    Hotel room inventory: 148,433 and although the global list changes, by room count in 2012, 20 of the largest 27 hotels are in Las Vegas.
    McCarran Int'l Airport is well positioned with accommodating flights as the 26th busiest in the world by passenger count. The location of the airport is convenient with plenty of ground transportation available.
    There are a variety of shows and things to do when not at the event venue.

    The Las Vegas convention center is approximately 3.2 million square feet with exhibit space of 2 million square feet and meeting space of nearly 250,000 square feet. The Sands Expo and Convention center has over 2.25 million square feet of flexible exhibit and meeting space. Mandalay Bay Convention Center has 2.1 million gross square feet. There are other smaller ones.

    There are many top restaurants, buffets, and catering is readily available, as well as available service staff.

    No matter how large or small an event, and what the event features, event coordinators are readily available to handle everything. It is possible to book an entire hotel, or a tower of a hotel when done in advance.
    An article shows a Middle Eastern air force [Saudi Arabia, but it is a secret.Shhhh] booked the entire W Las Vegas, a 289-room tower at the SLS Las Vegas, for most of August, according to numerous employees speaking on the condition they not be identified. They said employees are being shuffled around to accommodate the booking.

    Because of the available room count, selecting a less busy week can get favorable cost rates.

    Also, many affluent and famous people like to visit Las Vegas, and a convention or meeting is a good excuse for tax purposes. It is a reward to the employees of successful companies.

  • Where can I use smoke grenades in Las Vegas?

    I live in the Las Vegas area. I wanna do some smoke bomb photography like the Enola Gaye brand ones. I just don't want people calling the cops on me because they saw a cloud of green smoke. Where can I use them around here? I was looking at some parks with huge desert areas.

  • Where are some places along the Vegas strip where I may acquire cheap booze? Also, is it true that open-carry liqueur is okay there?

    Best answer: There are liquor stores and drug stores (Walgreens, CVS) along the strip that you can purchase less expensive alcohol than in a casino. But it's not going to be as inexpensive as you find in your home town. If you have a car and want to drive (or take uber) you can go to a regular grocery store. But unless... show more
    Best answer: There are liquor stores and drug stores (Walgreens, CVS) along the strip that you can purchase less expensive alcohol than in a casino. But it's not going to be as inexpensive as you find in your home town.

    If you have a car and want to drive (or take uber) you can go to a regular grocery store. But unless you are already off the strip, the price of the trip will be more than what you will save.

    Yes, there is open carry. There is no requirement what kind of glass it is in as Mam is implying.

  • Hotels in Las Vegas?

    Best answer: The gaming policies, night club policies, and liquor policies are VERY strict. 12AM on that night that legally starts your birthday local time. The hotel-casinos also tend to be very strict on policy and you should get an email for any exception about checking in. The Westgate used to be the Las Vegas Hilton, and... show more
    Best answer: The gaming policies, night club policies, and liquor policies are VERY strict. 12AM on that night that legally starts your birthday local time. The hotel-casinos also tend to be very strict on policy and you should get an email for any exception about checking in.
    The Westgate used to be the Las Vegas Hilton, and most Hiltons are 18+. Westgate changed to 21+. Call them, since depending upon where you look now, it still says 18, 19, or 21.
    I think the Flamingo has actually two hotels, one of them Hilton.
    http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/nevada/...
    This is 18+.
    Caesar's Flamingo is 21+
    https://www.caesars.com/flamingo-las-veg...

    When using a credit card you must check in with that card and you will need to be an authorized user at the bank records. They still require 21+.

    It is OK to ask, and if they approve to get an email to show a printed copy at check-in, but I would not put my faith in it.

    Booking.com and Smartervegas.com are usually two good pricing sites. Get logons for their better pricing.
    In Las Vegas, book directly with the hotel and I think both of these do that.

    The Riviera (closed and torn down), the Las Vegas Hilton (first non-renewed contract and then sold and revised to 21+), The Golden Nugget downtown STILL 18+
    https://www.goldennugget.com/las-vegas/f...
    were the three gaming properties allowing 18+ Check-in leaving only one today.
    The 2017 daily resort fee guide comes in handy:
    https://www.lasvegasjaunt.com/las-vegas-resort-fees-2017-guide/
    That is a nightly fee per room per night. It is never included in Expedia and Hotel.com rates and hits you at check in. Flamingo adds $30 a night plus tax. Westgate says $29.95 (same thing).
    The Elara is a beautiful 18+ at the back of the Miracle Mile shopping mall with Planet Hollywood in front. Wifi is extra, but no daily fee. If you gave the dates I could recommend an 18+.
    You could do one night at the Elara and then change to the Flamingo at your 21st birthday.
    Travelodge next to the Circus Circus is OK and 18+
    Hilton Grand Vacation Suites Convention Center is 18+
    Royal Resort was 18+ last I checked

  • Las Vegas Strip shuttle?

    Best answer: Take a taxi or a shuttle. Shuttles can be booked in advance, or you can reserve one when you arrive (you just might have to wait a bit). They do take longer, because they stop at several hotels. The taxi line can be overwhelming, but it moves quickly. It would take over an hour to walk from the airport to... show more

    It would take over an hour to walk from the airport to Circus Circus. I wouldn't recommend it.

    Best answer: most people stay on the strip. i don't know what you consider "cheap" but most cheap rooms on the strip run $30 to $75 a night plus resort fee which runs $15 to $30 per night. I go to vegas all the time and always stay on the strip. assuming you've never been there before, I'd recommend the Excalibur, Luxor, Flamingo, Harrahs, Bally's or Link. Those are all large hotels with casinos which help to keep the prices low. They are also located at major intersections along the strip. if you've ever seen photos of the strip, those are the areas these hotels are in. you'll be in the middle of the action. most people take taxis to the hotel but there are shuttle buses that are cheaper. NO casino hotel has a free shuttle.

    Looking at which has a better location along the strip, what has more things to do around the hotel and what each hotel can offer me. I don t need a 5 star hotel. Just as long as it is generally clean.

  • I recently went to Reno, NV and stayed in Circus Circus. In the vending machines, there were vending machines...?

    selling 20 oz bottles of soda and Gatorades for an obscene price of $2.50. I will be going to Las Vegas later this October and wonder if it will be even more expensive in their vending machines. Does anyone know the prices there?
