Awesome photos! They bring fond memories of a particularly eerie episode in my life when I was transported to Area 51 by otherworldly beings. I am anxiously awaiting the completion of the new Marriott under construction as it looks fabulous. Hopefully, the new property has not experienced category creep as I plan to use a few mega bonus coupons for my stay. The space ship does not look familiar at all.
Actually it is not a Marriott under construction, but another brand. known to us by it's nom d' plume, Fairmont, and after all being a Canadian corporation it is technically owned by 'aliens.' Area 51 may lack the glitz of Vegas but what happens there really does stay there.
