The history of Las Vegas is full of unusual and amusing facts, connected mainly with the largest hotels of the city. Many visitors pay attention to the steady aroma of coconut in the lobby of some hotels, or some grandmother’s perfume at the ”Venetian” hotel. However, if you ask the hotel staff whether these fragrances are sprayed artificially, you will be told that they do not. However, a short investigation showed that this is not true. As it is known, in Chinese culture, number ”4” is considered unlucky. And since those players who are coming from China are important for the Vegas gambling, such hotels like ”Rio” and ”Wynn” do not have floors with numeral 4, for example, 38, 39, 50, 51, etc. According to rumours, there are several ”haunted hotels” in Las Vegas.
Here are some of them: ”Luxor” (ghosts were allegedly seen in its corridors and rooms), ”Flamingo” (there are eyewitnesses who claim to have seen the ghost of gangster Bugsy Siegel at sunset in the garden next to his former apartment), ”Bally’s” (during the fire in 1980, 84 people died there), ”Las Vegas Hilton” (the ghost of Elvis Presley was seen in the hall where sang), ”Bellagio” (an actor, Justin Pearce, committed suicide there in 2000, hanging himself in one of the rooms), ”Hard Rock” (a legendary bass player of the ”Who” band, John Entwistle, died here in 2002) and ”Stratosphere” (despite the alarm and security service of Vegas, four people committed suicide by jumping off of a more than 1,000-foot tower). A copy of the Eiffel Tower, in Las Vegas, is made of welded steel and all the rivets are not real, but are made for maximum resemblance to the original.
