Accomodations in Vegas

I am looking for a nice, clean hotel in Las Vegas. It is for a family of five and being on "The Strip" is not a prerequisite. What I care about the most is easy (walking, transit,taxi) distance from the sights and reasonably priced. We will be there in high season. Thanks for the help, Vic.W.

Try doing a search on this site under Las Vegas. You'll find lots of advice about hotels. You probably do want to stay on the Strip, as that is the area where everything is. Some suggestions are Ballys, Bellagio(depending on your budget), Paris, Ceazars - all are mid strip. Also visit the discussion board at www.lvol.com for lots of advice from people who are Vegas fanatics.

I haven't been to Vegas in a while, but friends of ours just returned. They stayed at the Paris and said they would go back there again. The price was reasonable, and they liked the location, the rooms, service, etc. Of course there are more expensive and extravagant places (but why waste them on the kids, who won't know the difference anyway?)

I stayed at the Luxor and it was nice and reasonably priced. Easy access to Mandalay Bay. Only drawback was it was at the far end of the strip. Would definitely recommend it.

For a decent hotel on the Strip at a good price, check into the Tropicana. It's one of the older hotels and therefore isn't as glamourous or fancy, but does have a great pool and a very reasonable room rate. I just stayed there last week and found my room to be more than suitable for the price. And it's located directly across from NYNY, MGM Grand and within a short shuttle ride to the rest of the hotels.

Once we stayed at the Hawthorn Suites. It is behind the Tropicana and across the street from the very back of the MGM. Good location. We got a 2 bedroom suite (used to be a small apartment) for $99 a night during high season. Also comes with free breakfast.
Check with the 1-800 operator for their number if interested. It is quiet and does not have a casino attached so you should be able to get a room any time.

Vic,
Just returned from Vegas two days (2/11) ago. First of all, the only true sights on the strip are the resorts itself and what they contain as far as themes etc. I would try to stay Mid-Strip as you would be at least "starting" from the center of the Strip when you left your hotel. Be advised...it is much too far to walk with any comfort at all from one end of the strip to the other. I would recommend the Las Vegas Strip Trolley. Only $1.50/person to take you to any area of the Strip. You do have to repay if you exit and get back on. The best kid-friendly hotels (albeit not mid-strip) are the MGM Grand and Circus Circus. Good luck and have fun! We stayed at the Venetian...absolutely spectacular! Huge rooms and a beautiful resort!

If you haven't bought your tickets, I'd suggest looking at various air/land travel packages. I go to Vegas fairly often and usually book using this option. Not sure where you'll be coming from but try Southwest Airlines and or America West (somewhat skeptical w/ them as their planes are consistently late).
