Sorry, I just edited to indicate Eastside Cannery, not Arizona Charlie's. In a few days I have two conferences that I will be attending (tragic, I know) and have a Friday and Saturday night between the two. I am considering either Eastside Cannery or M Resort. I will have a rental car and share my pros/cons. Pro's for East Side would be close proximity to cheap craps and food on Boulder Hwy. Pro's for M would be a nicer location, room and pool. Negatives for Eastside would be not as nice of a property, smoky environment and just slightly more expensive. Negative for M is that it is a destination out in the middle of nowhere with little surrounding it. We will have a rental car and the two conference properties are Bellagio and Aria so I am looking forward to getting away from the strip for a while. Was going to stay downtown but it's Bike Fest so I am dumping my Golden Nugget reservation.
