Considering that it appears that you'll be coming from a long ways away, it might be better to stay somewhere that's a little nicer. Of course having said that, it also depends on your budget and some other things to consider. Once you get the budget squared away, that can help with some more narrowed down suggestions to keep your bedget in mind. If money was no object and you're looking for a hotel fairly in the middle of the strip, I'd stay choose the Aria, Bellagio, Caesar's, or Venetian/Palazzo (they're the same hotel). You could even argue Mandalay Bay fits into this group of hotels.

A couple of other things to consider. How much time do you lounge at the pool? Mandalay Bay has the best pool area but a place like the Palms, which is off the strip, has the best pool scene as it's geared more towards the hot looking crowds.

As I recommended to another person on a different thread, the best thing you can do is visit each of the hotels' websites and sign up for information as they'll send you offers via email and sometimes, they're really good. Now considering, you're coming from the Land Down Under, you won't get too much use out of it but it still may be worth your while to sign up for a players card because again, they'll send you offers via email and sometimes, they're really good offers. And if you're really big gamblers, you could even get your stay comped(compensated as in free) and it doesn't cost you anything to sign up for their players card.

My $.02. We love Bellagio and the Palazzo. I don't care for Paris as it really looks run down. I've never stayed there but walking through the casino looks really old even though it's moderately new. Excalibur is rather old and on the low end in terms of accomodations and look of hotel. Again, view the websites to get a better understanding of the rooms. One last note, the Venetian/Palazzo rooms all start at suites so keep that in mind, whereas most other rooms are your basic two or one bed and bathroom and tv.
