The other day, I saw a moment on HelloTalk that described the view of Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. I also saw a question from a reader about the structure of a sentence in the moment. The sentence is “Double the size of an average room on the strip with a lot of luxury for close to the same price". My understanding is that the subject of this sentence is omitted, double is verb, size is object, an average room on the strip is attributive, the rest of the sentence is adverbial. I don’t know if I am correct. I hope someone can tell me the correct elements of this sentence. Thank you very much.

"[The rooms of this hotel are] [d]ouble the size of an average room on the Strip with a lot of luxury for close to the same price." 1 - The subject and verb are implied. 2 - The verb is a linking verb. So the text is a subject complement (a description of the implied subject). 3 - "Size," "luxury," and "price" are the key parts of the subject complement (description). implied subject - the rooms of this hotel implied verb - are subject complement - part 1 (size description) - double the size of an average room on the Strip [the Strip is the casino district in Las Vegas] part 2 (quality description) - with a lot of luxury part 3 (price description) - for close to the same price [of an average room on the Strip]
