It's the venetian. Of course you don't need to stay there to get a ride.

Any opinions?
i would do bellagio, venetian, or wynn.

i think bellagio and venetian are in the best location and value wise i think bellagio is great because it is alot cheaper than both.

    I heard the Wynn doesnt have a casino anymore and that its far down the strip. Is that true? Bellagio looks amazing though!

    What? The Wynn not having a casino? That'd be crazy! they did when i was there, but that was a year ago. And yup, it's further down the strip. It's very close to TI, which is at the very end of the strip.

    i was there in sept. and they had a casino and i have not heard anything yet...in fact, their casino is tauted as a 5 diamond casino and the only one to rank that high in las vegas (for comfort, amenities etc.)

    i just know this because i am a wynn "master agent"...bwahahhahah

      This Vegas forum is fun!
      I've been to Vegas several times. I've stayed at NY NY, Monte Carlo, Bellagio, Stratosphere and the Wynn. But have been in just about every casino on the strip.

      NY NY has a fun casino (I won $5,000 on my first pull on the first slot machine I saw on my first trip to Vegas!) and a great piano bar. The Chinese restaurant is also great. Love how open the casino is (similar to Paris). The rooms were nothing special.

      Monte Carlo is very basic but nice. No frills.

      Bellagio is awesome. We had a suite and it was unbelievable. The pool is nice.

      Stratosphere was suprisingly really cool. We went for my my fi's sister's bachelorette party and her husbands bachelor party and that's were everyone was staying. We were nervous at first because we'd heard some terrible reviews. They place has been remodeled and we loved it...especially loved the rates! We had a suite and it was so unique...there was a hottub in the middle of the room!

      The Wynn is incredible. However, the decor is a little off for my taste. A lot of mustard browns and rust colored walls, etc. But the beds are the best!!
      I think I actually liked the room we stayed in at the Stratosphere better then the one at the Wynn and it was about $300 cheaper!

        Oh one more thing. I am in a wedding on September 7th of this year at Caesars so I will submit a review along with some pictures when I get back. They are getting married in a gazebo in a courtyard I think.

          Ah...Vegas!! I love Vegas! Usually go at least once a year...

          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!

          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!!!! :)

            I too have been to Vegas quite a bit. (My sister produces reality TV shows and I would visit her while she worked on some of the shows she did there.)

            Tammy - that stinky/mullett wearing hotel sounds like Harrah's to me. Could I be right? They seem very "Nascar" there. No offense anyone.

              For those who have stayed at the Hard Rock or Palms, is the fact that they are off the strip a huge deal?

              I.E. would we regret that we had to catch a cab coming and going, or is it a fairly easy thing/short ride to catch a cab?
