Harrah’s Completes Major Renovations to Las Vegas Property

For an older casino property to stay current, renovations are a must. From the gaming floor to the hotel property, making changes to the look of the venue as well as entertainment and dining options keeps things fresh. Travelers are more willing to visit a space when it has been updated. Caesars Entertainment understands the importance of updating and changing properties. Just a few days ago, the operator provided an update on the recent changes of its Las Vegas Strip property. A four-year overall of Harrah’s Las Vegas has come to an end, with a total of $200 million used to make the changes.

Details of the Renovation

The celebration covering the newly completed renovations started with the senior vice president and general manager of the property, Dan Walsh, pressing a button to change the exterior to have purple lighting. The new lighting is a bold statement for the property and really allows Harrah’s to stand out on the Strip.

In a statement, Walsh pointed out that the revamping of Harrah’s Las Vegas enhances the guest experience and showcases the fun and energy that makes Las Vegas a ‘unique travel destination’. The new purple lighting can be seen on the exterior of the property as well as in the casino and lobby.

The Valley Tower rooms of the property were renovated back in 2016 and 2018. The redesign of over 2,500 rooms was finished last year. The Mountain Tower was part of the effort, and this portion alone took $70 million to complete. Marnell Architecture took part in the room design creation.

The suites at Harrah’s had a big redesign, with new oversized tubs added along with a dining room and living room separate to the sleep space. There is an option to connect to bedrooms as well.

Harrah’s Las Vegas is an older property, dating back to 1973. It was opened originally as a Holiday Casino and it is one of only a handful of hotel options that are the oldest on the Strip. Eventually, it was renamed as Harrah’s in 1992.

New Amenities and June Celebrations

Harrah’s now offers new amenities and will continue to renovation celebrations throughout the month of June. The Valley Tower is home to the spa of Harrah’s which is now open Friday to Sunday. Guests can schedule treatments at the spa including massages, body exfoliation, and facials. Salon services are also an option for visitors.

The casino will continue to celebrate the changes to the property this month with themed food and beverage specials on offer. The Piano Bar has a new Lavender Martini and Fulton Street Food Hall will offer up themed desserts and pastries. There is also a new Harrah’s celebration dinner on the menu at Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

Additionally, the casino will now be home to Donnie Osmond. The performer is set to start a residency beginning in late August with shows scheduled for the Harrah’s Showroom. Donnie Osmond is a top-rated performer and has seen a great comeback for his career since being showcased on The Masked Singer a few years ago.
