Virgin Hotels will open its latest US property early next year, with the renovation and rebranding of the former Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
The hotel – which will also become part of Hilton’s Curio Collection when it opens on January 15 – is located on the corner of Harmon and Paradise Road, around one mile east of The Strip.
The hotel will offer over 1,500 “Chambers” (rooms) and suites across three towers, as well as no less than 12 food and beverage options including One Steakhouse by brothers David and Michael Morton, Olives by celebrity chef Todd English, Casa Calavera by the Hakkasan Group, Kassi Beach Club from restauranteur Nick Mathers, and signature Virgin Hotels brands The Kitchen at Commons Club, The Bar at Commons Club, The Shag Room and Funny Library Coffee Shop.
Sports and entertainment venue Money, Baby! will feature a patio overlooking a new resort pool, which is scheduled to open in March, and there will be an Events Lawn for “one-of-a-kind functions including concerts, private events, and a space for guests to engage in resort activations”.
The hotel will also comprise the Mohegan Sun Casino, operated by Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment.
Virgin Hotels opened its first property in Chicago in 2015, before adding hotels in San Francisco in early 2019, Dallas late last year, and Nashville this summer.
However the owner of the San Francisco hotel served notice to terminate the management agreement with Virgin Hotels earlier this year, and it is no longer listed on the group’s website.
