OYO Hotels partner with Highgate opens the doors to its first 657 rooms flagship OYO Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Highgate to create the first OYO Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas! We are pumped to be in America’s original Sin City which is home to some of the most unique attractions. With plentiful entertainment, impeccable food options, luxury shopping, Las Vegas is a versatile retreat option for your next vacation and we at OYO are proud to host you when you visit next!  


Located near the corner of the famed Las Vegas Strip on Tropicana, OYO Hotel & Casino will be one of our largest OYO properties with 657 rooms across nineteen floors and a 35,000 square-foot casino. Earlier being operated as Hooters Casino Hotel, the remodelled hotel will witness an exciting transformation that is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year. We will be bringing the dynamic OYO brand to life in the most recognizable tourist destinations of the world. The additional amenities include two signature restaurants, four bars, a fitness centre, and an outdoor pool. Highgate will be taking care of managing the hotel, while Paragon Gaming will continue to operate the casino.


We kickstarted our journey back in 2013 with the belief of bringing beautifully designed, chic and comfortable living spaces to all kinds of travellers. Since then we have consistently innovated and focused on creating lasting experiences – starting from living spaces to event spaces, with exciting F&B options, and more. We pledge to bring all of these amenities to life in the OYO Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, where Highgate’s expertise and experience will further improve the quality standards. 


Abhinav Sinha, COO and Partner, OYO Hotels & Homes USA on the development said, “I am really excited to announce the commencement of the OYO’s operations in our newest city – Las Vegas.  We are excited to be here as we believe Las Vegas is an exciting city in which to invest as the market continues to evolve with projects such as the new Las Vegas Raiders NFL stadium and the $1 billion expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center. As we continue to focus on bringing to life our popular concept of ‘comfort design’ and delivering chic hospitality experiences, we are increasingly exploring new ways to connect with our customers, from millennials to young executives and families, in every city we enter. With our newest hotel in Las Vegas, we are furthering our commitment to enable our guests to experience #Livingthegoodlife, and are certain we will become their preferred place to stay and truly enjoy Las Vegas in the coming months. We will be undergoing a renovation and will come up with some of the most loved amenities and experiences that are sure to Las Vegas visitors from around the world. We can’t wait to welcome you to our first hotel in Las Vegas.” 


Ritesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO, OYO Hotels & Homes said, “Earlier in June, we announced our plan to invest $300 million in the U.S. As a new-age hospitality company, we currently offer great living spaces throughout our 112+ OYO Hotels in more than 60 cities and 21 states. With our newest hotel in Las Vegas, we are excited to cater to a completely different audience segment and are certain that this will be the perfect start to OYO’s journey in Las Vegas,” 


Neil Luthra, a Principal of Highgate said, “OYO Hotel & Casino offers a tremendous opportunity for Highgate to partner with a visionary company like OYO in one of the world’s most dynamic hospitality markets. We believe OYO’s philosophy of dynamic hotel experiences, combined with our management expertise, will make for a long and successful partnership.” 


Diana Bennett, Paragon Gaming Chairwoman said, “We’ve had great success managing the Hooter’s casino and look forward to continuing on as the Casino Manager and partnering with Highgate to introduce OYO’s hotel brand in Las Vegas.”


We are in the process of becoming the largest hospitality chain in the world and with this mission, we strive to create significant value for consumers, partners and the overall ecosystem every day. We entered the market with a pressing need of offering predictable experiences, operating at scale and mastering the whole gamut of on-ground operations, online distribution and exemplary customer service. With 6 years into the hospitality business and having a dynamic team across the globe, we all have confidently risen to the challenge of delivering against all odds by our innovative offerings that have impacted the global hospitality experiences positively. 


We are privileged to have the support of our investors that include the likes of Airbnb, SoftBank Vision Fund, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Greenoaks Capital, Sequoia India, and Hero Enterprise. We are increasingly evolving into a real estate service platform with a 1 million-plus room under its management, globally. 


We can’t wait to bring OYO’s unique value proposition to the city of Las Vegas- It’s time to paint the city Red!
