The Rio Hotel & Casino is set to resume full time operations on April 19. The property has been open on a limited basis since January of this year, with the casino being open seven days a week but rooms only available to guests Thursday through Sundays. The hotel will be the last of Caesars Entertainment owned properties to resume 24/7 operations. Caesars announced two weeks ago that it has entered into a partnership with Hyatt to renovate and rebrand the Rio. The project is expected to take a couple of years and the hotel will still be called the Rio when renovations are complete in 2023.
