A Little History:

City of Dreams was originally supposed to be the worlds first "underwater casino" with walls made of aquatic tanks, waterfalls, streams and other water features. The idea proved to be untenable and was scrapped. Construction of City of Dreams began in 2006 and was opened on June 1, 2009. The property cost $2.1 billion dollars to build. City of Dreams was second megaresort to open on the Cotai Strip, following the Venetian Macao.

Hotel Rooms:

City of Dreams has three (soon to be four) separate hotels as part of the complex - the Hard Rock Macau, Crown Towers and Grand Hyatt hotels. Each hotel has a very distinct style and clientele with Hard Rock targeting younger travelers, Grand Hyatt mid market customers and Crown Towers focusing on the higher end of the market.

Not Rated

No craps table upstairs in the Hard Rock last time i was there. Also, only one bj table running on a friday night. Lacks the same vibe that the Hard Rock vegas has....but then again so do all the other Macau casinos. Heading back down in a couple weeks time for a 'redo'.

eh. a 3.

I should give a second rating for the Hard Rock casino on the second floor. Good vibe, friendly staff, and cute girls in a dynamite corset type belts.
