Hospitality and casino gambling giant Caesars Entertainment is planning to make significant improvements to its Harveys Lake Tahoe Hotel & Casino project. The casino operator has announced major capital improvement projects for the property in 2019-2020.
Caesars has said that the improvement projects would see an investment of approximately 41 million. The plan involves renovating all 519 hotel rooms in Lake Tower. It also includes adding new balcony suites, a new casino bar, and lounge.
Caesars confirmed that in the coming year they will also deliver on the promise to have popular chef Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen Lake Tahoe restaurant up and running.
In a statement to the press, Brad Bellhouse, regional president for Caesars Entertainment in Northern Nevada said: “Harveys Lake Tahoe is an iconic resort on the South Shore and continues to offer enhanced amenities for guests to enjoy.”
“Caesars Entertainment is committed to elevating guest experiences at our resorts and advancing the Lake Tahoe tourism economy,” he added.
The rooms at the hotel would see the renovation done by June 2020. The idea is to give the accommodation facilities a more fresh and modern look, say the designers DEZMOTIF Studios who have been chosen for the renovation project.
The designers have said that the bathroom at the hotel will also be equipped with the highest modern amenities.
The Hell’s Kitchen which is scheduled to open in January has already been popular amongst the locals. It has had 12,000 reservations so far.
Earlier in the year, Caesars Entertainment inked a merger deal with Eldorado Resorts. The move was pushed through as activist investor Carl Icahn who also became the single largest shareholder in Caesars this year was all for Caesars merger. Icahn said that it was the only way forward for the company.
Since the merger, Caesars has been focussing on developing domestic properties. Recently, it also confirmed that it will no longer be pursuing a casino license in Japan as it plans to focus more on the domestic market and its merger with Eldorado.
