Ratings & Reviews

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

I think I got lucky. My room was gorgeous (dig the terrace), and I had no hotel operations related nightmares. The blackjack tables provided more fun than I'd had gambling in years. Scarpetta is phenomenal.

ARIA

ARIA

Gorgeous. Dark, yes. But still this place is effing serious.

Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget

Classy. Even with all the hookers in the bar.

MGM Grand

MGM Grand

Best food in Vegas. Craftsteak, Robuchon, Fiamma....no problems here. Also a pretty friendly atmosphere.

Mirage

Mirage

Casino is a little dark, but I found the dealers pretty friendly. I hope they lose the 6:5 rubbish. I hear they got rid of the cafe as well. While it wasn't the best in the world, I vaguely recall enjoying breakfasts there at 4:30

Wynn Las Vegas

Wynn Las Vegas

very very shiny.

Mandarin Oriental

Mandarin Oriental

It sure looks awesome. I haven't been yet, and I can't give full points -- no casino. However, when I attempt to coax my girlfriend to try Las Vegas, this may be the best way.

Bellagio

Bellagio

Rooms are a little bit long in the tooth, but the casino is superb. Solid drink service.

El Cortez

El Cortez

Kick ass drunken 3 dollar blackjack.

Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo

Kind of boring, but bonus points for lots of open tables, and unusually friendly pit-bosses.

Tropicana

Tropicana

Fun casino....I look forward to seeing the renovations.

Fremont

Fremont

Except for the 6:5 nonsense, good atmosphere for table games. We also enjoyed trying to get laughs from a very surly dealer.
