Resorts World Las Vegas is finally open! The integrated casino resort was built on the land that was once home to the Stardust. Boyd Gaming imploded the beloved casino in 2007 to build a mega-resort complex called Echelon Place. Construction started on a very ambitious project (see more info here) shortly thereafter and ended in 2008. The current owners, Genting, broke ground on Resorts World in 2015. Plans for the $4.3 billion property have changed a few times since Resorts World was officially announced. It’s finally open and a great addition to the Vegas Strip.
Resorts World is the first casino to open on the Vegas Strip that was built from the ground up in more than a decade. The Cosmopolitan is the last bottom-up property to open on the Vegas Strip. “This is a very proud moment for Genting and our Resorts World Las Vegas family as we are honored to officially open our doors,” said Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas.
He continued, “This spectacular resort was designed to usher in a new era of hospitality in Las Vegas with unsurpassed dining and entertainment, an array of luxury hotel accommodations, and new-age technology. We are excited to finally be able to present this resort to the world and officially welcome guests to experience our exceptional amenities firsthand. We are grateful for all of the support we received during our opening and truly hope our community and visitors enjoy all of the hard work that went into creating this incredible property.”
We’ve been sharing news about Resorts World pretty often over the past year. Frankly, it was worth it. There are so many elements of this integrated casino resort worth featuring. Let’s refresh your memory about the hotels at Resorts World in case you’ve moved on from all of the news from the past year.
