(Las Vegas, NV) — An aging property on the Vegas Strip is getting a renovation and a new name. Caesars Entertainment says the Imperial Palace hotel will become The Quad Resort and Casino, starting as early as November.
Interior and exterior renovations to the property are already under way. The renovations are scheduled to be completed in phases and will bring improvements to the exterior façade, porte cochere, front desk, bell desk, hotel lobby, casino floor, retail promenade and dining levels.
“As we renovate and modernize the property, it was only appropriate that we also update the name,” said Rick Mazer, the resort’s president. “This property has always been known as a hub of social activity, where anyone can come relax and have a good time. As we update our offerings we want to further enhance that feeling of fun and connectivity. We think the name, The Quad, really embodies those sentiments.”
Ralph Englestad purchased the old Flamingo Capri in 1971 and upgraded the property. It was renamed Imperial Palace in 1979. Caesars bought the property in 2005, three years after Englestad’s death.
