Fontainebleau Las Vegas

World famous for its ritzy and action-packed casinos, non-stop nightlife and remarkable hotels, Vegas is one of the most visited and popular destinations all year long. Whether you are travelling with friends, a partner, your family or solo there's literally never a lack of things to do in Sin City. North Strip in Vegas is the most popular area in the city for all things Vegas. Currently there are may new projects in the works at this part of strip worth billions of dollars. One recent and exciting confirmed new project is the design and construction of Fontainebleau Las Vegas which will be located between the Riviera and and the Las Vegas Tower and directly across the strip from Sky and Maxim. It has an estimated opening in 2009. Fontainebleau Las Vegas is planning on building a 63 story luxury hotel and casino encompassing 3,889 suites, hotel rooms and condo units and will feature a 100,00 square foot casino. Fontainebleau Las Vegas is leaving behind the concept of theme-based hotels as are most new projects in the city and going forward on a new frontier of modern design and architecture that can be seen in the newer Las Vegas hotels today.

The original Fontainebleau Resort is located in Miami Beach and was designed by architect Morris Lapidus in the early 1950's. He has designed more than 250 hotels around the world in his flourishing career and has been known for his post-modern style of design. Fontainebleau resort is a hotel chain, which caters to an older crowd with their regular clientele between the ages of 30 to mid-60's and is 'definitely for grown-ups'. The hotel's desired demographic will be resonant in their prices with three quarters of their guest-rooms expected to be priced at $300 per night.

Construction on Fontainebleau Vegas has begun on the 24.5 acres that used to be home to the Algiers and El Rancho casinos until they saw the wrecking ball. The design style of Fontainebleau Vegas will be sharp and contemporary and will include 1,000 lavish condo units (which have become really popular in the city), a 100,000 square foot casino to rival the other casino's in its midst and the usual incorporation of restaurants, clubs, spas, cocktail lounges and shops. Judging from the Fontainebleau Vegas blueprint layout the main floor area of the hotel and casino which runs parallel with the infamous strip will mostly house the resorts dining and bar areas as well as it's sure-to-be grandiose main entrance. Walking directly into the Fontainebleau Hotel guests will immediately encounter the huge expanse of the casino and toward the back the lounges, club lounges and service, coffee shop and buffet will be found. The open space blueprint shows the very top of the hotel and casino and basically illustrates what the aerial view might look like once its complete. Though the Fontainebleau Hotel isn't going to be complete until 2009 many people are already looking forward to its grand opening so they can take advantage of another new and unique Vegas hotel which will no doubt embody the rattle of dice, the swish of the cards and the click of the roulette wheel.
