vegas has a lot of very good architecture. new york new york, and the bellagio are especially nice. but i have always felt that vegas lives off the landmarks of other cities. it dosent have a proper skyline - its own skyline.

Vegas not try to be original, it is a theme park for grow up, compare it with Blackpool, Atlantie City. Personally I think Stratosphere and Fremont Street Lightshow are original landmark.

I like Bellagio the most. It's a bit more refined, and the fountains are always cool to look at. Luxor would be my 2nd favorite, and then Circus Circus for that old school charm.

That's what I was thinking too, I'm surprised it wasn't on the list. I'd really like to go there sometime, but I'm sure it costs a tonne of money

The last time I was in Vegas, I didn't see the Wynn or it's probably not yet completed! Sucks that I didn't include it on the list!

I've always liked the Luxor Hotel because it's original and the black pyramid looks really sleek.

The top of the Luxor has the world's brightest man-made light beam. In a clear night, you can even see it from the airspace above Los Angeles!

The Bellagio. It's the classiest and the fountains are incredible. I really admire Las Vegas.

The Wynn has a show at the lounge, outdoor seating is permitted only if you buy drinks otherwise you can watch it inside by the bar although it is best viewed outdoors of course. The subtle play of light on water in the show is nice. The show changes every half an hour if Im not mistaken.

Caesars is the cream of the crop of all Vegas hotels.

Inside, I like Caesar's the best, especially with the Forum Shops connection.
Outside, I lean toward Paris because it's so wonderfully kitchy. But you cannot take Las Vegas seriously. The architecture is to attract gamblers and tourists. And it is working.
