like most vegas hotels it doesn't look all that great during the day but at night, wow, just wow, great lighting effect

hopefully the next generation of vegas hotel (city center, fountainebleau, cosmo, echelon etc) will look good both at night and during the day

I think the new Expo Center is already approved and it will have over 2 million sq. feet of exhibit space. They also have approval for a skywalk for the public to get to the new Expo, but it will have to go over or under the Wynn employee skywalk, so it will be interesting to see how they configure that.

New Resort with possibly 4,000-7,000 more hotel or condo keys.


New Expo Center


Site map
This expansion sucks. I do not like it. this expansion's gonna happen because the Sands Expo Center existed before the Sands passed away in 1996.

View of the Palazzo condo tower from the pool deck, it is excruciatingly slow!:

Yes, it is on hold. It will be a St. Regis hotel and residences, but construction is not expected to resume until mid to late 2009.

Agreed. Las Vegas is the tackiest city in the world. Pure architectural kitsch (with a few exceptions).

The people love it though. Tourists from around the world spend not billions but trillions of dollars here. They revel and glory in the kitsch. It's like an adult Disney World ... everything is about artifice and glitter and imaginery magic. It brings out the children in people ... they get giddy when they arrive. Everything is about flashing colors, special effects, parties, gambling, shows, and entertainment.
