Tahoe’s newest hotel and casino, Hard Rock, hosts grand opening


EDIE:
BUSINESS, THE HARD ROCK
HOTEL AND CASINO WELCOMES NEWEST
VISITORS.
THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT
JOB,
IT IS BEAUTIFUL.
EDIE: THE NEW SOUTH LAKE
TAHOE
HARD ROCK COULD HAVE A RIG
IMPACT ON THE ECONOMY.
RICHARD: IN A ROCK ‘N
ROLL STYLE
WITH A TAHOE WINTER TWISTS.
THE TAHOE
HOTEL AND CASINO
OPENED TO THE PUBLIC.
I LIKE IT, THEY HAVE DONE A
GREAT JOB.
I THINK IT WILL BE A REAL BY
ASSET TO SOUTH SHORE.
THE HOTEL HAS 539 ROOMS,
RESTAURANTS, MUSIC VENUES, THE
BIGGEST OUTDOOR POOL IN SOUTH
LAKE, AND, OF COURSE, TONS OF
MUSIC MEMORABILIA.
BUT GETTING A 60 MILLION DOLLAR
RENOVATION DONE IN 6 MONTHS WAS
NOT EASY.
IF YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN ME THREE
DAYS AGO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU
KNOW WAY.
HERE WE ARE.
THEY DID IT WE PULLED IT OFF.
RICHARD: THE HARD ROCK’S TARGET
AUDIENCE IS 35 TO 50.
BUT HARD ROCK BELIEVES THEY’LL
ATTRACT MORE PEOPLE AND BOOST
THE LOCAL ECONOMY.
WE HELP THE MARKET. WE HARE
— BECAUSE INTERNATIONALLY AND
NATIONALLY, PEOPLE UNDERSTAND
WHAT A HARD ROCK BRAND IS.
IT WILL HELP SKI RESORTS.
RICHARD: THE CONSTRUCTION ALONE
EMPLOYED 700 PEOPLE, AND THE
STAFF TO RUN THE HOTEL AND
CASINO IS 500, JOBS THAT WILL BE
LOCAL.
THE LAKE TAHOE VISITORS
AUTHORITY BELIEVE THE HARD ROCK
IS HELPING TO REFRESH THE TAHOE
SOUTH BRAND.
THIS PROJECT RIGHT HERE
REPRESENTS ABOUT 60 MILLION
ACROSS THE STREET THERE IS ABOUT
DOLLARS.
20 MILLION IN MONT BLUE, WE HAVE
EDGEWOOD AT TAHOE BUILDING A NEW
LODGE NEXT YEAR.
RICHARD: LOCAL BELIEVE THAT
BRAND NAME WILL HELP BE VERY
POPULAR AND HELP BOOST THE
ECONOMY EVEN WHEN MOTHER NATURE
IS NOT CO-OPERATING.
IT BRINGS IN CONCERTS, BANDS,
BRINGS IN THE RIGHT DJ’S,
PARTIES ON THE BOWL, PARTIES ON
THE MOUNTAIN.
RICHARD: IS THIS A BIG ENOUGH
DRAW TO GET YOU TO COME BACK?
ABSOLUTELY.
JUST LOOKING AT THE RESTAURANTS
AND TYPES OF RESTAURANTS THEY
HAVE HERE, I THINK THEY WILL DO
VERY WELL.
RICHARD: IT IS NOT QUITE
FINISHED AND JUST OVER HALF THE
ROOMS ARE FINISHED.
PRICES FOR THE ROOM START AT
ABOUT $109 AND GO UP FROM THERE.
