Harrah's Hotel History
Harrah's Las Vegas is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The property is owned and operated by Harrah's Entertainment. Harrah's has over 1,200 slot machines.
The hotel offers 2,677 rooms with an attached casino providing 86,664 sq ft of space. The hotel consists of several towers, the tallest of which has 35 stories. The court yard entry houses a Ghirardelli Chocolate Company store.
There is a Las Vegas Monorail stop at the rear of the property, and a shuttle to the Harrah's-owned Rio.
The building opened in 1973 as the Holiday Casino. The front of the building was a steamboat motif. This caused some to confuse this casino with the off strip Showboat. The property was renamed Harrah's in 1992.
In 1997, Harrah's renovated the property, removing the old theme. They extended the 35 story tower by adding 986 rooms. Included in the renovations were six 22,000 lb 23-karat gold-leaf sculptures. Built from steel and glass reinforced polyester resin, the sculptures stand 32 ft high and wear size 43 shoes.
At the grand re-opening Harry Connick, Jr. entertained at the Carnival Court. Tino Wallenda, son of legendary tight-rope walker Karl Wallenda, walked 139 ft across a 1-inch steel cable, 99 ft above the ground. Celebrities also appeared included Sidney Poitier, Sandra Bullock, Minnie Driver, Stephen Baldwin, Lea Thompson, Mike Bergin, Dick Butkus and Steve Wynn and his wife, Elaine.
