So you maybe figured Vegas was big enough? Developers don't seem to think so. In fact, Sin City is on growth hormones. Just for starters, "CityCenter" is a new, $7 billion project being built by MGM Mirage that's a mini-city all by itself: six buildings over 67 acres, including a 4,000-room hotel, convention center, stores and condos.
Las Vegas has more new hotel rooms under construction (11,000) than any other city in the country, as well as more rooms on the drawing boards (35,000).
And more development is under way. In fact, the city has 11,000 rooms under construction, with another 35,000 in the planning stage. One example: The Venetian is building a tower with 3,200 suites. The hotel was already the sixth-bigest in the world, and with the addition, will become the world's biggest. Then there's the $4.4 billion Echelon Place about to get underway. The huge hotel, with more than 5,000 rooms, is going up on the site of the recently demolished Stardust hotel.
I'm still rather partial to inns with under 100 rooms. Anyone with me?
