Casino Aztar Announces Renovation

According to a press release from Stacey McNeill, Casino Aztar Director of Marketing…

Casino Aztar announces a full renovation of the Casino Aztar Hotel with plans to make approximately $5 million in improvements. This will be the first renovation for the hotel since it was built 15 years ago.

Casino Aztar General Manager, Ward Shaw said, “There won’t be a spot untouched in this renovation. It will be a different experience than our more contemporary Le Merigot hotel, however. The Aztar will remain more of a grand traditional-style that so many of our customers have enjoyed over the years, but it will get the fresh look that will dramatically improve the comfort and overall enjoyment of our guests we attract from around the region and the country.”

All 251 guest rooms will be dramatically transformed with new wall coverings, carpet, furniture, bedding, and televisions, along with renovated bathrooms. The exterior of the hotel will also be repainted. This is the largest single capital investment Casino Aztar has made in the property since The District at Casino Aztar was built in 2006, and the largest ever by the new Tropicana Entertainment, Inc. ownership group.

Other recent property improvements include the opening of the second pedestrian sky bridge connecting the Le Merigot hotel to the casino, new carpeting throughout the casino and renovations to casino restrooms. This year, Aztar also plans to install 2 million dollars worth of new slot games.

Most recently, the Riverview Coffee Company, located in the Riverfront Pavilion switched to serving Starbucks® Coffee and is the only Starbucks retailer in the downtown area. The coffee shop is open daily at 7AM.
