2 Las Vegas resorts among first to participate in new booking system

Updated June 2, 2021 - 9:34 pm

Two Las Vegas Valley resorts are among the first to participate in an integrated amenities booking program.

Guests at the Sahara Las Vegas and Resorts World Las Vegas will be able to book restaurants, clubs, pools, attractions, bundles, recreation and more all under one shopping cart, a release said.

Bookings are available through OpenTable in partnership with Las Vegas-based hospitality technology company UrVenue, the companies announced Wednesday.

The partnership streamlines the reservation process for a resort’s offerings available through UrVenue and OpenTable, according to the release. Sahara Las Vegas is expected to begin using the unified booking system in July, a UrVenue representative said.

It wasn’t clear whether Resorts World Las Vegas would begin using the program when it opens later this month.

“We’ve always been frustrated about the multiple systems our guests need to use to book the variety of property experiences we have to offer,” Anthony Olheiser, vice president of food and beverage at the Sahara, said in the release. “UrVenue’s partnership with OpenTable will make it easy for our staff to upsell and cross-sell, and for guests to book, and bundle experiences in a singular transaction, driving guest retention and making for a more expansive and diverse experience at our resort.”

Guests will be able to pick individual seats and specific sections with interactive 3D venue maps, time-based bookings like restaurant reservations and duration-based bookings like rentals, the release said.

The Las Vegas resorts are two of three to use the program at its launch. The Godfrey Hotel & Cabanas Tampa in Florida is the third.
