Hilton Worldwide announced plans, in partnerships with Resorts World Las Vegas, to return the storied Hilton brand to the Las Vegas Strip as part of a multi-brand Hilton resort that will include a Hilton hotel, a Conrad hotel, and an LXR hotel.  LXR is the chain’s luxury brand collection.

With this move, Hilton said it is “bringing back the essence of the Las Vegas Hilton, once the largest hotel in the world.”  The Las Vegas Hilton, which opened in 1969 as the International, was the largest hotel in the world from 1981 to 1990.

The deal “underscores Hilton’s commitment to expanding our footprint and portfolio of exceptional properties,” said Ian Carter, Hilton’s president for global development, who noted that the complex would be the hotelier’s largest multi-brand development.

The resort will feature a 5,000-seat theater suitable for corporate events, 350,000 square feet (32,516 square meters) of meeting and event space, a 220,000-square-foot (20,439-square-meter) pool complex, a spa, a fitness center, and numerous restaurants and cafes.

The Resorts World complex is slated to open in 2021. Groundbreaking for the project took place in May 2015.  With an estimated cost of $4.3 million in its entirety, Resorts World would be the most costly resort property ever developed in Las Vegas

The property was the site of the Stardust Resort and Casino until 2007. The Stardust was demolished in 2008 for a project that never took hold.
