Hot spots can be a boon to travelers but they can also be a source of stress, so the resort chain Hot Spot Las Vegas is trying to make sure its guests are comfortable.
Hot Spot’s parent company, Las Vegas Sands Corp., said Thursday that it will shut its resort for six weeks this summer to ensure its employees are well-rested and to minimize the number of visitors.
Hot Spot’s employees will return to work Aug. 31, said Lisa Miller, the company’s president and CEO.
Miller said the company will work with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services to ensure workers are getting the necessary health care.
Hot Spots is one of the largest resort chains in the United States.
Miller said the resort has the largest staff in the country.
The resort opened in 1971 and currently has more than 6,000 rooms.
Miller told CBC News Hot Spot will close at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 3, the same day as its busiest day, when it has more people than usual.
Hot spots are not the only ones that have shut their doors.
The resort chain the Four Seasons also is closing its doors for six months this summer.
In July, the Four Season shut its doors to make way for the expansion of a hotel and restaurant on the property.
HotSpot’s management team is looking to help employees prepare for their upcoming vacation.
The company said in a statement to CBC News that its employees will be working on their plans to minimize stress.
“We know that this is a challenging time for everyone,” Miller said.
“We are taking these measures to give our employees the most opportunity to enjoy the unique and unforgettable experience they’ve come to know and love.
We are working with our employees to develop ways to support them in the process.”
Miller said Hot Spot plans to offer more flexible and flexible work hours for employees.
