Silverton Resort in Las Vegas closes to begin $45m renovation

The Silverton Casino Hotel in Las Vegas has closed its 300-room hotel and pool to begin work on a $45m renovation. Work will last at least five months, with the project expected to be finished in early 2023. The casino, restaurants, aquarium, Veil Pavilion, Johnny Rockets, Starbucks and Bass Pro Shops will remain open.

Guest rooms and suites will be transformed into “rustic-luxe” rooms with their “own design stories”. Some of the themes include Cowboy Kitsch Collection, Rustic Modern Collection, and Livin’ Lodge Collection. The move is inspired by sister property Hotel Drover, which opened in 2021.
