Address: 3000 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas NV 89109
This new iteration of the well-known Malaysian hotel brand is slated to open in mid-2021. What was here before was the Stardust Hotel, which was demolished in 2007 by Boyd Gaming. Instead of completing the proposed Echelon Place, they stopped due to difficult finances of the recession, and sold the property to Genting Group — which runs Resorts World in New York City. Here is the location on GoogleMaps. This casino is located in the South Strip area.
After years of delays, they began construction in 2017, and the projected costs will run $4.3 billion, the highest outlay so far for a Las Vegas casino-resort. The hotel is planned to hold 3,500 guest rooms and have a general Asian theme.
The building seems to bear a strong resemblance to its neighbors across the street, the Wynn and Encore casinos. Wynn Resorts filed a suit for the building’s similarity to the Wynn architectural style, the bronze curved monolith that is both the Wynn and the Encore.
Doubtless the companies will work things out, especially when several Hilton Hotels brands are firmly part of the Resorts World making, giving their name to at least part of the luxury guest accommodations in the towers and villas which are underway.
The casino has a pale, luxe atmosphere already, with a chandelier looking like a massive string of pearls, draping in many loops nearly to the floor. The gaming tables and carpet are also pale as mink. Another area has Chinese-red huge chandeliers.
There will be a pool complex, with an infinity pool; top Michelin-graded dining venues, theater with 5000-person capacity, and naturally all the spas and entertainment worthy of top casinos.
