I really was impressed by the high definition video billboard outside of the Aria. It is a huge, narrow rectangle, that is mounted so that the long side appears to run up the side of the CityCenter shops fronting the Strip. The edge detail of the picture is so clear that it makes the video signage on the Planet Hollywood across the street look like an 8-bit Gameboy Color screen.




Any other nominations for, "Best Sign"?

Aria does have a cool sign. However, I am scared to play there-everyone I know gets taken to the cleaners as they say in their H.L. room. But for me the best and greatest sign is the one outside the property we won at, evidently this changes up from trip-to-trip.

This went on for weeks on the big sign in front of Planet Hollywood a few years ago:

Thats a great sign. Back when "industrial design" actually was a artistic trade.

"The Chief Court Hotel sign was originally installed around 1940 at the hotel formerly located at 1201 E. Fremont Street. The hotel architect was A. Lacey Worswick. The sign was loaned and refurbished by the Tiberti Family. It was installed as part of the Neon Museum on July 8, 1997. The sign can now be found on the northeast corner of Fremont Street Experience and 4th Street."

It's not a sign, but I like a lot of odd motel stuff like the blue angel on Charleston. I think something is suppose to be in her other hand too, but not sure what.

Perhaps that represents a hand job.

There's no secret. Just know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.

Is the 'Steamed Heat' the Chief sign advertising referring to having heating via steam pipes? Because that's kind of a strange way to put it.

It's not a sign,



But it is a sign. Early signs had no writing at
all. A striped poll for the barber, pawnbroker
was 3 balls, a cross meant a church. Even
today the most well known signs have no
words. Golden arches, the Big Boy statue,
Col Sanders face. Tobacco shops had a
wooden Indian out front.

The hotel was built in the 1930's, I imagine
it was unique in NV to have steam heat. It's
very efficient and reliable.
