short, if you are off for your dream Vegas holiday, you now have a better chance than ever of staying in a top quality room.
