    My Trip Report

    In Vegas we called the Delta chartered van company. They picked us up and delivered us to a site near the hotel. Then a smaller van took us to the Hotel. I read there was construction by the hotel and it was to be a mess but our experience was great as far as that problem.
    Checked in and upgraded with the $30 more a night. (our daughter needed a roll-away so the bigger room was needed) Room was okay. safe was locked and couldn't get it open (did call maintenance) and one of the dresser drawers kept opening on its own. the bathroom did have a tv screen in the mirror. It sorta creeped me out,like someone was looking at you LOL. Hubby did like it when on the throne LOL. We are seasoned travelers and these will remain in our memories. No need to get obset

    There is also Margaritaville and Carlos and Charlies connected to this hotel

    just a few more tips:

    learn to use the bus and get a pass
    take a few extra pair of shoes, to prevent blisters (worked)
    Go to Caesars for their buffet. $45.00 but was well worth it.
    Tried the Frozen hot Chocolate at Serendipity (go around the back there is a nice sitting area and no lines) while there also check out the Mango daiquiris at the small bar to the right.
    Saw both the Bodies and Titanic exhibits at the Luxor. Ate at small restaurant between them.
    Take a few hours to soak in the pool and relax.
    We gambled a little. Hubby was ahead, daughter came out even. I just did a $5.00 in a machine and lost.
    Will we go to Vegas again? been 3 times now. So many other places to explore. :peace:
