The Vdara can be seen in the distance on the left.
I'm staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel which stands at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Harmon Ave. This explains where the ill-fated Harmon hotel project got its name. Harmon is the street that runs between the Cosmopolitan and the Harmon on the west side of Las Vegas Blvd. To the south of the Cosmopolitan is rest of City Center and the Monte Carlo, the latter can be reached with a short ride of the tram that connects the Bellagio, City Center's The Crystals shopping center and the Monte Carlo.

|Planet Hollywood has 2,600 rooms and suites. Above is portion of the|
resort that sites at the corner of Harmon Ave and Las Vegas Blvd.
|Marriott's Grand Chateau dominates this segment of the strip even|
though it is not located on Las Vegas Blvd. Should a mega resort rise
at the southeast corner of Harmon/Las Vegas Blvd, the hotel would
become obscured. (photo: TheHopefulTraveler)
