Louie Anderson Tells The Wall Street Journal What It's Like To Live In CityCenter

November 15, 2012 at 8:40 PM | by | ()

Meandering by CityCenter, we've often wondered just who lives in those over-priced high-rises that surround Aria. We've heard a few names, but now Louie Anderson can be officially added to the list.

The rotund comic penned a piece for the Wall Street Journal that describes his life of living in a Vegas hotel. He refers to CityCenter, but doesn't get more specific than that. Any Vegas aficionado, however, can read in between the lines to discover just which one of those towers -- Mandarin Oriental, Veer or Vdara -- he calls home. Especially, when you check out the photo of his view.

So, what are the best parts of living in a Vegas hotel? For Anderson, it's unlimited free cappuccinos and 24-hour room service. Including the ability to get ice cream at 2 a.m.

judging by the view

Looks like the Mandarin to me...


If you read the article, it is clearly Mandarin.

It is ironic that he leaves one of the top hotels in the city to go to his "job" at Palace Station.

I've looked into high-rise living but a couple of things concerned me:

  1. The noise (which he mentioned). I live close-in on West Sahara and the faint roar of the I-15 and tour helicopters is fine. But the constant drumbeat of The Strip could be a bit much.

  2. It seems so closed in. I'm spoiled to have a good-sized yard and enjoy stepping out for fresh air.

But... if one is accustomed to and wants a hotel lifestyle, this sounds like the way to go!
