Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will remain closed for eight months for renovation. The gambling and casino operator has confirmed its plans for renovation and has reportedly said that the Vegas gambling facility will not receive guests for up to eight months starting February 2020.
“We determined that a phased closing of four months, followed by total closure of four months was not efficient from a construction process nor could we provide a hospitality service experience our guests deserve,” JC Hospitality President and CEO Richard Bosworth told Vegas Review-Journal in a statement.
“Therefore an approximate eight-month closure would be most efficient and ensure a timely opening prior to January 2021,” he added.
According to the reports the casino will close after the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Recently, Jim Allen, CEO, Hard Rock International, and Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen have announced their plans for a Hard Rock Casino in Rockford, Illinois.
Allen also said that the gambling establishment would create 1,000 jobs for local contractors and approximately 1,200 full-time jobs.
The company is yet to make a formal proposal to develop the Rockford casino. However, the company said that once their proposal is approved the gambling facility would be open for guests in about 12 to 14 months.
Hard Rock operates gambling venues in 74 countries across the globe.
