The Aquarius is doing a $20 million room renovation that is scheduled for completion by May. The 1,907 rooms, which include 30 executive suites and 60 junior executive suites, are being completely transformed from the furniture and bathrooms to carpets and case goods, and even the hallways. Two floors are being taken out of service at a time with the Arizona Tower getting the makeover first followed by the California Tower.
The interior designer is Leo A. Daly, who has a ranking of third best "Top Designers / Architects" by Hotel Business magazine and clients ranging from Pueblo Sandia Casino in New Mexico to the White Pond Resort and Training Center in China.
The room renovations will include installing new 32" LCD flat panel televisions, lounge chairs, ottomans, designer lamps, TV chests, artwork, wall coverings, designer carpets and drapes. The bathrooms will be enhanced with cherry wood vanities with granite countertops, designer sinks and accessories.
Another addition that is becoming a current reality is the opening of a new full-blown Starbucks outlet adjacent to the gift shop and VIP lounge near the front lobby.
