January 30, 2019 2:06pm
LAS VEGAS and MCLEAN, Va. – Hilton announces today that Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will join Curio Collection by Hilton in 2020, following an extensive transformation including renovations to the property. In collaboration with JC Hospitality LLC and Virgin Hotels, the hotel will be a reimagined, contemporary Las Vegas entertainment hub and participate in Hilton’s award-winning guest loyalty program, Hilton Honors.
Of the hotels within Hilton’s Collection Brands, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of Curio Collection by Hilton, will be the only property located in Las Vegas and the largest in the world with more than 1,500 guest rooms and over 110,000 square feet of meeting and events space. Featuring 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 favorably located minutes from the famed 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, located at 4455 Paradise Road, will continue full service operations as the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino until early 2020 when it closes briefly for the renovations that will transform it into the 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 newly remodeled pool at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas embodies the ambiance of a private island, with unique, intimate spaces and a variety of cabana experiences for retreating, or reveling, with new friends.
Once the property reopens, guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy many additional food and beverage options, including: Commons Club (Virgin Hotels’ flagship modern dining and social club concept) and The Shag Room, an intimate secret den welcoming visitors for cocktails.
The property, currently operating as Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, is owned by JC Hospitality LLC, and is the result of the vision of a group of investors led by Juniper Capital Partners and the Labourers International Union of North America (LiUNA) (investment managed by Fengate Real Asset Investments) along with their partners Dream, Cowie Capital Partners, Virgin and other private investors
“JC Hospitality is extremely proud to be investing in the Las Vegas market with amazing brands like Hilton and Virgin Hotels,” said Property President & CEO, Richard “Boz” Bosworth. “We couldn’t be more passionate about the project and this partnership, and look forward to the exciting journey ahead.”
The hotel adds to the ongoing success of the Curio Collection, with more than 65 hotels and resorts open and 59 hotels in the global pipeline. Opening all over the world, Curio Collection properties continue to provide guests with authentic, unique experiences that all types of travelers can enjoy.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will also be part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton's 16 distinct hotel brands.
