On a late May morning, a dozen construction workers dressed in hard hats and neon vests are hustling back and forth along a section of Planet Hollywood’s seventh floor, putting the final touches on its renovation and moving out equipment.
Two floors above, the face-lift of 87 rooms has just finished. Members of the housekeeping team are carrying out a final check to make sure items like hangers and tissue boxes are in place before the rooms are reopened to the public.
By Thursday, rooms on these two floors will be back on the market, ending a nine-month project to renovate all of Planet Hollywood’s 2,496 rooms. The completion represents a major milestone for Caesars Entertainment Corp., which is staking its financial future on Las Vegas room upgrades.
