Las Vegas is amazing. It taps into everything I find interesting and fun in this world. I love architecture, change, competing, the thrill of winning, freedom to do as I please, and much more. I couldn't possibly say everything I love about Vegas in one place. It took probably 3-4 trips for me to go from casually interested to obsessed. These days, keeping up with the city is a hobby, as is anticipating every trip and even writing about it. I simply love Las Vegas.

Ratings & Reviews

Tropicana

Tropicana

I love the new Tropicana. I love that it is still affordable. I love that it still has a link to it's Vegas history (unlike Flamingo where none of the original buildings remain and it's basically a caricature of itself). I love the Tiffany ceiling over the pit. I love that they still pay 3/2 on blackjack. I love almost everything about this place.

M Resort

M Resort

M Resort would probably be my favorite hotel if it were on the strip. They have a fantastic buffet and reasonable minimums on all table games. Also, they have a bar with a ton of microbrews on tap that they will comp for your video poker play. Can't go wrong here.

Casino Royale

Casino Royale

I love Casino Royale for Craps. They have fun dealers on the tables, the minimums are low and the odds allowed are high. This is the best way to play craps. Also, the $1 beers at the bar aren't too shabby either.

Wynn Las Vegas

Wynn Las Vegas

Wynn is just quintessential Vegas elegance. It's still the top resort in my eyes as far as luxury goes. The casino is incredible, the disgn is spectacular, and I always enjoy my time at Wynn.

Encore

Encore

I love the Encore casino. I think it has the perfect mix of natural light and color that can really liven the place up. The clientele has gone downhill, however, since the beach club opened.
