Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is undergoing a $13 million property-wide renovation. Improvements include a complete redesign of the Borgata Buffet, renovations to Spa Toccare, the casino floor, front desk, Borgata suites, and back-of-the-house talent areas.
Completed at the end of 2014 was the redesign of the Borgata Buffet, with $2 million spent on porcelain stone flooring, as well as resurfaced sky-like ceilings, all by Avenue Interior Design. Featuring a color scheme of whites, taupe, and grey tones, the space is now highlighted by the architectural details. The carpeting offers a new take on a traditional Italian fresco, while the vertical surfaces received a textured, patterned-wall covering paired with a conventional sconce to give the buffet a residential feel.
Spa Toccare will experience an update to both its men's and women's lounges, as well as a complete revamp of its workout facility, the Pump Room, adding new Life Fitness cardio equipment including nine treadmills, six cross-training ellipticals, two Powermill stepping machines, two recumbent bicycles, two lifestyle (spin) bicycles and one upright bicycle.
These updates come at the heels of a $1-million makeover that included enhancements to Spa Toccare's 27 treatment rooms, complete with new massage tables and a redecorating of carpets, wall treatments, lighting, cabinets and linens. Borgata also renovated the staff’s changing areas and restrooms located in the back-of-the house areas.
The evolution of Borgata's guestrooms began in 2012 with a complete $50-million redesign to all 1,566 Classic guestrooms and hotel corridors, and continues this 2015 with an additional $6 million dedicated to restyle 39 Opus suites in addition to two 5,000-square-foot Residence suites. Borgata partnered with interior design firm Laurence Lee Associates for the redesign of the suites.
When all upgrades are finished, guests will be greeted by a redesigned lobby with a complete resurfacing of the front desk, a brand new ceiling, and the unveiling of an exclusive art piece located behind the check-in area. Additional refashions to give the casino floor a more modern Italian feel will be comprised of new carpeting, wall treatments, ceiling drapery, and light fixtures, in addition to the refinishing of columns, accounting for over $4 million in capital spend.
There is also a plan to build an outdoor entertainment venue to host concerts and festivals, along with plans to construct a new nightclub later this year.
