What's up with the exterior of the Palazzo?

When we were there last weekend, we noticed that the huge letters that spell out PALAZZO were missing from the sides of the building. The one across the top was still there, but the vertical ones down the sides were gone. You could see what looks like the 'pegs' that held them, but no letters attached. Anyone know why? Just curious.

They were pinched by the Plaza. Obviously they didn't need all the letters but it would have looked obvious had they left behind a 'Z' and an 'O'.

Was the water emptied out after some peeps already bought tickets to ride the outside gondolas? <ducking>

When we were in Vegas in June the outside canal was empty. Maybe it takes a long time for paint to dry in the heat? The Palazzo had all the letters but we did notice that one of the buildings in the Venetian had some kind of fabric (mesh?) that at first glance looked like an extension of the height of the building. Not sure if there is maintenance going on and that is there to improve appearance or what.

The fabric is covering the unfinished St Regis Tower that may or may not ever be completed.

The water has been gone for a while. I'm not sure what's up with that.

Some Vegas blogs are speculating that Venetian may be planning to retire the "Palazzo" name as a separate brand. After all, what is the point of marketing the two hotels separately, when they more or less have identical rooms and rates? The hotel may just become the "Palazzo Tower" of the Venetian hotel.

Wynn has done this over the past few years with Encore. Encore no longer has a separate website or Twitter feed -- everything redirects to the main Wynn page.
