Almost a year ago, this Las Vegas gaming giant released plans for a new hotel. The twist is that it will not offer casino gambling. Work continues on the company’s first US non-gaming hotel. It will be known as Caesars Republic.
The design concept goes back almost three years. This will be a lifestyle hotel experience. There will be an added tinge of Las Vegas without the real money gambling aspect. This will draw on more than eight decades in the entertainment industry. The goal is to create experiences for guests staying at the hotel and resort.
Marco Roca is the president of global development for Caesars Entertainment . He referred to the project as a chance to “really express our 80 years of history of entertainment and creating experiences.” The hotel will be 11 stories high with 266 rooms. There will be a seventh-floor rooftop bar and pool area. It will overlook the Camelback Mountain. There will also be a 7000-square-foot ballroom.
