It's hi-tech, Euro styled.

The entire complex, City Center, is not what people expect when Americans come to Vegas. The Asians and Europeans like it a lot...both the hotels and the shopping/restaurants. The most expensive retail stores in the world are here now (in Crystals) and the restaurants are expensive and good (especially Mastro's).

The sportsbook is more a lounge than a book...although it does huge's not like Mandalay Bay, which to me gives you the best of everything in a book.

It's definetly worth staying there. If for nothing else, it's central location on the strip and high tech rooms. I stayed there for a few nights right after it opened and enjoyed it. Didn't spend a lot of recreational time in the tower but the whole complex is very cool.

Try the firecracker burger at the skybox grill, or for your viewing entertainment.  Make side bet with your friend's and bet them to finish the burger in 20 minutes or less. 

I had one during the Lakers game few days ago. It took me an hour, I had to wash it down with 1 diet coke, 3 heinekens and it felt like my face was on fire.  Every pore on your face it feels like is opened.  Then when it comes out of your behind, your sphincter feels like it's on fire.

stayed there last month. the room was amazing. however here is a crucial piece of advice: 

i am sure everyone knows by now the whole room is controlled by one remote. the problem is that if there are two off buttons: one for the whole system and one just for the tv. if you press the whole system one, everything shuts off, including the a/c. i woke up in the middle of the night dripping sweat only to find it the room had gotten up to 80 degrees. so make sure you only turn the tv off at night.

i wouldn't stay there again only because big it is too big. it is a pain to walk from and to the tram to bellagio is at the end of the hotel so it is a pain in the behind.
