Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A long standing Las Vegas gaming property is slated to close Monday to make way for its conversion into a boutique hotel.

Bill's Gambling Hall and Saloon scheduled its closure in stages on Monday.

The Caesars-owned property posted on its Facebook page that guests would have to check out by 10 a.m., with some leaving by 12 noon.

The property's dining options were also slated to close about that time. Bill's also said all gaming and slot play were expected to end at 12 noon.

The property referred to neighboring Flamingo Hotel and Casino for nearby gaming and dining.

Caesars Entertainment announced last year its plans to renovate Bill's, which opened in 1979 as the Barbary Coast Hotel and Casino, as a boutique hotel and casino.

Caesars slated opening for the revamped hotel under a new name for early 2014. Caesars also projected about 1,000 people will be hired for the renovated property.
