The long-awaited $3.7 billion Fontainebleau Las Vegas will open tonight after an invitation-only celebration.
Towering over the north part of the Strip, the 67-story resort features a 150,000-square-foot casino; 3,644 rooms and suites; three dozen restaurants and lounges; a two-level, 90,000-square-foot luxury retail area; a 55,000-square-foot spa; and 550,000 square feet of meetings and convention space.
Construction on the 25-acre site next to the Las Vegas Convention Center began in 2007, and the main structure was topped off in 2008. But several factors — the Great Recession, financing problems, ownership changes and the pandemic — delayed progress until 2021.
“With Fontainebleau Las Vegas, we have transcended aspiration and set the stage for a new era of luxury hospitality defined by innovation, sophistication, and opulence, with an inextricable link to our roots at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach,” Fontainebleau Development chairman and CEO Jeffrey Soffer said. “This building represents a remarkable new chapter in our storied legacy and will be a beacon for those seeking to indulge in the unforgettable.”
The top five floors of the tower will be Fontainebleau Fleur de Lis, a luxurious hotel-within-a-hotel concept with suites designed by the David Collins Studio.
The 50,000-square-foot LIV Las Vegas, a nightlife experience created by hospitality pioneer David Grutman of Groot Hospitality and the first expansion of the iconic LIV Miami Beach, will host DJ John Summit, Puerto Rican rapper Myke Towers and music producer Metro Boomin this weekend.
Rapper, singer and songwriter Post Malone will perform on Dec. 30 and 31 at the 3,800-seat BleauLive Theater.
Self-parking is included in the resort fee for hotel guests, and all guests receive up to four hours of complimentary self-parking.
