I dont like foreign companies buying into the Vegas market.
My first thought is that a new casino where the unfinished echelon
project is will be good for las vegas, but will another 3,500 rooms will
that hurt the market. George J. Tulsa OK
New casinos in Vegas is always good, but best news is more rooms
means better deals for us visitors. Build it faster. Jane
I think it is fantastic that Genting Group bought the Echelon
property. We the people are tired of looking at all that metal standing
there and it looks terrible. I have been coming to Vegas the past
fifteen years at least five times a year and tired at looking at that
eye sore. Ruth Stolz Cudahy, WI
Any time that there is more competition anywhere, that is usually a
boon to the consumer. So, sure, why not add new rooms to the market
which should give they buyer a better opportunity to get better prices.

I think it's great! Asia is becoming more of the center of the
world, and Las Vegas should reflect this. Jim Douglas
Interesting, but does not interest me. I am sure they know the asian
market better than I do. I wish them luck. Bill Mandich

I think it was great it was sold now they need to do something with
that harmon tower tragedy near the strip wendy garner
I think it is grand. When they get done with Echelon they can buy
Fontainebleau and finish it. Maybe then the bean counters will loosen
the slots to try to fill all of the rooms. Priceless. Howard
What is this going to do to the asian market for the other casinos.
Nice to have the complex completed. Maybe the compatition will make the
other Casinos loosen the slots again. Last two trips to Vegas in 2012
was real bad. I love Las Vegas and it is the only place I take several
days vacation to visit. Hope the new complex is people friendly for all
and hope it does not have the asian look like the Imperal Palace did.
