Caesars to transform Harrah’s New Orleans into Caesars New Orleans

| By Conor Mulheir
Caesars Entertainment has shared plans to invest $325m, transforming its existing Harrah’s New Orleans casino property into the rebranded and renovated Caesars New Orleans.

The project was presented to the New Orleans Building Corporation yesterday (December 8) and is expected to be completed by 2024.

Plans for the renovation include a new 340-room tower about the casino’s existing valet porte cochère, new culinary and hospitality offerings, additional development of a currently unoccupied area on the casino’s second floor, and full exterior and interior architectural and design renovation.

“We are excited to introduce Caesars New Orleans to the city,” said Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “As the only land-based gaming operator in the city, we take great pride in our 20-year history in New Orleans, and this reinvestment is a testament to our continued commitment.”

Additional details on the venue’s new offerings will be released in the coming months, subject to City and Louisiana Gaming Control Board approval.
