Last week I saw that Riviera Hotel and Casino was being sold. Today on vitalvegas.com I saw that Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is buying Riviera with plans of demolition. Vitalvegas.com mentioned that the official announcement is still a few days off with an expected announcement at the sale on Feb. 17, 2015.
The Riviera Hotel and Casino has always been my favorite casino. I have a lot of good stories that came from staying there. I will miss this gem in the desert.
With my upcoming trip and stay booked at the Riviera next Saturday and Sunday, I will be paying close attention to the news next week.
