The 2,163-room South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas has embarked on a $40 million project to renovate all of its guest rooms and suites. The first phase of the project kicks off next month with Tower 1, with the first 100 redesigned rooms available beginning in May. All rooms in that tower should be upgraded by September 2018; the complete project is expected to wrap up two years later, in September 2020.
 
"We live in a city that is continuously evolving," said general manager Ryan Growney, "and we are always looking for opportunities to improve our guests' experiences to set us apart from other properties."
 
Plans for the phased redesign call for one each of the resort's three towers to be completed per year. By the end of this year, 630 redesigned rooms should be available for a $10 upgraded-room fee. Among the improvements will be new Bernhardt furniture, such as beds, dressers, nightstands, chairs, tables and lounge chairs, as well as new lamps with USB ports, more functional desks and a brand-new color palette with a more modern design.
 
Over the past five years, South Point has made a number of improvements throughout the property, including more than $500,000 in upgrades to the the Costa del Sur Spa and Salon. Additional projects include the construction of a multimillion-dollar professional-bowling tournament plaza, in partnership with the United States Bowling Congress, as well as improvements to the Priefert Pavilion, with two new climate-controlled indoor equestrian arenas that will offer an additional 100,000 square feet of competition space. Among numerous other enhancements are a refurbished lounge, a new restaurant and new digital display boards.
