The company is slated to have more than 30 hotels and over 11,000 rooms across 12 brands in the market by the end of 2021. On the heels of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, CurioCollection by Hilton’s June opening celebration, and just weeks before the anticipated debut of Conrad Hotels & Resorts, LXR Hotels & Resorts and Hilton Hotels & Resorts at the integrated Resorts World Las Vegas complex, Hilton is making an epic return to this top-tier travel destination, bringing new premium and luxury brands to the Strip.
“Hilton helped create the Las Vegas we know today – the entertainment capital of the world grew as we invested in unparalleled hotels, dining, entertainment and design,” said Hilton President and CEO Chris Nassetta. “Now we are raising the bar again, offering brands for any style of travel with a renewed focus on premium and luxury hotels. Las Vegas has been an especially bright spot in our global growth strategy, and we are excited to open thousands of rooms there just as people begin traveling again.”
Hilton has committed to continue its expansion in the market with a pipeline of seven hotels and nearly 4,000 rooms across five brands, which will increase its footprint by more than 50% by 2023. This adds to the company’s development pipeline of more than 2,570 hotels around the world* and 105 new hotels totalling more than 16,500 rooms opened in the first quarter, along with achieving strong net unit growth of 5.8%.
Hilton has a storied history in Las Vegas with the former Las Vegas Hilton, once the largest hotel in the world and among the city’s most iconic. The hotel made Hilton the first New York Stock Exchange-listed company to enter the domestic gaming business in 1970 and the first hospitality company to have “residency” for top stars as it hosted notable entertainers including Elvis Presley for long runs. With these industry firsts, Hilton helped establish Las Vegas as the prime destination for leisure and business travel it remains today.
According to a recent survey by Hilton, nearly a quarter of Americans surveyed ranked Las Vegas at the top of their must-visit destinations. Hilton is making those travel wish lists a reality for guests, including more than 115 million Hilton Honors members globally, as it expands its presence in the market. With diverse hotel accommodations, offerings and unique amenities coupled with Hilton’s signature hospitality, the company’s growing Las Vegas properties serve every traveler for every trip occasion, backed by an award-winning guest loyalty program.
What’s new in Las Vegas:
Through a first-of-its-kind partnership, the reimagined and reconceptualized Virgin HotelsLas Vegas, Curio Collection by Hilton offers a relaxed, whimsical design and more than 1,500 chambers and suites providing a distinctly home-away-from-home personalized getaway. The resort oasis also features an exclusive spa, a five-acre pool complex including VIP-style cabanas and daybeds along with a beach club, vibrant live entertainment venues, a state-of-the-art casino and 110,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

Additionally, through a historic partnership between Hilton and Genting Group, Resorts WorldLas Vegas is set to open June 24 and marks the largest multi-brand deal in Hilton’s history. The $4.3 billion development integrates the largest Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in the world, one of the first LXR Hotels & Resorts locations in the U.S. and a marquee Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel, each offering its own dedicated entrance, lobby and distinct collection of accommodations. In addition, Resorts World Las Vegas is poised to be Hilton’s largest property globally, with 3,500 guest rooms and suites. With its opening, Conrad and LXR will join Waldorf Astoria in the market to make Las Vegas the only U.S. destination housing all three of Hilton’s luxury brands. The first ground-up resort development on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade, the property is also conveniently near the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Guests staying at any of the three hotels can enjoy premium amenities across the Resorts World Las Vegas campus including more than 40 food and beverage outlets, seven unique pool experiences, an expansive next-generation casino floor, over 250,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a 5,000-capacity theatre that will be home to can’t-miss performances by Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.
