  1. That area is so unpopular with tourists with the Circus Circus across the street. I highly doubt it will do well. This is where the Algiers Hotel was back in the day. Good luck Marriott. I wouldn’t stay there. Too many better options than the North Strip. That area has always been cursed.

  2. @Danny, actually it’s turning around. The same company is rumored to be buying the SLS (which they recently turned a part of into a W hotel) and the newly built Lucky Dragon. My guess is MGM will invest some cash into Circus Circus at some point, but right now its a huge cash cow for them since it’s paid off. The only major blow to that area was the replacement of the Riviera with a parking lot… such a waste of space.
