Connecting People to Place

HBG Design

HBG Design has been pioneering the creation of imaginative and transformative guest experiences for more than 40 years. As a Top 5 hospitality and entertainment design firm in the U.S., HBG’s team of 100 architects, interior designers and building professionals in Memphis, Tennessee and San Diego, California share a passion for making design stories come to life by shaping physical space and connecting people to place.

HBG Design translates market influences, brand, culture, original storytelling, sustainability and wellness concepts into inspired hospitality and entertainment design for its esteemed clients. These include commercial hospitality and entertainment giants such as Caesars Entertainment, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Hyatt Hotels and Hilton Hotels, and more than 45 Indian gaming enterprises.

As the industry collectively navigates a new era of wellness and safety needs, HBG Design is at the forefront in the development of creative design solutions that will lead to overall healthier and safer environments for guests. The HBG Design team has been steadily working with its clients to reimagine the casino and hotel experience through innovative design strategies where the first touchpoint for every guest provides a sense of well-being, both physically and mentally.

HBG Design’s in-house team of architects and interior designers work side by side to approach hospitality and entertainment design as a collaborative, cohesive process, as showcased in the firm’s recent and upcoming project openings. Each design brings to life a vibrant concept uniquely tailored to the owner’s specific vision.

The new 1.2 million-square-foot Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Resort in Glendale, Arizona offers guests a multi-sensory experience rooted in the inspiration of the dynamic Sonoran Desert landscape. On the 75,000-square-foot casino floor, dozens of illuminated overhead fins dazzle with sparkling colors whenever a jackpot is hit. Among the amenities are five uniquely designed restaurants and two eye-catching feature bars—the Edge Bar and the two-story Rock Bar.

At Sycuan Casino Resort in El Cajon, California, the firm’s $226 million, 500,000-square-foot expansion features a 300-room hotel tower and striking new casino and F&B amenities, creating an array of revenue-generating opportunities that fulfill a need for more distinct cross-generational experiences.

In the coming months, HBG Design eagerly anticipates project openings of the Oaklawn Racing and Gaming hotel and casino expansion in Hot Springs, Arkansas, the 459-room hotel and casino expansion at Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks, California and the new Canopy by Hilton hotel in Memphis, Tennessee.
