It took about 20 seconds to destroy the 12-story, 200-room building on Feb. 10, 2015 shortly before 3 a.m, but not its notable history. After originally opening in 1970 as the Royal Inn, the Clarion Hotel closed on Sept. 2, 2014, when Las Vegas developer Lorenzo Doumani bought the six-acre property for $22.5 million in October.
In the Clarion’s place at 305 Convention Center Drive, between the Las Vegas Strip and the convention center and in the shadow of the Riviera and Encore hotel-casinos, will be a towering mixed-use resort designed to appeal to convention-goers, according to Doumani.
