Monte Carlo or bust!

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by garymarsh6 on June 24, 2013

Monte Carlo hotel.

Originally built in between the Newyork NewYork hotel and the Bellagio it is now flanked and significantly dwarfed by the Aria and Cosmopolitan hotels to the side and behind.

The theme for this hotel is based on the famous casino in Monte Carlo. The Place du Casino Monaco is replicated at the front of the hotel. Inside it appears very grand indeed with large crystal chandeliers marble flooring and fountains dotted around the floor of the casino. It appears very grand and ostentatious.

The hotel opened its doors to the public in June 1996 and has 2,992 guest rooms. The top of the building houses an exclusive hotel called Hotel32 which is reached by a separate lift and has 50 suites as well as personal suite assistant to pamper to your every whim. Here you are provided with an Iphone so that you can make all kinds of arrangements from booking dinner to making theatre bookings to being collected or taken to the airport by a personal chauffeur.

The Casino.

The casino has a floor area of over 102,000 feet and contains 1,400 slot machines, 60 games tables and 15 poker tables. The casino does have a feeling that you are in Monte Carlo but the only thing that brings you down to earth is that the croupiers speak in American English which is a shame otherwise it would give it even more of an authentic feel to it. The hotel is situated in the middle of the strip nearer to the southern end making it an ideal base in which to explore the other hotels along the strip. The rooms appear to be quite comfortable and range from Deluxe rooms to diamond suites.

Places to eat.
There are lots of restaurants in the Monte Carlo ranging from the food court and buffet at the lower end of the price range up to and including the haute cuisine of French and Italian influence restaurants.


The Monte Carlo are currently hosting the Blueman group which is a cabaret type percussion show by a group of actors all with blue faces banging and knocking all kinds of weird instruments from old tubing to empty barrels and things. Although that sounds quite simplistic in terms of description it is quite a fascinating show.
There is a pool complex of four pools and a lazy river where you can float down the river on a giant rubber ring. You can also hire a cabana if there is a group of you staying together beside the pool area where you can get a bit more privacy rather than being with the hoi paloi.

If you are not too bothered where you stay but want somewhere clean and comfortable right in the middle of Las Vegas than this could be the hotel for you!
