Looking since 2008, we have seen a large number of rooms added to the strip. Encore, Aria, Cosmo, Vdara, Mandarin, Palazzo, PH towers (used to be anyway), and a few additions to existing hotels. Each new hotel averages roughly 2,500 rooms, making about 18,000 additional room son the strip in four years. So, are there really that many more visitiors coming to Las Vegas since the downturn of the economy? Its seems like everytime I go to Vegas on weekends, most major hotels are near or at capacity. Anyone else wonder about this?
