Westgate Las Vegas is set to reopen its doors on June 18 and has vowed to be the ‘safest and brightest’ resort in Las Vegas.
The property which launched as the International in 1969 will be offering designed ‘mask-required’ tables and elevators.
By setting up the mandatory ‘mask-required’ tables, Resort owner David Siegel, COO Mark Waltrip, and General Manager Cami Christensen are accepting a possible lapse in finance. The reopening of the casinos is still on the early stages and for guests who have ignored the wearing of masks directive, they might be ejected from Westgate Las Vegas to play elsewhere.
‘Guests and employees to feel confident’
The resort has ensured that it gives its utmost priority to protect its employees in the wake of some Las Vegas casino workers raising concerns over their safety.
David Siegel has made sure that the staff and guests feel confident while returning to the premise. Asked how he felt about welcoming people back on Thursday, he said that they would be the ‘safest’ resort in Vegas. The hotel’s official page has set out extensive safety protocols that they have laid out.
Christensen, on the other hand, also expressed her excitement of welcoming employees and guests and stated that they would provide a safe environment. Cami has worked with the property since 2001.
The employees will also be required to wear masks too and for ease of identification with the guests, the employee masks will have their smiling portraits. This includes the GM who also has a Las Vegas Raiders mask.
Superbook upgrade and more reopenings
As the property reopens, guests will also be welcomed to an upgraded Superbook. The 240 by 20 ft., 4,488 sq. ft. HD video layout has been replaced with screens that are 25% brighter. The ticker at the bottom has also been made bigger.
Sid’s Café Space is also being revamped to be a new restaurant. Other amenities that will be reopening on Thursday include; iBar, Superbook bar, the wedding chapel, food court, pool, retail shops, and Fortuna coffee annex. Valet service will not be opened.
Guests can also expect performances from the iconic Barry Manilow, Jennifer Romas, Jen Kramer, George Wallace, Dollface Rock band, among others.
On the weekend nights and the reopening day night, iBar stage will host live performers entertaining the guests. Dollface will kick off the performances by playing at the opening event on Thursday. Pointers are there that they might also perform on the weekend should everything go well.
On the reopening day, a temporary wall will be available in the lobby where guests can sign to mark the reopening of the hotel. To add icing to the cake, Sir Winston of Westgate, the hotel’s canine mascot, will arrive in one of the hotel’s limos. His marketing blitz has always been appreciated at the hotel.
