Resorts World Las Vegas Tour

Resorts World Las Vegas Tour

At 11pm on June 24, 2021 the landscape of Vegas casinos changed forever with the opening of Resorts World Las Vegas. Perhaps those are strong words, but in reality Vegas has had a long stretch without anything new and coming out of the pandemic, Resorts World has just about perfect timing.

This new mega resort features over 3,500 rooms spread across three upscale Hilton brands. The main towers share a large Hilton and a 1,500 room Conrad which is the largest of that brand in the world. There is also a 236 room ultra-luxury hotel called Crockfords which carries Hilton’s new LXR brand. And boy does it look impressive.

Goodbye Stardust & Echelon Place – Hello Resorts World

Resorts World Las Vegas sits on land that once housed the historic Stardust casino. It closed in 2006 and was torn down to make way for Echelon Place. That project was to be the most expensive in Vegas history, but it eventually stalled out with the Great Recession and sat there as nothing more than a few steel frames for about a decade. Malaysian company Genting eventually purchased the property and despite taking A LONG time and showing many concepts, they finally built the place.

Resorts World Las Vegas Initial Thoughts

The Las Vegas Strip has a new high-end casino and one that is definitely worth visiting. While we’ll have a ton of “guest experience” info and real hotel reviews in the coming week, I left the place impressed on many levels. The materials are top notch, the design is ultra-modern and they have somehow mixed new concepts with an understanding of Vegas that is impressive.

In my Resorts World opening day tour I  take you to each of the three hotel lobbies (you don’t want to miss Crockfords) plus through many of the restaurants, around the casino, up to the massive pool area and everywhere in between. I think you’ll be just as impressed with me as to what they have built in this place. It really makes even Cosmo feel a bit dated.

Resorts World Las Vegas Tour – Bottom Line

Mark and I are both staying at Resorts World Las Vegas this weekend and we will have full coverage of the hotels in the next week as we pay our own way and share our honest thoughts as guests. While I can’t wait to stay in Conrad on Monday, I am happy to say they nailed this place on just about every level. Yes, there is still a lot of work to be done, but that’s just the way Vegas opens hotels.
