LAS VEGAS (AP) — A more than century-old downtown Las Vegas hotel is starting renovations it says will add contemporary flair to a place best known for poker chips, whisky and shrimp cocktail.

Golden Gate Hotel & Casino officials announced Monday the expansion will add a five-story building with 14 suites and two top-floor penthouses at the key Main Street and Fremont Street location.

Casino executives told the City Council last year that its $12 million overhaul would take several months.

The property dates to 1906. In recent decades, it carved a niche serving cheap shrimp cocktail.

The Golden Gate recently remodeled 106 rooms, and co-owner and chief executive Derek Stevens says in a statement that the expansion should help begin a new chapter for the historic property.
