Built in 1969 by Kirk Kerkorian, the hotel opened originally as the International Hotel. When it opened, the International was the largest hotel in the world. Barbra Streisand was the opening-night performer. Later that year, Elvis Presley performed for 58 consecutive sold out shows, breaking all Vegas attendance records.
In Diamonds Are Forever, the International Hotel served as the exterior of The Whyte House. Shortly after this, the hotel was bought by the Hilton Group and it was renamed the Las Vegas Hilton. Liberace
was its main performer during the 70s.
In 2012, the hotel became the LVH (Las Vegas Hotel & Casino) and two years later it was bought by Westgate Resorts.
