  • The Largest Resort on the Las Vegas Strip that NO ONE can Visit
    Hey everyone! In this video, we are going to be talking about the largest resort on the Las Vegas Strip that NO ONE can visit, The Fontainebleau. Otherwise known as The Drew, this 63 story casino resort is an Urban Explorers paradise! This Abandoned Place was left to rot after the 2007-2008 subprime mortgage crisis. In this video, we are going to be discussing what happened to this immaculate resort, and why it failed to open after being 70 percent complete.
    Very few Urbex Enthusiasts have been able to get video of the inside of this resort. Unfortunately, I am not one of the few who have been able to see the inside of the resort. Fortunately for you though, in this video I have put videos of people exploring this abandoned place! This Abandoned Resort is absolutely amazing on the inside, so make sure to watch THIS video to see what the inside looks like!
    If you enjoy this type of videos be sure to let me know down in the comments below! Also, if you have any suggestions for future videos let me know! I will most likely end up making a video on it! If you enjoy Urbex/Urban Exploration Videos, or videos of people exploring abandoned places, be sure to subscribe down below! I film both exploring abandoned places videos, as well as these Urban Exploration Documentary Videos!

    Barack Obama and his recession caused the major issues for this project. Had President Trump been in the white house at that time, the economy would have been booming and this project would have been up and working a long time ago.

    Much better job with narration compared to your Lucky Dragon vid, but keep working on modulation and pacing. Still a little fast and monotone. You might even want to consider having another narrator while you do the writing and editing. Not all of us are meant to be narrators (including me). Thanks for another very interesting story.

    Thats bad karma for US economy ,devaluation foreign currency like phil pesos n other Asian currency inspite it shud not that is why everywhere in US left right bankruptcy of malls n restaurants . US shud stop manipulating countries n bullying 3rd countries n start Praying to God n Mother Mary . Even in US schools opening prayers were abolished that is why school violence happens .no one recognize the power of God Almighty in heaven , they remove statues of God Mother Mary . No religion no success . Sorry America . Be true . Go back to God n avoid racial discrimination .

    It would be a lot cheaper to build an above ground Tram unless their is already a subway to the Convention center to tie into from the new Hotel.

    When someone buys the property it will get imploded again. If Marriot is involved the rooms will be beautiful .

    Since our gov wants to be humanitarian heroes they should have turned that into apartments and help with homelessness

    • Captain Jim
      Captain Jim 3 days ago

      Hell half our Government is importing thousands to add to the homeless problem every week. This takes away money for the existing homeless and is turning LA, San Francisco and especially Seattle into what looks worse in some areas than the 3rd world country they left.

    Check out the 'redevelopment' of Tampa by Fidelity's Jeff Vinik and Bill Gates Strategic Property Partners- a Billion dollar funnel to the Lightning games? Even after Trump got sued by lending his name to the never built Trump Tower, Tampans still hunger to be let into the party...

    The el rancho was abandoned since the early 80’s and empty with no known owner. It wasn’t failing when it was purchased to build turnberry. Get your facts straight before you open your stupid mouth.

    Common practice to sell units farthest from the Strip first. That way, each new wave of sales STILL had a "View" of the Strip. As for BofA, they witheld funds in order to initiate the default so they, or their cronies could swoop in and steal it out from under the owners. A typical "Vegas Tactic". (I am a retired REO Broker and retired State of Nevada Right-of-Way Agent, so I should know)

    Vegas seems to be making a lot of bad mistakes lately!! The Monte Carlo, now The Park, took out the food court and some of the gaming?? However I did have breakfast in their new bistro and paid $35... For my plate of eggs!!!! The room decor was nothing like a French Park atmosphere. There were two pictures that bordered on Kitty porn!!! They have added charges for parking and resort fees!!!!??? They better do something, because my airline mileage points have been devalued!!! I don't think I'm going anytime soon!!!

    First Marriott on Las Vegas strip is an inaccurate statement. What began as a Hyatt, Cosmopolitan was then announced to launch new Hilton brand, Denizen. After Starwood successfully sued Hilton to block the brand, claiming corporate espionage after Hilton poached execs from W, Marriott stepped in to takeover and manage the property. Cosmo is part of the autograph collection.
