• First time visiting Vegas where should we (couple) stay?

    Best answer: I've stayed at several of those. Venetian/Palazzo are some of our favorites, and the rooms are fanatastic. Even the standard rooms are suites, and they are very nice.

    I don't care for the location of Wynn - it's farther north on the strip than it appears and not really near much else. I really like the City Center complex, where Vdara and Aria are both located. It's another really great location, and they are both nice (and newer) resorts. Bellagio is beautiful, but I find it pretty stuffy. We usually go visit the conservatory inside, but we don't ever feel really comfortable there, even when we were guests.

  • Have you been to Las Vegas? What is it like for a 23 year old woman?

    Best answer: What you do in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Go get yourself laid but don't drink too much so you won't recall how good or bad the sex was.

    the las vegas sportsbooks expect to lose money if the vgk wins the cup. everything so far is coming together for the team with the original nickname the misfits.
    [fixed my answer for the local team. las vegas is honoring them with nocaps]

    tested at the Circus Circus web site for June 25, 2018
    1 Run of House Room 1 night $22.00 (The Manor rooms are like a motel in the back.)
    Taxes: $2.94 = 13.36%
    Resort Fee & Tax: $36.28 per room per night
    Total: $61.23
    Resort fee guide
    https://www.lasvegasjaunt.com/las-vegas-...
    The required $36.28 includes
    In-Room internet access, unlimited local and toll free calls, airline boarding pass printing, fitness center access for guests 18+, a savings passport worth over $150 in savings.

    Self-parking is free. There is no security deposit. If pre-paid at a web site, that would usually exclude daily resort fee.

  • Can I pay a big hotel bill in cash?

    I am going to Las Vegas for some "business", and I called the hotel to check how much the bill will be. The bill for the full 7 night stay is about 42 thousand dollars (42,000). I have the money in cash but I do not own any type of cards. Will the hotel let me give them 42 thousand dollars in cash?

I work overseas on a rotation basis (i work 4 weeks on and then have 4 weeks off) and I would like to rent a unit to spend my 4 weeks off in Vegas. It's quite difficult to find any advice on how this may work if I don't have social security / a US bank account etc etc. I am not going there to look for work, just to spend some long term leisure time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  • Have you ever been to Las Vegas? Isn't it the most amazing, most exciting place in the world?

    Best answer: I've been many times, and I like it a lot. But I wouldn't say it's the most amazing, most exciting place that even I've been to, so I certainly wouldn't suggest that it's the most amazing, most exciting place in the world. It's fun, it's exciting, and there's a lot to see and do. show more

    Best answer: I chose Las Vegas.
    Sunny Days on average LV 294 vs Portland OR144
    Taxes are lower in Nevada. No state income tax, low property taxes, and the sales tax for locals does not make up the difference by no sales tax in Oregon.
    Average apartment rent in Las Vegas is $952/Month at 937 sq. ft. and in Portand is $1,420/month at 753 sq. ft.
    Although data varies, Portland cost of living is about 35% higher now than in Las Vegas.

    Heat doesn't bother me as much as cold weather. Daytime winters in Las Vegas are warmer than Portland.
    For activities and things to do, it is personal preference. There is enough to keep entertained in Las Vegas. I don't enjoy hiking or camping at all so have little desire for outdoor forest activity.

    Portland has a car traffic and congestion problem.
    Worldwide
    Portland #40 highest congestion with average work commute time 50 minutes
    Las Vegas is #314 in congestion and average commute 24 minutes
    For commuters on average is an extra hour a day available.

  • Where is the best place to stay on the Las Vegas strip for me and my family that includes 2 elementary school age children?

    Best answer: Note that 4 to a room is typically maximum in a two queen or double bed. That is a fire law.

    One guide
    https://www.lasvegasjaunt.com/las-vegas-...
    Booking.com and Smartervegas.com are fairly good, and if you want to play with the Trivago site, watch the bottom line numbers as those daily fees do not easily show and other fees get hidden.

    That said, Circus Circus is good for the on site entertainment for the kids.
    Mandalay Bay - Wave pool has a 48 inch minimum height for kids and they do not tend to allow people from even sister hotels to use the wave pool. Summer is starting in Las Vegas and Mandalay Bay does have a great wave pool and lazy river and aquarium and is much nicer in decor than Circus Circus.

    There are other interesting choices. The Elara is non-gaming attached to the Miracle Mile shopping mall with Planet Hollywood in front on-strip. Their one bedroom has a projection TV. The living room has a sofa bed and bedroom one King. There is a full kitchen and adequate space and looks nice. Their pool is nothing special.

    The Mirage is a good family choice. The volcano show erupts nightly starting at 8 p.m. A 20,000-gallon saltwater aquarium and the tropical rainforest atrium that has waterfalls, a lagoon and lush foliage. The on-site Cirque Du Soleil show is Beatles Love, probably better for a little older depending upon their maturity. Terry Fator as ventriloquist, Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat, make the Mirage fairly family friendly overall.

    The Excalibur has The Tournament of Kings jousting dinner show, the Fun Dungeon arcade, and accomodations in a medieval-style castle which is interesting to most kids. The hotel has not kept up wth renovations and is only a 3 star rating now. Circus Circus courtyard rooms are a motel in back and overall they also are 3 star are sacrificing for the kids. I would opt for the tower rather than courtyard at Circus Circus.

    The MGM Grand’s Backlot Lazy River and pool is fun for the whole family.
