    we stayed at hooters. it was pretty decent there. its right by the new york, mgm and i think the tropicana. not too crowded, games are cheap if youre broke(or almost broke) and they have a hooters, right there. we stayed somewhere else a few years ago i cant really remember so that not saying much for the place.

    I suggest Bally's, nothin too fancy but a great location smack dab in the center of the strip! It is usually cheaper than the other hotels too.

    I've actually stayed at all 4 places:

    I'm partial to the Monte Carlo ... but, perhaps not the reasons you'd want.

    Their casino is actually well lit by comparison ... something I appreciate. They've got a brew pub (mmm, beer). Rooms were great and I just liked the overall atmophere there. I must have won a lot too, because this is all I can think of, oh, and the waitresses at the time were hot and wearing low LOW cut cocktail outfits.

    The Luxor was nice, I like to gamble there, they've got a ton of tables. But, it's a little too far away from everything else on the strip ... granted, if you're going for Vegoose, perhaps you won't spend much time on the strip. I stayed in the pyramid (there are more rooms not in the pyramid), which was cool as you went to your room in an inclinator ... but, sadly, the sound from the main floor echoed up thorugh the pyramid all night. Annoying.

    New York New York, wasn't impressed at all ... shitty food options in the hotel and the gaming floor was tiny, the least amout of table games for any of these places. Nice looking from the outside, disappointing on the inside.

    Treasure Island ... it was ok, got to be in the mood for all that Pirates of the Carribean crap ... if you are, lots of good places inside to get schnockered off fruity rum drinks ... casino was nice ... and it's centrally located on the strip ... that's a huge bonus if you like casino/bar hoping.

    This is based on stays over the past 10 years ... so, perhaps all these critiques are not current. But if I had to rank them ....

    Monte Carlo
    Treasure Island
    Luxor

    I hate to hijack someone else's thread, but I want to go for a good Italian meal while I'm in Vegas in December. I've been to Fiamma at MGM and really liked that one. Anyone have any other suggestions? (I've also been to Trattoria Del Lupo, but I preferred Fiamma.)

    pretty standard ... roomy, but not huge ... actually NY NY was a noticably smaller ... I don't think they are going to put me on their marketing team any time soon.

    I cannot speak for Hooters rooms ... but the wings are tasty.

    I've only stayed at the Monte Carlo - rooms seemed a pretty decent size in comparison to other American hotels i've stayed in.

    Also, the Yard of Margarita at the mexican restaurant in the Luxor is lethal.

    does it really matter? youre only sleeping and getting ready there. if anything, just choose based on their location.

    Don't stay there. Not to say it wasn't nice, but when there are places like Caesar's Palace and the Bellagio, why would you stay anywhere else?
    Bicycle, you're keeping me sane.

    $$$

    What about Imperial Palace? That is relatively cheap... and isnt that in the area of Cesears Palace and the Belagio and whatnot?

    So Vegoose is pretty far down the strip then eh? Well Ron, if your place doesnt work out, a ride would be very much appreciated. Oh, and if you are having troubles finding places that will let you check in on Friday, check out www.expedia.ca Maybe its .com for you down in the states, either way, I found tons of hotels that have check ins for Friday that are in all price ranges.

    HOOTERS!!!!, isnt great but its not bad. the rooms are a pretty good size, like i said they also have a hooters restaurant, and a diner that has and awesome ceaser salad.(just ask for the ceaser on the side). well you cant really mess up a ceaser but anyway. the room was pretty clean, they have a pretty big swimming pool with i think 3 hot tubs. they have a newer area of the hotel also if i remember correctly, we didnt stay in that wing(no pun intended) but the room we did stay in was pretty good. they have a pretty cool design for the rooms, tiki style almost. feels inviting.

    Assuming you're OK with the rates on all of these, I'd pick New York New York. I've stayed at all but Monte Carlo.

    I stayed in a suite at Luxor, and even the suite wasn't that great. I'd stay there again if it was cheap.

    Also stayed in a suite at Treasure Island- it was very nice, but I don't know what the regular rooms are like. Note...this was renovated the most recently of the 4.

    Stayed in a standard room at New York New York, it was great, although kind of long and narrow. The casino is beautiful, and not huge and confusing. You can get off your elevator and walk through the casino and out to the strip in just a few minutes. It would also be a good choice if you're going to a House Of Blues show. You can walk across the skywalk and hop on a free tram to Mandalay Bay. (Of course, Luxor is even closer, you can walk there in a few minutes.)

    I said in the other thread that I wouldn't pay a premium to stay at NYNY even though I love the casino. But if you're comfortable with the rates, it's a good choice, and the best of these 4.

    If you want to stay on the strip and money is not an issue, I suggest the following...

    Ceasar's Palace
    Bellagio
    Venetian
    Mandalay Bay
    Wynne

    If you want to stay on the strip and money is an issue...

    Cricus Circus
    Tropicana
    Excalibur
    Treasure Island
    New York, New York

    If you want to stay somewhat off the strip and have the time of your fucking life...

    In the GENERAL area of those, but still quite a hike.

    Flamingo is closer to those, nicer, and usually similar in price, but I haven't compared them for Vegoose.

    Just got back from Vegas last week. Stayed at the MGM Signature..

    http://www.signaturemgmgrand.com/

    Got the Jr. Suite.. paid $260 a night..salt water swimming pool, free valet parking, amazing room (can easily sleep 4. 1 king size and 1 queen pull out and has a small kitchen) You can also get a view of the strip if you check in early enough and request it.. the only down side - it's about a 5 minute walk to the casino.. Food is so expensive, therefore we brought a few meals and cooked them in our room.
    Other places i've stayed: MGM Grand (rooms ok - hotel / casino is a labrynth) - Luxor (liked the room, hated the casion and hotel set-up) - The Mirage - 2nd favorite place (room was great and the strip is very accesible)

    The HardRock was probably the best place for gambling.. good luck and have fun..
