Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to open at Lake Tahoe

CREATED Jul 17, 2014

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- The managers of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas have announced plans to open one at Lake Tahoe this winter after a $60 million renovation of the former Horizon Casino Resort at Stateline.

Officials for the Las Vegas-based Warner Hospitality and the Tahoe-based Park family that owns the property said Thursday the 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 originally opened as Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe in 1965.

David Park says they are thrilled to bring a world-class brand to South Lake Tahoe's entertainment district.

The property will be operated by Don Marrandino, a casino executive who has worked for Harrah's and Caesars Entertainment in Nevada and Atlantic City.
