Siri Fails Finding Monorail

I did a lot of experimentation using Siri while recently visiting Las Vegas for PubCon 2011.

 

While standing at the sign for the entrance to the Las Vegas Monorail at Bally's Hotel and Casino I gave Siri the query "Bally's monorail entrance."

 

Notice in the screenshot, 6 public transportation options were listed, but that's not what I was looking for.

 

Instead of getting directions to the monorail entrance near Bally's Hotel, I was given Information for the Las Vegas Monorail Company. I suppose I could have used that information to call and get directions but the sign with detailed information about the monorail was directly in front of me.

 

I have numerous examples of this for nearly every query I made while in Las Vegas, or at least for the ones that Siri could understand.
