City Center Las Vegas NV

City Center Las Vegas NV is also referred to as the 'future of Sin City' and for good reason. It's also where you can find some of the best five star Las Vegas hotels.

It's now hard to believe that when Las Vegas City Center NV was still in its construction stages it was touch and go for a while as to whether it would be completed or become another casualty of the recession.

Thankfully, the massive project opened on 16th December 2009, based on the site that used to be home to the Boardwalk Hotel and Casino.

Where is it?

You can find Las Vegas City Center between Harmon Avenue and LV Boulevard dwarfing the Monte Carlo and the Bellagio.

It cost $11 billion to create and was designed by four of the world's top architects. City Center Las Vegas NV is in fact the largest privately funded development in America. The project was started by MGM Mirage who were joined by Dubai World.

There are some fabulous City Center Las Vegas Hotels:

Aria Las Vegas

The Aria Resort and Casino contains 4,004 rooms and a 150,000 sq ft casino. This is the only casino you'll find in Las Vegas City Center as it places a heavier emphasis on shopping, hotels and leisure rather than gambling.

Vdara Las Vegas

Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas

The Mandarin Oriental is a luxurious hotel which has been endowed with a prestigious AAA five diamond award and for good reason. If you need to relax their spa is second to none.

Veer Towers

You can’t miss the Veer Towers. The twin towers which contain residential units look like they’re about to topple over, leaning in opposite directions.

Harmon Hotel

The Harmon Hotel has been put on indefinite hold after running in to some construction issues. It was intended to have 400 hotel rooms and over 200 condos and although the exterior was completed in 2009 it is now likely to be demolished by 2012.

What about shopping and entertainment?

As you'd expect, there's a number of eateries in the development. Have a look at our restaurant directory to decide where you might like to eat.

How big is the Center?

City Center Las Vegas NV is large enough to warrant a number of support structures. The City Center parking garage holds 6,900 cars and the Center also has its own Fire Station. The taxi driver who picked us up from the airport pointed out its huge power box!

To give you some idea of the scale of Las Vegas City Center, the site's 76 acres and is expected to provide at least 12,000 jobs. It’s so big that it’s easy to get lost in. It took us a while to find our way out from Crystals. So allow plenty of time to explore it properly!
