As many of you know I am a huge fan of Las Vegas. That being said I am not happy with the current trend. It was just annouced that the Luxor is undergoing a $300 million detheme-ing renovation.
Click here to read the details. I can certainly understand the casinos wanting to get rid of the kid freindly atmosphere of the 90's, but everyone is going to this hip, ultra modern feel and look. As far as I am concerned every hotel was fun to go to, however cheesy the theme was, just because they were different. Now every hotel has some hip ultra modern club or bar that looks and feels the same as every other hip and modern bar. This all started when Treasure Island changed its name to TI and got rid of the Pirate show. The sirens of TI are nice, but aren't adults entitled to a good pirate show every now and then. I just think this new ultra modern renovation of LV has taken away a lot of its creativity...rumor has it there going to take down the Sphinx in front of the Luxor.....it is a pyramid!!!, what is wrong with having an eygption theme!!! Anyways I just had to get this off my chest....next will they detheme new york new york, or paris. Alladin lost its theme, Now that it is the planet hollywood. Don't get me wrong I still love Vegas, I'm just not to excited about this current trend.
