Vegas hotels used to be a thing of, well, gaudy cheesiness! Circus Circus, Excalibur, and even, to some degree, the huge black pyramid that is the Luxor, all scream novelty at you, and don’t exactly make the place look upmarket.
All that’s changing now, though, and fast. The more recent hotels, from the Bellagio onwards, have all gone progressively upmarket, and newer ones, such as The Wynn and the new hotels under construction, are all top-class 5 star establishments with stunning designs.
This sense of upmarketness is brought dramatically home by these stunning pics I managed to take in April from my room at Circus Circus. The day itself was cold and windy, and there was even rain (it felt just like home in the UK, in fact!), but the payback was the glorious sunset gleaming off the Wynn, with dramatic rolling clouds lending an almost mystical quality to the construction work going on at The Palazzo, Wynn Encore and Echelon Place.
In Vegas, it seems, even the construction sites are glorious!
