EASTSIDEThe Majestic plans to start construction in July on a luxury hotel with 720 suites and six restaurants situated around a piazza with fountains and live entertainment. The hotel, developed by Lorenzo Doumani, takes over the former Clarion site, also formerly the Debbie Reynolds Hotel, on Convention Center Drive, two blocks from the Strip and across from the expanded Las Vegas Convention Center. The resort will not have gaming and will be nonsmoking. The $850 million project on 6.1 acres plans to open in 2024. [TravelPulse]

MGM RESORTS — The company furloughed 140 managerial staff members, effective on Monday, citing reduced business levels and state restrictions on capacity during the coronavirus pandemic. “We are focused on bringing employees back to work when business levels recover,” a spokesperson says in a press statement. “We are optimistic that, with vaccine distribution and other developments, we will return to higher business levels and staffing soon.” Furloughed staff will remain on the company’s health-care plan and continue to have access to employee resources and training, as well as have access to the company’s employee grant fund.

NEW YORK-NEW YORK — The resort temporarily closed Nine Fine Irishmen and Broadway Burger Bar & Grill. “All of our properties are managing operations with an eye on business levels, including adjusting hours and closing certain venues for periods of time,” a spokesperson for the resort says. New York-New York was one of the first casinos to reopen on June 4 after the state closed nonessential businesses for 78 days to prevent the spread of COVID-19. [EaterWire]
