A bold project plans to build a new, 45-story resort less than half-a-mile from the main entrance to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Plans filed by the Majestic Resort & Spa call for a built-from-scratch hotel that the owners already predict will host 10 different restaurants across two floors.
Currently an empty plot of land, the Majestic stretches from the intersection of Desert Inn Road and Debbie Reynolds Drive and across to Convention Center Drive, in the shape of an upside down letter “L.”
Parcel documents name the land owner as Lorenzo Douman’s 305CCD LLC, who has been sharing his ambition to build a different hotel complex on the site of the nearby, imploded Clarion Hotel & Casino since he bought the property in 2014. The Majestic brand and the Doumani family also have a long history of ambitious, real estate proposals.
Plans for this Majestic incarnation suggest an upscale environment targeted at conventioneers, adding retail, a pool, and a day spa.
Covering a total of 1,353,066 square feet, and providing 720 hotel rooms, the fine dining “restaurant district” will contain six outlets on the lower floor and four on the second level, with a large outdoor dining and drinking area. It will be easily accessible via a dedicated porte cochere for non-staying guests.
While very early in the process, current plans list a gourmet wine and cheese market, deli and juice bar, Mediterranean restaurant, Asian fusion concept, international coffee house, and a two-level martini lounge and steakhouse located on the ground floor.
Upstairs will feature a 24-hour deli, Italian and Asian fine dining and a large, 7,390-square-foot bar and lounge.
The resort has yet to release any details of the project, or an estimated timetable for start and completion.
