At Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Caesars Entertainment has resumed daily gaming operations and hospitality operations for weekend stays.
This follows Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas and The LINQ Hotel + Experience ‘s successful reopening. The Company has also reopened The LINQ Promenade, High Roller Observation Wheel, FLY LINQ and Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck, as previously announced.
Senior Vice President and Planet Hollywood General Manager Jason Gregorec said: “We are overjoyed to welcome our loyal guests and dedicated team members back to Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the centerpiece of the famous Las Vegas Strip.
“Our guests can once again enjoy the unique experiences Planet Hollywood offers, as we continue to emphasize our enhanced health and safety protocols.”
With a show stopping dance number complete with paparazzi, the momentous reopening of Planet Hollywood was celebrated in true Hollywood fashion, taking the glamour of the resort back to the Strip.
Caesars Entertainment Regional President Gary Selesner and Jason Gregorec, Senior Vice President and Planet Hollywood General Manager, welcomed guests back and thanked members of the team for their hard work and dedication as they prepared to reopen the doors.
The Planet Hollywood brand, founded by Robert Earl, is known for its superstar entertainment, big movie premieres, celebrity guests from the A-list and more. In view of this, Anthony Anderson, a notable actor and producer of the hit TV show “Black-ish,” made a surprise appearance and joined Selesner and Gregorec in a countdown to the official reopening of the doors, which started with a show of confetti cannons and cheers. Anderson, who is a friend of Earl’s, said that when asked to participate in the reopening, he could only answer “yes” as he attended the property’s grand opening in 2007. Additionally, Bill Wagner, who ceremoniously rolled the first dice at a craps table, and Larry Garber, who played the first slot machine, were the first two casino guests to compete at Planet Hollywood.
The reopening also sees the introduction of the newly labelled William Hill Race & Sports Book with new customer deals including self-service sports betting kiosks and an improved LIVE InPlay Wagering betting menu.
In addition to the Las Vegas assets listed above, the resumption of business at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino follows the reopening of Caesars regional casinos and hotels around the country. In compliance with consumer demand, regulatory requirements and any other health and safety concerns, Caesars will open its remaining Las Vegas assets.
Caesars’ new health and safety protocols have been introduced by Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, which strengthens its current plans and activities in these areas. All Caesars properties concentrate on the well-being of members of the staff, visitors and the community and continue to work to build an atmosphere of high sanitization levels and activities of physical distance. More regular washing and sanitization are amongst the improved health and safety procedures. A health screening programme has also been introduced by Caesars for all workers. Crew members and visitors at all Caesars properties are expected to wear masks, which are made available by the company.
