In 2016 Caesars Entertainment planned about 5,000 hotel room renovations at five different casinos in Las Vegas. This year they’re planning on refreshing approximately 7,000 rooms at their properties all around the country. The largest of the renovations will take place at the oldest casino on the Vegas Strip.
Caesars Entertainment announced that they will be launching a $90 million complete renovation of 1,270 rooms at Flamingo. A spokesperson for Caesars Entertainment confirms that the FAB rooms are the rooms that will receive the upgrades. This is the partially renovated room with faux wood flooring and never-updated bathroom. The new renovations will fix both of those issues.
“Flamingo Las Vegas is an iconic resort filled with 70 years of rich history and unforgettable experiences,” said Bob Morse, President of Hospitality for Caesars Entertainment. “The renovated rooms pay homage to the property’s past, while also giving it a fresh and modern new look.”
The fully renovated rooms will feature, contemporary and retro-chic designs. The room accents will celebrate Flamingo’s rich history as the centerpiece of the Las Vegas Strip. After looking at the rendering photos and videos this looks like the kind of design that should have taken place 5 years ago. The main room FAB renovation isn’t too bad. However, the lack of a bathroom upgrade stands out. This new design will compliment the GO room design.
Forrest Perkins did the design for the new rooms at Flamingo. The artistic design of the rooms was “inspired to sparkle like glitter and shine like champagne, with vibrant hues of gold and bright pops of flamingo pink, keeping true to the property’s character and charisma.”
The renovation at the Flamingo will begin in late August 2017. Some rooms should be available in November 2017. All room renovations at Flaming should be complete by the second quarter of 2018.
Caesars Palace Room Renovations
In the first quarter of the year, Caesars Entertainment began work on renovating 1,100 Palace Tower rooms at Caesars Palace. Renderings and specific information on this renovation are not available yet. Expect a design with clean lines, modern finishes, and an airy feel similar to what we’ve seen at Harrahs, Planet Hollywood, and the Julius Tower at Caesars Palace.
