What to Expect:
Despite the setback of the pandemic, the ever-changing skyline of Las Vegas has continued to adjust with the construction and debut of some notable new hotels.
Circa Resort and Casino opened in October 2020 on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The massive 1.25-million-square-foot property contains the world’s largest sportsbook with a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen. Other impressive attributes include Nevada’s longest indoor bar and a multi-level complex with six pools and two spas. The hotel offers 777 fashionable guest rooms and suites.
Resorts World is next in line and is expected to open in the summer of 2021. Located toward the north end of the strip, opposite The Wynn, the 88-acre property of Resorts World will be three hotels in one due to its partnerships with Hilton, Conrad, and the Crockfords brand of chic, upscale rooms. This construction project has been met with several setbacks since its inception, including a lawsuit brought by Wynn because the original design was too similar in nature to The Wynn and its sister property, Encore. This sent architects back to the drawing board, so to speak. As a result, the original unveiling date was not met. However, construction is now full steam ahead and will feature 3,500 guest rooms and suites, a 117,000 square foot casino, a 5,000 person capacity theatre, and a 100,000 square foot LED screen on the West Tower, said to be one of the biggest in the world.
But don’t expect the heavy equipment and tower cranes to disappear from The Strip because the Dream Hotel Las Vegas will begin construction in early 2021 with an expected debut sometime in 2023. Located across the street from Mandalay Bay and close to McCarran International Airport, Dream Hotel is being billed as a boutique casino-hotel seeing as the demand has increased for guests desiring a more personal touch than can be offered at mega-properties like Caesar’s Palace, MGM, or The Mirage. The Cromwell and the Cosmopolitan have both seen success with a boutique-like atmosphere, so Dream aims to offer more of the same.
Blueprints call for a 21-story tower that will feature 450 stylish guest rooms and suites. Also offered on-property will be seven dining and nightlife venues, consisting of 3 restaurants, 2 bars and lounges and a grab-and-go café located on the street level. A third bar and lounge will be placed on the rooftop alongside the pool and sunbathing area.
Dream Las Vegas will offer 12,000 square feet of event and meeting space, a fitness center, and a full-service spa. Details about the casino have not yet been released.
Proximity to the monorail at Mandalay Bay will allow guests easy access to the T-Mobile Arena and new Allegiant Stadium, as well as quick entry to The Luxor and The Excalibur.
