Just got back from Vegas, the scale of this hotel is amazing. In the past you could look at Bellagio, MGM Grand, TI, etc and say wow, those are BIG. Now they don't look so impressive compared to Fontainebleau! When viewing the skyline from a distance, it's easy to pick out this hotel, and city center.

With pictures it's hard to grasp an idea of the true scale of this building!

But it should look MASSIVE in real life!

It doesn´t... I don´t know why but altough Vegas has many high skyscrapers they don´t really look high... but they look impressive.. but I think its because of the size of each building... look at the luxor hotel with the pyramide... it has over 110m, but it look as it had 60m... or even less... but when you go into the building you see how big it is...

Also, if you look at the window designs of some Vegas hotels, there are 4 rooms per 'window'. It makes you think the building is smaller than it really is. TI is a good example of this as well as Bellagio (horrible hotel) and maybe a few others. The current designs look like they try to express the size as much as possible with lots of smaller individual windows.

Because of the lawsuits, the Fontainebleau Casino Resort will never open despite most of the resort being completed already.

This building is so ugly - I would really like it to be demolished. It is an eyesore.

Lawsuits are all eventually settled. This will open. Noone would put that much money into the structure to let it sit unfinished forever.
