The newly branded Virgin Hotels, formerly the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, will open to the public on March 25. The property was originally scheduled to open in January but that opening was pushed back by the pandemic. The newly renovated resort will feature over 1500 rooms and suites, a 60,000 square foot casino, a 4500 seat entertainment venue and 650 seat theater, five acre pool complex, and 12 dining establishments including Nobu, One Steakhouse, Pizza Forte, and Casa Calavera. About 300 former Hard Rock employees will return to work at the new resort.
