Westgate Resorts has acquired the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The new property will be renamed Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

Westgate Resorts has announced the acquisition of the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino as the newest addition to its portfolio of 28 resorts. The property was formerly known as the Las Vegas Hilton and will be renamed Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. The LVH, at one time, was the largest hotel in the world and was home to such legendary greats as Elvis Presley and Liberace during Vegas’ golden age. The new Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is located one block off the Las Vegas Strip, adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center, and is one of seven stations on the Las Vegas Monorail.

“Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino will set the standard for service in Las Vegas,” said David Siegel, founder and CEO of Westgate Resorts. “We are very excited to be taking this important part of Vegas history and reinventing it for the next generation of Las Vegas visitors.”

The resort is 30 stories tall. With nearly 3,000 rooms, including 300 suites, Westgate will convert some of the rooms to luxury timeshare villas while still operating the resort hotel rooms and suites. Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino features a 95,000-sq.-ft. casino, 200,000 sq.-ft. of meeting and convention space, restaurants, a spa and fitness center, a pool with cabanas, access to golf at the Las Vegas Country Club and a race and sports SuperBook.

“Although a small number of our rooms will be converted into timeshare units, it is important to know that our resort hotel and legendary luxury suites will remain open to our customers,” Siegel explained. “We will be providing the best of both worlds on our resort property. Las Vegas is the center of the universe for luxury destination resorts and the new Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is at the center of the Las Vegas renaissance.”
