New Hotels In Las Vegas

1. Fontainebleau Las Vegas (Dec, 2023)

Fontainebleau Las Vegas

The Fontainebleau hotel-casino started construction in 2007, set to open in 2008. However, due to the recession, it was put on hold after overbudgeting issues led to a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The bankrupt project changed a few hands over the years before it was reacquired in 2021 by the original owner, Jeffrey Soffer, the Miami-based chairman of Fontainebleau Development.

After 15 years in the making and a $3,7 billion construction cost, Fontainebleau Las Vegas opened on December 13, 2023.

The entrance invites you into a marble-filled elegant lobby, with a high ceiling, freshly smelling florals filled with roses, crystal lighting, and chrome-gold finishes that scream luxury.

3,644 exquisite suites & rooms adorn the massive 67-story structure. Their grandest accommodation is the Fleur de Lis with up to 10,000 square feet of space and expansive Vegas skyline views.

Luxury suites include a one king-size bedroom, between 1,138-2,022 square feet of space, and mountain-Strip views from panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. Regular suites cover less than 937 square feet, and the regular guest rooms are 488-660 square feet.

It features 1,300 slot machines, a 13,480 square feet sportsbook, 6 private gaming salons, a 18,350 square foot high-limit gaming area, and 128 gaming tables. Sadly, there is no poker room here.

Nightlife options are plenty including the world-famous LIV, the busy Bleau Bar filled with huge crystal chandeliers, Nowhere Bar with a live jazz band, and the cute little oasis that is Azul lounge serving mezcal and tequila cocktails.

Caesars rebranded Bally’s Las Vegas on January 26th 2022, a change that did not take effect till December 15th 2022. The name is from the original Binion’s Horseshoe casino that used to be in Downtown Las Vegas.

The name is not the only new thing about the hotel. Horseshoe underwent exterior renovations, new restaurants like Jack Binion’s Steak and M.Y. Asia were introduced, and the casino floor was revamped.

New wallpapers were installed, carpeting redone, and the sportsbook was moved to the main casino. Despite all the changes, all the 2,810 guest rooms remained untouched.

In front of the Horseshoe, a new entertainment venue opened at the Grand Bazaar Shops. It is linked to the county singer and The Voice coach Blake Shelton named Ole Red. This means the Horseshoe should become an exciting new spot for entertainment seekers heading to Las Vegas.

Upcoming Hotels Openings In Las Vegas

It doesn’t look like the transformation and evolution of Las Vegas is going to stop anytime soon. Lots of new luxury hotels will be opening in the upcoming years. Here are just some of the upcoming hotels to look out for during your 2023 or 2024 visit to Sin City.

1. Dream Hotel – On Hold

Dream Hotel is a planned 531-room boutique hotel & casino that was under construction near the Las Vegas Airport and was going to be completed sooner than the end of 2024.

However, the project is currently on hold as the management looks for more funding. A justification letter from Clark County on October 4, 2023 showed the financial issues were being sorted with a resume date set for January 2024.

The massive project has been in the works since February 2020 under a venture of the Contour Real Estate company.

Located at 5051 S Las Vegas Boulevard, Dream Hotel is set to be a convenient location for those who want to be close to the Harry Reid International Airport as well as the T-Mobile Arena.

The development cost is project to be about $550 – $575 million ensuring that the 20,000 square foot space is covered by the casino floor and the rest goes to the 531 rooms as well as the nightlife and dining hotspots.

Dream Hotel is still in its early construction stages since only the foundation has been laid. The company’s dream is to have the 20-story luxury hotel tower as an epitome of contemporary design, dramatic looks, and luxury. We cannot wait to see what a majestic structure it turns out to be.

2. Majestic Hotel – Completed by 2027

Majestic Hotel is far behind on development compared to Dream Hotel. The projected 620 feet tall, 45-story building is set to cost more than $850 million and span a huge area of more than six acres. Apart from its huge ambitious designs, the Majestic Hotel will also set itself apart by being a non-gaming hotel.

Located close to the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Majestic Las Vegas has gone several iterations since Feb 2004 when it was announced by La Concha owner, Lorenzo Doumani. Several iterations were not accepted till 2019 when the county approved the current version for construction near Clarion Hotel & Casino.

Majestic Hotel will feature about seven upscale restaurant and nightlife spots by 2025. With all this in mind, the architect and construction company have projected a very long construction period that will see the hotel up and running by 2027.

3. Tilman Fertitta Hotel

Texas billionaire businessman Tilman Fertitta announced in late 2022 that he and his company Fertitta Entertainment would be constructing a 43-story hotel at the southeast end of the Las Vegas Boulevard.

The project was approved by the Clark County commissioners soon after, giving the owner of the Golden Nugget a chance to build his multi-million-dollar hotel. It has been Tilman’s long-term dream to own a casino on the Las Vegas Strip and it would be fun to see what he does with this huge parcel of land.

Tilman Fertitta Hotel is a placeholder name since the official branding hasn’t yet been announced. However, we know from Tilman’s 2022 statement that it is going to be 43-story tall and host about 2,400 rooms.

There is some speculation online that the hotel is set to open in the last quarter of 2023 but the exact opening date is yet to be announced.

According to the Nevada Independent, vice president with Fertitta Entertainment noted that they are still assessing the viability of the project to see whether Tilman would want to go ahead and put the $270 million land he purchased into building the hotel.

4. Nuance Las Vegas Hotel & Spa – Breaking Ground Early 2024

Nuance Las Vegas is a new 19-story, 340 room hotel & spa boutique project that got approved for construction in June 2023. Located within walking distance from Allegiant Stadium, the project was proposed in September 2021 by New Angle Development for a location at the corner of Polaris and Quail avenues, south of Russel Road.

It is the latest new hotel project in Las Vegas, and the goal is to break ground in early 2024. When completed, the Nuance Las Vegas hotel will include a day spa, ballroom, convention hall, a restaurant, and parking garage (levels 2 – 5), cigar bar & dining area (level 9), and a rooftop bar on level 19.

Although not the most unique ground-breaking addition to the Las Vegas skyline, Nuance Las Vegas is set to fulfill and exploit the lack of any existing non-gaming, non-smoking, full-service, boutique-sized properties providing an alternative experience to the typical massive Las Vegas hotel casino offerings.
