We loved the location of this hotel, the room they gave us was well appointed and spacious enough, spotlessly clean as well. Security was discreet but effective- access to rooms was by using your room key card to open an automatic door to the accommodation. You have to walk through the entire casino to get to reception but this has been said before. We just used the corner entrance at the front next to McDonalds after that and that was because we weren’t there to gamble, and that was fine. The vouchers for Denny’s that we were given enabled us to have a great breakfast every day- so much food that most days we forgot about lunch! Front of hotel looks directly at Mirage volcano- a must see at least once or twice during a stay in Vegas as well as the Bellagio fountain, also a short walk away! Everything else that has been said before about this hotel is true- no resort fees, but we were asked to register a bank card in case of damage to the room, was a bit of a surprise at $25 per day but we were assured it will be refunded.
Tips for Vegas
It gets hot there! Loose clothing recommended, drink plenty of water!
Do some research before you go- so much to do and see, a little planning will go a long way!
Take a day away from the strip to visit the Grand Canyon- we did South Rim and Hoover Dam- 14 hours, 600 miles but worth it!!
Use The Deuce/SDX bus -$6 for 2 hour bus ticket, $8 for 24 hours! The Strip is longer than you think.
Visit the LV sign (using SDX bus)and tip the resident photographer a few dollars to take your photo, but go as soon as the bus starts running at 9am as it gets busy and there is NO shade!!
Won’t spoil the surprise but the resort hotels have much more than eateries, shops and gambling! Check out The Forum at Caesars and the back garden of the Mirage and the Flamingo too!!
Perfect to escape to- so OTT, but what a place!! less
