The destination remodeled 84 suites with enhanced upgrades.

South Point hotel-casino has finished its $6m renovation project, according to a local report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The upgrade involved 84 suites on the destination’s 25th floor. Improvements included new flooring, furnishings and overall accommodations, the company said in a recent new release.

South Point began renovations last August. The group said the upgraded suites offer one to two bedrooms and include both living and dining areas that “can accommodate six people and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Strip, the mountains or the South Point’s pool.”

Suite sizes are available with up to square feet and the main living areas. Some feature sofa seating and a bar inside. The main suite bedrooms come with a walk-in closet, as well as a Roman tub in the bathroom, the resort said.

With the project reaching completion, guests can now stay in the newly updated resort that is located within seven miles of the Las Vegas Strip.

South Point is owned by Michael Gaughan and is home to one of Clark County’s largest gaming floors. The resort offers guests 2,100 rooms.

In other Vegas news, negotiations between Virgin Hotels Las Vegas and Culinary Union Local 226 are scheduled to resume this week after the Nevada labor union completed its 48-hour strike during the weekend.

More than 700 members of the state’s largest labor union recently walked off the job to pressure the resort to give the green light on a five-year contract regarding benefits and wages.

The current contract between the two expired nearly one year ago.

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
