In March, we learned The Quad's room remodel was just weeks away from beginning. Now, we can confirm they are, indeed, underway.
Although quite a few VegasChatter readers have reported receiving sneak peeks of the model rooms, we've yet to see them ourselves or uncover design renderings. (If you have some you want to share on the down low, send them our way.)
South Point is spending $35 million to bring the Priefert Pavilion, an expansion of its event arena and the addition of a tournament bowling facility, to Vegas this summer. But, that's not the only part of the hotel-casino receiving an infusion of new.
The not technically on the Strip, but still on Las Vegas Boulevard property is spending another $3 mil to make improvements in other areas, too. The most noticeable is taking place on the casino floor. Or, rather, to the casino floor.
In June, Bally's execs announced that the property's South tower would be relabeled Jubilee and would feature renovated "ultra modern" accommodations. At the time, November 1 was the earliest available date for bookings, but that changed yesterday. There are now 756 redesigned rooms to crash in and each starts at $99 a night, according to a press release. While the rooms did not get any bigger, they do feature new flat-screen TVs, furniture, beds, carpeting and wall coverings as well as redesigned bathrooms, too. This, however, can not be said for the tower's suites, nor for the north tower, period. We're promised more news on the Jubilee tower's suites "later this year."
Back on the good news front, though, in-room safes are now "complimentary." We just ranted about the WTF $3 safe charge on top of the resort fee. Clearly, our work here is now done.
By now, you've probably seen the new looks of Bellagio's standard accommodations. You may have even stayed in one. (Especially, since they first started coming online back in August of 2011.) But, have you seen the new designs of its suites? Chances are, you may not have as they just recently became complete.
VegasChatter received tours of the resort's newly renovated Bellagio Suite (read: stay here if you want a separate living room and bedroom), Executive Hospitality Suite (read: conference room included), Executive Parlor Suite (read: pool table featured), and the singular 4,705-square-foot, Strip-facing Chairman Suite atop the hotel's Spa Tower (read: if you have to ask how much...). We compiled our snapshots of each into the photo galleries you see below. After you check them out, let us know what you think!
Ok, all you Vegas smarty pants. We've got what, we think, might be a tough one for you. Newly remodeled hotel accommodations that you may not have heard about yet. Or, if you have, actually seen. Take a close look at the renovated room above and then leave your best guess as to the hotel that claims it below. Need some clues first? Here are a few:
●This hotel is not on the Strip.
●The renovation is part of a multi-million dollar refresh that also included the casino floor. (We won't say how much lest you try to Google it!)
●More locals than tourists head here.
●It has just two dining spots.

A month ago, it debuted newly remodeled Gold Club accommodations in the Rush Tower. Accessed by key card only, the new digs now offer a more manly palette of dark brown, tan and crisp white. (See what they looked like before here.) Rooms also feature plasma screen televisions, too. A standard room is shown above while a suite and a bathroom can be seen below.
The glass showers have been installed with care and the vanities nearly there as a $30 million dollar renovation at the Four Seasons comes closer to completion. Some rooms have already been made available but the final finishes on a
grand renovation will be officially complete this coming Saturday, December 8. Want a peek at what's new?
For starters, the picture perfect gold and white digs up top. Anyone worried about spoiling photoshop cred like that can write us their impressions from the desk of the Four Seasons:
Seasoned Four Seasons guests will want to note that the former 180 Degree Strip View Suites are now the Presidential Strip View Suites:
Most press from the changeover has focused on the casino part of The Quad and not the hotel. For a while, there was speculation and rumors that the rooms would be renovated along with the rest of the casino. Why not assume that an entire hotel and casino remodel would include the rooms? When the news was released the Las Vegas Review Journal pointed out that rooms were not scheduled as part of the renovation.
Hotel rooms have been discussed as part of the renovation but, coyly, have never been said to be renovated. Note how rooms are mentioned in between actual renovations in this article in Vegas Inc.
Four Seasons Las Vegas began posting remodeling photos on its Facebook page two weeks ago. The renovation will bring all new digs to the resort by December 8, including the addition of two new Hospitality Suites. (One of which you see under construction above.) Check out the photo gallery to see what $30 million buys you these days. And, click here to see what the rooms looked like before.
One of the things we love most about Vegas is that due to an abundance of hotel rooms throughout the city, you can always find a room that fits your budget. Always. But what if your budget is really, really tiny? Then you may want to consider the Super 8 on Koval Lane.
Now, before you get all insulted about this option. Listen to what's new with the place--the hotel has just completed a $1.5 million top-to-bottom renovation that includes upgrades to the pool, the hot tub, the lobby and the meeting spaces. But the real "wow" factor can be found in the guestrooms which have been upgraded with new carpet, new paint scheme and curtains, flat screen 32” Samsung televisions, all-new bed linens and covers and king-sized Serta beds. And look, hardwood floors!
We found rooms for $75 a night this weekend which is one of the cheaper options in town this weekend. (For comparison, Circus Circus was going for $114 a night.) However, not all rooms feature this cool decor above so when you book the Super 8, make sure to specify the renovated rooms.
We were a bit taken aback today when an unexpected hotel proudly announced the completion of its renovation. Not, because it was done, but because we didn't even know one was underway.
The finished project can be seen above and the
generic timeless contemporary design could easily be pictured at just about any Vegas hotel. But, the question is -- can you guess which one?
