Resorts World Las Vegas Announces Hilton Partnership
In an eventful week, Resorts World Las Vegas, the $4.3 billion resort currently under construction on the Las Vegas Strip, announced a major partnership with Hilton.
Under the terms of the deal, the hospitality giant would bring three of its premium brands to the luxury integrated resort.
The recently signed partnership is the largest multi-brand deal in Hilton’s history. It includes the company’s Hilton Hotels & Resorts, LXR, and Conrad. Resorts World Las Vegas with its planned 3,500 rooms will also be part of Hilton’s guest-loyalty program Hilton Honors.
The program, which spreads across the hospitality group’s 18 brands, provides its members with direct access to a number of benefits for guests of Hilton properties, including flexible payment options, exclusive discounts, and Digital Key, among other things.
News about Resorts World Las Vegas’ partnership with Hilton emerge just days after the property announced that it has selected Konami Gaming as the exclusive gaming system management partner for its 110,000-square-foot casino.
That earlier partnership will see Resorts World Las Vegas utilize Konami’s SYNKROS gaming technology system that will enable the property to “streamline, manage, and optimize” its gaming operations by “converting meaningful data into actionable information.”
Resorts World Las Vegas is currently under development in the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip. The property is set to open doors in the summer of 2021.
Returning to the Strip
With the multi-brand deal, Resorts World Las Vegas and Hilton will mark the return of the Hilton brand to the Strip, which was once home to the iconic Las Vegas Hilton. The original Las Vegas Hilton hosted long-running residencies by Liberace and Elvis Presley. The property operated until 2012.
Commenting on the partnership, Scott Sibella, President at Resorts World Las Vegas, said that with their “commitment to redefining the luxury hotel standard in Las Vegas, it was only natural for us to partner with Hilton” and that their partner “embodies the values and top-level hospitality that align with Resorts World’s priority of bringing an unmatched guest experience to the Las Vegas market.”
Hilton President, Global Development, Architecture, Design & Construction Ian Carter added that “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.”
Aside from 3,500 hotel rooms in two towers, Resorts World Las Vegas’ facilities will also include a 110,000-square-foot casino, a 5,000-capacity theater that would host celebrity residencies and corporate events, a 220,000-square-foot pool complex with seven unique pool experiences, and a collection of casual of fine-dining food and beverage outlets, among others.
