Description: The Rio, an all-suite casino resort, evokes Carnival at its best and brightest. This masterplanned development came to fruition over the course of 10 years of development and expansion. It has grown from the original 500 suites to nearly 3,000, but the fundamental feel of the place has never changed. The Rio is a tribute to the vision and dedication, which is the core of Marnell Corrao Associates. One of the most successful properties in Las Vegas, the Rio utilized every facet of MCA expertise and exudes the very essence of the master plan concept. Every square foot of casino, every restaurant and bar, every swimming pool and palm tree, every suite from 560 square feet to over 13,000 square feet - all were designed and built by MCA.
