Truth Behind the Rumor

It’s true: The St. Tropez Hotel is no more. But the property recently reopened, re-refreshed and re-branded as Rumor, courtesy of a $4 million Siegel Group makeover.

What was an outdated off-Strip property is now Las Vegas’ newest boutique hotel, designed to deliver a retro Palm Springs vibe with sleek décor and a swank, 30,000-square foot backyard featuring a new pool flanked by mature palm trees, hammocks, cabanas and daybeds.

Located at 455 E. Harmon Ave, across from the Hard Rock Hotel, Rumor’s rooms are priced from $89 and feature playful lavender accents and Warhol-inspired chandeliers.

Siegel Group founder and chief executive officer Stephen Siegel describes the property as “sexy yet unpretentious, glamorous and accessible, [and] eclectic, with a relaxing and inviting ambience.”

The 150-room hotel officially reopened July 15, and now sports an interior design by local firm Tandem. Later this summer, the property plans to unveil its Fantastic Four Suites, which are being styled by designer Mark Tracy of Chemical Spaces.

Rumor’s onsite restaurant, Addiction, features a menu by chef Vic Vegas, which includes creative fare such as crème brûlée oatmeal for breakfast, Cuban Reuben sandwiches for lunch and a kurobuta karmal pork dinner entrée.

Small pets are permitted at the hotel, but children are not: Rumor is an ages 18-plus property.
