Las Vegas to add two million hotel rooms

"Las Vegas Strip will become irrelevant" 

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- No sooner had the paint dried on the Wynn Again Hotel, the new $3.7 billion luxury hotel and casino resort located on the Las Vegas Strip, than Steve Wynn announced his intention to build an enormous hotel and casino complex just a few miles northwest of the Strip that will literally cast shadows on every major hotel and casino in the city. Even in Las Vegas, a town not known for subtlety or restraint, this project has been getting plenty of buzz.


The new hotel-casino-resort complex will be on a scale that is so large that it is difficult to even imagine. By any standards, it will be huge, covering nearly 823,000 acres with accommodations for over 6 million guests.

Tentatively named "The World - Las Vegas," construction is expected to begin this fall with the first of 16 phases to be completed in six years. (Phase One is shown here in an artist's rendering.)

In an exclusive interview with Err Travel, Wynn said, "To give you an idea of the scale of this project, we will employ a staff of full-time atmospheric forecasters who issue twice-daily weather updates just for the hotel lobby."

Indeed, when completed, The World will dwarf anything else within miles, and in a tone of both confidence and hubris Wynn added, "Ten years from now, the Las Vegas Strip will become irrelevant."
