There are things happening behind the scenes to the masses but in the public eye every day in Las Vegas. If you’re obsessed with Las Vegas you might already know that the California Hotel and Casino (AKA The Cal) is undergoing renovations. As part of an effort to refresh and bring dining operations among their Las Vegas properties Boyd Gaming replaced popular Pasta Pirate with California Noodle House, an Asian Fusion restaurant. More recently they started to change layout and design of the casino floor.
The work has finally reached a point where they’re ready to release plans of their renovations to The Cal to the public. The multi-million-dollar redesign and renovation of this historic property will give an entirely new look and feel to the popular downtown Las Vegas casino-hotel.
The Cal will be designed to embrace its popularity with visitors from Hawaii. Bill Boyd, Executive Chairman of Boyd Gaming says “The luxurious new look and feel of the California Hotel and Casino will offer our longtime guests an elevated new experience at the property they love. It will also provide first-time guests a new incentive to visit the Cal, and experience our legendary Spirit of Aloha.”
When renovations are complete on the casino floor in early 2016, almost every public area in the property, including the valet and porte cochère, guest registration and casino floor, will have been refreshed and inspired by modern Hawaiian colonial design. The design features will focus on metallic finishes, luxe textures like alpine white granite, and a dark, rich wood finish to accent molding throughout the casino.
Once the public area renovations are complete Boyd Gaming will move to the hotel rooms. There will be a complete redesign and upgrade of nearly 500 hotel rooms and suites. In a press release Boyd Gaming mentions that The Cal will have new dining and drinking projects developed. They didn’t go into details of these new restaurants and bars.
Boyd Gaming is a big player in downtown Las Vegas. Including Main Street Station and Fremont Hotel and Casino they operate 3 of the 13 casinos (never forget La Bayou and Mermaids) and 3 of the 10 hotels in downtown Las Vegas. The 3 properties are linked together with the other Boyd Gaming properties around the country through their B-Connected players club.
