For meetings and events, the hotel offers 200,000 square feet of event space. Additional amenities include a Spa, Wedding Chapel, Fitness Center, pool and recreation deck, shopping and tennis facilities.

Guests can enjoy a variety of entertainment options, including the extraordinary Barry Manilow or the hotel’s newest show, Sin City Bad Girls, a super sexy, rockin’ topless revue in the Shimmer Showroom, featuring a cast of eight gorgeous dancers.
