Vegas Hotel Recommendations

Thu Sep 06, 2001 11:44 am

I know that this topic appeared in this very forum oh... about two months ago or so but I want a fresh new set of ideas and opinions. Our trip to the City of Lost Wages won't happen until December but I want to make plans as early as possible (like next week). So go for it guys and girls, which hotel should my wife and I stay?

As always, thanks for the input.

If you like Star Trek- The Las Vegas Hilton..

If not, Flamingo Hilton..

Either way, visit the Star Trek exhibit.. It blows your mind..

The best time to go is either right during Christmas or right before it, that is the peak of the off season, and it is right before the mad rush of people come for New Years.

I would suggest either Luxor or the Venetian. The best thing about the two is that they are not crowded at all, yet while being big, they are designed very well so as not to make you feel squished in (i.e. MGM).

Go to the Hilton Grand Vacations. It's just off of the Las Vegas Hilton, and every room is a suite! I stayed there a year ago, and it was wonderful. Huge in-room hot-tub, big bed, kitchen, big-screen TV etc. etc. You'll hate yourself if you don't go there. It isn't right on the Strip, but it's a great place to relax. Of course if you are looking for casino action, I'd pick the Mirage or the Luxor.

There's also a HGVC at the Flamingo Hilton property. I prefer that location because it's on the strip, rooms have better amenities and easy access to Flamingo's swimming pools; although it's starting to show its age, but renovation should start shortly.

Also, if you attend a timeshare presentation Hilton will give you $50 worth of chips.

I've never stayed there but been there quite a few times. It's located on the southern part of the strip just across New York New York. There's also easy access to the mid-strip by tram that connects the hotel and the Bellagio.

In my opinion, it's a nice resort and the price range would be similar to that of New York New York or Paris.

I stayed at the Mandaley Bay (next door to the Luxor). Very nice. I would recommend it.

I stayed at the Mandalay Bay for three nights. It was wonderful. My first choice would be either Mandalay Bay or Caesar's Palace!

Stay at the Bellagio. It's worth the cost.

Why not try the Motel 6 on Tropicana a block east of Las Vegas Blvd? For about USD$40 a night, you get a room....and you'll have more money to "donate" to the casinos.  Laugh out loud The Strip is only a 5 minute walk away.

i stayed at the alladin - the place is pretty cheesy, but it's right in the middle of the strip and it's close to a lot of the big places: mandalay bay, paris, etc... and within a decent walk of almost everything on the strip. plus it's cheaper than any of the other, bigger name places - i think we paid $79 on a thurs night. it's also the newest hotel on the strip.

we also hung out at the hard rock - it's a cab ride from the strip, but there are a lot of younger people there. not sure about the room costs thiough.

Last time I was in Vegas I was there for a convention with my dad so we stayed at the Stratosphere which is at the northern end of the strip about 2 blocks from the convention center. I highly recomend it. It is big enough to be fun and interesting without ovwherlming you. Plus for a huge modern casino, it has the lowest room rates. Check it out, youll pay like $20 less for staying there versus the other hotels.

The Hard Rock is fun though, lots of young people and a cool scene.

Paris for me, was a big disappointment. I really just didnt see the excitement and action and even feature this hotel had compared to some of its competitors. Yes the, outside looks awesome, but thats it.

Hey Trick'
Why don't try the Golden Nugget. It is located downtown where all the action is. It's a very lovely place and it won't cost you an arm and a leg. I paid less than 50 dollars a night.

Either way, you're going to have a great time.

I stayed at the Tropicana. It was wonderful and not too expensive. They have parrots in the corridors and lobbys as well as a white tiger in a big cage front of the hotel.

It is located on the south end of "the Strip", about 20 min drive from the airport. Opposite of MGM, next to Excalibur!

I think that the coolest hotel is the Venetian, the inside is really nice and it is really really modern.

When I stayed at the Stratosphere I found it to be pretty cool. When my friend went to Vegas, he stayed in the Luxor. He said that it was a great place.
