I’ve reported before that there’s currently $30 billion’s worth of construction going on around the Las Vegas strip, with high profile hotels such as Project CityCenter, Echelon Place, Fontainebleau, Encore at Wynn and the Palazzo all under various stages of construction.

The Fontainebleau hotel and casino, currently under construction on the north end of the Las Vegas strip, has managed something few other new hotels have managed in Vegas – secrecy. Despite the fact the Fontainebleau is actually being built, nobody has seen any renderings or artists’ impressions of what the building will look like. Until […]

The Palazzo is slowly starting to take shape. The new hotel being built between The Wynn and The Venetian is set to open later this year (though more likely early next year), but for those who can’t wait to see what it looks like, here’s an artist’s impression! The main hotel is the large left […]
