Resorts World Las Vegas is the most expensive resort ever developed in the US capital and, covering nearly 88 acres, is the largest new property in the region in over ten years.
The resort will have 3,500 hotel rooms and suites, one of the world’s largest LED screens in one of its towers, and a 5,000-seat theater.
Malaysian casino operator Genting has partnered with Hilton Worldwide to establish the resort as the new attraction with the goal of providing a big boost to Las Vegas.
As tourists return to the region, visitor numbers remain well below 2019 levels, with those numbers dropping more than 50% last year amid the height of the pandemic.
According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, visitor numbers increased more than 15% between March and April 2021, but is more than 27% below the same period in 2019.

Resorts World Las Vegas is located on the former site of the Stardust Resort and Casino, which was the largest hotel in the world when it opened in 1958, before being demolished in 2007.
Genting purchased the site in 2013 after a failed project by a previous owner, with the new resort’s opening delayed on several occasions due to issues such as design changes.
