Orleans Casino and Hotel. Las Vegas

We will be in Las Vegas on a Tuesday and Wednesday during a period when room rates on the strip are sky high.

I have found a "Deluxe Room with View" at the Orleans, which is two to three miles from The Strip.

The rate is attractive.

We will have a car.

Will we be happy at the Orleans, or would we be better off at Homewood Suites or some such similar place in Henderson?

Hi Happy Trails- I stayed at the Orleans 3 years ago and really liked it. It's a lot close to the action/ strip than Henderson (stayed there also once). It was an easy 5 minute drive (they also have a shuttle) to NYNY where we parked the car and explored South and Center strip. We maybe back there in June, and it's one of the few places DH enjoys staying in Vegas. He doesn't gamble, so he's happy with the bowling alley and movie theatres there.

I visited the Orleans casino and had lunch a couple of months ago. Everything is adequate at Orleans. Easy parking. Acceptable restaurants with a casino nicer than anything downtown at the bottom of your elevator. You are five minutes from the strip. I would stay at Orleans before I stayed at a non-casino hotel or drive out to Henderson.

Thanks for your replies.

I have since found Hilton Grand Vacations Club at the Flamingo, which is on the Strip and I'm going to post a query about it.

I stayed at the Orleans for $28 a night mid week on a Mastercard Special. It was very nice with larger rooms than the TI on the strip. Alot of locals.

I have stayed at the Orleans 4 or 5 times and it is quite sufficent. It is nothing fancy, but is very clean and the rooms are very good size. I would definitely recommend the Orleans.
As mentioned before it is maybe 5 mins.
which would probably be right around 1 mile.

I still think it's a good option for you Happytrails. ITA and the room size, location, dining, etc.

Hilton Grand Vacations Club is very nice. Last time I stayed at the Flamingo, people who were staying there were raving about it.

Another vote for the Orleans. We've stayed there. Not posh, but acceptable - both the food and the rooms. To us it was a good value.

Happytrails- So which one is perfect for you: Hilton GVC or the Orleans? Inquiring minds and all.

I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Orleans, and I thought the place was excellent in all respects. My room was 550 square feet, clean and comfortable, and a great value at $45 per day. It is much cheaper than anything on the strip.The restaurants served good food at very reasonable prices. All the employees--check
in clerks, bartenders, and dealers--were
friendly and helpful. The shuttle provides free transportation to the strip from 9:30 am to 12:00 am every day.

Thank you. It is highly unusual to get such consistently positive comments about a hotel.

Remember, there is no 12 a.m., only 12 meridian (noon) and 12 p.m. (post meridian). Now you know...(that I'll do anything to avoid getting back to work today)
