Upcoming trip planned to Vegas. Land at the airport on an early Saturday evening... first hotel during my trip will be The Orleans. Haven't stayed there before. How would you get there? And for a taxi, what is the best route to ask? My choices are: A) Taxi. I am solo. I know the fare will probably be close to $20 with tip. Which route to ask for? I was planning on "take Swenson to Tropicana, and Tropicana to The Orleans." Is this correct? I don't want to get long-hauled. Is my twenty a good estimate with tip? B) Shuttle bus. Many trips ago, I would use them, but I became disillusioned with them after having to wait so long for the shuttle bus to arrive, and then to fill up (with luggage packed in the rear), and then the numerous stops before my final destination... Unless you can convince me that somehow there's a shuttle bus company that goes to The Orleans consistently quickly, I'll pass... C) RTC (city) busses. I was thinking about 119 North to Maryland Parkway, and then 201 West to Tropicana. This would be a grand total cost to me of $3 (2 hour pass). The thing is, waiting at the airport for bus #1 to arrive, and then boarding it, and then riding it to stop #1, and then getting off, and then waiting for bus #2 to arrive, and then boarding it, and waiting for stop #2 to come, and disembarking, and then crossing busy Tropicana on a Saturday night with luggage, all to save a few bucks, isn't my idea of a fun way to arrive in Las Vegas... As quoted in Lethal Weapon, "I'm too old for this s___!" ....so, O Hallowed Members of VMB, please guide me! Thanks!!
