JUNE 24 UPDATE: Circa Las Vegas is now accepting reservations. The newest hotel-casino in downtown Las Vegas began accepting reservations at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Reservations are being accepted beginning Dec. 28. A two-night stay is required if you book that date. According to the hotel's website, the cheapest room is $299 per night or approximately $740 for 2 nights with taxes and a resort fee.
If looking to book a hotel room on New Year's Day, the cost jumps to $699 for the basic room. However, guests may book just one night.
Designed by Steelman Partners and Circa’s Director of Design and Architecture Alice O’Keefe, Circa’s uniquely tapered 71-degree tower – the tallest building north of the Strip – will deliver unobstructed views of either the iconic Las Vegas skyline, surrounding mountains or the resort’s pool amphitheater in Circa’s 777 rooms and suites.
Setting a new Las Vegas standard, each of Circa’s standard rooms will have Serta Prestige king mattresses, including double-bed rooms. Flex options will enable Circa’s hotel staff to configure rooms to meet guests’ specific needs and coordinate bed arrangements for groups of varying sizes. All rooms will come equipped with a digital tablet that will act as a one-stop-shop for checking restaurant menus, booking reservations for Circa’s sportsbook and pool, and even controlling the room’s light settings.
Paying tribute to Downtown Las Vegas’ thriving art scene, and the city’s history and culture, rooms will display commissioned works by several local artists. Curated by DAC Art Consulting, the collection includes pieces by Jelaine Faunce, Deidra Wilson, Schinn Loong, Sarah Scherf and Adolfo Gonzalez with Yesco.
The new Circa Las Vegas, which is scheduled to begin opening Oct. 28, had announced it will be for adults only.
The property posted an announcement on social media on Monday. It says, "Once, Las Vegas held a certain mystique as this fabulous place where only grown-ups could play. Call us old-fashioned, but we think adults need some of that mystique back in their lives. Book your room starting June 24th at 9am for #CircaLasVegas, a 21+ experience.”

The property, owned by Derek Stevens, will open its casino, sportsbook and restaurants on Oct. 28. The hotel tower is scheduled to open in December.
Stevens also owns the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate and they will continue to allow children. Additionally, Barry’s Downtown Prime at Circa will allow patrons under 21.
Circa is the first ground-up hotel and casino to be built since the Lucky Dragon on Sahara Avenue opened in 2016.
Although Las Vegas was originally advertised as a place for adults, it spent much of the 1990s trying to attract families. The MGM built an amusement park behind its hotel and casino and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority launched a campaign designed to attract families.
In the early 2000s, most properties and officials decided it was time to return to a more adult theme. Sexy revue shows became the norm and after Sept. 11, then Mayor Oscar Goodman encouraged everyone to “go out and have a lap dance.”
Even now, it is not unusual to see children in strollers being wheeled through the various properties or on Fremont Street during the late evening hours.
