In the final season, only 19 episodes of the originally planned 22 episode season were filmed at the time the show was cancelled.

The location of the fictional Montecito has changed from season to season. Some of the first episodes were taped at the Mandalay Bay which is located south of the intersection of Tropicana and the Las Vegas Strip (next to Luxor). Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is a 39-story Luxury Hotel Casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas. The Tropicana Resort & Casino Las Vegas is located on the Las Vegas Strip, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Las Vegas Strip (also known as The Strip) is an approximately 4 mile (6 Because of its similarity to Mandalay Bay, many of the show visuals place the Montecito at the far southern end of The Strip, albeit usually across the street from Mandalay Bay on the airport side of Las Vegas Boulevard. Las Vegas Boulevard is a major road in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, best known for the Las Vegas Strip and its Casinos Formerly carrying US 91 The exact location and rotation of the building seems to vary a lot within this area, indeed the CGI zoom shots of the building exterior in the season two episode, "Montecito Lancers", shows the building in three slightly differing locations for three different shots. In Season 5, the Montecito seems to have the consistent location across from Mandalay Bay.
Many of Mandalay Bay's interiors and exteriors (including its wave pool) have been used as Montecito exteriors, although (according to the Internet Movie Database) the actual set of Montecito is located at Culver Studios, in Culver City, California, so the interiors are a replica of the Mandalay Bay. Culver City is a city in western Los Angeles County California. These studios are where Gone With The Wind was filmed. Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American dramatic - romantic - War film adapted from Margaret Mitchell 's 1936 The Season 3 set of Las Vegas has been said to be the biggest set for a TV show ever.
During the first season of the show, many of the Montecito's suites overlooked various parts of the middle part of the Strip, placing the hotel near where The Venetian, Flamingo Las Vegas, or The Mirage are currently, before the more consistent location at the southern end of the Strip was finalized. The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino is the largest AAA Five-Diamond rated Resort in the Americas The Flamingo Las Vegas is a hotel casino located on the famed Las Vegas Strip in Paradise Nevada and is owned and operated by Harrah's Entertainment. For the band see The Mirage (band The Mirage is a 3044 room Hotel and Casino resort located on the Las Vegas Strip
During the first season, except for the pilot episode, the sets were built as needed for filming.
In Season 3, Ed Deline's office appears to be in the middle of the strip, overlooking Harrah's, Caesars Palace, The Mirage, and The Venetian, which puts the Montecito near where Treasure Island is located. Harrah's Las Vegas is a hotel and casino located on the famed Las Vegas Strip in Paradise Nevada. Caesars Palace, sometimes referred to colloquially as simply Caesars, is a luxury Hotel and Casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise Treasure Island (also known as " ti " is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA with This is inconsistent with the flyover shots of the Montecito, which would place Ed's office over two miles away. Closer examination of the window scene shows that The Mirage's marquee over their driveway has been edited to read "Montecito". In season 4, episode 2 there is a scene in Ed Deline's office where again we can see an overview of The Mirage and Caesars Palace. Again it's a confirmation that Ed Deline's office would be where Treasure Island is located.
According to an episode that originally aired in December 2005, the Montecito is located about 1. 5 miles from Wynn Las Vegas. Wynn Las Vegas Resort and Country Club (often just called " Wynn " is a AAA five diamond/ Mobil four-star and Mobil five-star (for It's possible that this distance is in a straight line ("as the crow flies") as opposed to a reference to actual driving distance. " As the crow flies " is a phrase used to describe the most direct route between two points on a Planetary body. This distance is inconsistent with long shots that place the Montecito near the airport and Mandalay Bay, but is in line with Season 3 visual references noted above.
Other episodes show aerial shots of the Montecito that make it appear to be situated at the corner of Giles St. and Reno Ave. , about half a mile from Mandalay Bay.
