Caesars Entertainment plans to upgrade 5,700 rooms at four of its Las Vegas properties and three regional resorts this year.

The effort will transform 20% of its rooms in Vegas and 15% of company-wide rooms.

The four Vegas properties are the company’s flagship Caesars Palace as well as Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Paris Las Vegas, and Harrah’s Las Vegas. A total of 4,800 rooms in Vegas will get a makeover.

Rooms and suites will get modern designs, better in-room electronics including 50” TVs, new furnishings and refurbished bathrooms.

Caesars Atlantic City is expected to refresh 274 rooms. Harrah’s Gulf Coast in Biloxi, Miss., plans to renovate 499 rooms. And Horseshoe Tunica Robinsonville, Miss., will renovate 193 rooms.

The renovations at Caesars Palace will include transforming the property’s original 586-room tower into the Julius Tower. The existing 948-room Augustus Tower will also get a refurbishment.
