The birth of Virgin Atlantic Las Vegas Hotel was announced in 2018. Richard Branson’s favorite Las Vegas hotel was the Hard Rock so it is no surprise he made the purchase! Branson enjoyed walking around and viewing the memorabilia of Johnny Rotten, the Rolling Stones, Bowie and other Virgin bands plastered on the walls.
Conde Nast named Chicago Virgin Atlantic best hotel during its first year. If he sticks with his promise to not add hidden fees such as wifi, many of us will be very pleased. I love how they do NOT over charge for M&M’s and drinks in the rooms. And I would not at all be surprised if Virgin Atlantic Las Vegas earns best hotel in Vegas during its first year.
Too bad we have to wait until 2021 to visit the Virgin Atlantic Las Vegas.Things to Do: Las Vegas
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino of Las Vegas will close in February 2020. It will require approximately eight months of renovations. Initially, they had planned to close for four months. The reason for the closing is remodeled and re brand the Hard Rock to a Virgin Hotel.

KTNV and the Las Vegas Review-Journal report the renovation process will shut down for the entire renovation which will take about right months.
“We determined that a phased closing of four months, followed by a total closure of four months was not efficient from a construction process nor could we provide a hospitality service experience our guests deserve,” JC Hospitality President and CEO Richard Bosworth told both outlets in a statement.
“Therefore an approximate eight-month closure would be most efficient and ensure a timely opening prior to January 2021,” he added.
Before closing, Hard Rock guests can see live performances by Brian Wilson and The Zombies, Cake & Ben Folds, Greta Van Fleet, Daughtry, Stone Temple Pilots and comedian Demetri Martin.
A statement from the CEO:
“We determined that a phased closing of four months, followed by a total closure of four months was not efficient from a construction process nor could we provide a hospitality service experience our guests deserve. Therefore an approximate eight-month closure would be most efficient and ensure a timely opening prior to January 2021. We might be ready in October, but construction is an imperfect process. Until early February 2020 it is business as usual at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. Virgin Hotels Las Vegas promises to be one of the most exciting, vibrant, and anticipated properties to open in Las Vegas in years.”
