I like Oceans 13 more than I should. Not a lot of people like the movie and I’m cool with that. Every time AAA announces their 5 Diamond award winners I think of the movie (see below). To no surprise, Las Vegas was the leading market. Here’s a breakdown:
*NEW Mandarin Oriental
Wynn Las Vegas
Skylofts at MGM Grand
Ritz-Carlton at Lake Las Vegas (will be taken over by Dolce Hotels & Resorts)
Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace
Picasso and Le Cirque at Bellagio
Joel Robuchon at MGM Grand
Alex at Wynn Las Vegas
No surprise that Las Vegas lead the way. Indulgence is what makes Vegas what it is. This list often serves as a target of places I’d like to visit. Last year I was lucky enough to try out Venetian & Palazzo.
I’m hoping next year brings the other strip hotels that have casinos. If I want a nice hotel without a casino I’ll try one in another city.
