Plaza Hotel and Casino debuts new rooms and suites
(Las Vegas).- Exemplifying the growth of downtown Las Vegas, the Plaza Hotel and Casino celebrated its new Luxe guest rooms and suites with City of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, and invited guests who had the opportunity to tour and toast downtown’s newest premium hotel accommodations.
Refurbishment included redesigned floor plans paired with a variety of high-end décor, technology and energy efficiency upgrades.
“Downtown Las Vegas is booming – it’s evolving and growing,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “We are excited for all the projects from Fremont Street to Symphony Park that will bring more people to downtown looking for memorable experiences. That’s why we created the Luxe rooms and suites, dramatically raising the standard for high-quality hotel rooms in the heart of downtown.”
The $15 million renovation transformed more than 120 guest rooms on the top floors of the Plaza’s North Tower. Significant infrastructure changes were made to create the Luxe rooms that average 325 square feet. For example, adjoining doors were removed to offer more storage options with modern wardrobes, and 16 rooms were combined to create eight new suites.
The rooms’ contemporary décor features warm wood tones and mixed metals with bold colors and graphics. Luxe rooms also have high-end design details, such as 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.Every room has an Amazon Echo Dot in the alarm clock enabling guests to easily use 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.
Other sought-after guest amenities include 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.
Each room also has energy efficient LED lighting and an upgraded climate control system that senses when the room is unoccupied to manage settings that save energy without compromising guest comfort. 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.
