We are taking a road trip and will be passing through Vegas. We have only been once (without kids). Which hotel would be best with kids (ages 11 and 13)? We just want them to see Vegas once!
I've stayed at Paris. The room itself was pretty standard Las Vegas, but we didn't have a suite. It wasn't particularly big, and the Euro touches to the room were barely perceptible. The hallways did have decorative wallpaper. I do recall going downstairs for coffee (no in-room coffeemaker) and I could have sworn I heard someone speaking French. Seemed kind of odd, since the place is a theme park equivalent of what Americans think France is like. It was a great location though.It really depends on your price range! Like PP, Mandalay Bay is an awesome hotel with an even more awesome pool! Love staying there for summer stay-cations! But Mandalay is pretty far away from the heart of the Strip. I would suggest the Paris! The theming is gorgeous and it is in a great location. Some rooms will face the Bellagio to watch the fountains every 30 minutes or so!
Vdara suites as described above are an excellent family choice. Im a local and highly recommend Vdara. No casino and no smoking is wonderful when travelling with kids! Its also centrally located on the Strip. Other suggestions would be Aria, MGM or the Venetian.mylittleguys said:We stayed at the Vdara with kids and loved it! We had a Vdara suite with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Pool was great and hotel is non smoking. Connected to the Bellagio by a walkway, and walking distance to many attractions.
We stayed at Desert Rose (based on what I read here) last November. We liked that our rental car was parked close by, the one bedroom and living room and full kitchen was great, pool was small but quite satisfactory. Room rate was reasonable considering the space, full kitchen, and no resort fee. One block from the strip, coming home at night was like entering our own quite oasis.We stay at the Desert Rose, which is right behind the Tropicana and Hooters.
They have one and 2 bedrooms and the couch is also a bed. They have free breakfast, pool and jacuzzi. Full kitchens. Still close enough to walk to the strip.
I am so glad you enjoyed it! I am so sorry they no longer do the free breakfast. But I do love the location, and how easy it is to the strip. I can even take the bus straight down to walmart if I needed to. Thanks for the heads up for change in management.Best of all no fees.We stayed at Desert Rose (based on what I read here) last November.

We plan to go back to Las Vegas this year. Have researched other placed, but will likely go back to Desert Rose. There has been a change in management and there is no longer a free breakfast. We'll deal with that by using the full kitchen.
