Trivia
The location of the fictional Montecito has changed from season to season. Some of the first episodes were taped at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, which is located at the intersection of Tropicana and the Vegas Strip (next to NY NY and across from MGM). (They closed down the strip on at least one occasion at that block to film a car scene...) 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. 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. Many of Mandalay Bay's interiors and exteriors (including its wave pool) have been used as Montecito exteriors, although the actual set of Montecito is located at Culver Studios, in Culver City, California, so the interiors are a replica of the Mandalay Bay. These studios are where Gone with the Wind (1939) was filmed. 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, or Mirage are currently, before the more consistent location at the southern end of the Strip was finalized. In Season 3, Ed Deline's office appears to be in the middle of the strip, overlooking Harrah's, Caesar's Palace, the Mirage, and the Venetian, which puts the Montecito near where Treasure Island is located. This is inconsistent with the flyover shots of the Montecito, which would place Ed's office over 2 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 (around min 34) there is a scene in Ed Deline's office where again we can see an overview of The Mirage and Caesar's 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 the Wynn Las Vegas. It's possible that this distance is in a straight line ("as the crow flies", if you will) as opposed to a reference to actual driving distance. 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.

In Heroes: Chapter Four 'Collision' (2006) and Heroes: Chapter Five 'Hiros' (2006), Hiro, Ando, Nathan, and Niki all stay at the Montecito. In Heroes: Chapter Fourteen 'Distractions' (2007), Ando and Hiro wear badges that match the logos seen on Las Vegas (2003).

In one of the third season episodes, Martin (Barry Bostwick) asks Ed Deline about the character Sonny Corleone from The Godfather (1972), to which Ed replies "Never seen it". In a previous Season 2 episode Ed is shown talking to Mike Cannon (James Lesure) about a scene in 'The Godfather' dealing with the Sonny Corleone character. James Caan who plays Ed Deline on Las Vegas also played Sonny Corleone.

Goofs
The Montecito is located across the street from the Luxor in the vacant area off the Vegas strip, yet all views from the rooms or ED's office are from the Mirage on the other end of the strip.

Exterior images of the Montecito place it at the South end of Las Vegas Boulevard near Mandalay Bay while most interior shots (noticed through the windows) place it closer to the North end of Las Vegas Boulevard near The Mirage and The Venetian.

Exterior shots of the Montecito often switch the orientation of the hotel from having the entrance facing Las Vegas Boulevard to having the entrance facing away from the strip.

Mike Cannon: Okay, the main air ducts lead to the central system. From there I can take any branch and drop into the lobby. It's about a 20-plus foot drop so... I'll probably break my leg - maybe both, but that's okay. This is good. This is a good plane. Somebody uh, give me a screwdriver.

Q
Why do people keep referring to 'Whales'?
A
In Las Vegas speak a 'whale' is a wealthy gambler. It is Sam's job to reel such people in and make sure that they spend their time gambling rather than being distracted by Las Vegas' numerous other diversions.
Q
There are loads of hookers in the series operating openly, is prostitution legal in Las Vegas?
A
Not strictly speaking no. Escort services are tolerated and other prostitutes are allowed to operate outside public areas as long as they are discreet and do not openly solicit or cause a public nuisance. Closely regulated legal brothels are premitted in some counties of Nevada but none within Las Vegas city limits.
Q
Which episode shot at St.Regis in Dana Point, CA?
A
That episode was "The Secret Life of Bob" from the first season.
