Peep The New Signature Rooms at Westgate Las Vegas
Unlike a few of the recent owners of the former International Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas Hilton and LVH, the operators of the rebranded Westgate Las Vegas aren't messing around. David Siegel and Westgate promised big changes when the sale was announced and it looks like things are happening.
I've been bullish on the bones of this great property for years, saying in this 2012 post:
The LVH is fruit ripe on the vine... perfect for the picking by a savvy operator with ideas, experience and capital to make it happen. Goldman Sachs, holders of the debt notes, want to foreclose. Other operators are swooping in kicking the tires and doing loads of due diligence. It is only a matter of time, not years but months, before the third shoe finally drops and LVH gets a new owner, a new lease on life and another new name.
My predictions may have been aggressive in terms of timeframe, but still accurate... the bones are still good and with the right ownership good things can happen. Since the Westgate rebrand, the old Hilton/LVH have been getting upgrades it desperately needs - a shake out of dining offerings, new entertainment strategy, competitive pricing, effective marketing and new hotel rooms.
The previous Hilton-era rooms were clean, homey and unassuming but about as sexy as an episode of Ice Road Truckers. When set amidst a sea of thumbnail sized hotel options, those old rooms don't cut the modern mustard. Alas, the Westgate Las Vegas' Signature Rooms.
The Signature King at Westgate features one king bed set against a chubby tufted leatherette headboard with matching crystal drop floor lamps, a red couch and a Marilyn Monroe painting on the wall. Clean, concise, and bright even if the view mock up makes it look like the hotel is falling over.
Here's an alternate view.
This view mockup is indeed accurate(ish) but photo was flipped horizontally. Weird, yes, but not nearly as jacked as SLS' fraudvertising.
The Signature Queen at Westgate features two queen beds and swaps out the couch for two argyle print chairs with the same color palette. There is a small table ledge against the window perfect for resting your scotch while pressing your ham.
In terms of design, the only way either of these rooms gets any better is with zebra print carpeting.
Westgate is also showing this peculiar version of the Signature room, with candy red bench and an old headboard with the Hilton crest on it.
A sample search for mid-week room Signature Room rates in July shows they start at $62/night, a $20 premium on the non-renovated Premium Rooms. Westgate's resort fee is now $22/night. A certain October weekend is priced at $162/night.
Westgate has also adopted a new slogan - "Experience The New Center of Las Vegas". That damn center has shifted again!!!
