10 days to go! My boyfriend and I are going to Vegas 9/30-10/6. This is my first trip there, he's been there a couple times. We are staying at the Riviera. I had some(read: a lot! ) of complaints about staying there as there are so many more nicer places. We have to stay there for his race car convention at that hotel. I booked a reservation for a one-bedroom suite.. which from what I've read.. don't seem all that bad. Since he will be occupied there with that most of the day.. I can do what I want during the day. When I go away I love to gamble and sit by the pool and read and drink. He doesn't like to gamble .. or sit by a pool. So I plan to do both of those during the day while he''s racing. Has anyone recently stayed at the Riviera? How far of a walk is it to the Encore/Wynn and can I sneak into their pools maybe? lol Will it be crowded during this time? I'd prefer not to be near crowds they make me kinda nervous.
