The economic downturn put Las Vegas at the epicenter of a foreclosure crisis that’s sent home values plummeting. But the city remains an oasis of excess, and new development continues apace: The $11 billion, 67-acre CityCenter complex and the 500,000-square-foot Crystals luxury shopping center cement Las Vegas’ reputation as a Mecca for spending.
Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, The Hotel and the Four Seasons Hotel When Cosmoprof touches down at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, it will be next to one of the most eclectic threesomes of hotel properties in Las Vegas. With 2,000-plus slots and video poker machines, the Mandalay Bay is the only hotel among the three with a casino. To help cope with the Las Vegas heat, the hotel has an aquatic recreation area with a wave pool, lazy river, three swimming pools and 2,700 tons of sand. There’s also a shark reef aquarium with more than 2,000 animals. Understated by comparison, The Hotel provides a modern boutique hotel experience and the Four Seasons lives up to its luxury reputation. The Bathhouse at The Hotel is a contemporary spa with 14,000 square feet of slate walls, marble floors, waterfalls and exotic baths. (3950 & 3960 Las Vegas Boulevard South)

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
