The Plaza Hotel and Casino in downtown Las Vegas is reopening after a $35 million renovation.

Hotel officials announced Wednesday the property will start accepting hotel guests Sept. 1, and the casino will reopen in August.

The extensive overhaul included a remodeled casino floor and lobby.

The 1,037-room hotel closed last November.

Many of the new marble floors, leather desk chairs and carpet accents were purchased from the multibillion-dollar Fontainebleau Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip. Work on that project has been suspended.

One year ago, suffering from the recession, the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas closed part of its casino and its 1,037 rooms.
