Virgin Hotels Las Vegas is to officially debut next month, after “current conditions in the market as it pertains to the pandemic” was cited in January amid the latest delay to impact the overhauled former Hard Rock International property.
Confirmation came from Richard Bosworth, president and CEO of JC Hospitality, owner of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, who confirmed that the casino resort, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, is scheduled to open on Thursday, March 25.
“It has been a journey, but to finally reach this milestone and confidently announce our opening date would not be possible without our incredible partners and construction team,” said Bosworth.
“Today we are not only celebrating the fact that we finally get to welcome back guests to the most exciting resort to open in Las Vegas in years, but we also get to bring our team members back to work.”
The latest delay came after the group had previously intended to debut its revamped venue during the latter stages of 2020, before revising that target in September of last year to January 15, 2021.
Located off-strip, the 60,000 square foot Mohegan Sun Casino, operated by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, will offer players a variety of experiences including slots, table games, high-limit areas and a race and sportsbook.
The refurbished resort will also feature more than 1,500 suites across the three towers of Ruby, Opal and Canyon; a five-acre desert pool oasis including a multi-functional event lawn; live music and entertainment theater with 4,500 capacity; 24 Oxford showroom accommodating 650 guests; and an exclusive portfolio of twelve food and beverage venues.
