The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa has wrapped a major renovation project to reposition the hotel as a non-gaming, non-smoking property. Under the management of Crescent Hotels & Resorts, the casino floor has been removed to make way for Jake & Eli, an original restaurant and lobby bar concept, as well as the new and upgraded meeting spaces.

“Travelers often mix work and play when they come to Las Vegas, and our proximity to The Strip gives us the opportunity to offer an alternative to the typical casino property while staying true to The Westin brand,” said Lezlie Young, general manager of The Westin Las Vegas Hotel & Spa, in a written release. 

The new Jake & Eli restaurant is inspired by the imagined meeting of two innovators credited with being the first to create the concept of American bourbon. Guests can expect a mix of classic comfort food and signature cocktails. A décor emphasizing exposed brick walls, industrial chandeliers, high-top seating and plush booths creates a contemporary setting aimed at business and leisure travelers alike.

The Westin Las Vegas has added four new meeting rooms, located off the lobby, increasing its capacity by 20 percent. These flexible spaces are complete with custom catering options including a private buffet, signature menus from Jake & Eli, and a dedicated pre-function space, making this area the ideal spot for large and small business or social groups.

The new lobby-level design complements the previous enhancements made this year, which included updating the 826 guest rooms and suites and reimagining the Hibiscus Spa and Salon and Westin WORKOUT Fitness Studio. The final phase of improvements, including the outdoor pool area, is expected to be completed by early 2018.
