// Las Vegas, NV
Posting from Resorts World Las Vegas, which opened this past weekend.
I've stayed at hotels with no fourth floors before, but never one that skips floors 40-49 as well.
Oh! The holes in the massive LED screen on the face of the hotel are so rooms can have functional windows.
RWLV's housekeepers and custodians use Dyson cordless vacuums.
As the casino promotes cashless gambling, the hotel lobby shop couldn't accept credit cards. With cash, I paid $5.50[!!!] for a 20-ounce bottle of Coke Zero [Sugar].
RWLV's ballyhooed Famous Foods Street Eats food court was a mess. I waited 40 minutes for shen jiang bao and an hour for roast duck street tacos. It looks like you order from a tablet at each stall, but no, you can order from every stall in the food court at any stall. Visiting hordes, not enough tablets, every menu available on every tablet, not everyone aware of that fact, everyone browsing every menu before ordering, understaffed stalls, labour-intensive dishes…
Famous Foods' secret bar is well hidden.
Creator and owner of Pepita's Kitchen, Dedet de la Fuente (or 'Lechon Diva' as she’s affectionately known) quickly made her mark on Manila's local food scene with her exclusive 12-course private degustation dinners featuring her stuffed lechon creations that are commonly frequented by stars such as Martha Stewart and Adam Richman, and visited by the late Anthony Bourdain.
Why did they black out Bourdain's name?
RWLV's gym has Theraguns, and its pool deck features the only infinity-edged pool on the Strip.
What is the point of a pool that's 10 inches deep?
