BOOMING Indian business Oyo Hotels & Homes has partnered with Highgate to create its first flagship property in the US, the Oyo Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
The Ritesh Agarwal-founded hospitality group will rebrand Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, according to the deal.
The US real estate investment and hospitality management company, Highgate, runs the Hooters hotel in Vegas.
The hotel, with 657 rooms and a 35,000-square-feet casino, will continue to be managed by Highgate.
The public space will include two signature restaurants, four bars, a fitness centre, and an outdoor pool.
Chief executive of OYO Ritesh Agarwal tweeted: “We are excited to announce @oyoamerica’s 657-room flagship #OYO Hotel & Casino #LasVegas with Highgate featuring the iconic Hooters restaurant/bar. With 112+ hotels in 60+ cities & 21 US states, we’re proud to add Las Vegas to the growing list.”
The property will undergo a renovation, which will be completed this year.
Highgate will assume management of the hotel, and Paragon Gaming will continue to operate the casino.
