RESORTS WORLD LAS VEGAS
EXPLORING THE MEGARESORT
A grand debut
Resorts World Las Vegas is the first new casino-resort to be constructed on the Strip in more than a decade. At $4.3 billion, the 3,506-room Resorts World is the most expensive hotel-casino ever built in Nevada. Among its features are high-tech LED screens throughout the property, three hotels, nine pools, 117,000 square feet of gaming space, 70,000 square feet of dining and retail space and 250,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space.

"This building is shimmering and alive! ... And when it's alive, that's what Las Vegas is."
Paul Steelman, architect for Resorts World
Three hotels, three entrances
Three Hilton brands reside within the towers of Resorts World Las Vegas and each brand has its own entry and porte-cochere.
Guests can access their hotel without having to wend their way through a casino.

Crockfords Las Vegas
Crockfords is one of only eight properties in Hilton's luxury LXR brand. The Las Vegas hotel's 236 guestrooms and suites fill floors 60 through 66 of the east tower. They range in size from 550 to 7,000 square feet. Amenities include such as butler service, full room service, and access to private gaming salons.
Conrad Las Vegas
Conrad Las Vegas is Hilton’s contemporary luxury brand. With 1,496 rooms and suites, it occupies floors 15 through 59 of the east tower. Rooms range from 550 to 2,800 square feet and curated art can be found in the lobby, hallways and rooms.
Las Vegas Hilton
The Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World has roughly 1,774 rooms ranging from 400 to 3,300 square feet, filling the entire west tower. More affordable than either Conrad Las Vegas and Crockfords, the rooms are described by Resorts World as having “smart, luxurious amenities in a comfortable and refined setting."
LED displays cover resort towers
Mesh is increasingly popular for signage because of its high transparency, mobility and slim design. It can be used or everything from a stage backdrop to a media facade that covers an entire building.
The curtains can withstand extreme weather conditions.
The lightweight design of LED curtains can reduce wind resistance by as much as 35 percent.
LED curtains feature lightweight aluminum slats, making the cost-effective and visually powerful at a large scale.
Pitch pixel range of 50mm
LED profiles can be angled downward up to 20 degrees to improve street-level visibility.
It allows 50 percent of light to pass through so guests inside hotel rooms can see outside.
A notable piece at Resorts World is The Globe, comprising 8,640 triangular panels joined together to project dynamic and interactive imagery. The 50-foot diameter globe, situated in The District retail shopping complex, is expected to be built by the time the property opens Thursday, though the video content won’t be ready until early July. The resort is getting help from two Hollywood content producers with The Globe’s videos.
Pattern of screens
The sphere consists of 31 triangular LED module types built into 22 different triangular cabinet types, totaling 8,640 modules in 2,160 cabinets.
360-degree aluminum structural design with adjustable brightness.
