A Little About Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo was designed with a European resort theme. The color scheme is soft and understated and there are plenty of arches, columns and fountains to go around. The guest rooms, of which there are about 3,000, are a little disappointing for a hotel whose outward appearence would lead you to believe that it's as nice as Bellagio or Paris. They're smallish compared to the recent crop of Center Strip hotels and the walls are pretty thin. (Unfortunately, I found this out the hard way...) At 90,000 square feet, the casino is large, but laid out in a strightforward manner that makes it easier than most to find your way around. The sports book is small and spartan, and serious sports gamblers should head across the street to MGM. Monte Carlo is connected to Bellagio by a convenient, free tram.

The table gaming at Monte Carlo is surprisingly good. $5 tables are available at all but the most crowded times. They even have two deck blackjack and single zero roulette, which is as player-friendly as you're likely to find in the neighborhood. The crowd at Monte Carlo is upper middle class, upper middle age. You won't see many people getting boozed up and wild here, but you also won't see thinly-veiled pros making moves on wasted young rich guys like you do at Mandalay Bay.
