We've stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton. Good for families. StarTrek theme. Close to the convention center.

Plus, because it is off The Strip, it does not have those sleazy guys on the sidewalk handing out those darn cards with pictures of topless women.

Wife and I are leaving this Friday for a 4 day trip I won to Vegas (including $500 cash)thru work. We are staying at Ceasars Palace. Problem is neither one of us enjoys gambling so we could use some advice on what to do. We are planning on Hoover Dam but thats about it. Could use some dining info and any input about the hotel would be nice. Thanks.

Caesars is a centrally-located lovely hotel. There's plenty to do for non-gamblers. Take in a nice show or two (such as Elton John at Caesars, or one of the many Cirque du Soleil shows). Have some fantastic meals. There's also plenty of free entertainment, like the fountains at the Bellagio hotel.

There is TONS to do in vegas! I have been there alot, several times before I was 21 and I was never bored. Just walking around and looking at things can be amazing, downtown they have the laser show, and the pirate show at TI, walking through ceasars palace,watching the moving statues. Just walking around all the casinos is pretty cool, they all have different themes. And one is just as big and flashy as the next. One place Im surprised no one has mentioned was the Flamingo. I know its old and not as flashy as the new places, but its nice, good buffet with good customer sevice. My husband and I got married there 2 years ago and for a wedding present they upgraded us to a siute the whole time we were there (7 days) and it was in th middle of august. High season, they also went out of there way to make our reception amazing. It was in the buffet, and they gave us a bunch of free champagne, and sparking cider. It was great.

We saw the Blue Man Group when they were at the Luxor (can't remember where they moved to) - it's definitely an experience! And if we go back to Vegas, we'd like to go and see the Cirque du Soleil Beatles themed show (I think it's called "Love").

Has anyone stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Lake Las Vegas? For a Ritz, it has a great price. Any suggestions would be appreciated; thanks.

I saw "Love" last weekend and I thought it was fantastic.

I really enjoyed staying at Paris Las Vegas.

I'm staying at Bally's in January (got a deal, and it connects with my new favorite, Paris) and have tix to see "O" at Bellagio. Looking for a second show.

It sounds like the Hilton is a good choice for a family where Dad is headed to the convention center each day.

Bally's is a good choice -- right across the street from Bellagio and "O".

We stayed one night at the Main Street Station (downtown). We were booked for 3 nights, but one night was one night too many. The front desk staff was horrible, the rooms were really bad, it was just all around a bad vibe in that hotel. We moved to the Luxor the next night which was very nice. Great room, the casino was fun, food was okay. It actually was only about $40 more than the Main Street too.

I would love to know also. My dh has a company meeting there in June and dd and I will be heading there to meet him for a few days. My sister in law's parents live in LV and she says the Lake Las Vegas is incredibly wonderful..the Ritz there is wonderful and she says she wants to join us for a day or two!!!
We hope to drive down and check out the Grand Canyon for a day while there.
I would love to hear any comments on this hotel and the surrounding area also.

Luxor- Styed in a 2 room suite in the pyramid with our seven year old son. He loved the Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom.

Mandaly bay- Biggest most beutiful room. The wave pool was way too crowded to be fun.

NYNY- It looks funner form the outside than it actually is. Stayed in the Chyrstler building. It must have been a mile walk of hallys yo get to our room from the elevator.

Ceasar's palace- stayed in the palace towers. It took me awhile to realize that our room over looked the topless pool .

Got to go with Woody on this one. We stayed at Bally's this summer and loved the location and also the room size.

Can anyone tell me how long the drive is from Palm Springs, CA to Las Vegas?
We are going to be spending three nights at the Flamingo this summer at the end of our CA trip.

Glad to hear that people like Ballys - I stayed at Paris last month which connects to Ballys and it looks fine to me although I haven't seen the rooms. I was just able to knock another 80 bucks off my Ballys reservation in January so it's all good.
