Revolutionary, confusing, brilliant. In a city of hotels, it wasn't just a hotel, and it wasn't the hotel... it was THEhotel.

Sayonara THE.

Let's us hope Lion Incorporated has the viral marketing brains enough to take the "tel" down next.

Big thanks to VT superphriend Jester122 for the tweet tip!

I hope so as well. I have a great shot somewhere of Planet Ho

End of an era, indeed. Was it not THEHotel that began the trend of de-themed hotels in Vegas? Seem to remember reading articles at the time openly asking if that was the way to go in Vegas(!). They were said to be gunning for business travelers (perhaps for the Mandalay convention facility?) in a way that LVS has since excelled at.
