Virgin Hotels and Hilton have announced that Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will join the Curio Collection by Hilton in 2020, following an extensive transformation.
In collaboration with JC LLC and Virgin Hotels, the hotel will be a reimagined, contemporary Las Vegas entertainment hub and participate in Hilton’s award-winning guest loyalty programme, Hilton Honors.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will be the only hotel within Hilton’s Collection Brands located in Las Vegas – and it will be the largest collection hotel in the world with more than 1,500 rooms and more than 110,000 square feet of meeting and events space. With a fun, yet sophisticated desert modern vibe that reflects the surrounding landscape, the property will provide visitors with comfortably designed guest chambers and beautifully reimagined pool areas, all located just minutes from the famous Las Vegas Strip.
“We’re thrilled to announce the signing of a Curio Collection hotel in one of America’s most famed cities along with JC Hospitality LLC and Virgin Hotels,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “In its 100th year, Hilton continues to innovate the hotel and guest experience with its distinctive Collection Brands. Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will reflect a new take on what it means to be a Las Vegas hotel and provide guests and locals alike a one-of-a-kind experience.”
The property will continue full service operations as the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino until early 2020 when it will close briefly for the renovations that will transform it into Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will serve those visiting the city as a destination in close proximity to nearby nightlife for evenings out on the strip. For those looking to remain onsite as well as for locals, the hotel boasts eclectic bars, tasty restaurants, a best-in-class casino, fitness facilities and spa, and live entertainment venue The Joint.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Hilton guests who want a premium lifestyle hotel experience in Las Vegas,” said Raul Leal, Virgin Hotels CEO. “Whether traveling for leisure or in town to attend a conference or convention, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will be an experience that is dedicated to delivering the best in design, entertainment, heartfelt service and culinary excellence.”
The new pool at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will embody the ambience of a private island, with unique, intimate spaces and a variety of cabana experiences for retreating or revelling with new friends.
Virgin Hotels will introduce the Commons Club to Las Vegas, its flagship modern dining and social club concept, as well as bringing The Shag Room, an intimate secret den welcoming visitors for cocktails, to the hotel.
