ATLANTIC CITY — Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City is planning a $30 million renovation of its guest rooms and suites, which is expected to be completed before summer.

Harrah’s Resort will re-design and enhance 450 guest-rooms and suites in its Bayview Tower, partnering with Las Vegas-based design firm Marnell Companies.

The upgrades are part of parent company Caesars Entertainment’s total investment of $200 million into its city properties, which includes future enhancements to The Pool After Dark, the resort’s fitness center and food court, the company said.

During the first two quarters of the year, Harrah’s ranked second to fellow marina district property Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in gross profit.

Through June, Harrah’s gross profits where $30.4 million, compared to nearly $58.4 million at Borgata.

The improvements come a year after the resort opened the $126 million Waterfront Conference Center. The project increased meeting space by approximately 125,000 square feet.

“With world-class restaurants, Las-Vegas style nightlife and A-list entertainment experiences, all under one roof, along with the recent addition of our new, Waterfront Conference Center, we are thrilled to continue to enhance our resort offering by upgrading our guestrooms and suites for our customers,” said Rick Mazer, president of Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, in a statement.

When completed the 600-square-foot rooms will feature contemporary furniture and technology upgrades, the company said.
