Vegas has always been the place where Big Kids go to be Bad ! The same vibe that drew the Rat Pack still hums in every shuffel. Over the years, Vegas has grown into a draw for world class service, food, and entertainment but thats just an excuse to bask in the neon, enjoy that free drink, and take a chance.

Encore

Encore

This WAS the best place to stay on the Strip but with the rise of their night clubs and the rooms inadequate sound proofing, it's not what it use to be.

THEhotel

THEhotel

The rooms are very modern and masculine, reminding me of a Studio in New York City. Nice rooms and great room service ... if you?re going to stay at Man-delay Bay, theHotel is the best way to do it.

Hard Rock

Hard Rock

A small fun Casino with good restaurants and outstanding nightclubs - Check out Body English on "School Girl Sunday"; When any lady in a school girl uniform gets free drinks all night long and from the looks of things the shorter the skirt, the stronger the drinks. Rock on Rockers !

Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay

Man Delay Bay ! There is always a line to check in or out, but they do their best to move as quickly as possible. I haven't stayed in the newly renovated rooms but the place needed an update. The property is great with a fun Casino, good Bar / Nightclubs, and good restaurants. Iíve seen great shows at the HoB (was 10í from Snoop Dog, holdin my own on the dance floor for his show Ė ya heard me). I hope to check out the new bar and casino renovations next week.

Venetian

Good sized rooms with a funky design (step down living room), I stayed here for a week during a Convention and got very comfortable here. Itís not as high end as they would like to be, but itís a solid B .

Planet Hollywood

Love the Casino but I haven't stayed here yet.

MGM Grand

The Suites are nice and avoid the long walk to the regular rooms.

A desk clerk has ever told me ďIím sorry Sir, but I donít think that I can take tipsĒ when I tried the $20 trick. Rooms were cheap and you get what you pay for.

The site of my worst trip to Vegas Ö I had a first floor room in the tower and try to arrange for a wake up call Ė only to find that the phone in the room doesnít work. I walk to the front desk and they tell me that are aware of the issue but there isnít anything they can do. They also say that they can not arrange for a wakeup call for me, because of the phone problem. An hour later this high pitched wine starts screeching in my room. After 20 mins of searching and unplugging everything I can find, I figure out that itís coming from outside my window, where a large tour bus is parked idling outside my window. I pick up the phone to call the front desk, but of course it isnít working, so I have to get up and go to the front desk. They tell me that they will send someone from Security out to talk to the Bus Driver. And indeed I watch asthe Security guy shows up, bums a smoke off the bus driver, and sits smoking with him for bit before taking off Ė the bus still running itís motor and the noise still going. Another trip to the Front Desk, = me in being told that ďThere isnít anything that can be done because the bus is taking people to the Grand Cannon at 5 am and if they donít keep the thing going it wonít be warm for them". Fumming I go back to my room, pack, and wait for my 8 am shift to start.The next day I go to the front desk and speak to the Manager. He was indifferent and kept saying ďWhat do you expect us to do about it ?Ē. I asked what he was willing to do to make it up to me and his response was ďI really donít see the need to do anything for you since youíre convention staff. Have a nice day.Ē.Iím just sorry that I canít give them negative points.
