Adding a modern twist to the medieval flair for which Excalibur Hotel & Casino is known, the hotel is remodeling 1,995 guest rooms and suites in its newly renamed Royal Tower.

Vibrant accents and splashes of color match the energy and atmosphere of Excalibur. The upgraded accommodations feature a completely smoke-free experience, new carpeting and bedding, modern furnishings and 40-inch flat-screen TVs.

“The remodeled guest rooms and suites embody the fun and colorful personality of Excalibur and the type of experience we want our guests to have during their stay,” said Ann Hoff, general manager of Excalibur.

Excalibur has a total of 3,981 rooms and 41 suites ranging from the Resort Tower King to the newly remodeled Royal Luxury Suite.

With a selection of remodeled rooms now available for reservation, the overall project is scheduled for completion in April 2016. Rooms can be reserved by calling 800-879-1379 or visiting the newly relaunched excalibur.com.

Along with the remodeled rooms, Excalibur will kick off spring with a refreshed pool deck including new dining areas, cabanas, furnishings and surfaces, providing guests with an enhanced experience and direct access from the newly renamed Resort Tower. Adults 18 years and older will enjoy a private oasis complete with additional amenities, pool and cabana space.

Adding to the hotel’s enhancements, The Buffet at Excalibur recently underwent a complete redesign. Its contemporary dining room features an interactive dessert station and six food stations offering a variety of cultural cuisines, including American, Asian, Italian and Latin.
