ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — One of Atlantic City's top casinos is getting a $30 million makeover.

Harrah's tells The Associated Press it's redoing 450 rooms and suites in the casino's Bayview Tower.

The work will begin in mid-November and should be finished by Memorial Day weekend in 2017.

Parent company Caesars Entertainment is spending $200 million on projects at Harrah's, including the recently opened Waterfront Conference Center, and improvements to The Pool After Dark, its fitness center and food court.

The newly redone rooms are close to the conference center, which Harrah's president Rick Mazur says is helping drive new business to Atlantic City.
