The hospitality group will be renovating the property this year. “We will be undergoing a renovation and will come up with some of the most loved amenities and experiences that are sure to Las Vegas visitors from around the world,” Abhinav Sinha, COO and Partner, OYO Hotels & Homes USA said.

While Highgate will take over the management of the hotel, Paragon Gaming will continue to operate the casino, officials revealed.

Speaking about their latest property, Sinha added: “With our newest hotel in Las Vegas, we are furthering our commitment to enable our guests to experience living the good life, and are certain we will become their preferred place to stay and truly enjoy Las Vegas in the coming months.”
