I personally am cheap and would like to walk as much as I can...but honestly that's during the day...at night if it's cold or too hot I would prefer a cab anyway.

I think they are nice hotels and worth stayin at, just bring alot of cash for cab fare.

Cabs themselves are not hard to find..they line up at each hotel so that isn't a problem....I guess it just all depends on what things you had in mind to do while you are there...I am guessing that a cab ride from Palms to the middle of strip like bellagio would be about $15 one way.

Venetian: Loved it! It's all suites and I just love the atmosphere! Plus I really want to go to Italy so I am bias. Friends aunt paid so I haven't stayed there again because I can't afford it.

 

Bellagio: Absolutely my favorite of the upper class hotels! I have stayed here twice. Once work paid for it for a conference and we just stayed there this april for my sister's 30th B-day!

 

MGM: It's okay...nothing great! The pool is awesome though! It's in a good location on the strip. I want to stay at their new towers...

 

New York: This is another favorite!!! It's reasonably priced and the rooms are nice. Central location. Fun environment. OMG...the Americana Cafe has the best Macaroni and Cheese!!! Add some Jalepenos too it and it's YUMMY!! Especially at 2 or 3 in the morning!

 

Imperial Palace: DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Although it was dirt cheap...it's not worth it. It's definately an older hotel! The smoke is really bad. The elevators are so slow we had to take the stairs and the water backed up in the bathtub...GROSS!! However...the dealertainers are pretty cool!!! So don't stay here...but stop by and gamble a little!!!

 

Stardust: Not the best place. It's on the old strip which is a LONG walk to the new strip and it's also older and smokey...The rooms weren't bad...but again, it's worth spending a little more to stay at a nicer place and closer to the new strip....

 

Ceasers: I loved Ceasers too!! The rooms were great and the hotel is like a maze...you can get lost...but same with any of them really! wink.gif

 

Bally's: We just got back from Vegas and stayed here this time. It's in a good location, and the rooms are huge but they aren't the nicest. We were in the old tower so that is probably part of it. I would stay there again if I was going cheap...but definately not my favorite. Plus they don't have 24 hour room service nor do they even have a restaurant open 24 hours...you have to go next door to the Paris (but they are connected). Also, their check-out time is at 11:00a and they charge you for a late check out! I have never had to deal w/ this! sad.gif

 

Tropicana: Haven't stayed here but on one trip we stayed at mgm and friends stayed here and at the time which was about 5 years ago...the rooms were pretty dated, but the pool is awesome!!!

 

flamingo: Also haven't stayed here, but friends have so I got to check it out. Again, rooms are pretty dated, but huge and they are in a good location and they have the best pool area! My friend got married in the garden area and it was just lovely and a little secluded too so it wasn't like kids were doing donuts in the pool while they were saying their vows!

 

I try to stay at a new hotel each time I go. My goal is to eventually stay at them all! :) They are so fun!

 

I have to say too...in all of my travels there, I have found that southwest vacations has by far the best deals!!! You pretty much pay for the hotel and get your airfare for like $40 a person!!! I wouldn't go any other way. Only bad thing is you can't to the 24 hr online boarding because it's not ticketless...

 

Sorry so long!!!

 

LOVE VEGAS!!!! :)

Luxor - stayed in one of the pyramid rooms. Was gorgeous. Loved the hot tub.

 

Circus Circus - We used to lay over there when I first started with Delta (now it is a different hotel and I no longer work for Delta). It is like the Jerry Springer waiting room in the lobbies. The rooms weren't horrible but the people at that place were unbelievable.

 

Flamingo - Hardly remember but think the rooms were decent.

i've styed at the wynn and hard rock and they were off the strip but i really prefer to stay within walkin distance of the action.

sometimes taking a cab can take so long and at night when it is hot it is kind of fun the walk around.

Good point as well. We'll probably end up on the strip. They are practically giving away rooms at the Hard Rock & Palms right now so that's why we considered them, but I think being on the strip/monorail path would be easier on everyone going :)

Yes, I noticed that! And their bathrooms look nice...I care more about hotel bathrooms than beds...lol It is a little further down the strip but we may go with them :)

In March, one of my friends (a BM from my wedding) just became engaged and they want to do it fast. So we're doing the Vegas wedding thing!

 

It's looking like it will be on St. Patty's day!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
