LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A tower from one Las Vegas resort is now being annexed by France … so to speak, as it becomes part of the Paris Las Vegas hotel.
According to the news release from Caesars Entertainment, the Jubilee Tower at Horseshoe Las Vegas will soon be part of the Paris Las Vegas resort. The move will cost $100 million to make and will include renovating the current building’s interior and exterior to the “Versailles Tower.”
Jason Gregorec the Senior Vice President and General Manager for both resorts said 756 guestrooms will be redesigned to create some of the largest standard rooms on the Las Vegas Strip. The smallest rooms begin at 436 square feet with some, facing the west, receiving balconies that overlook the Strip.
In documents Clark County Commissioners approved in early April, Caesars Entertainment will also add roughly 17 feet on top of the building with a new roof, along with a new pedestrian bridge connecting the two buildings.
“We took this tower because of the way it’s situated and also the great response we get from the Paris brand. We’re going to create a very new and modern, fun, Parisian theme,” Gregorec said from the Paris Hotel pool deck Monday afternoon.
The remodel comes after a recent rebrand of the former Bally’s Hotel, now the Horseshoe Hotel. However, Gregorec said the Jubilee Tower has not seen a remodel inside since 2014.
Additionally, the new construction comes as the boulevard in front of it gets repaved for November’s F1. The Las Vegas Boulevard portion of the track is currently being worked on until May 19, with a second round beginning on July 23 until July 28.
“There’s a well-thought-out plan how the traffic will be, I guess, interrupted, but it’s part of Las Vegas. It’s the growing pains. We feel good about it,” Gregorec said.
The new rooms are set to begin construction “in the next couple of months” according to Gregorec and finished “by year’s end.” The pedestrian bridge is expected to be completed in early 2024.
When asked if the tower construction will be done before F1, Gregorec did not give a definitive answer.
