The M Resort Spa Casino in Henderson, Nev., the headquarters hotel of the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders, will spend $206 million on a 384-room expansion. The project will add a second tower to the resort, bringing its total to 774 rooms and suites, as well as expanding its meeting space and updating amenities.
"Everything we have been doing over the past few years has been to grow and evolve the property and further enhance the customer experience," said Hussain Mahrous, vice president and general manager of the property. The expansion follows several previous upgrades to the M Resort, such as the opening of the first Raiders Tavern & Grill, the addition of the Coors Light Chill Zone and the debut of the Knight Time Hockey Bar.
"At the M Resort, the addition of a second tower will benefit from the strong demand in the Henderson local market while providing additional capacity for the group business that is drawn to our market-leading resort and amenities, including our highly successful partnership with the Las Vegas Raiders," said Jay Snowden, president and CEO of Penn Entertainment, which operates the resort.
Designed by Marnell Architecture, the project will begin next year.
The property features more than 92,000 square feet of event space, including the 25,000-square-foot M Pavilion, LUX special event venues and a 17,400-square-foot ballroom. Also on-site are 11 restaurants and bars, the Spa Mio, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a 100,000-square-foot pool-and-events piazza.
