For a quarter of a century, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas has been making history. Now to celebrate, the hotel is showcasing its 25-year-long existence with a commencement of the property’s “Farewell Tour” before it transforms into Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The hotel and casino has organized a memorabilia exhibition to commemorate the venue and its various recognizable artifacts.

“When the property opened 25 years ago it was ahead of its time – it was the future of Las Vegas. The property played a vital role in the evolution in the city and when Virgin Hotels Las Vegas opens in fall of 2020 it is almost like we are going back to the future,” says Rich ‘Boz’ Bosworth, President and CEO of JC Hospitality, LLC and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.

The memorabilia exhibition opened its doors to the public on Sept. 27, and it will remain open until Dec. 31. Admission to the exhibition is free and all are welcome. “Our goal is to tell the story of the property and the artists that were notable during the property’s time,” says Bosworth. The exhibition will showcase the hotel’s history by featuring over 3,000 pieces of artist memorabilia from legendary performers like Queen, Elton John and Lady Gaga to name a few, with their musical instruments, costumes and concert props on display.

“We just want to be sure to bid a proper farewell to one of Las Vegas’ iconic landmark’s - so during the final months of operation guests will enjoy various activations, promotions and experiences,” Bosworth says. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas also wants to recognize the local community and is offering discounts to the hotels most noteworthy restaurants, Mr. Lucky’s Café and Pink Taco, residents only need to show a valid I.D. and will receive 20 percent off of their dinner and beverage purchase.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
