Unbelievable hotels, great entertainment, hilarious people watching, stunning excess and spectacle: There's nothing like Las Vegas anywhere in the world. I've stayed at 12 different hotels and I've seen 10 different shows. Every trip to Las Vegas has been a unique experience.

Wynn is great for couples. Encore is a fun place to party. Standard guest rooms at Wynn are the best in Vegas. Beds are very comfortable. The ritzy casino and conservatory are comparable to Bellagio's. The swimming pool is even nicer than the beautiful pool at Bellagio. Great shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Wynn equals or surpasses Bellagio in every respect except one- the Bellagio fountains.
A great place for couples. Bellagio exudes old world charm. Lake Como, Italy theme. Spectacular dancing fountains. Stunning conservatory. Beautiful lobby capped with a stunning art glass ceiling. The amazing Cirque du Soleil show O is performed here in an indoor lake. Great restaurants including Picasso, Le Cirque, and Olives. Elegant pool. There aren't enough superlatives to describe all of the treasures and temptations of Bellagio.
New hotel. Rooms are huge and beds are comfortable. Palazzo is attached to the Venetian and the Sands Convention Center. Good location near Wynn and Fashion Show Mall. Probably great for conventioneers and older couples. Palazzo just seemed to lack the same exciting vibe I get at Wynn, Cosmopolitan, Bellagio, or Mirage. Still one of the nicest places to stay if the price is right.
A great place for couples. Loved the Polynesian theme, lush folliage, tropical pool, volcano, white lions and dolphins. Both shows here are spectacular. Love is my all-time favorite, and Terry Fator is hilarious. Don't let the puppets fool you; Fator is awesome! Kokomo's has delicious food served within an artificial rainforest. Carnegie Deli has huge sandwiches - pig out or split one with a friend. Guest rooms were recently renovated and still look new. Beds are very comfortable.
A fun place to party. MGM's Lazy River Pool is the best free pool party in Las Vegas; I've seen many hilarious bachelor / bachelorette parties here. KA is a good show. The stage is amazing and the performers are incredible athletes. CSI Experience is fun. MGM Grand has some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. Joel Robuchon is the best of the best. Guest rooms are undergoing renovation this year, and all rooms should look new in 2012.
A fun place to party. Playboy Club, Ghostbar, Rain, and Moon all have nice views of the Las Vegas Strip. The Palms boasts some of the best restaurants in town, and the best video poker and slot machine odds near the Strip. Stayed in the Fantasy Tower. Furniture looked new. Bed was very comfortable. Flat screen TV. In-room safe. Pool was closed for winter. Biggest downside is you need a car to get to the Strip.
The fanciest hotel in downtown Las Vegas. Golden Nugget has a great pool and a slide with sharks swimming behind fiberglass walls. Freemont Street Experience light show is just outside the hotel. Within a five minute walk, there are a dozen casinos with better odds than you can usually find on the Strip. Carson Tower rooms are standard with old furniture. Rush Tower rooms are brand new. Every room comes with a bathtub and a safe. Biggest downside is you need a car to get to the Strip.
A fun place to party. Tons of energy provided by a younger crowd. Fun roller coaster - especially at night. Saw Zumanity and it was a great show. Fun bars in a Greenwich village atmosphere. Loved the theme here. NYNY casino is Vegas kitsch at its best. Good sushi at Chin Chin. Good pizza at Sirrico's. Good coffee shop fare at Americas. Loved the decor and comfort of our Park Avenue room. Biggest downside was the small and uninspired pool.
A great place for couples. Girls love this hotel. The indoor decor is French cobblestone village with boutique shops. Mon Ami Gabi is a great French bistro overlooking the Strip. The bathrooms have separate showers and bathtubs and two sinks. Furniture is old, and there's a little wear and tear in the basic rooms, but the beds are still comfortable. Pool is okay, but not great.
A fun place to party when you're on a budget. Voodoo Lounge boasts an outside dance floor with a spectacular view of the Strip. The pool is small here, unless you pay extra to enjoy the larger pool at Rio's Bikini Beach Party. Guest rooms at Rio are large, but the furniture is old. All rooms include bathtubs and safes and refrigerators. Rio offers continuous free shuttle service to Bally's and Harrahs on the Strip until 1 am. Penn and Teller perform a comedy magic show here that makes fun of other magicians' lame tricks.
A budget hotel on the South Strip. Standard rooms are older and cheaper. Widescreen rooms have newer furniture and cost a few dollars more. Both rooms comes with a shower, but no bathtub and no in-room safe. Excalibur is a good value if you're on a tight budget.
A budget hotel on the center strip. Bally's rooms are old, but they're clean. Great location across the street from Bellagio. Bally's is connected to Paris by a shopping esplanade. Bally's production show is Jubilee - the last tradtional chorus girl show in Las Vegas.
