Freshly-appointed, modern bathrooms will offer oversized showers, while select rooms will additionally offer luxurious baths and signature amenities.
Hard-wired for business-minded travelers seeking to be constantly plugged-in, all Bayview 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 tech-ready rooms will offer close proximity to The Waterfront Conference Center, which was recently awarded with a prestigious LEED Silver certification, the green standard for sustainable design.

"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 and nightlife and its new Waterfront Conference Center, the East Coast's largest and most state-of-the-art meetings and event facility of its kind.
The project is on schedule to be completed by summer 2017.
