The highly anticipated Fontainebleau Las Vegas that cost $3.7 billion and was 23 years in the making is set to open this winter.
Standing at 67-stories tall, the new palace comes complete with seven swimming pools, 36 restaurants and bars, as well a private club on the top floor.
Real estate mogul Jeffrey Soffer acquired the land in 2000 but lost control of the project during the financial crisis in 2008.
After the land changed hands twice more, Soffer, the former husband of Elle Macpherson, managed to reacquire the still unfinished building in 2021 for a fraction of the original cost.
Slated to open on December 13, the 3,644 room hotel will be the tallest building on the Vegas strip.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Soffer, who is worth $1.7B, said: ‘It’s one of the great, crazy stories in real estate. There’s always one crazy one in your career. This is definitely it.’
With room prices starting at $300 per night, this is the second Fontainebleau location following the expansion of the Miami Beach location.
Once inside, guests will have immediate access to registration and can go directly to their rooms without having to pass through the casino.
The rooms and suites come with a color palette of blue and silver water tones with dashes of coral-pink.
Silver-grey wood veneer, silver-leaf details, pearlescent shagreen inlaid surfaces, and Arabescato marble define the case-goods and other hard surfaces.
While custom brass bowtie shaped drawer-pulls represent a nod to Fontainebleau’s history.
The rooms also feature custom carpeting in a linear, art-deco pattern of dove-grey and shades of blue.
Bookings are now open for the palace, with rates in the first week exceeding $500 per night before dropping to around $340 per night.
Soffer also told Travel and Leisure to expect the ‘mold to be shattered’ at Fontainebleau with a Casino stretching to over 150,000 square under 42-foot high ceilings.
The gaming area will be crowned with a 80-feet-wide and 60-feet-tall chandelier composed of bowtie shaped glass columns.
Beyond the pool, wellness takes center stage within the 14,000-square-foot fitness center and 55,000-square-foot Lapis Spa.

The facilities will feature 44 treatment rooms, a salt cave, an herbal inhalation room, and multiple saunas.
The Fontainebleau will be one of the closest hotels to the city’s convention enter, bringing with it business guests.
Guests will have access to most of the property through a bank of elevators, with Soffer saying his loyal and wealthy customers aren’t interested in going from one casino to another, telling Bloomberg: ‘Money doesn’t walk.’
Fontainebleau Development President Brett Mufson said: ‘The opening of Fontainebleau Las Vegas marks a significant milestone in our company’s legacy, as we look to create an era-defining moment in Las Vegas history,’

In 1967, Soffer’s father Donald, now 90, bought an undeveloped plot of marshland in Miami-Dade County for $6million.
The area was originally named Turnberry – the name of the family business – but was later changed to the Spanish word Aventura, which means adventure.
Donald ultimately developed the swampland north of Miami into Aventura, a high-end community.
