Expert Review

After a jaw-dropping $1 billion makeover, the Fontainebleau re-emerged in November 2008 as a major convention player but with far more sparkle than the average business hotel. The abundant chandeliers and black bow-tie patterned marble floors evoke the 1954 Morris Lapidus-designed original, a legendary Rat Pack hangout; but the supersized 1,504 rooms, each equipped with a 20-inch iMac; 11 spacious eateries (including haute choices Hakkasan, Scarpetta, and Gotham Steak); and 30,000-square-foot, voyeuristic, DJ-driven nightclub (you can see the entire venue from nearly every corner of the space); is 21st-century Vegas showmanship all the way.
