Updated January 5, 2024 - 12:03 pm

More than $8 billion in construction projects were completed in 2023 in Southern Nevada, giving the city 4,687 new hotel rooms and 572,100 square feet of new convention space.

While 2024 won’t be as impressive, there still will be a fairly good list of projects destined for completion, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s Current and Future Projects Construction Bulletin.

The 2023 list had nine hotel projects completed during the calendar year, including Fontainebleau and Durango in December.

Other new projects included the Nirvana and Aloft Henderson in March, Home2 Suites by Hilton in North Las Vegas and Springhill Suites near Harry Reid International Airport in July, Home2 Suites by Hilton on Sunset Road in August and Bent Inn in December.

Crews also put 300 rooms back online at the Silverton after a remodeling project completed in October.
