Best Value Hotels In Las Vegas
Fun is the name of the game and Vegas has it in spades, with hundreds of casinos to choose from how does the novice Vegas Tripper know where to go? You ask us, of course. Here's our list of the best casinos in Vegas, in no particular order, based only on the criteria: Did we have fun here? If you feel we missed something, let us know.
You'll note by this listing that we've included accomodations in all price ranges... VALUE and AMENITIES are the keys here (as is quality of experience). This isn't a complete or definitive list, so check back for changes.
Best Hotels In Las Vegas (in all price ranges)
Wynn Las Vegas
Is there any greater hotel/gaming experience to be had in this universe or elsewhere? We think not. Wynn Las Vegas is tops. You'll pay through the nose, but it's worth it.
The Golden Nugget
Classy rooms, great food, great gaming, playable slots, and good vibes are what the Golden Nugget are all about. Folks who give downtown a bad rap, have obviously never been to The Nug. We are still curious as to what will happen to the Nugget with new owners Landry's... but for now we're keeping it on the list.
Fun slots, the Legends Blackjack pit, Jim the blackjack dealer from Long Beach, Ippy's deli, the Luv Tub rooms, the Double Triple Wild Cherry Slots, and Video Poker are just a few of the reasons why we love the Imperial Palace. Plus its next door to O'Shea's, another of our favorite joints. The IP isn't anything fancy, but its a great entry level joint for the frugal minded Vegas tripper.
Main St. Station
Main St. Station combines beautiful woodwork, easy comps for full-pay video poker, the best brewpub in the state, and an honest-to-goodness hunk of the Berlin wall mounted behind the urinals. What more could a person ask? (Nick Christenson - Las Vegas Casino Death Watch
Sleek designs, classy rooms, great food, hot medium limit tables (and lots of em) make the Mirage one of our favorite of the higher end Strip carpet joints to frequent. How can you not like a Steve Wynn joint even if he dosen't own it anymore?
Very possibly the only Vegas joint that still has an old-school gambling hall vibe to it. With a little imagination you can still hear the piano player banging out ragtime on an old out-of-tune Steinway as Doc Holliday, Benny Binion and Doyle Brunson de-holster their revolvers for a game of Texas Hold 'Em. Great vibes here. We love Binions.
The joint that started the mega-resort craze. Its 60's chic meets Greek architecture, top notch table games, top notch dealers and great vibes prove that few, if any, have caught up. The new Augustus Tower adds to the proceedings... we have a hunch the old Caesars towers will slowly come down one by one replaced with Augustus quality amenities (Harrahs announced in April 2006 a $1Billion upgrade to Caesars)
Its a shame that the Sahara isn't two blocks further south on the strip. Its vibrations of the past swing like Sinatra, turn on a dime and dance through your dreams like a pair of hot buttered dice scoring point after point after point. Too bad they cheapened the image of the joint with the NASCAR Cafe, but... whatchagonnado?
