January 12, 2011 – Las Vegas, Nev. – The Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower announces the $26.5 million dollar reimagining of the iconic Las Vegas property. As the newly unveiled marketing campaign illustrates, the thrilling improvements can be seen up, down and all around the property.
At the centerpiece of the renovations is Stratosphere Select, the remodeling of 909 guestrooms, located on floors with upgraded elevator lobbies and corridors featuring marble floors, new carpeting and wall treatments. The rooms are beautifully redesigned with guest comfort in mind, featuring king and queen beds dressed with 240‐thread count sheets. Each room has a flat screen TV, and a newly updated bathroom with granite countertops, new tile and tub. The rooms’ bold colors, textures and details are a perfect compliment to the spectacular views of downtown Las Vegas, The Strip and the surrounding Las Vegas Valley.
But the upgrades don’t stop there. The hotel entrance has been overhauled to include valet parking directly off Las Vegas Boulevard and a sweeping indoor marble tile ramp that leads guests to a hip new VIP lounge, the hotel lobby, and the newly carpeted casino floor. Other changes on the casino floor include new modern colors and updated directional signs.
Dining has been reimagined, as well. Under the direction of Executive Chef Rick Giffen, the Buffet is sleek and interactive, with several live cooking stations in the works, and refreshed new surroundings. Roxy’s Diner, a longtime guest favorite, has been expanded to include a new menu and patio seating. Now open around the clock, Roxy’s singing and dining wait staff entertains during breakfast, lunch and dinner. The award‐winning Top of the World restaurant features an extraordinary new menu. And stylish lounges like Level 107 Lounge and Air Bar, the highest bar in Vegas, offer happy hours with a view you can’t get anywhere else.
While major renovations are complete, finishing touches on the property will continue through the first quarter of 2011. The Stratosphere’s transformation began in April 2010 with SkyJump Las Vegas, an addition that captured international attention. SkyJump Las Vegas provides the ultimate free fall from the 108th floor of the Stratosphere Tower, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip—the highest in the world.
Stratosphere Select and the other changes to the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower provide a combination of comfort, gaming, dining, nightlife, entertainment and thrills that continue to set it apart on the Las Vegas landscape. These changes offer an unexpected opportunity to elevate your expectations of an old Vegas friend. To reserve one of the Stratosphere Select rooms, visit StratosphereHotel.com or call 800‐99‐TOWER.
