    Heading to Vegas in 6 months and will be staying at the Monte Carlo for the first time. We chose it because of its location as well as the multiple fun times we have at a Diablos :wink2:

    My question, and I apologize if it has been answered, but the construction around Monte Carlo/NYNY....will it be completed by April? I have read press releases but I can only find "completed early next year". Also, should we purchase the "high floor strip view rooms"? I have read where you want to be above the 15th floor for a good view. While we won't be spending tons of time in the room I still appreciate a nice room and view.

    Thanks for any replies, haven't been back in 2 years since my brother was married at Ceasars. Traveling with at least 6 people this year for a kind of wedding party reunion.

    Yes, so far all they are saying is "early 2014" for when the new pedestrian walkway will be open. There doesn't seem to be too much to actually build, mostly just some clearing space, renovating and landscaping so they should have it done on time.

    I don't think they have started on the arena they were planning back there, that'll probably take some time to build though.

    As for the high floor strip view rooms: thats the room they were giving us as part of the Mlife Gold "free room upgrade" and the rooms are fine and you do get a good view of The Strip, for what you can see from the angle of Monte Carlo.

    Thank you very much. Appreciate the quick reply. I think we will just go for it hoping the walkway will be done by April. Like you said, it doesn't look like much to actually build. Looking forward to the new walkway, looks to match or flow with the properties next door.

    I'll be there tomorrow night to check it out for you.

    I've stayed at Monte Carlo at least 10 times. I like it. I hope they don't f--k it up any more than they have. That being wrecking the classy front facade with Diablo's, doing away with the brewery, and changing the rules on what was formerly the best shoe BJ game on the Strip.

    Is there construction going on at the Monte Carol? We received an email with a good rate, but didn't want to stay there if it was going to be a hassle.

    Thanks!

    When I was there last month, construction was no problem at all.

    There is construction but not inside the building... only out front.
    Go to Vegaschatter.com to see some photos.

    Construction is not an issue, it is contained to the front of the hotel.

    Yes between Monte Carlo and NYNY they are doing $100 million in construction/expansion out front.

    Shops and stuff. According to articles in Nov/Dec of 2013 it is going to open in the spring but no set timetable of what month.

    Vegaschatter.com keeps up with the happenings in Vegas and you may want to read through there occassionally to see where things stand.

    Will be staying at Monte Carlo this Thursday. I know the pizza place is opening this Friday and Double Barrel is already open but I have been unable to find any recent pictures of construction out front. I visit vegaschatter daily and have seen pictures of the new restaurants but nothing on the construction out front. Can anyone that has stayed their recently or visited NYNY/Monte Carlo update me on the construction out front? Or if someone has any pictures that would be great too. Appreciate any updated info, thanks!

    I really like seeing what they have done to bring this place up to date...we stayed here on our second trip back in 1997, and have stayed 2 more times since...and now are booked for June...very happy with the decision to stick with this property! Maybe we will finally try Andre's at least for happy hour...or brandy and Cigars after dinner...

    anyone know if there is VP at the new roadhouse bar?
