Resorts World Las Vegas, scheduled to open next summer, has unveiled
the guestrooms designs for the Hilton and Conrad hotels in the complex.
The 3,500-room, $4.3 billion, 88-acre luxury resort under
construction on the Las Vegas Strip will feature three Hilton brands -- Hilton Hotels & Resorts, LXR and Conrad.
Resorts World and Hilton partnered on the design concepts, guest experience and
service for each guestroom.
Conrad Las Vegas’ 550-square-foot premium king and queen
rooms, conceived by KNA Design, have a bright color scheme with bold textures
and a mix of contrasting metal and organic elements.
Wave-patterned carpeting and drapery impart a theme of fluidity.
The foyer includes a wardrobe and private bar accented with gold geometric
details. In the bathroom, elegant pops of red in the vanity niche and accent
tiles in the glass walk-in rain shower sustain the contemporary aesthetic.

Curated art pieces commissioned for the resort, inspired by
the Chinese “Water Sleeve Dance,” emphasize fluidity and versatility to deliver
elegance and a sense of calm to the space, according to a Resorts World
announcement about the design.
Scott Sibella, Resorts World president, said he wanted the
rooms to be comfortable and warm, but with a Vegas edge that the artwork
“Las Vegas is always been something where you see things and
discover things that I think no city does as much as we do,” said Sibella in an
exclusive interview with Travel Weekly. “When we design rooms, we try to create
something that gives you a little pizzazz that you may not have at your home,
because it’s maybe a little bit out there, but it just gives you that little
Vegas twist to try to put you in that state of mind to have a good time.”
Hilton Las Vegas’ 400-square-foot deluxe king and queen
rooms, designed by Wilson Associates, have a primary color palette of deep
blues, golds and neutral cream tones.
Geometric, free-flowing patterns and artwork “exude a handsome,
residential feel that’s both modern and warm,” according to the resort’s

A small sitting area looks out to the Strip, and the
bathroom features elegant ceramic tile, a large walk-in glass shower, an LED
vanity mirror and custom vanity and fixtures.
In addition to these guestrooms, Resorts World Las Vegas
will offer luxury suites from each of the three Hilton brands, including
ultra-luxe accommodations as part of LXR Hotels & Resorts.
“We’re developing and designing a luxury to ultra-luxury
property,” said Sibella, who estimated the project is about 65% complete. “Conrad
is one of (Hilton’s) highest brands. So we’ll have one of the largest Conrads
in the world with approximately 1,500 rooms.”
Two separate porte cocheres and lobbies, representing the
distinct choice of room bookings, will greet guests, Sibella said. Guests will
not have to enter the 117,000-square-foot casino to access their rooms.
Although he could not elaborate on room rates, Resorts World will be among the
Strip’s top five in price range.
Las Vegas is a very tech-savvy, hospitality-focused city, he
said. Resorts World, in what would be the first large resort to open on the
Strip since Cosmopolitan in 2010, will employ the latest technology to improve
the guest experience, he said.
It is installing the latest security and surveillance tools,
he said. His team is also monitoring how other resorts on the Strip and
throughout the country are implementing health and safety protocols in the face
of the pandemic. That includes the best possible air quality.
“One of our top priorities is to make sure we have the
freshest and cleanest air all the way into the hotel rooms,” he said. “We’re
really looking at that to make sure it’s the best that you can possibly get in
The technology will also help guide guests to their rooms
with a minimum of interaction, he said.
“People aren’t going to mind not having that one-on-one
experience with employees anymore when they’re here,” said Sibella, who was
president and chief operating officer of MGM Grand for eight years before
joining Resorts World in 2019.
Hilton Las Vegas guestrooms will have a primary color palette of deep blues, golds and neutral cream tones.
“So technology helps them go directly to their room. They
can make decisions with their mobile phone, they can make decisions in the room
where they don’t have to deal with an employee. So we’re taking advantage of
all those type of things. And, you’re going to see things here that we don’t
think anybody is doing on the Strip today.”
As part of its embrace of technology, Resorts World earlier
this month announced plans for an Elon Musk-designed underground transport
system to move guests to and from the Las Vegas Convention Center in less than two
Additional details about the Resort World’s luxury suites, as well as online reservation and
booking information for all guestrooms, will be announced in the coming months.
An onsite sales center for group and meeting planners and
travel agents is set to open on July 14. Models of select Hilton and Conrad
guestrooms will be viewable by appointment, which can be booked by emailing
