LAS VEGAS, May 18, 2017 — Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ:CZR) ("Caesars Entertainment") today announced that, as part of its continued commitment to providing guests with the best possible experience, the company will be launching a $90 million complete renovation of 1,270 rooms at Flamingo Las Vegas. The renovation will begin in late August 2017, with the first guest arrivals expected in November 2017, and final completion of all rooms expected in the second quarter of 2018.
"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 unique, contemporary and retro-chic designs with accents that celebrate Flamingo's rich history as the centerpiece of the Las Vegas Strip. Designed by Forrest Perkins, the rooms were 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.
Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Flamingo Las Vegas helped define the Strip, and as the city grows, it continues to represent the authentic Vegas experience. The resort celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2016, featuring more than 3,500 guest rooms and suites and is home to a sprawling 15-acre pool and wildlife habitat complete with waterfalls, mature island vegetation and tropical wildlife, three distinctive pools and several outdoor wedding gardens.
Flamingo Las Vegas offers a wide variety of dining options with eateries such as Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, Center Cut Steakhouse, Paradise Garden Las Vegas Buffet and Carlos'n Charlie's. An all-star line-up of entertainers includes brother-sister duo Donny & Marie, Legends in Concert, Piff the Magic Dragon and X Burlesque.
In 2016, Caesars Entertainment upgraded more than 4,800 rooms at four of its Las Vegas resorts, including Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Paris Las Vegas and Harrah's Las Vegas. By the end of this year, more than 50% of Las Vegas rooms at Caesars properties will have been upgraded since 2014, demonstrating the company's commitment to providing the best experience possible for its guests.
