Ratings & Reviews

Flamingo

Flamingo

Since I have nothing to compare it with, I was very happy. We got the cheap "deluxe" room (not a Go Room", only because mrsdoopey didn't care for it (...old fart). But the front counter lady was real nice, and gave us a 19th floor room, with a fantastic view of the Flamingo tropical area out back.The only problems with the room were rusty lighting lamps in the bathroom, and a toilet that never really had the gumption to flush. But everything was clean, and had decent beds.The casino was nice, but I didn't really gamble there. As with other Harrah's properties, it's kind of a rip, with the 6:5 on a natural, and $10 minimums. But it was nicely laid out, and fun to watch.Would stay there again to try the Go Room though ;)

Bellagio

Bellagio

One of finest places I have seen. Every detail is so intricate, whether its the architecture, pool, the conservatory, and even the check in counter, it's just gorgeous! I imagine it to be a very romantic place to stay at.Won $200 clear here as well on the slots. I NEVER win at slots, so I was thrilled!

O'Sheas

O'Sheas

This place is a lot fun for someone with my budget. I could get a lite beer and a hot dog for $3. There was a subway and a burger king inside for those who cannot afford the Wynn buffet, and I used my Flamingo (next door) Total Rewards card here. $5 Blackjack in to boot, it was a great place to gamble.

Planet Hollywood

Go Go girls while you gamble, 'nuff said. The decor was modern and pleasant...my kind of style! Good music playing too! Too bad the minimums were so high!

MGM Grand

MGM Grand

So much room to move around in here, makes it seems less crowded than it actually is. Love the space!The Hollywood theatre is a great place to see a show by the way!

Ten Things

1: The weather. Coming from Canada...gotta love that sunshine!
2: Nice people. In a town where everyone is in a good mood, I guess its a no brainer!
3: Drinking.....any place, any time!
4: Hard Rock Hotel...headbanging happiness!
5: Tom Jones show
6: The view of the strip from the plane. When I saw that, THAT'S when I really felt the first twinge of excitement!
7: The attractive people that seem to be everywhere in the evening
8: Great shopping
9: Strolling through Bellagio
10: Eating at ISLA at TI
