The 2,510-room Rio Las Vegas is to be renovated and rebranded under “multiple Hyatt full-service offerings”, under a multi-phase project announced by the hotel group.
Located around one mile west of the Las Vegas Strip, the complex is currently operated by Caesars Entertainment, and will undergo a redevelopment of its public spaces, including gaming, retail, food and beverage, spa and fitness, and pool recreation deck.
An existing tower will become a 1,501-room Hyatt Regency hotel, with rooms averaging 54 sqm, while the remainder of the property’s guestrooms is subsequently expected “to be branded or affiliated with one or more other Hyatt full-service brands after they are renovated”.
The combined hotels will offer over 20,000 sqm of meeting and function space.
The news follows last year’s announcement that Hilton will add three premium properties in Las Vegas next year, as part of the Resorts World Las Vegas development currently under construction on The Strip.
Commenting on the news Kimo Bertram, Hyatt’s vice president of real estate and development, said:
“We are thrilled that Dreamscape will help us bring multiple Hyatt full-service brands to Las Vegas, starting with a Hyatt Regency hotel, which we believe will deliver on the Hyatt Regency brand promise of creating meaningful connections in modern spaces designed for sharing, socializing, and collaborating.
“We know Las Vegas is an important destination for our guests, World of Hyatt members, and customers, and this project is a significant step for Hyatt as we continue to grow our brands in markets that matter most to our loyal travellers.”
