Plaza Hotel & Casino
The fully renovated rooftop pool and recreation deck at the Plaza Hotel & Casino that opened July 4th weekend last year to rave reviews has even more to offer guests this summer with an additional $25,000 upgrade to its furnishings, a $300,000 renovation to five hotel suites with direct access to the pool deck, and various special events, including a Hawaiian Luau and the debut of “Plaza Pool Nights.”
Maintaining its “retro Palm Springs-meets classic downtown Las Vegas” inspired feel, the Pool at the Plaza upgraded its resort style furnishings for the 2017 pool season, including adding cocktail side tables beside its lounge chairs, new wet deck lounge chairs and more dining tables, chairs and umbrellas. All six day beds were re-upholstered with a vibrant green fabric.
The Plaza has five hotel suites that open directly onto the pool deck, offering guests an exclusive amenity during their stay. A complete renovation brings the pool’s vintage Palms Springs feel inside the suites with décor that mixes contemporary and mid-century furnishings. Taking inspiration from the pool and the outdoor space’s materials and color palette, the renovated suites incorporate warm wood tones and mixed metals with bold colors and graphics.
The suites also feature custom cabinetry, new floorings, custom lighting fixtures and casual, relaxing furnishings with luxurious touches throughout. Bathrooms are completely upgraded with custom vanities, quartz counters and a special blend of dimensional and glass mosaic tiles to give the bathroom the ultimate vacation feel. Beginning at the end of May and starting at $200 per night, the suites can be booked for summer stays online at https://www.plazahotelcasino.com/reservations/. This summer, the Pool at the Plaza is home to various entertainment and special events. The schedule of events kicks off on Saturday, May 20 at 7 p.m. with a special luau beach party featuring live entertainment and authentic Hawaiian food and drinks. Tickets are $40 (including taxes and gratuity) and available online at http://www.plazahotelcasino.com/entertainment/luau-beach-party/. Every Saturday night this summer beginning May 6, the Plaza will host “Plaza Pool Nights,” a free night swim party with a DJ and drink and food specials from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. And to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and one-year anniversary of the Pool at the Plaza, the property will again host a special rooftop party and live fireworks show. More details on events and amenities at the Pool at the Plaza this summer are available online.
