Paying For Vegas With Vegas

September 20, 2013 at 2:43 PM | by | Comments (9)

We're still wishing for more specialty players club cards, but VegasChatter fan @pablomichaels has raised his love of Vegas to a whole 'nother level. And, not just his love of Sin City, but his love of Vegas carpets, if we drill down on this. His love of Wynn's carpeting, if we really hone in.

@pablomichaels, who admits to enjoying "A LOT of slot play," so loves the floor coverings in Wynn's Esplanade that he uses a photo of it as a screensaver on his phone, and also as the background for his bank card! He sent us a mock-up of what it looks like:

Can You Guess Where This Penthouse Living Room Can Be Found?

August 29, 2013 at 8:09 PM | by | Comments (4)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you say you know Vegas, but how well do you really know this town? Well enough to know exactly where this serious high-roller suite can be found?

If you think you do, then step right up and drop your answer in the comments below. Here are a few hints to get you started:

· It's not SKYLOFTS, but kinda close.

· The suite has three bedrooms, a full kitchen, a private barber's chair and a workout room.

· The hotel has its own private entrance.

· Yes, that's an iMac on the desk there.

· You should not get drunk and walk down or up the staircase. Just pass out on the couch.

We'll reveal the answer in a few days!

Can You Guess The Sportsbook?

August 15, 2013 at 8:40 PM | by | Comments (10)

It's time for another Vegas guessing game and, with all this talk about football, we thought we'd switch from rooms and casino floors to sportsbooks.

This is probably an easy one since even I was able to guess it correctly (and, if you knew the questions I ask regularly about sports and subsequent posts I inspire, you'd be completely impressed by that), but I thought I'd share this photograph if only for the shock value. Yes, this is an actual sportsbook still in operation, and not a photo from Vegas past. Do you know where it can be found? And, for extra credit, can you tell us where we were when we captured this vantage point?

Leave your best guesses below and we'll post the official answer soon.

Can You Guess The Vegas Casino?

August 7, 2013 at 4:20 PM | by | Comments (15)

The answer is now in the comments below!

In our attempt to stump you, we've traveled to Vegas past, ventured off Strip, whizzed through the loo, and hung around suites with sex swings. (Hey, anything for the job.)

Will this one do what all others haven't yet? Can you name the Vegas casino? And, yep, this photo is the only clue you get. You're way too smart for us as we've now learned! Leave your best guess below!

Can You Name The Hotel Room From Vegas Past?

August 2, 2013 at 7:21 PM | by | Comments (13)

We love taking time to reminisce about Vegas Past so you know we geeked out when these two images found their way to our inbox. Look at that starry wallpaper, that scalloped valance and check out that hallway of the painted plants. They don't make 'em like they used to, do they?

After you take a moment to take it all in, we want to know -- where was this? Show off your knowledge of Lost Vegas by naming the hotel below. Bonus points if you can get even more detailed then that!

Guess The New Casino Carpets

June 17, 2013 at 3:08 PM | by | Comments (7)

ANWERS INSIDE!

While several hotel renovation projects are ripping known brands down to concrete and steel, other resorts are going for more subtle changes. Recently, two VegasChatter fans let us know about new casino carpets going in. Can you guess where they are by simply viewing images of the new designs?

Since all of you are Vegas smartypants, we won't give you any clues other than one hotel is on the Strip and one is off. That may already be saying too much. Think you can solve this newest VegasChatter mystery? Leave your best guesses below and we'll give you the answer later this week. And, special thanks to Mark S. and Andy S. for the tips!

Can You Guess The Off Strip Hotel Room?

March 26, 2013 at 6:09 PM | by | Comments (4)

There are folks who say they know Vegas and then there are those who really know Vegas. Put your Vegas IQ to the test by telling us where to find the off-Strip hotel room pictured in this post. And, to make it even harder, that's the only clue you get -- off Strip. Think it over and put your best guess in the comments below. We'll share the answer on Friday.

And, no matter your Vegas know-how, we want to hear from you. If you have something you'd like to share about Vegas, from a must-know survival strategy to just a plain ol' Vegas rant, here's how to fill us in:

Do You Know The Newly Remodeled Hotel?

January 9, 2013 at 11:54 PM | by | Comments (6)

Ok, all you Vegas smarty pants. We've got what, we think, might be a tough one for you. Newly remodeled hotel accommodations that you may not have heard about yet. Or, if you have, actually seen. Take a close look at the renovated room above and then leave your best guess as to the hotel that claims it below. Need some clues first? Here are a few:

●This hotel is not on the Strip.
●The renovation is part of a multi-million dollar refresh that also included the casino floor. (We won't say how much lest you try to Google it!)
●More locals than tourists head here.
●It has just two dining spots.

Know The Loo With Attitude?

November 8, 2012 at 5:20 PM | by | Comments (3)

It's probably one of those only in Vegas things. When your stop at a hotel comes with advice to check out the loo. In downtown, it's the piece of the Berlin Wall found inside a men's restroom at Main Street Station. Just off the Strip, it's the bathroom that mocks those brave enough to line up at urinals inside LVH. On the Strip, it's the floor-to-ceiling windows found in the bathroom stalls of Mix Lounge at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay.

But, do you know the loo shown above that offers a bit of potty humor of its own? We won't give out too many clues, but can tell you that this mouthy stall can be found on The Strip in a restaurant that loves its pints. Leave your best guess below. We'll post the answer in a few days.

11.12 Update: The answer has been posted down in the comments!

Speaker City Coming To The Linq?

September 27, 2012 at 12:53 PM | by | Comments (0)

Caesars Entertainment has a big announcement scheduled for October 1, which also happens to be the first day of the Global Gaming Expo (aka, G2E). At first we thought that the big announcement from Caesars would be the rebranding of Imperial Palace as The Quad, but that cat's out of the bag. So what's the big news?

Frank: "[out of breath] We're... We're going streaking…! We're going up the quad and to the gymnasium."

Can You Guess The Stalled Hotel Project?

June 19, 2012 at 1:58 PM | by | Comments (5)

Fountaine-Bust and Echelon grab all the attention as the biggest busts on the Strip not scheduled for demolition that remain from glory days gone past, but they'd probably be happy to share the spotlight some.

Las Vegas Sands wrapped their rascal last year while the Sahara is a dinosaur with dreams plans for a rebirth. There is competition still sitting out there, though, waiting for salvation, too.

The stalled project pictured above has gotten so little attention we had to rack our brains to figure out what it was destined to be. How many other readers have forgotten or never even knew what the future once held for this construction site?
