Ratings & Reviews

Wynn Las Vegas

Wynn Las Vegas

Wynn is a nice place for luxury guests. Encore is a fun place for the party crowd. Le Reve is one of the best Cirque style shows in town. Standard guest rooms at Wynn are the best in Las Vegas. The ritzy casino and conservatory are comparable to Bellagio's. The swimming pool is even nicer than the beautiful pool at Bellagio. Great shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Wynn equals or surpasses Bellagio in every respect except one- the Bellagio fountains.

Bellagio

Bellagio

Nice place for couples. Lake Como, Italy theme. Dancing fountains. Floral conservatory updated seasonally. $100 million Dale Chihuly art glass ceiling in the lobby. Beautiful pool scene. One of the best Cirque shows, O is performed here on an indoor lake. Great restaurants including Picasso, Le Cirque, and Olives.

Mirage

Mirage

Nice place for couples on a budget. Polynesian theme, lush folliage, tropical pool, man-made volcano, white lions and dolphins. Both shows are spectacular. Love is my all-time favorite, and Terry Fator is an amazing talent. Don't let the puppets fool you; Fator puts on a great show. The sandwiches at Carnegie Deli are huge - pig out or split one with a friend. Biggest downside: standard guest rooms are small, and their bathrooms are small with just one sink and shower/tub combo instead of separate shower and tub.

MGM Grand

MGM Grand

Fun place to party on a budget. MGM's Lazy River Pool is the best free pool party in Las Vegas; seen many wild and crazy bachelor / bachelorette parties here. KA is a good show. The stage is amazing and the performers are incredible athletes. CSI Experience is fun. MGM Grand has some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. Joel Robuchon is the best of the best.

Palms

Palms

The Palms boasts some of the best restaurants in town, and the best video poker and slot machine odds near the Strip. Used to be the happening place in Las Vegas: Playboy Club, Ghostbar, Rain, and Moon all had excellent views of the Las Vegas Strip. Only Ghostbar and Moon remain open. Stayed in the Fantasy Tower. Hoping that new ownership will revitalize this classic hotel.

Palazzo

Palazzo

One of the newest hotels. Rooms are huge and beds are comfortable. Palazzo is attached to the Venetian and the Sands Convention Center. Good location near Wynn and Fashion Show Mall. Nice hotel for conventioneers and older couples. Palazzo just seemed to lack the exciting vibe I get at Wynn, Cosmopolitan, Bellagio, or Mirage. Still a nice place to stay if the price is right.

New York-New York

New York-New York

Fun place to party on a budget. Tons of energy provided by a younger crowd. Fun roller coaster - especially at night. Zumanity is a great show. Fun bars in a Greenwich village atmosphere. Loved the theme here. NYNY casino is Vegas kitsch at its best. Good sushi at Chin Chin. Good pizza at Sirrico's. Good coffee shop fare at Americas. Our Park Avenue room was pretty good; bathroom was small with only one sink and shower/tub combo. Biggest downside was the small and uninspired pool.

Paris Las Vegas

Paris Las Vegas

Nice place for couples on a budget. Indoor decor is French cobblestone village with boutique shops. Mon Ami Gabi is a good French bistro overlooking the Strip. The bathrooms have separate showers and bathtubs and two sinks. Pool is small, but features the Eiffel Tower. Biggest downside: furniture is old, and there's quite a bit of wear and tear in the basic rooms. Paris offers better rooms with newer furniture for a higher room rate.

Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget

Downtown's swankiest hotel. Within a five minute walk, there's a dozen casinos with better odds than you can find anywhere on the Strip. Fremont Street Experience light show just outside the hotel. Swimming pool features live sharks. Carson Tower rooms are standard with old furniture. Rush Tower rooms are newer. Every room comes with a bathtub and a safe. Biggest downside is you need a car to get to the Strip.

Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino

Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino

Fun place to party on a budget. Penn and Teller perform a great comedy magic show here that makes fun of other magicians' lame tricks. Voodoo Lounge features an outside dance floor with a spectacular view of the Strip. The pool is small here, unless you pay extra to enjoy the larger pool at Rio's Bikini Beach Party. Guest rooms at Rio are large, but the furniture is old. All rooms include bathtubs and safes and refrigerators. Rio offers continuous free shuttle service to Bally's and Harrahs on the Strip until 1 am.

Excalibur

Excalibur

Budget hotel on the South Strip. Standard rooms are old and cheap. Widescreen rooms have newer furniture and cost a few bucks more. Both rooms come with a shower, but no bathtub.

Bally's Las Vegas

Bally's Las Vegas

Budget hotel on the center strip. Great location across the street from Bellagio.
