Las Vegas: Hotels, casinos and nightlife!

Description

Description

I’ve already been to Vegas several times, and whenever I go back there’s something different. Even if you just go to the places you already know, things will never repeat exactly like the last time. This way it’s impossible to get tired of this city!

Yes, I know, the Las Vegas Strip hotels are amazing. For that reason I love walking around the common areas and casinos. I’ve already stayed in 90% of the Strip hotels (and some downtown ones too), so I know exactly what I’m talking about.

Paris is one of my favorites not only for the hotel itself but also because of its location. This was the first hotel where I stayed in the first time I came to the city, in 2005, so I guess it was love at first sight… But there are other awesome ones too, like The Venetian, Caesars Palace, Bellagio, Wynn, the Cosmopolitan, Mandalay Bay etc.

 

Hotel prices vary a lot depending on the day of the week and time of the year. If you can avoid Fridays and Saturdays, holidays and summer, you got good chances of getting a great deal. Now, for instance (I just checked out of curiosity), the rate at the Paris is $59 and at the Flamingo $35!!! I’ve seen days you cannot find anything for less than $280 over there. Of course room rates also increase when there are major conventions in town (and there’s always something going on in Vegas… This is the city of conventions and events), so sometimes it’s difficult. But here, unlike any other tourist city in the world, you have real chances of staying in a great 4-5 star casino hotel paying less than you would at a 2-3 star roadside one.

Here are my Las Vegas videos:

Part 1:

First, let me explain that the purpose of this video was to give you a feel for Las Vegas. I was in town for the NAB Show, which is a “must go” event for the broadcast industry. Luckily, after the event I booked 2 extra days so that I could walk around and show you guys some of my favorite places.

These are the locations featured:

Paris Las Vegas Hotel Casino
Bellagio Las Vegas
The Venetian Las Vegas Hotel Casino
Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel Casino

 

Part 2:

Locations featured:

The Linq
  • High Roller – O ponto de observação em forma de roda gigante mais alto do mundo
Freemont Experience downtown
Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
New York New York Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
Lindo Michoacan restaurant

Of course you don’t need to go out of town to eat good Mexican food! There are so many good restaurants inside the very same casino hotels I showed in the video. There are even 2 other Lindo Michoacan’s much closer! The reason I chose that one specifically is because from there you can have a great view of the Las Vegas Strip and its hotels. Really awesome. Unfortunately that day was very windy and there was a sand storm approaching, so I couldn’t take any good picture of the view! 🙁 I only included one in the video, and it’s really grayish compared to all others… I’ve been to this restaurant quite a few times now and have never identified myself as a journalist.

Where to go shopping in Las Vegas

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed the videos. Next year I’ll most likely return to Vegas, and I promise to give you even more ideas of how to have fun!

During this visit we stayed at the. We chose the hotel for a few reasons:

– The location is fantastic, which allowed us to use the spare time to shoot videos
– They offered free shuttles to the NAB Show, the event we were attending at the Convention Center

The hotel

Pros:
– Perfect location at the Strip, within walking distance to other awesome hotels and attractions
– Close to the airport (but not so close, don’t worry! You are not under the plane routes!), so a taxi ride is inexpensive
– Great facilities and attractions inside the hotel
– Free parking, like all hotels at the Strip
– Clean and smelling good. It may sound strange to say that, but some older hotels in Las Vegas have a strong smell of cigarette in all common areas. This is because smoking is allowed in the casinos and the corridors. As there’s carpet everywhere, certain hotels stink!
– Great amenities: pool, sauna, gym, hair salon, spa, ATM’s, etc

Cons:
– On the expensive side. You can find cheaper options if you are on a budget, especially if there are events in town
– Check in is at 4pm (!!!) and check out at 11 am. If you arrive earlier, you may be lucky or they may charge you a $25 fee for “early check in”. Believe me, it happened to a friend…
– Be careful with the fridge, as it electronically checks if you remove something. So even if you take out a water to read the fine prints and put it back seconds later, they will charge you for the bottle
– All those great amenities have a cost: a mandatory $29 per day resort fee (on top of the room rate). At least it includes the internet…
