Ipanema Tower at Vegas' Rio Hotel starts renovation

Dreamscape Companies is set to renovate the Ipanema Tower at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, revamping 1,427 guestrooms and suites. The overarching design approach is part of the larger vision to completely revitalize the property. Marnell Architecture Planning & Design will lead the design.

The standard 600-square-foot guestrooms will be upgraded with all new furnishings and fittings, a tub-to-shower conversion and separate living and sleeping zones. All rooms will have a sectional sofa with a queen-size pull-out bed.

The new design aims to showcase the architecture and foundation of the property while delivering an elevated yet approachable luxury experience for the guests. The Ipanema Tower guestroom designs are inspired by apartments near Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, referencing the collected furnishings of Brazilian design. The art collection will focus on Brazilian artists and/or subjects and lends a more authentic art sensibility than the average hotel art.

The renovations of Rio's Ipanema Tower are underway and scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2024. The property will remain open throughout the renovation process, with Dreamscape slated to officially take over and manage operations at the resort in fall of 2023.
