Moab Hotel to close for $5M in renovations
The Moab hotel in Nevada will close for the first time in years as part of the renovations to the existing hotel and condominium complex, a hotel operator said Monday.
The Moaso-based Moab Holdings Corp. said in a statement that the hotel, which opened in 1975 and has about 1,600 rooms, will close after the construction of the new condominium project begins in mid-March.
The $5.8 million renovation is part of a $1.2 billion expansion of the complex that also includes a new building.
Moab owns the Moab Hotels & Resorts, the Moasol Hotel and the Moaviland Hotels.
The hotel was among five Moasos projects in Nevada that were completed last year.
The two other Moasols are the Reno Hotels and Casino, which closed in 2014, and the Las Vegas Hilton, which shut down in 2013.
In a statement, the hotel operator attributed the closure to the construction on the new condo project, which will include new kitchens, an expanded bar, new elevators and other upgrades.
The new condo development will also include a two-level rooftop pool, as well as a parking garage, Moab said.
The existing Moasopo-designed hotel, in the Nevada City area, was renovated by architect John F. Schlosser in 2009.
The property has a 1,900-room capacity and has two elevators, Moasow said.
Moasom said it expects to close at the end of June and begin a renovation in mid 2019.
The casino’s owner, Las Vegas Sands Corp., will also shut down the casino and resort in 2018.
The company plans to shut down its Las Vegas hotel and resort.
The casinos will remain open until 2040, and they will reopen for day-to-day business in 2022, Moash said.
It is not clear when the hotels will reopen.
