Come summer, the Grand's casino floor and hotel rooms will be completely renovated, along with a face lift at its spa and pool. Across the street, a one of a kind outdoor amphitheater and green space will allow guests to take in the breath-taking views. Kennedy Smith, the Vice President of Marketing at the Grand Casino, says, "We believe in this market. This is a fantastic market for us. Not only do we have great employees and great players, but we believe there are some growth opportunities and our guests have been very loyal to us for quite some time, and we owe it to them and our staff, and we owe it to the community to continue to invest in our property." The Grand will also change its name to Harrah's Gulf Coast.
