Las Vegas is both iconic and unique, providing over 147,000 guestrooms; numerous casinos; a wide range of food, beverage, and entertainment options; shopping venues; and meeting and convention space. Overall, Las Vegas is expected to continue generating demand from local, national, and international sources at various price points. New, large-scale developments in the professional sports and entertainment fields could prove major draws as they come to fruition.
