Ceasars Palace is unbelievable. This place is bigger than anyone could imagine. The whole place is done in an ancient greek theme. I would recommend going and checking out Celene Dion's concert. You will enjoy this. The palace is divided into casino and then shopping area. The shopping area houses some of the finest names in designers. If you do not live in a big city, it is worth walking through the stores just to see some of this stuff they are selling. The staff is very professional and helpful in the casino. All of the cocktail waitress are dressed in toga type outfits that are cute to look at.
Flamingo is located right in the middle of the Vegas action. It is a nicely kept casino that is very clean and maintained. The casino is very spacious and the floor plan is very open. You do not get the claustrophobic feeling like in some casinos where you are packed in. Take a walk outside around the nature area and see their flamingos. They are very beautiful to look at. The flamingo is a nice place to hang out.
This casino is a lot of fun. It is not newly renovated but still seems very inviting. We played a lot of table games here because the minimum bets were very low. They also offered FREE lessons to anyone wanting to learn how to play craps. We took the lessons and the instructors taught us everything we needed to know. Then they let us play with their chips and practice.I am very impressed with their casino and their employees.
We have stayed at Harrahs and were treated like royalty the entire stay. The rooms are spacious and decorated nicely. The casino is huge and very entertaining. They have a nice table games area. Harrahs usually is running some type of promotion that you can enter daily and try to win something. The shows are Harrahs are great. I would recommend going to see the Mac King show. It has to be one of the funniest shows on the strip. It is also very cheap. If you join the slot club you can get free admission with the price of a drink. I love this place. Go and visit if you can!
This is one of the smaller low class casinos on the strip. I did visit it often though because I felt like I could win here. They offered a coupon with their slot club for free $ money to play the slots. You could only play on certain slots and not many people were winning off of these machines. It was fun to play though for free. It occupied some of my time and I didn't have to spend my own money.
We had to check out the Palms because we keep seeing it on TV with all the celebritys. It is a nice looking hotel and casino but honestly it isn't everything it is made to be on TV. The slots here are very tight. I play many times and never won anything. I would recommend the buffet here. We both thought the food was plentiful and excellent in taste.
The Rio is a fun hotel that is located off the strip. There is always something exciting going on here. They have their cocktail servers stop and do dance numbers or songs on raised platforms. You can watch this while you gamble. They also offer a free carnival show that is in the air. It is one of the best free shows in vegas. I recommend going to see Ron Lucas and the Scintas here. Both shows were two of my favorites in Vegas. This place is always alive.
The Rivera is on the older end of the Las vegas strip. This is one of the last hotels that have not renovated their interior. Even though it is older, it is still very quaint and enjoyable. They have a nice area in the front that you can spin a free slot pull and try to win something. Each pull is guaranteed something even if it is a mug or a deck of cards. We stopped by here once a day to pull the machine. Try your luck if you are down there and stop in at least to get your free pull.
This place is not a place I would want to stay. It is a hotel that is themed towards children but I would not let my child run around this hotel. The crowd was a little sketchy on the night we went. It is a run down looking hotel and casino. It does offer a theme park but again, I would not let any child go in there alone while you gambled. This hotel needs a major renovation. I would have liked to see more security around the hotel/casino since I saw so many children wandering around by themselves. It would have made me feel safer for the children's sake.
The Sahara is located near the end of the vegas strip. It is a nice hotel but it is not the most luxureous. The casino is a little older than some on the strip but the action is still as good. I played a lot of poker in the poker rooms here. It is a great place to play and not have to lose a lot. The stakes are pretty low. If you are wanting to learn how to play, I would suggest practicing here before you go to the big hotels.
We also tried the buffet because we had a coupon and it was not good. I would not recommend the buffet.
