    My wife and I will be in Vegas from 10/1/15-10/4/15. It is a very expensive weekend for hotels, so we booked a 3 night stay at Westgate. We have never stayed there before and I was curious about the cab ride. Do I still ask the driver to not take the tunnel? It seems to me that is should be a relatively straight shot from the airport that would not require a ride through the tunnel or on the strip.
    Thanks for your help.

    Shouldn't even have to say no tunnel, it would take twice as long and double the fare. Correct route would be Swenson out of the airport, left on Harmon, right on Paradise which takes you straight to the Westgate. Fare should be around $15-$18.

    Great minds think alike! We have a 3 day buy 1 get 1 free monorail pass that we will use for our show Saturday night at the Hard Rock and then on Sunday when we go to the airport. We will take the monorail from the Westgate to MGM Grand and then catch a cab.
