Claridge : Now With $20M More Urban Minimalism
The venerable and utterly charming as-is Claridge hotel is scheduled to get a $20 million dollar upgrade, turning the 1929 proto-Beaux Arts skyscraper into an "urban minimalist design" hotel.
On one hand, it's great to see Harrah's Entertainment dumping cash into upgrading Bally's and surrounding properties, but turning the Claridge into the AC equivalent of the Flamingo's "Go Rooms" seems like the wrong way to go, historically.
Why not restore the Claridge to its original glory and give folks a boutique and elegant art-deco Bellagio-by-the-Sea option?
More details from the AC Press.
Thanks to Dr. Dave for the tip off.
