More Details on New Frontier's Replacement Montreux

Liz Benston at the Las Vegas Sun has a piece on Phil Ruffin's replacement for the New Frontier "Montreux". Here's an excerpt to whet your appetite.

Montreux's interior - a mix of glass artwork, waterfalls and reflective surfaces - resembles the hip, boutique hotels of New York and Los Angeles, or the latest of Las Vegas' posh ultralounges.

But instead of mountain scenery and yodelers, the Montreux will feature a lobby with a massive chandelier dipping into a giant vase of water. The design may surprise Las Vegas regulars who patronize the older properties at the north end of the Strip and have grown accustomed to the New Frontier's 1970s-era interior and Western theme.

Reflecting the Strip's diminishing dependence on gambling, less than 2 percent of the property - about 100,000 square feet of the resort's 6 million square feet - will feature casino games. More than a half-million square feet of retail space will put the property in a league with the biggest malls in town.

Sounds like the same old new stuff. Kinda wish Ruffin would sell the joint to get some new blood in there.
