STATELINE, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The historic Horizon Hotel Casino -- a resort on Lake Tahoe's south shore opened as Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe in 1965 -- will become the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe, announced today.
“We are thrilled to bring a world-class brand to South Lake Tahoe, one that is sure to bring new energy and excitement to South Lake Tahoe’s entertainment district,” said David Park.
Owned by a subsidiary of the Park family of Park Family and Warner Hospitality, the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will undergo an approximately $60 million renovation and redesign. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will include two renovated hotel towers with over 500 hotel rooms, several new restaurants and bars, and a 25,000 square foot casino.
“The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino brand has music infused in its DNA and is known for celebrating individuality and uniqueness, which makes it a perfect fit for South Lake Tahoe,” said Jon Park.
In March, the Park family acquired the property formerly known as The Horizon and announced a partnership with Warner Hospitality. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino project in Lake Tahoe marks the company’s entry into the northern Nevada market.
