US – Plaza Hotel and Casino upgrades with $15m renovation

By - 10 June 2019

The Plaza Hotel and Casino is upgrading its guest experience with a $15m renovation to transform more than 100 hotel rooms and suites on the top floors of the North Tower.

The new Luxe Rooms offer enhanced guest accommodations with a variety of technology, energy efficiency and décor upgrades. Now available for reservations starting 1 August, Luxe Rooms can be booked online.

“Just as downtown Las Vegas continues to evolve, the Plaza’s new Luxe Rooms are raising the standard for accommodations in the heart of downtown,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “We are proud to debut the Luxe Rooms, offering our guests beautiful new hotel rooms and suites with numerous modern conveniences and sought-after amenities.”

Significant infrastructure changes were made to create the Luxe Rooms that average 325 square feet. Adjoining doors were removed to allow for more storage options with modern wardrobes, and 16 rooms were combined to create eight new suites.

The new Luxe Rooms incorporate similar design details that debuted when the Plaza renovated its pool suites, including warm wood tones and mixed metals with bold colors and graphics. They also feature laminate flooring with area rugs and a barn door entry into reimagined bathrooms with custom vanities, oversized walk-in showers, quartz counters and a blend of dimensional tiles.

In addition to the contemporary décor, the Luxe Rooms offer modernized entertainment and climate control systems. Every room has an Amazon Echo Dot within the alarm clock that enables guests to easily use general Alexa commands to check the weather, play music and contact hotel staff for assistance, such as requesting housekeeping, reserving a pool cabana, or making dinner reservations at Oscar’s Steakhouse.

Each room also features energy efficient LED lighting and an upgraded climate control system from Verdant that senses when the room is unoccupied to manage settings that save energy without compromising guest comfort. Every room offers various guest conveniences, such as a multitude of built-in USB charging ports, a 49-inch flat-screen television with premium cable, a coffee maker and refrigerator. The eight new Luxe suites also include a wet bar, and all Luxe Rooms offer stunning mountain views or overlook the high energy activity of Fremont Street.

The rooms also have state-of-the-art RFID card entry, a safety feature that has recently been installed in all 1,000 guest rooms at the Plaza.

Whiting-Turner Contracting was the general contractor for construction of the new rooms and the Sage Design Group developed and managed the renovation project’s interior design.
