Virgin Hotels Las Vegas is delaying its January 2021 opening due to the ‘continuously evolving COVID-19 situation.’
Construction of the property remains on schedule, but owner JC Hospitality confirmed it is ‘carefully evaluating’ its opening date due to the uncertainty of the pandemic.
JC Hospitality CEO Richard Bosworth said: “Due to the continuously evolving COVID-19 situation not only in Nevada but nationwide, we have made the decision to delay the Jan. 15, 2021 opening of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The construction for the project is on time and this decision was predicated on the current conditions in the market as it pertains to the pandemic. While the entire team at JC Hospitality is beyond excited to introduce the reimagined resort casino to locals and tourists alike, the safety and health of our guests, partners and team members continues to be our top priority. We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines put forth by public officials. At this time, an opening date has not been finalised, but an announcement is forthcoming.”
The new Virgin Hotels property is located at the previous Hard Rock Hotel site on Paradise Road. It had begun to accept reservations for part of the Curio Collection by Hilton and had launched the “Us. Unstoppable.” advertising campaign.
The property will feature three unique towers, Opal, Canyon and the all-suite Ruby Tower, offering guests a variety of experiences and each chamber will offer sweeping views of the Las Vegas Strip, surrounding valley or the property’s five-acre pool oasis.
“Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will usher in a new era of the Las Vegas guest experience, offering signature amenities exclusive to the property. In addition to the exciting and functional chambers and suites, the property will also incorporate a passion for food and beverage with a spectacular restaurant collection, bar offerings, spacious casino floor, entertainment, and more, making Virgin Hotels Las Vegas a must-see destination in the city,” added Mr. Bosworth.
