A 150-room Hyatt Place hotel and several fast-food restaurants will make up Silverton Village, a $60 million project to be built in stages around the Silverton, located 2 miles south of the Las Vegas Strip.
This is the second major addition to the resort following the Berkley Las Vegas timeshare hotel, and there may be more to come on an additional 30 acres of land controlled by Silverton. Silverton Village is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
