The 90-acre M Resort, located about 10 miles south of the Las Vegas resort corridor in the suburb city of Henderson, is depending on locals and drive-in traffic mostly from California to become its regular customers. Marnell said the hotel is also advertising near the airport in hopes of showing how the property stands out. M Resort has nine restaurants, including a buffet with beer and wine included in its price, as well as a cooking studio that can support television filming. A wine cellar uses a special dispensing system to preserve bottles, allowing it to offer 120 wines by the glass. From ( Last accessed March 1, 2009
