Like no other hotel, the Stardust has been the embodiment of Vegas style and flash for almost 40 years.
Nothing better defines the resort than an early scene in the film "Swingers": The two protagonists pull up to the hotel in a vintage convertible and Rat Pack suits, sauntering inside as the last notes of Tony Bennett's "With Plenty Of Money And You" die away. "This is old school, baby," raves one to the other.

Time hasn't stood still at this legendary property. The Stardust, just like good red wine, gets better with age. Framed pictures of its grand opening in 1969 and early, ├╝ber-glamorous days decorate the walls in the newer part of the casino and comfy leather chairs and couches abound in the lobby and convention area.

The sign is announcing a double billing of "Hose Felliciano" & Kansas. I shudder to imagine that.
