Caesars Entertainment Investing $56 Miillion for Renovation of Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City Coastal Tower

USA, Atlantic City, New Jersey. November 22, 2018

Harrah's Resort Atlantic City announced today plans for a $56 million guest room and suite renovation in its Coastal Tower, featuring 507 finely-appointed guest-rooms & suites, to be completed in its entirety by summer 2019. The room and suite upgrades are part of Caesars Entertainment's total investment of over $250 million into its Atlantic City casino-resorts over the last four years, which includes the $125 million Waterfront Conference Center, the revamped Pool After Dark nightclub, and the recent debut of Gordon Ramsay Steak, the seven-Michelin star chef and television personality's first steakhouse concept in the tri-state area.

Harrah's Resort will re-design and enhance 507 guest-rooms and suites in the current Harbour Tower to curate the in-room guest experience. Coastal rooms, which will boast approximately 450-square-feet of space, will offer fresh design elements, similar in aesthetics to the resort's Bayview rooms.

Hard-wired for business-minded travelers seeking to be constantly plugged-in, all Coastal rooms and suites will be technology-rich with high-speed internet access and accessible charging stations, in addition to featuring 55-inch LG LED televisions. The tower is conveniently situated steps away from hotel check-in, the casino, and Harrah's new, best-in-class sports book facility, The Book.

"With world-class restaurants, Las-Vegas style nightlife, one of the East Coast's preeminent conference centers, a first-class sports book, and A-list entertainment experiences, all under one roof, we are thrilled to continue to enhance our resort offering by upgrading our guestrooms and suites for our customers," explained Kevin Ortzman, Regional President for Caesars Entertainment, Atlantic City Region. "Whether visiting for work or play, Harrah's Resort offers something for everyone, within a singular resort destination."

The upgraded rooms and suites will further complement the resort's destination-appeal among business and leisure travelers alike, enhancing Harrah's profile of first-class dining, entertainment, sports betting, nightlife and The Waterfront Conference Center, the East Coast's largest and most state-of-the-art meetings and event facility of its kind.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
