ATLANTIC CITY — The Coastal Tower at Harrah’s is getting a multimillion dollar facelift, with the first rooms and suites to be available next year.

Caesars Entertainment Corp., parent company of Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, announced plans for a $56 million renovation of 507 rooms and suites in the Coastal Tower to be completed in its entirety by summer 2019.

The project will be completed in phases, with the first phase scheduled for completion early next year.

“With world-class restaurants, Las-Vegas style nightlife, one of the East Coast’s preeminent conference centers, a first-class sports book, and A-list entertainment experiences, all under one roof, we are thrilled to continue to enhance our resort offering by upgrading our guestrooms and suites for our customers,” said Kevin Ortzman, regional president for Caesars Entertainment, Atlantic City Region. “Whether visiting for work or play, Harrah’s Resort offers something for everyone, within a singular resort destination.”

The renovated Coastal Tower rooms will “boast approximately 450-square-feet of space, will offer fresh design elements, similar in aesthetics to the resort’s Bayview rooms,” and are “hard-wired for business-minded travelers seeking to be constantly plugged-in,” with high-speed internet access, accessible charging stations and 55-inch LG LED televisions, according to the release.

The renovation project at Harrah’s is part of a $250 million investment the gaming and hospitality company has made in Atlantic City over the last four years, including the $125 million Waterfront Conference Center, more than $3 million in upgrades at the Pool After Dark nightclub and the recent debut of Gordon Ramsay Steak.

Caesars Entertainment also operates Bally’s Atlantic City and Caesars Atlantic City.
