Its hard to get to the strip from Artia and Vdara, even thought there on the strip, and I dont think either as a casino in them. I would go with Pairs or Luxor both god picks, if all be equal stay at Paris, its center strip, and easy to get to any place

1. Mirage (tower suite)
2. Venetian
3. Mirage
4. T.I.

We have been four times and stay at the Mirage every time with a split stay somewhere else. DH loves the Mirage and especially it's location and the ease of getting to the Strip.

1. Caesars - So far above the rest! Great hotel, beautiful rooms and great location.


2. Treasure Island - room was big and very clean.
3. Luxor - We had an unbelievable rate. I have heard bad things but our room was very clean.
4. MGM - I should give this one another try. I was at a conference and my room was so far away from the conference facility. It just seemed so big and so unfriendly.
5. Paris - I felt cramped everywhere we went here. We went when it was first opened and had a free room with points. We were told we got an upgrade but our view was a parking garage where they were doing construction. I called the front desk but got disconnected and then told to bad.

Mandalay Bay - busy, but great fun. Nice rooms and great pool area. A bit of a walk to the heart of the strip.

NYNY - Love the general feel of the place, great fun atmosphere. Rooms are more basic. Not bad for the price.

Paris - Very nice, but a bit old world for me. Rooms are very nice. No complaints, just not for me again. Great central location.

Encore - Fantastic, great rooms, great pools, great everything. Worth the extra spend. Close to all the action without being in the centre of it. Right across from the Fashion Mall.

Aria has a casino. Vdara doesn't. The Mandarin Oriental also has no casino.

Here's the casino at Aria:

My friend and I stayed at The Flamingo... It was okay. We got the hall way from hell we called it and our view was of a construction site.... lol. Other then that it was good. The pool closes at 6pm... If you are pool people do not pick this for your stayy.

There is also hotels down in Downtown Las Vegas... my parents stayed the plaza last year and recently stayed at the Main Street Station they thought it was good.

**If you are on facebook, there's a game called myVegas. When you play for free, you also earn REAL comps for Vegas, 2,500 coin comps earns you a Free deck of cards. Right now i'm level 23 and have 6,900 comp coins

MGM Grand - The City Of Entertainment. Largest hotel in the world, last I checked. It was even better when there was a theme park in the back. But you could spend your entire vacation just in this one hotel. If you stay there, it's worth getting a Monorail pass, even though the Monorail station is a pretty far walk from the guest rooms.

Paris - it's like being in Paris and Las Vegas at the same time. Don't bother with the buffet. Just eat at the regular restaurants.

Excalibur - it's alright. Nice food court and some shops. Easy access to New York New York and trams to Luxor / Mandalay Bay / Monte Carlo

Orleans - off strip, but nice off strip.

Stratosphere - great if you like full pay video poker machines and being strapped to a chair on the roof of one of the world's tallest buildings. But pretty far from everything else if you don't.

Riviera - good place to crash, if you're just going to hit your head on a pillow and catch some zzz's.

Imperial Palace - OK. It's a dump, and it was built on a flood plain. You can't park your car in the lower level of the parking garage, because if it rains, your car will be underwater. Lots of cigarette smoke and plenty of sleazy charm (if sleazy charm is your thing). The saving grace is that it's cheap and you can easily walk to the much more expensive places like Caesar's Palace. My advice: ask for the "Luv Tub" suite. It's like $10 extra and the room is enormous. Don't bother filling the actual "luv tub", though. It will take 2 hours and the bath will be cold by the time you finish.
