It’s been a while since you guys posted a list of the world’s largest hotels. You used to do it regularly. Any changes in the list over the past decade or so?


You're right; we haven't updated this list in a while. Thanks for the suggestion.

The list of the world's largest hotels doesn't change too frequently, but it does change.

One of the challenges in presenting this enumeration is how rooms are counted. For example, are the Wynn and Encore, and Venetian-Palazzo, two separate hotels or one hotel complex? Are Disney's All-Star hotels (Sports, Music, and Movies) three or one? Do we include all the rooms at City Center? Are the Signature towers at MGM Grand added to the total?

Our list below is based on decisions we made while comparing four different compilations.

Note that Las Vegas is still heavily represented, with six of the 10 largest and 11 of the top 20. When/if Resorts World is completed to the announced size of 6,583 rooms, it will be the fifth largest in the world, giving Vegas seven of the top 10 and 12 of the top 20.  

1. First World (Genting Highlands, Malaysia)  7,351 rooms
2. Venetian-Palazzo (Las Vegas)  7,117
3. MGM Grand (Las Vegas)   6,852
4. City Center (Las Vegas)   6,790
5. Disney All-Star Resorts (Orlando)  5,524
6. Izmailovo (Moscow)  5,000
7. Wynn-Encore (Las Vegas)  4,750
8. Mandalay Bay-Delano-Four Seasons (Las Vegas)  4,726
9. Luxor (Las Vegas)  4,408
10. Ambassador City Jomtien (Thailand)  4,219
11. Excalibur (Las Vegas)  4,008  
13. Sheraton Grand Macao  4,001
14. Caesars Palace (Las Vegas)  3,960
15. Bellagio (Las Vegas)  3,950
16. Circus Circus (Las Vegas)  3,773
17. Shinagawa Prince (Tokyo)  3,680
18. Flamingo (Las Vegas)  3,626
19. Atlantis Paradise Island (Bahamas)  3,414
20. Hilton Hawaiian Village (Honolulu) 3,386

Tomorrow's question
OK, we just read about the merger between MGM and Mirage Resorts [in QoDs 11/25/26], but right after that, Harrah's bought Park Place Entertainment. Can we have a history update here, please?
