Some of Las Vegas’ most recognizable casinos have recently undergone extensive renovations, and one more high-profile venue has recently joined the ranks.
Each of Las Vegas’s megaresorts and casinos has a unique theme or aesthetic to draw visitors. The iconic Caesars Palace by Caesars Entertainment (CZR) – Get Caesars Entertainment Inc. Report is reminiscent of ancient Rome with its opulent architecture and colossal statues.
Caesars’ soon-to-be-sold Flamingo uses the bird’s pink color to tie the theme together, even in areas of the property where the flamingo habitat is not visible, while MGM Mirage’s Paris Las Vegas is known for its signature miniature (but still giant) take on the Eiffel Tower.
Resorts International, a Division of MGM Some of MGM Resorts International’s hotels also feature similarly daring decor. Because of Luxor’s Egyptian pyramid shape, some of its elevators must make lateral movements as they ascend and descend. The Excalibur property has been designed to resemble a medieval castle, complete with turrets, ramparts, and, well, everything else except a moat.
Now, MGM is planning major renovations to New York-New York, another of its highly themed casino/resorts, with the intention of emphasizing the hotel/representation casino’s of the “city that never sleeps.”
MGM Expands Its New York Presence in the Big Apple
MGM is planning a massive renovation of its New York-New York casino, which will include updating all 1,830 guest rooms and 155 suites. HVS Design is in charge of the $63 million renovation, which will “feature vibrant new designs and upgraded in-room amenities that will appeal to travelers from around the world,” as stated in a press release.
The renovation is intended to give New York-New York a more New York feel. That doesn’t mean we can start rolling in the hot dog stands and blasting the horns all night. However, the revamp will attract “Both New York and Las Vegas are fantastic. New York City references are found throughout the renovation, with elements like faux brick walls and accent colors like “Big Apple Red” and “Taxicab Yellow” creating an authentic NYC atmosphere.”
Don’t take this as an attempt at hyperbole (like the giant Statue of Liberty out front). Instead, convenient features like adjustable desks, wall-mounted USB and USB-C power outlets, and more storage space will be integrated into a design that nods subtly to New York.
New York-New York is in the midst of a very exciting period. We just recently debuted the Mad Apple show by Cirque du Soleil to rave reviews from our patrons. according to the resort’s President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Neubecker. “The next step in maintaining the resort’s vitality and giving guests new reasons to visit is to undertake a remodel of our rooms and suites. It doesn’t matter if they’re in town for business or pleasure, guests will find our new rooms to be a chic and contemporary retreat from the frenzy of Sin City.
Timeline for completion of the project is set for the summer of 2023.
A Huge Remodel is Also in Progress at Caesars.
The New York-New York will see improvements from MGM, but Caesars has plans to completely renovate one of its Las Vegas Strip hotels. The Ballys casino is currently being rebranded as the company’s more gambler-friendly Horseshoe brand.
Legendary gambler Jack Binion, whose name graces the Binions property in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, is widely credited with establishing the Horseshoe brand in the city. Its Fremont Street casino, formerly known as Horseshow, will soon open on the Strip.
According to a press release from Caesars, “Horseshoe Casinos have been the home of the best odds, highest limits, and biggest jackpots since 1951.” “Horseshoe was founded by a gambler with the goal of providing the best possible gaming experience for other gamblers. Horseshoe has stayed true to its roots as it has expanded to new markets across the country by maintaining its exciting no-limit betting culture.”
Before spring of 2023, construction on the new Horseshoe is expected to be finished.
