Las Vegas hotels

My mate has decided that him and his OH are going to get married in Vegas next May. Anybody recommend a good hotel (fairly cheapish) for me and a couple of girls to stay in that is close to everything.

I have been looking at the Stratosphere but would really like someone's views on their experiences.

We're going the first week of May. I'm booking flights with Virgin as they're the only ones offering direct flights.

cheers for any help/advice

I stayed at stratosphere a few years ago and I thought it was really decent. nice rooms and all, but cant rem much otherwise
banned#2
IMPERIAL PALACE very central good clean cheapish hotel
#3
Stayed at the luxor, it was amazing and if you avoid weekends you get good rates too, one idea if you go for a week or two is to stay in the downmarket hotels through the weekend and treat yourself midweek when the major hotels are cheap.
#4
Ceasars Palace..... its a little pricier than the MGM Grand or the Luxor, but its got a little class :thumbsup:
#5
they have las vegas hotels on laterooms? hven't looked but thats where my sis booked hers
#6
I stayed at the Hilton a few years ago. that was a really nice hotel. i also stayed the circus circus hotel when i returned. from what i could make out all the hotels offer the same sort of service. all the ones on the main strip are quite central.when i was there i looked arround most of the hotels. you will have a fantastic time wherever you stay... one thing i did remember about booking was the prices were higher at the weekend and when there were event on such as the boxing.

Well it really depends on your budget and if you want to be located in the centre or not. The Strastosphere is an average hotel, but there is a sale on Expedia for May, at around £25-40 a night, so go for it if you're happy with the standards. Otherwise, if you prefer some more luxury and not too much travelling around, Treasure Island is a good one and cannot be more in the centre - but expect to pay around £100 a night.

Thanks for all the help guys, will have a browse at the hotels suggested and thanks for the tip. I know it's months away but am really excited about it.

Did any of you visit the Grand Canyon ?
banned#9
grand canyon is a must if u can afford to fly there fly there i9f not catch a coach highlight of any trip freemont st free light show bellagio fountains incredible other hotels do their own things enjoy
#10
Stayed at Hilton - reasonably cheap but all mod cons - plasma tv etc but had to pay for wireless internet!

Definately do the Grand Canyon as you get tired of LVegas quite quickly - AWESOME - you cannot imagine the scale. I saw a line on a hill I thought was 1/2 mile away - turns out it was 5-6 miles away & the line was a track and when I zoomed in with my camcorder - 100:1 approx I could see people on mules. Sunrise & sunset a sight to behold.

If you can - also do the Sky walk - we went late and almost had to ourselves. I asked the guide about the grass below and he said it was 20' - 30' trees. (buy the way you are on a glass floored, cantilevered walkway 70' out over the canyon and feel like your bowels are going to fall out when you look down - male or female)

The helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon was ........ fantastic and for about £25 you can get a copy of the flight with your voice as a sountrack - they encourage you to talk to the pilot.

Enjoy - Ps don't book hotel/motels until you are there as you can negotiate discounts and you get discounts for being with the AA (they call it the AAA but still give the discount inc L Vegas) although you do have to prebook the first night so as you can give an address to imigration.

well, can't see any of us doing that as we're all scared of heights :w00t:, my experiences of glass floors involved a lot of stomach emptying :oops:

great tips though :thumbsup:

i visited hoover dam. that was the cheapest excursion. i hired a limo that took me up and down the strip at night. that was cool, and not very expensive. if youre short off time dont go down to the old end of town.its called fremont street. that wasnt very good. we ate at the hotel buffets. they were really cheap. if you likre star trek you have to visit the hilton as they have the bar from deep space 9 there. every hotel has a theme. some have zoos in them. awsome place. very cheap when you get there, not so much now as the dollar is **** though

That's a pity as you could get your photo taken with a Klingon in the bar and other characters! Glad we did that last year. We also did the Hoover Dam. Extremely Hot! ,,,, no I mean temperature wise - around 130F - 140 F. There is an ice cream concession in the multistorey car park - worth getting some. We had seen the release of Transformers 2 days before and a big battle scene had happened at Hoover Dam and it was brilliant as we could see the places were the fights had occured, so if you go to Hoover, watch Transformers first and you will see what I mean.

Sounds cool mm :thumbsup:

Looks like loads of stuff to do in so short a time :), luckily I'm not a gambler lol

Did you do the casinos ?
#16
yes i did the first time, lost 60 dollars before i got my free drink. the machines are everywhere, but theres so much more too see that you wont want to gamble all the time. the hotels change all the time. they were building a moner rail the last time i went (about 5 years ago) i stayed there a week and spent most off the time looking arround the strip. it takes a few hours just to explore each hotel. each has a theme, as well as hundreds of gambling machine. it doesnt cost anything to look round. you can make use of all the hotel facilities. brilliant place. felt really safe walking round. didnt see any trouble either time i stayed there.
#17
If you have any priority club points from staying in holiday inns etc..they can be used to stay in vegas.
The stratosphere is OK, its right at the end of the strip, so be prepared for a bit of a trek every time you go anywhere.
A cheaper option would be the flamingo - it is a bit basic, but right in the middle of strip.
There are also some good deals around 2 nights for the price of 1 - if you don't mind changing hotels every couple of days, my mate did it last year and he said he got to experience a few different sides to the place!!

Hi choc, im just back from Las Vegas last Saturday! had a great time, Stayed at Ballys hotel which was on the strip right across from the Bellagio fountains, its on the centre of the Strip and has really access to loads of the best hotels. Just watch the Stratosphere, its miles away up the Strip, not really near any other hotels and not in the best area.

Here is my trip report if your interested!

Thanks, Best hotels in my opinion for location have to be Ballys, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Bellagio, Flamingo, Imperial Palace (- not any any particular order).

Best to avoid in my opinion only due to location are Mandalay Bay, Stratosphere, Sahara, Luxor, etc.

There is a monorail that runs almost the length of the strip which is pretty easy to get on but it is a little expensive so def spend a little extra on your location!

Hope you get a really good deal! if you have any other questions please ask or check trip advisor, there is so much info there! :thumbsup:

Hi there
I got married in las vegas last year and took a number of mates out there with me. Having spent about 18 months researching how to do it all we settled on the Imperial Palace for the guests.

This hotel was great for the price.. If you want to be centrally located most of the hotels cost a fortune - Caesars, Bellagio, Wynn, Mirage etc and lets face it your only really in the room to sleep as theres so much to do and see 24/7. Just because your staying in one hotel doesn't stop you form sampling the delights of another.. most of my guests ate daily at the bellagio buffet without paying the price of having to stay there. The hotels that are slightly cheaper tend to be at other ends of the strip and involve lots of walking! The Imperial had everything the guests needed and for a week they all paid less than what I was paying for 1 night at the Bellagio. Average cost was £150 pp for a week.

Rooms were clean and of generous size with two double beds and I would say compared to our Travelodge standards. If your bothered about a great view though then its not for you as views ranged from looking over the car park, to next door building, to pool and to the strip.

Guests booked both the standard and superior rooms and I would say the superior were better as they had been updated.

There is a karaoke bar in the hotel which claimed many a late night distraction on the way back to the room.. not that we needed much encouragement to drink more and make fools of ourselves. There is also a couple of cheap drinking holes just outside the hotel offering things like $2 margaritas... a welcome sight given the prices in most other establishments for drinks.

If you are merely looking for somewhere clean and well located for your trip then I would definitely recommend the Imperial. If this is full I have also heard good reviews about the Barbary Coast (opposite Caesars) but haven't seen the rooms myself and it doesn't have a pool.

Whilst out there we did the grand canyon.. I would recommend doing it by helicopter from Vegas.. don't do the 4 hour bus journey to the canyon.. If you get on the helicopter in Vegas you get to fly over the hoover dam etc and you don't have to endure hours on the bus.. I did that the first time I went and never again! There are lots of trips available.. we did the grand canyon and ranch trip where we got off at a ranch in the canyon and went horse riding and then you get the helicopter home.

With regard to flights.. BMI and Airtours (or my travel) also fly direct from some airports if that helps. Although another option is to fly continental and stop off via new york for a couple of days on way back to make the most of the shopping!

Hope that helps :-D

Really helpful, cheers. We've booked our flights with Virgin, not the cheapest but I love flying with them for their great service plus I get airmiles.

We do want to do the Grand Canyon and ranch experience, so cool tip.

Thanks :thumbsup:

Casinos really fantastic .... to look at or shop in - be careful. They are all connected and have no exit signs. They don't want you to leave.

Really sad to see the gamblers - they dont take coins. You have to get a type of credit card which you load with money, then place in machine slot but attached to you with curly extendible wire. I thought of the Matrix, with everyone attached to the gaming machines.

The card tables, roulette were more normal as they used chips. The worst thing you can do is to win early on as you then think " I will win with the next one... OK the next one ... and so on" As an experience it is really brilliant and I would go back especially to see the Grand Canyon.

Update:

Off in a few weeks and really excited, got a good deal on Treasure Island (being from Bristol and nicknamed 'pirates' seemed appropriate lol) All of the other wedding guests are staying at the Flamingo but TI got better guest reviews on Trip Advisor.

Will post holiday pics when I get back, need to buy myself a new pocket camera.

Thanks for all your help and guides x :thumbsup:
