Hilton will add no less than three premium properties in Las Vegas next year, as part of the Resorts World Las Vegas development currently under construction on The Strip.
The $4.3 billion resort will be located on the site of the former Stardust Resort and Casino, and will feature three properties under the Hilton Hotels and Resorts, LXR and Conrad brands.
Together they will offer a total of 3,500 rooms, as well as facilities including a 20,450 sqm pool complex with “seven unique pool experiences”, a 5,000 capacity theatre, 32,500 sqm of meeting and events space, a spa and fitness centre, and an “extensive collection of casual and fine-dining food and beverage concepts”.
The group said that the project would bring back “the essence of The Las Vegas Hilton”, which was once the largest hotel in the world and which now operates as the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino.
Commenting on the news Ian Carter, president, global development, architecture, design and construction, Hilton, said:
“Our strategic partnership with Resorts World Las Vegas underscores Hilton’s commitment to expanding our footprint and portfolio of exceptional properties.
“This will mark our largest multi-brand deal in company history, and we are excited to work with our new partners to create a distinct hotel experience in an unbeatable location for our future guests and Hilton Honors members.”
Resorts World Las Vegas has been in the planning since 2013, and had originally been touted as a Chinese-themed development with attractions including a panda enclosure and replica of the Great Wall of China.
According to a recent report in the Las Vegas Review Journal, the theme has now been modified “to appeal to a broader audience”, offering a luxury experience “with Asian-inspired touches”.
