This is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms. It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows, a number of restaurants, ... The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions (recreational destinations, Golf courses, ...). You are to reserve your hotel room directly by calling Monte Carlo Resort at 1-702-730-7000 or 1-702-730-7777. Make sure that you mention the Group Code "XWRLD8" (XWRLD8 is the keyword that the hotel will use to handle the reserved block of rooms for the Congress). You should reserve your room as soon as possible since our block is very close to being fully booked. There are also many other hotels nearby.
