LAS VEGAS – The Aladdin hotel and casino has unveiled some new drawings for its upcoming transformation into a Planet Hollywood-themed resort by the end of next year.
The remodeling process is expected to begin in October and be executed in phases so that it will remain open throughout the renovation process.
The property was bought out of bankruptcy in 2003 and has long been criticized for its inaccessible design.
The casino will be completely redesigned with an ultramodern look and no distinct theme, the sketches show. The remodeling team includes Dougall Design Associates, Klai Juba Architects and M.J. Dean Construction Inc.
Dougall Design crafted the look for the Borgata resort in Atlantic City and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, while Klai Juba designed the new hotel tower at Mandalay Bay and the Hard Rock.
“We have the preeminent location on the Strip and … are prepared to deliver to Las Vegas the ultimate desination for entertainment, shopping and gaming,” resort co-Chairman Douglas Teitelbaum said in a statement.
This is one of the worst casino’s i have played at! It is supposably a “clasiic”, “going to stick around for a while”, casino. But although I have gotten my cashouts each time, they say 5-7 business days, AFTER the 7 days has come and gone I contact customer support via liveperson (this is one of the good features) most of the time i end up waiting for 20 minutes after i type in my question to even get an acknolegde that i am even there, then they always follow with “let me check your account” which aperently their computers are from the 1950’s because it takes them half an hour to access my account, then they almostalways reply with “your withdrawl will be processed by the end of the business day today, for sure”. well i do wait the day, then the next day (99% of the time wasnt processed) i contact them back. i wait the same 20 mins before they know I’m alive,, the same half hour to access my account, and then get the responce “your withdrawl will be processed b!y the end of the business day today, for sure”!!!! by the 3rd day i usually phone their 800# and when i talk to someone the usually say
“please contact us in a couple hours via liveperson”. Well i’m not gonna repeat it again but your know what happens when i contact them in a couple hours. By the 4th or 5th day SUPRIZE…… it gets processed. Then i have to wait 24-48 hours for the funds to get to my online account 🙁 . Since i started playing here I have cashed out a total of about 50 times, the first 5 or so went smoothly, but after that, there wasnt a single one that was processed on time.
