Dolce Hotels to reopen former Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas

LAKE LAS VEGAS, NEVADA Dolce Hotels and Resorts has been selected by Village Hospitality LLC to rebrand and manage the former Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas, which has been closed since May. Dolce plans to open the property early next year.

The 349-key resort sits on 15 acres of the master-planned Lake Las Vegas development. Its Mediterranean architecture, featuring clay tile roofs and arched doorways, is reminiscent of Europe’s colorful waterside villages. The property showcases 32,000 sq. ft. of meeting and banquet space and a 30,000-sq.-ft. spa and fitness center, with multiple dining and lounge experiences.

An idyllic setting for weddings, it offers the Las Vegas area’s only over-water chapel, as well as beautiful gardens and courtyards that can be used for private affairs. Located next to the resort’s spa, a heated pool provides guests a sophisticated retreat to relax year-round. The property adjoins MonteLago Village, offering scenic walking streets of boutiques and restaurants.

 “We look forward to managing our first Las Vegas property and working with the Lake Las Vegas community to help revitalize this charming destination,” says Steve Rudnitsky, Dolce’s president and CEO.

The Lake Las Vegas resort is a natural fit for Dolce, which focuses on properties situated just outside major metropolitan areas on sprawling grounds that are ideal for large group meetings. The resort can accommodate gatherings of up to 1,000 attendees. Its advanced meeting space features an 11,841-sq.-ft. ballroom with 7,423 sq. ft. of pre-function area, a smaller 4,700-sq.-ft. junior ballroom and 10 function rooms that include two elegantly appointed boardrooms.
