SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — Caesars Entertainment gets into the non-gaming hotel business with plans to open an 11-story hotel in Scottsdale. The casino giant created Caesars Republic to handle non-gaming properties, and partnered with Aimbridge Hospitality on the 266-room hotel located near Scottsdale Fashion Square. The hotel, which breaks ground later this year, plans to feature a rooftop pool and bar looking out at Camelback Mountain with weekend brunches. Caesars also has a non-gaming Caesars Palace resort opening along the coast of Puerto Los Cabos, Mexico. [EaterWire]
