Caesars Entertainment has announced plans to open Caesars Republic Scottsdale, the corporation’s first non-gaming hotel in the United States.
Caesars Republic Scottsdale in Arizona will be located adjacent to the region’s premier luxury retail destination, Scottsdale Fashion Square, and will be a four-star hotel developed by HCW Development and operated by Aimbridge Hospitality.
Caesars Entertainment will license its brand, advise on design elements and integrate the loyalty network, Total Rewards.
“Caesars Republic Scottsdale represents the introduction of a new world-class brand and further progress on our strategy to expand our non-gaming business into premier destinations,” said Caesars Entertainment President and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Frissora. “This project will be our first non-gaming asset in the United States… We look forward to partnering with HCW Development and Aimbridge Hospitality to create a world-class experience in one of the nation’s most desirable communities.”
The 11-storey glass structure with 266 rooms will be developed at the intersection of North Goldwater and East Highland Avenue.
On the second floor, there will be five breakout rooms able to accommodate 40 people or opened out for events up to 200. The second-floor executive board room is capable of seating 16 at a permanent table.
Caesars Republic Scottsdale will house a 650sqm, column-free ballroom with 34-foot sliding glass doors which open out onto the adjacent lawn, suitable for outdoor events for up to 600 people. The ballroom is divisible into four sections and can accommodate banquets up to 500. The ballroom’s LED lighting system will allow event organisers to customise the look and feel of their event with the ability to change the ceiling colour. A 7th floor rooftop pool and bar will offer breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain.
The Scottsdale announcement follows the late 2018 opening of Caesars Entertainment’s two beachfront luxury resorts and beach club on Meraas’ Bluewaters Island in Dubai. Additionally, Caesars announced plans last year to develop a non-gaming Caesars Palace resort along the coast of Puerto Los Cabos, Mexico.
Caesars Entertainment Corporation properties now offer 2.1 million square feet of meeting space and 40,000 guest rooms.
