LAS VEGAS—Red Lion Hotels Corp. tapped Las Vegas Hotel & Casino as the first hotel for its new Leo Hotel Collection.
Red Lion Hotels Corporation recently introduced the Leo Hotel Collection as a new brand in development. It is geared toward independent owners of boutique and historic hotels interested in access to the company's reservation distribution systems.
“This historic property is a home run for the Leo Hotel Collection,” said Harry Sladich, EVP/sales, marketing and distribution, for Red Lion Hotels Corp. “The LVH has a rich, storied past as the former stomping grounds and home of Elvis Presley.”
With a 1,650-seat main showroom and 350-seat cabaret, the LVH is a 2,956-room resort hotel that features suites and villas; 14 restaurants; a 95,000-sq.-ft. casino; 220,000 sq. ft. of meeting space; spa; outdoor pool with 17 cabanas; six tennis courts; and access to a private golf course.
Located at 3000 Paradise Road, LVH is one block off The Strip and proximate McCarran International Airport.
