The Rooms at City of Dreams (Photos)

MacauTripping photo contributor Ace Macau tipped us off to a blog post that contains a slew of photos of City of Dreams hotel offerings.

It kinda looks like the photos were taken during a hard hat tour of the property before it opened. Interesting stuff.

Here's the link

Sorry Chuck i keep coming back looking for news you still there?

Sector Snap: Casinos mixed on June Macau results
18 hours ago
NEW YORK (AP) — Shares of casino operators with Macau properties were mixed Wednesday on disappointing monthly gaming revenue results.
June gaming revenue fell 17 percent compared with a year ago, according to media reports. It was also a bigger decline than the 10.2 percent drop-off in May.
JPMorgan's Joseph Greff said in a client note that the Chinese enclave's gaming revenue results continue to be hurt by soft economic conditions, a tighter credit environment and travel restrictions.
Greff said he still likes Las Vegas Sands Corp., partly on its stabilizing Macau properties and the upcoming opening of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore next year. He continues to stay on the sidelines for Wynn Resorts Ltd. and Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd., saying there will likely be better entry points.
Janet Brashear of Bernstein Research said the lackluster June results stem from lower Macau visitation that was prompted by swine flu fears. She kept a "Market Perform" rating for Wynn, an "Outperform" rating for Las Vegas Sands and an "Underperform" rating for MGM Mirage.
Shares of Las Vegas Sands dipped 4 cents to $7.82, while Wynn's stock added 54 cents to $35.84 in morning trading. MGM Mirage's stock shed 2 cents to $6.37. Shares of Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd., a developer and owner of Macau casino resorts, gained 13 cents to $4.63.

Yes. still here... been working on other stuff which I haven't posted about here. That stuff being: I've redone all the maps with property boundaries and other information.

Ive also got some great info about Galaxy to share and have been working on some posts but they all fizzled out. Another project : attempting to get a hold of renderings of SJM's 'The Pearl' Cotai project.

Also, i'm purposefully not covering the details of City of Dreams because Melco Crown's PR folks have proven to be complete retards. I sincerely hope that this piece of news on my end makes all you MPEL shareholders happy.

Imagine that... a writer who actually WANTS to cover their casinos and DID cover them when they were nothing but piles of dirt is now being shunned by the company's PR bozos... at the exact time that the joint opens.

And you have stock in this company? Sell.

We've got some stuff bubbling up for next week and the week after. Hold tight.

Ahh good to see Chuck im out of Crown thankfully....i also DOUBT their claim of 1.2m visitors so far, it doesnt really stack up to what the market is saying...just marketing spin i suspect...

I agree with the sell recommendation. Went down this past weekend solely to check out the Hard Rock. The casino was a big let down, only 2 bj tables open on a saturday (7m) and no craps tables. The decor and vibe is NOTHING like the Hard Rock in Vegas. Even one of the pitbosses told me that he was a little disappointed how it turned out. The downstairs Crown casino was busy, but again, no blackjack tables to be found. They did have 2 craps tables setup although one had been reserved for a single player while the rest of us non-VIP's crammed onto the 2nd table. Dice were hot but the pitboss was rude and kept schreetching to throw the dice when they hadn't even been passed to the roller.
The Melco guys have a long way to go to figure out how to handle the mass-market crowds.
