The South Point Hotel Casino and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada, is to revamp accommodation throughout the property’s three towers in a $40m refurbishment scheme.

The upgrades, to more that 2,000 rooms and suites, will begin in April and are scheduled to be completed by September 2020.

The three-year project will refurbish one hotel tower at a time with guests paying more to stay in upgraded rooms.

Ryan Growney, the property’s general manager, said: “We live in a city that is continuously evolving, and we are always looking for opportunities to improve our guests’ experiences to set us apart from other properties.

“The last five years have consisted of a lot of exciting development projects that we strongly believe create a unique experience that only we can offer, and we are excited to unveil our new room upgrades, which we believe our guests will really enjoy.”

The news comes as Las Vegas police revealed it was seeking a woman who robbed the casino cage at South Point on Friday, February 19.

A cashier handed over an undisclosed sum to the woman, who appeared to be brandishing a handgun in security camera footage released by the police.
