And the hits keep on coming:

Taxable sales in Nevada, Clark County rise - Business - ReviewJournal.com

This is the 9th straight month in a row of increasing taxable sales. Year-over-year numbers up too.

Money quote: "Virtually every major sales category in Clark County saw improvements."

Anybody still want to complain about Las Vegas' declining economy?

Where are these RISING rates? I see a ton under $50/nt.

Bally's = $35
Boulder Sta. = $18
Excalibur = $27
Fiesta = $17M
Flamingo = $28
Four Queens = $27
Golden Nugget = $47
Harrah's = $28
Hooter's = $20
Imp. Palace = $24
Hilton = $40
Luxor = $32
Mandalay Bay = $49
Monte Carlo = $43
NY-NY = $42
Paris = $40
Rio = $21
Strat = $37


Mandalay is $77 by adding the resort fee which is collected at checkin. The "credits" are worthless

When you look at Las Vegas unemployment a great deal are construction related and unfortunately I don't those jobs are coming back anytime soon most of the construction industry will have to relocate or change occupation.
I think room rates are rising and the number of visitors are going up monthly. The Casinos and tourist related business are soon going to have to hire to meet the returned demand so some unemployed may be hopefully finding new jobs soon I hope.
