Louis XIII Holdings Limited has officially changed the name of its Macau hotel property into The 13. The Hong Kong-based company announced the possible name change by the end of February, when the establishment had the working title Louis XIII. After the change was officialised, Louis XIII Holding Limited became The 13 Holdings Limited and had its stock changed from Louis XIII H to The 13 Holdings too.
Aside from the name, the company also changed its logo and introduced a new solution that will better reflect the new title of the Cotai project.
According to company filings, the newly renamed The 13 is expected to open its doors for visitors in late summer 2016, but it probably won’t feature the previously mentioned casino gaming floor. Experts found a possible reason for this change of heart in the need to utilise casino rights of one of the gaming hub’s six concession holders. So far, the previously named Louis XIII Holdings hasn’t named a gaming partner.
As company representatives revealed many times before, The 13 aims to become a top choice for those that search ultra-luxury Macau accommodations. Latest releases showed that the average construction cost for a single room was about $7 million and that the firm spend over $1.4 billion for room construction only. The all-villa hotel will have a total of 200 accommodation units, fine dining restaurants, bars, exclusive shops and even an art gallery.
The 13 received the keys to 30 Extended Wheelbase Rolls-Royce Phantoms at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show on March 2. The cars were specially engineered for The 13.
