    A Fairmont resort, preferably out at LV Paiute Golf Resort (duh, put a resort at the "resort")

    TI back to being TI, not some smoky bad-chain-fronted wreck that has no clue what is it

    OK, I'm getting on the bandwagon here: a mass transit (non-bus) tie to the airport going down the Strip to downtown

    No repeat of the fall display at the Bellagio Conservatory ... boring

    There is no way to call the LINQ project other than a massive improvement. However, it could've been done less Everytown Retailtainment and more unique, kinda a LINQ/Fremont East morph. Vegas has spots for that kinda re-development all over the map.

    1. Adios to Criss Angel. The changes they made to the Luxor are sad enough but having to see signs for his crappy show makes the place even sadder.
    2. A non-Cirque show that I would want to see.
    3. Me in Vegas more than once a year.
    4. Expanded happy hours in some of my favorite restaurants in Vegas.
    5. The implosion of Excalibur. This place is an incubator for germs.

    Escalators that work.

    OK, I'll say it. Keurig's and fridges in every room :).

    I totally agree about the mass transit tie to the airport going down the strip to downtown.

    No people using animals on the strip to get people to give more money.

    1. The show in the sky back at Rio
    2. Agree on light rail or monorail from airport
    3. Not being nickled and dimed as a visitor to Vegas that gambles exclusively
    4. A return back the the themed casinos (I know they are full of cheese but isn't Vegas supposed to have some cheese to it?)
    5. Less shopping and more gambling I do not need to see a Walgreens or CVS at every other property.

    1. Uber being able to operate between the airport and the Strip OR between the hotels on the Strip.
    2. Airport train between the airport and the hotels on the Strip.

    I'm not going to be greedy. It just makes me happy when I visit a city with awesome transportation (ex. Hong Kong).

    Indeed! I despise these pieces of filth with every fiber of my being. :grrr: I always mean to bring some "treats" with me so I can give the dogs a little joy without helping out the evil garbage that uses them. Sadly, I always forget.

    My five:

    1. More restaurant diversity in places touristas like me frequent (read: casinos)
    2. Better beer options in casinos
    3. A beach...with an actual ocean attached to it (you didn't say it had to be feasible, right?)
    4. A bunch of sexy redheads with eyes for thecarve
    5. Better gambling at less than HL stakes
     
    Number 50!

    1. No more character actors looking for tips for pictures
    2. The return of a few smaller properties. I miss the 2001 strip.
    3. Shops in the casinos that are affordable to the average joe where you don't feel like you're being watched constantly.
    4. The end of construction.
    5. No more character actors looking for tips for pictures. Gawd, I really hate that.

    I'm old. Put Vegas back the way it used to be. (And while you are at it, get off my lawn.)

    1) 3 to 2 payouts for blackjack at all bet levels
    2) $2 call drinks at all casino bars
    3) Shows with tits and feathers (and this from a gay man, no less)
    4) No more resort fees
    5) No strollers allowed - strictly enforced

    Require proper attire (jackets for men) at nice restaurants.
    Give domestic players the same offers as international.
    Eradicate the lame college spring break crowd from MGM and replace them with the hot/high class crowd from Wynncore.
    Have the Terrace suites at MGM run by the Skylofts with butler/concierge service, etc.
    Bring back the good golf tourneys with nice swag and promo chips.

    1. Light rail, free, from the airport to the strip hotels to put those thieving SOB cab drivers out of business or at least make them competitive, Las Vegas has the second highest cab rates in the USA and they are stealing your money by long hauling you.

    2. Implode Bally's. Mold infested rathole. Put another motel 6 or super 8 there and it will be way better. Or a nuke waste dump. Anything would be preferred.

    3. Section out every casino 50% for non-smokers.

    4. More cops to fine jaywalkers who tie up traffic by dodging across the street. I just saw it in front of NYNY. Three morons almost got hit, damn near caused a rear end accident. Should be $3000 fine first offense.

    5. Pamphlet with local traffic laws in every hotel room and every rental car so out of state idiots will stop texting on their cellphones. Traffic has been aggravating me recently, can you tell?

    1. Bring back some class to Vegas....dress code in all casinos.

    2. All casinos should be forced to design and build a modern walkway....same way MC and NyNy did.

    3. Keep all the whiners out of Vegas. Make them sign a waiver that if they complain...they are exited from the city. For a city that accommodates millions of tourists each year. Vegas does a damn good job!!!!

    4. Bring back the cocktail service of yesteryear. I don't drink alcohol but even getting a bottle of water is a pain in the ass.

    5. For some reason, I can handle the porn slappers while walking (Vegas has always solicited the sex trade). BUT..remove the vagrants. Nothing kills my "Vegas Buzz" more than getting harassed.
