I've always favored the Luxor- great buffet, and right next to McCarran. Stay in the towers though, not the pyramid- always manage to hit my head on the slanted wall. Make sure you go see some shows- the enchanted dinner or whatever at Caesar's Palace is great- the best magic in Vegas for an evening- all underground in a place with great architecture!

be sure to visit the Venetian. Their version of St Marks Square is top-notch. Take your girl to the bridge and tell her that legend has any couple that kisses in that spot will be together forever (which is true for the original, not sure if Vegas has the same magic).
Emeril's restaurant, Delmonico Steakhouse, which is also in the Venetian, is kick-ass.

I recommend the "Big Shot" free-fall ride on top of the Stratosphere...its quite a unique ride in the sense you are already 1100 ft. above the ground and get shot up another 170 ft...well worth it...skip the "High Roller" roller coaster though...its completely lame...
If your renting a car, an interesting side trip is down to Primm, Nevada, about 35 minutes south of LAS on the California border...its a tourist trap/casino/hypercoaster stuck in the middle of nowheres along I-10...also quite unique...

I second riding the Big Shot at the Strat. It's scary as hell, but thrilling! My favorite thing to do in Vegas is to rent a boat or jet ski at Lake Mead. I am not 100% sure that they are still allowing personal craft on the lake, with the drought and national park regulations, but if they are, it's the best. You can zoom over and almost up to Hoover Dam and then just explore the rest of the lake to your heart's content. Lots of little coves for privacy! You might try a search for Lake Mead Marina and see if they are still renting. Have fun!

Mirrodie- as far as sharing pools goes, some hotels will allow you to use their partner's pool (Luxor and Excalibur)- I'm not sure if it's on a regular basis, because when we got to, the Luxor's pool was undergoing maintenance.

Its been a few years since I was there and a quick search on the net looks like the company I flew with no longer teaches. However I'm sure they will all be good whichever one you choose. I found my receipt - it was $120 well spent.
