VALLEY CENTER, Calif. (March 29, 2016) - The results are in - Harrah's Resort Southern California has been named "Best San Diego Hotel" by Los Angeles Magazine readers in the magazine's first-ever Readers' Choice Travel Awards. The award winners were announced in the March issue of the magazine and runners up included Hotel Del Coronado, Fairmont Grand Del Mar , Four Seasons Aviara and L'Auberge Del Mar.
"We are thrilled to be the favorite place for Los Angeles Magazine readers to stay and play in San Diego and want to thank our guests for choosing Harrah's Resort Southern California," said Janet Beronio, regional president for Caesars Entertainment and general manager of Harrah's Resort Southern California. "It is quite the honor to receive this accolade and we cannot wait to show Angelenos what we have in store next."
Following the property's $160 million multi-phase renovation and re-launch in 2014, the resort has spent the past several months focusing on resort programming that caters to business travelers, leisure travelers, couples, groups and loyal gaming guests. Physically, the resort has opened two new bars in the past two years - Corked and Spiked - among adding to its dining options as well as building an entirely new Events Center that offers year-round entertainment including concerts to comedy shows and events. In addition, the renovation included all hotel rooms and the addition of an all-new resort tower, bringing the room count to 1,065 rooms, including 152 suites. Harrah's also features a trifecta of pools including a 400-foot lazy river and Southern California's only swim-up bar.
The next phase of renovations will commence this year and will include the opening of Robek's, offering fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies, as well as an entirely new Fitness Center.
