I am planning a trip in April. Hotel advice? I have only stayed downtown in the past and hope to stay on the strip this time. Thanks!

I like to stay somewhere fairly central on the strip so I can mostly walk to the other hotels.....I've stayed at Harrahs, Paris, Bally, Flamingo. Paris is my favorite but price is definitely a factor. Some of the older hotels like Flamingo are perfectly fine, just not as fancy as the more expensive ones. April should be pretty nice, weather-wise

My husband and I stayed at the Trump last time. It's across from the Wynn. We did a Priceline for it and got a great deal. It was really nice and had no casino or smoke.

We stayed off the strip but went and wandered through several - Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, Paris, Aria, and the Venetian. If we ever go back I want to stay at the Venetian. It was beautiful and had much more to offer in the way of shopping and different food options than the others. Loved it.

Mirage

Maybe it's because of the movie Vegas Vacation, but I just love the Mirage. I love the location, the employees, and the price is usually pretty good. I've never stayed at The Venetian or the Bellagio, but I think they are pretty nice, too. Actually, I think I would like any of them.

price or quality?

If you are looking for quality, Aria. All. The. Way! Beautiful, most comfortable beds and pillows I've ever slept on, awesome room, good location. If you are looking to be economical, Bally's is great. Super location, user friendly, low prices, great restaurants, just overall easy for pool, tram, etc.

Where you stay will depend on your budget. I have stayed at the Venetian and loved it, but it was for a conference so it was paid for. I liked the Luxor, it was not as expensive and still pretty nice. A long walk if you are staying in the towers though. New York New York is nice and decently priced as is MGM. I liked MGM as it was on the monorail stop and made getting around fairly easy. If you get an Mlife account (look them up online) you get room discounts at MLife hotels on the strip.

Have a great time in Vegas!! I love going there every year

Tips:

Mid-strip is best for hotel selection.

It is farther from one hotel to another than it appears to be.

Check Trip Advisor hotel board for Las Vegas hotels and read to get an idea of how people feel about them.

Last year we stay at the Elara. It was fabulous . The lobby opens up into the Miracle Mile Shops which leads to the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. It is a great timeshare. Full size living room large kitchen and bathroom. Great Stay!

Just got back last weekend and stayed at Bellagio, it's pricey but I'm a M Life member and got a great deal. Food was great and staff are very friendly. I also like the Mandalay Bay. More of a younger vibe there.

The Aria...great location. Can take tram to Bellagio. Or Bally's . Both easy to get around from. Eat at Paris, Mon Gabi and the pub in the aria. Do not stay at Mandalay Bay. Too far out. Use the trams. Cheaper than taxi.

Last time I stayed there was at the MGM Grand. Of course it's not the newest hotel, but they had renovated it, so it's like it was pretty new, yet without the costs of the much newer hotels. It was great enough...doesn't have tot be a villa or anything & I'd prefer to have some money left for shopping, shows, & good food!
