    It's Asia's Las Vegas.

    In Las Vegas, the main tower alone of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas has 3,570 rooms and 642 suites.
    Las Vegas' Venetian and Palazzo each have around 4,000 rooms.

    15 of the other 25 largest hotels by room count are in Las Vegas. Only one of the top 25 (Hilton Hawaiian Village with 3,386 rooms among 7 towers) is part of a major chain. At least a couple of them (Planet Hollywood and Las Vegas Hotel) used to be members of major chains.

    It appears that this will become the 14th largest hotel in the world by room count.

    There's nothing in Macau worth HK 888!

    I can't book any room on any date on spg.com, at least at this hotel. Is anyone able to see availability or are you just getting error messages like I am.
    Does anyone know if I can take the ferry and get my luggage transferred from HKG to the ferry without going through immigration?

    If you take the ferry/hydrofoil to Macao directly from the airport, you avoid Hong Kong immigration and customs, but you might still have to do something with luggage. IIRC there are additional specific rules about connection times, etc.

    My guess is that their normal rates will be about twice this, although at major casino hotels, the concept of a normal rate might be meaningless when many receive comped rooms.
