Although there were no injuries, the fire caused severe damage to the hotel’s 32nd floor. The flames and successful fire-fighting efforts were a spectacle to behold for tourists and locals alike (See some of our free, non life-threatening Vegas attractions here).

Almost two years later, the hotel is preparing to reopen the charred floor with a boutique-style twist: 50 studios and suites offering fine amenities and exclusive service. Look for the opening of Hotel 32 toward the end of summer 2009.

Hotel 32 is just one of many changes coming to Monte Carlo. The hotel is also renovating several restaurants and adding a tram to connect the property to Bellagio and CityCenter’s Aria and Vdara.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
