LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas will undergo an extensive, $1.5 billion renovation, described as the largest and most expensive in its 25-year history.

A comprehensive rebranding is underway for the 4,000 suites in The Venetian's towers and the convention center, the resort announced Wednesday.

"The Venetian Resort’s innovative spirit has had a massive impact on Las Vegas over the last 25 years and paved the way for our visionary $1.5 billion reinvestment today," Patrick Nichols, Venetian Resort president and CEO, said in a statement.

New suite designs are inspired by the costumes of the Venetian Carnival, "infusing energy, spirit and warmth in a contemporary, fresh design," according to the announcement. Suites will become available for stays later this September.

Executives say they will invest $188 million to renovate the convention center, adding a new color palette and luxury lounge spaces. This redesign is scheduled to begin in the summer.

New restaurants are also expected to be added, with more details to be announced later this year.

Apollo Global Management currently operates The Venetian.
