Five openings in sight for Virgin Hotels between 2021 and 2023

Virgin Hotels announced the opening of five hotels in the cities of Miami (2023), Edinburgh (2022), New York City (2021), New Orleans (2021) and Las Vegas (2021).

The first opening in 2021 will be Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

Virgin Hotels Las Vegas
Formerly the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino of Las Vegas, the hotel will feature 1,504 rooms, luxury suites and penthouse suites. Guests will also be able to enjoy a 60,000 square foot renovated casino, multiple pools spread over five acres, several restaurants, lounges and bars, as well as ample meeting space.

Las Vegas has always held a special place in my heart. Virgin Atlantic and Virgin America have enjoyed flying many passengers and holiday makers to Las Vegas over the years and, I’ve always felt that Virgin Hotels will thrive there as well. I’m looking forward to Virgin Hotels painting the town red.

Las Vegas is a dynamic city – the people, the excitement, the entertainment. To me, it’s always been the perfect city for our next Virgin Hotel. We are dedicated to delivering the best in design, entertainment, heartfelt service and culinary excellence and we can’t wait to welcome visitors to what is sure to be an awe-inspiring Las Vegas experience.

Two other openings will follow in 2021, Virgin Hotels New Orleans and Virgin Hotels New York City.

Virgin Hotels New Orleans
The new hotel will be located in the city's warehouse district at 550 Baronne Street. It will have 225 rooms and will feature a swimming pool, a rooftop lounge and meeting and event facilities. Construction will be supervised by RTKL Architects, Mathes Brierre Architects and Broadmoor Construction and the interior design will be carried out by a local architectural firm.

New Orleans is an incredibly special city and one Virgin Hotels has had an eye on from the beginning. The history, the food, the music, the spirit – they all work together to make it a one-of-a-kind destination for both business and leisure travellers. We’re excited to bring the Virgin experience to the Big Easy because it’s a perfect fit in terms of our values and our emphasis on creating unique and immersive experiences for our guests.
