Customers arriving at the Las Vegas Hilton are now met with scaffolding, drywall and a construction crew in the lobby as the 36-year-old property undergoes a makeover designed to make it look decades younger.

Construction walls at the rear of the casino feature photos of leggy models assuring visitors that the work going on behind the scenes "won't detour your fun." Another sign says, "Caution: Bright future ahead."

The Las Vegas Hilton, still months away from revealing its new self, has a lot to gain from the millions of dollars its new owners are plowing into the off-Strip hotel.

Colony Capital paid $280 million last year to buy the 59-acre Hilton site from Caesars Entertainment.

In a recent interview with In Business Las Vegas, a sister publication of the Las Vegas Sun, Resorts International Chief Operating Officer Roger Wagner called the Las Vegas Hilton "the buy of the century."
