The former mid-Strip Caesars Entertainment property known as Bill's Gamblin Hall will reopen as the upscale Gansevoort Las Vegas in January of 2014 according to a USA Today article released two days ago (March 15, 2013). Bill's closed in February 2013 to undergo a $180 million renovation which was previously reported in an LVE article (linked below).
The Gansevoort Hotel Group , a company with a reputation for upscale branding and management, will oversee the transformation. The company currently runs three upper-tier properties, with two in New York City and a third located in Turks and Caicos.
The new hotel will only house 188 guest rooms, with room rates reportedly starting at $249 per night. Other amenities will include a spa, a celebrity chef restaurant, additional dining options, an updated casino, and a new porte cochere. The renovation project will involve addition of three more floors with the top floor centerpiece area involving a rooftop pool and a high-profile nightclub featuring panoramic views of the Strip.
The property upgrade will compliment Caesars Entertainment improvements associated with the ongoing Linq project in the general vicinity. Caesars Total Rewards players club points will reportedly be honored at the Gansevoort. The property is located across Las Vegas Boulevard from Caesars Palace and the Bellagio in the mid-Strip area.
