That Casino Cost How Much?
Lest we forget though, let’s remember that “losers” built these wonders. Las Vegas thrives off of losers. We can all be thankful for all the losers who made it possible for us to be wowed by the great hotels. If we are honest, most of us have been losers in Vegas at one time or another.
So, just how much does it cost to build a modern hotel and casino in Las Vegas? We will list some of the newer hotels and their building costs to satisfy your curiosity.
Six years ago, in 2010, the record was 2.7 billion dollars. This was the price for building the Wynn. That translates in 2014 dollars to 3.6 billion dollars.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reported in 2014 the following figures for hotel building costs. As you can see they ain’t cheap. The price tags have been adjusted for inflation as of 2014. Not much inflation since that time so still pretty accurate:
- Cosmopolitan, $4.18 billion
- Wynn Las Vegas, $3.26 billion
- Bellagio Hotel, $2.3 billion
- The Palazzo, $2.05 billion
- MGM Grand, $1.62 billion
