This Week’s MtM Vegas
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas opened this past week with a lot of buzz and a lot of people leaving disappointed. Our friend Rick from Travel on Points was there on opening day. He didn’t just attend the grand opening but stayed in the hotel as well. Check out his written review over at Travel on Points and checkout our detailed video below.
In this MtM Vegas episode, we give a fully detailed Virgin Hotels Las Vegas review including what to expect at the property. We also discuss the opening day experience both in the hotel and casino including how they dropped the ball in many ways and what they got right. From not having hotel rooms ready to no pool, it is clear the place wasn’t ready for prime time.
Rick will also talk about his overall impressions of the décor including which places got it right and which didn’t. With so many operators at Virgin it does sort of feel all over the place, but there were some highlights. Mostly though it seems this launch was messed up in many ways leaving guests unhappy and many wondering how this could have happened.
I had such high hopes for Virgin Hotels Las Vegas and with Rick’s experience plus negative thoughts from many others on social media that excitement has been tempered. I’ll check out the hotel myself in a few weeks, but I think it is safe to say Virgin Hotels Las Vegas screwed up its launch and that is quite the shame. What do you think?
