Caesars Leisure unveils plans for multimillion-dollar renovation

Caesars Entertainment on Tuesday announced plans for a multi-million dollar renovation of the original main entrance, main casino and porte-cochère at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip.

The company said in a press release that the project would begin in July and be completed by New Year’s Eve. The project will offer an “extravagant entrance area, newly designed play areas and a new lobby bar”. According to the company, the main entrance to the property will be completely rebuilt.

“Upon completion, guests will be greeted by a dramatic and soaring dome and barrel ceiling over a stunning 4.5-meter statue of Augustus Caesar,” the company said. “The project also includes two new state-of-the-art play pits that will flank the upgraded entrance, a beautiful new lobby bar, and a renovation of the property’s legendary vaulted table play floor.”

Sean McBurney, regional president of Caesars Entertainment, said the project involves “a complete redesign of our main entrance.”

“The complete remodeling of the main entrance to one of the world’s most famous travel destinations is not an easy task and we look forward to getting started and bringing our guests a stunning new visual reception,” said McBurney.

During construction July through December, there will be some changes to the property entrance at 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. South. They include:

– The main server on Las Vegas Boulevard South is only suitable for Caesars Rewards Diamond and Seven Star members.

– The Colosseum valet service (ground floor of the Caesars Palace car park on Frank Sinatra Drive) offers space for all valet guests.

– The pick-up and drop-off of ridesharing will be moved to the exit doors next to the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden.

– Express check-in / check-out kiosks for hotels will be set up at all available entrances.
