Construction continues at a steady pace on the Caesars Entertainment property on the northeast corner of Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard. The resort, formerly known as Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall, has not been given an official name yet, but rumored names floating around include The Cromwell and The Ilyse.
The property, which ended an earlier partnership with Gansevoort Hotel Group, is scheduled to open in mid-2014 and will be a boutique hotel with 188 rooms, a 65,000-square-foot rooftop pool experience by nightlife visionary Victor Drai and a restaurant by celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis, who will open her first venture at the property.
Her restaurant, called Giada, will feature al fresco dining with views of the Strip and the Bellagio fountains. The cuisine will embrace her passion for Italian cooking with lighter California influences.
