The tourism situation in Las Vegas is improving every single week. As a result, more of the casino-resorts are slowly getting back to normal. According to new reports, more amenities at the Las Vegas Virgin Hotel are beginning to open right now.
This new casino-resort opened its doors earlier this year. It’s a huge move for the Virgin Group and the company’s first foray into the casino business. Today, we’ll talk about what new amenities are opening up in this Las Vegas property.
Let’s get into it!
All Restrictions Are Set to be Lifted in Las Vegas Next Month
Las Vegas was devastated by the events that unfolded last year. From an economic point of view, this city was hit harder than any other in the country. Fortunately, there are clear signs of recovery taking place in this popular gambling hub.
The casinos in Las Vegas were shut down from March until June. After reopening, these casinos were ordered to abide by intense health regulations. That included major capacity limits and ordering masks to be worn by guests at all-time.
Even today, all of the casinos in this city still have restrictions set in place. It’s been difficult for the owners of these venues to deal with. Many people around the country are still unwilling to visit Las Vegas while these regulations are set in place.
Not long ago, Governor Sisolak announced that all restrictions would be lifted at the beginning of June. It’s exciting news for both gambling fans and the companies operating casinos in Las Vegas. Many believe this will lead to a major surge of tourism into the city.
Many of the biggest casino-resorts have recently chosen to expand their operating hours. Some have also begun offering their guests new options for rooms, dining, and entertainment. It’s exciting news for those interested in visiting the city over the next few months.
One new property that many are excited to see is the Virgin Hotel-Casino. It now appears that this venue is set to expand in a big way.
Additional Amenities at the Las Vegas Virgin Hotel are Set to Open
Every few years, an exciting new gambling venue opens its doors in the city of Las Vegas. Most recently, the Virgin Hotel-Casino opened here. This property is up and running and sits where the former Hard Rock Hotel-Casino sat just off the Las Vegas Strip.
The opening of this venue was delayed many times over the years. Of course, the pandemic made it difficult to open a brand new casino. Finally, in March, this property opened its doors to the public.
Many health restrictions have remained in place here over the last few months. Fortunately, that is about to change. Reports now indicate that many of the amenities at the Las Vegas Virgin Hotel are about to open up.
Over the next few months, the casino’s swimming pool, beach club, and sportsbook will finally begin operating. Richard “Boz” Bosworth, President and CEO of this property, confirmed this news to the media this week. You can check out his comments below.
“That’s because we’re brand-new, and that’s what is to be expected,” he said. “Because we literally started with no reservations. So we’re building, and the market is very much booking for the next 30, 60, and 90 days out… We were not waiting for entertainment, we were not waiting for events to come back. We were not even waiting for market occupancy and rates to come back. We wanted to get open because we felt it was safe, knowing that it was an opening that was going to take over a period of months, as we opened up our swimming pools, as we opened up more restaurants and nightlife, that it was going to take a period of time.”
Things are about to get considerably more exciting in Las Vegas. More casino-resorts here are going to be opening more amenities over the next few months. Stay tuned for updates!
