Heads Traveling to Las Vegas: Hard City Hotel and Casino Will Be Closed in Eight Months, Starting 2020 for renovation, according to numerous reports.
The hotel previously announced plans to close a four-month renovation period to be remodeled and rebranded as the Virgin Hotel after being purchased last year. But KTNV and the Las Vegas Review-Journal report that the upgrade process will be shut down for all repairs.
"We have decided that a phased four-month shutdown followed by a four-month full shutdown is not effective in the construction process, nor can we provide the hotel service that our guests deserve," said the president and CEO to JC Hospitality by Richard Bosworth
"Therefore, an approximate eight-month closure would be most effective and would ensure a timely opening before January 2021," he added.
USA TODAY contacted Hard Rock and Virgin Hotel for comment.
The Review Journal reports that the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino will close after the Super Bowl on February 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Before closing, Hard Rock guests can see performances by Brian Wilson and The Zombies, Cake & Ben Folds, Greta Van Fleet, Daughtry, Stone Temple Pilots and comedian Demetri Martin.
