THE PALAZZO LAS VEGAS TO TAKE LUXURY TO NEW HEIGHTS
Las Vegas’ Newest Resort-Hotel-Casino Prepares for Grand Opening, Announces World Class Dining, Entertainment and Amenities
Las Vegas (November 7, 2007) – Presenting the newest hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in nearly three years, Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS) has announced that The Palazzo Las Vegas—the lavish resort under development adjacent to the famed Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino—will soft-open on December 20 followed by a series of spectacular grand opening celebratory events from January 17 to 19, 2008.
According to President of The Palazzo Las Vegas Rob Goldstein, the property will become a new resort-hotel-casino of unparalleled luxury, sophistication, and contemporary chic on the Las Vegas Strip. The Palazzo will feature modern European ambience and design reminiscent of Italian affluent living with a unique combination of premium amenities that include: spacious suites; restaurants by top celebrity chefs such as Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse, Mario Batali and Charlie Trotter; extraordinary entertainment with the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys and 40/40 Club, a Las Vegas version of New York’s dynamic sports bar and lounge; The Shoppes at The Palazzo featuring luxury stores anchored by Las Vegas’ first-ever Barneys New York; and, the largest Canyon Ranch SpaClub to date.
“In The Palazzo Las Vegas, our vision was to develop a property of elevated luxury in Las Vegas,” said Goldstein. “We’re balancing sophisticated design and décor and luxurious experiences with some of the simple comforts of home to cater to the preferences of the most discerning traveler.”
Pre-launch events for The Palazzo are being held on both Coasts this month. Last night, the experiences of The Palazzo were recreated at an exclusive event in New York City. Next week Wolfgang Puck’s CUT will be host to a private luncheon for VIP guests in Los Angeles.
During the grand opening weekend in January, invited guests and celebrities will be welcomed to The Palazzo for an exclusive event on the evening of Thursday, January 17. The Shoppes at The Palazzo will open their doors January 18. Celebrations will culminate with a concert featuring a variety of internationally renowned performers on January 19. Tickets for the concert will be available to the public for purchase with details to be released late November.
