The Friedmutter Group, whose work includes the Cosmopolitan and Red Rock Resort, will oversee the interior design. Klai Juba Architects, who worked on Mandalay Bay and the Eastside Cannery, will handle exterior and structural improvements.
The Quad will retain the current number of 2,543 rooms and suites, along with many other features of the Palace. Those include the Shangri-la Pool, Embers steakhouse, Burger Palace, Betty’s Diner, Genseng 3, Quesadilla and the Emperor’s Buffet.
The changes also will include adding 15,000 square feet of gaming space. The casino floor is now about 50,000 square feet.
Sneaky? Maybe. Well structured corporate PR? Definitely.
A look at room rates for Sunday, January 13 show that rooms at The Quad will only cost $24 or $25. This is the least expensive Caesars hotel room price in Las Vegas. Now, it's safe to assume that we wouldn't be paying only $25 for a recently renovated hotel room. It's also safe to assume that older rooms at Harrah's and Rio wouldn't be more expensive than a renovated room.
Caesars never said that that the rooms at The Quad would be renovated and, despite wishful thinking and assumptions (this is why you never assume), they won't be. The rooms may be remodeled on a rainy day in the distant future in a galaxy far, far away, but that won't happen now. The Quad will remain the
dirtiest cheapest place to rest your head on The Strip.
Editor's Note: We asked Caesars Entertainment just what the plans were for the rooms at The Quad. Our query went unanswered.
