Resorts World Announces Hotel-Within-a-Hotel, Crockfords Las Vegas

Resorts World Las Vegas has revealed details of its hotel-within-a-hotel, Crockfords Las Vegas. Which you probably already knew because you read headlines.

As with Nobu at Caesars Palace or Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay, Crockfords Las Vegas will be a distinct experience at Resorts World, according to the news release.

Mostly, we like pretty renderings, so let’s go.

If the first thing you thought of when you heard “Crockfords” was shoes, you are not invited.

The $4.3 billion Resorts World is slated to open in summer 2021, and when it does, Crockfords Las Vegas will account for 230 rooms of the resort’s overall 3,500.

Crockfords Las Vegas is part of LXR Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s newest luxury brand. Although, it’s owned by Genting Group, owners of Resorts World. Resorts World will also feature two more Hilton brands, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Conrad. There will be a quiz. Read more and please explain it to us when you have time, thanks.

Crockfords will have its own entrance, lobby and check-in at Resorts World, and each guest will receive a foot rub from visionary Elon Musk.

Just had to check to see if you’re still reading.

Crockfords’ lobby sets the stage for all the fancy in store.

Here’s a peek at the Crockfords rooms and suites. The three-bedroom suites range between 1,100 and 3,000 square feet.

This is the superior king room, complete with a variety of sturdy furniture.

The one bedroom is pretty swanky.

Each of the rooms will have a “water closet.” You know it’s a upscale hotel when there’s a special closet to keep your water.

Guestrooms feature taupe and nude tones. Fun fact: The Nude Tones were one of our favorite band in the ’80s.

Crockfords will also have two Presidential Suites, two Villas and three Palaces.

Those blue things are called bed scarves, or runners. Yes, we have far too much free time.

Each Villa and Palace will have its own outdoor garden and terrace.

Topping the list of places we won’t be able to afford is the Chairman’s Villa. It’s 6,000-square-feet of luxury, a show kitchen, private karaoke room and badass views of The Strip.

We were going to comment about the ethereal color palette of the Villa, then realized we would have to look up “ethereal” and possibly “palette.”

Here’s another rendering of a Villa at Crockfords.

We are currently experiencing Villa envy.

While the whole hotel-within-a-hotel concept is a little baffling to us laypersons, there’s no denying the renderings of Crockfords are bound to get the attention of guests who might otherwise have overlooked Resorts World.

One of the marketing challenges for Resorts World will be pulling guests from the two established powerhouses on The Strip, Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts.

It won’t hurt that Crockfords Las Vegas will be part of the Hilton Honors guest loyalty program. Hilton Honors has 108 million members. Yes, we counted.

Behold the Palace suite at Crockfords. Now would be a great time for you to get an inheritance of some sort.

According to the news release, Crockfords was founded in London’s fashionable St. James district more than a century ago. The brand has locations in Cairo, Singapore and Malaysia.

We’re adding Crockfords Las Vegas to the ever-expanding list of reasons we’re watching Resorts World’s opening closely and with growing anticipation.

Yes, that’s our anticipation growing. Don’t make it awkward.

It’s comforting to have a sprawling resort with that new casino smell to look forward to on The Strip in 2021 after all the WTF Las Vegas has endured in 2020.

Resorts World is going to mean a world of new and shiny in Vegas, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

    Here’s hoping by the time 2021 comes around, Las Vegas will return to some sort of pre-pandemic normal that will justify the $4.3 billion investment.

    The fact that the three hotels within the Resorts World complex are Hilton brands but owned by Genting isn’t unusual. Virtually all hotels connected to major chains like Hilton or Marriott are franchises.

    For example, the number of hotels that are actually owned by Hilton can almost be counted with your fingers and toes. (It’s between 20 and 30, last time I checked.) That’s about 30 out of over 6,200 properties worldwide.

    There are distinct benefits to operating a hotel as part of a major hotel group like Hilton. As mentioned in the article, having access to the frequent guests of the hotel group can be great. Additionally, these three hotels will be able to use Hilton’s property management system as well as their revenue management software. Having pre-packaged software that is already optimized for the United States market is going to be a great for a company that currently only has two other US properties (in the Catskills).

    Although I never thought this resort would actually happen, I’m happy that I was wrong. Based on some of the decisions Resorts World has made (like going with Hilton), I think this place might actually survive. They just need some deep pockets to make it through a year or two of COVID-reduced travel.

    Crockford’s Club was a famous gentlemen’s club in London; but probably not what we would think of as a “gentlemen’s club” nowadays. It was open from 1823 to 1845, and again from 1928 to 1970. “One of London’s older clubs, it was centred [note suave British spelling] on gambling and maintained a somewhat raffish and raucous reputation.” [1] John Scarne mentions it in his 1961 treatise “The Complete Guide to Gambling.”
    More recently it has been just a London casino, relocated not far from the original spot [2].
