Hotel 32 to rise from the ashes of Monte Carlo fire

livingroom4In January 2008, the top floor of the Monte Carlo Hotel went up in flames as a result of a welding incident. 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.

    My wife and I stayed at the Monte Carlo a month after the fire we were very well looked after and had a great time.We weren,t sure there was a fire because our friends here in the UK told us about it and we thought they were winding us up but fortunately despite it being true the Monte Carlo did a great job getting it up and running in such a short space of time and saving uor holiday. Good luck with Hotel 32
