City Of Lost Wages

by | Sep 28, 2006

I’m live blogging this entry from the MGM Grand on the Vegas strip. The place lives up to it’s name. According to Wikipedia, it’s the world’s largest hotel building, with 5,044 guest rooms, suites, villas and Skylofts (including 3,153 no smoking rooms).


In 2000, in an attempt to appeal to a more mature clientele, the hotel underwent a major renovation. The theme is now more of the Art Deco era of classic Hollywood and the hotel started billing itself as The City of Entertainment, a similar title given to Los Angeles.

I must say one could wander from shop to show to fine dining to gambling to the bar to the pool and so on for days. Not that it’s a healthy pursuit. I’m just saying.
