Other shots of Vdara.
And, let's not forget, this is just one of the buildings of the complex: each building has it's own style.

I'm interested to see the Mandarin Oriental design however.

But this thread has nothing to do with the Burj Dubai right Ni3IS?

Sneak peak of the Mandrian.

We are talking about the interior of the citycenter project. Comparing with other towers or projects is allowed as long as the discussion stays with the interior.

I really like its interior, i dont know, but i think it was a better idea for them to make them more simplistic, stunning and modern rather than the old-fashioned themed hotels we used to see in Vegas. I like them.

Why only 8 star, why not 10 or.........just asking?

Regarding City Center, the wow effect is the complex of buildings and having a feeling of something away from Vegas and yet in the heart of Vegas. From what I have seen so far, it is very retro/modern at the same time. Anyway a welcome sight for Vegas. Elegant and hip sums up City Center.

I don't like the light show at the store front of Crystals. MGM should keep it off!!

It's hard in this thread to stick to the subject when people are asking me such things. Anyway: I'm not sure but before the burj dubai the burj al arab was the most exclusive hotel in the world (7 stars I believe ), I think it's just one star more to show that they are a little bit better than the burj al arab. Besides that, I don't think there will ever be a 10 star hotel. These ones are already an exception.

That is true. Some people on here already said these interior designs didn't wow them either. So I am not the only person on here think so.

Louis Vutton light show is AMAZING!!! I never see anything like that before. What kind of banner or screen is it?

Mandrian interior design is much better and more trendy than Vida we saw on here so far! I also really like this neat artwork of rowboats.

Awesome pictures!!! The interior of shopping mall isn't bad but I love these artworks! I am surprised to see fewer people there. Where is everyone?

I went to the Shopping very early in the morning and many people do not know that it is already open as the official opening of City Center is December 16th!!!!. That explains why there were so few people.

Somebody in the previous posts said the project lacks a wow factor. Actually he was wrong!!!! the project wows you all the way. the shopping center is spectacular. Those water twisters inside the fountain's crystal tubes are in constant movement and are dynamic, makes you wonder how they did that... the quality of the courtain wall systems used in this center is unlike anything I have seen before.

That's great to know! I have been excited about this project for long time and anxious to go there and see it myself in person.
