The Westin Las Vegas Hotel, Casino & Spa announced that it is looking to ditch its “off-strip” resort label and simply be a hotel. Rooms at the property will be completely renovated to “Starwood” standard, a restaurant will be added, and the pool will be expanded. However, the 24 hour, six table and 150 slot machine casino will be closed due to a lack of revenue. The hotel first became a Starwood property in 2003 when it reopened as the Westin Casuarina, it is definitely in need of a renovation. Current prices often are not that much lower than nicer properties on the strip.
Starwood is also currently converting the SLS Vegas into the W Vegas.
