According to the statement, Hard Rock has agreed into a long-term leasing arrangement with VICI Properties Inc. for The Mirage’s real estate site.
The 3,044-room facility “will continue to operate as The Mirage Hotel & Casino until the refurbishment and rebranding of the property to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas is complete,” according to Hard Rock International.
As part of the modifications, which Hard Rock claims would “dramatically rethink every facet of the resort,” the company wants to build a guitar-shaped hotel tower on Las Vegas Boulevard adjacent to the site.
