Does anyone know if the work ever started on the hotel? I was wondering how it was progressing.

Thank you

Hi, VegasSue.

I drive past a few times a week and I've not really noticed any work started. The plastic that they wrapped it in last fall is starting to tatter and rip from the weather...so one day I thought that they had ripped it open to work, but my husband enlightened me to the fact that half the building was ripped due to the weather (I'm not always the most observant...)

The crane that they installed last year is still there, but it's never moved since they shut down construction of the facility.

The other hotels in the area are taking full advantage. It's really helping their numbers...I wonder what their occupancy rates will do once the hotel on site is open...

Hi MrsKruse,

I was hoping they had restarted work. I wonder if they may have had to reapply for certain permits (due to expiration?) . It seems odd because Sands made the announcement to restart the project in a few weeks in the beginning of March.

Hopefully, they will start soon. Thanks for the update.

Work re-started last Monday.

The Express Times has done a far better job than The Morning Call on reporting about the Sands and following any new developments.

Yup, they are working! They have about 8 cut outs on the back side of the hotel, and an entire panel removed on the front...and equipment on the ground...woohoo, work commences!

But beware Forum persons.There is a person called dbljoker spreading rumors on the A/C forum that work has been halted on the Hotel due to Bed-Bugs and that some Busses are bringing these Bugs in.

There ought to be something to stop this person from these remarks about this Wonderful Casino/Hotel!

Well, that's a pretty funny idea - bed bugs coming in on busses delaying a hotel being built. No beds or bedding in it, mind you....

Yes mind you now,that a joker would start a rumor like that on another Forum because he happens to go to A/C once or twice a year and has NO use for Pa. Casinos.

Not a Funny idea any way you look at it.!!!
