Old Lake Tahoe hotel to become a Hard Rock

An older Lake Tahoe, Nev., hotel will soon be converted to a Hard Rock Hotel after a $60-million renovation of the former Horizon Casino Resort.

Officials for Las Vegas-based Warner Hospitality and the Tahoe-based Park family that owns the property say Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will include more than 500 hotel rooms and a 25,000-square-foot casino.

The resort on the lake's south shore next to Edgewood Golf Course originally opened as Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe in 1965, reports Fox News.
