I agree wholeheartedly with Wynn, Jay Sarno is more deserving of hero worship than him, but like he said many newcomers to Vegas don't know the history. I guess its like many things in life that there was always someone before that truly made the path. A lot of the stuff Vegas has done today is been there done that in the 60's by Sarno. There is no doubt in my mind Sarno's Caesars Palace and its history of events over its 40 plus years easily makes it the greatest hotel not just in Vegas but in the world. Now I'm strictly speaking of it's history, certainly Wynn's hotels look nicer, but none of them come close to the history of Caesars. I think if Sarno was still living he would have produced products that even exceed Wynn's. Back in the early 70's Sarno had a concept, of which only the Sarno family still have plans of, called the Grandissimo that essentially took the granduer of the original Caesars to the next level. As I recall it had 6000 rooms and massive fountains, again the vision of Sarno who saw where this town was going 20 years before it happened with a concept that even today hasn't been matched.
