    I've stayed at the Stardust many times and the Riviera a few. I've had so many trips that most of them are just one big blur. I often times think in terms of where I have not stayed yet.

    As an adult I have yet to stay at the same place twice:
    NYNY
    EXCAL
    Golden Nugget
    Flamingo
    Downtown Grand
    Planet Hollywood
    Mandalay Bay

    prior to being an adult what I remember:
    Some NoTel Motel that use to be across from NYNY that is not longer there
    Circus Circus, which ended up being in the Manor Rooms
    Stardust multiple times.

    Don't think I am missing any, but ya never know, its been a blur.

    My progression for 'home' hotels for personal travel over the years since 1969 has generally been:

    Caesars
    Desert Inn
    Golden Nugget
    Mirage
    Bellagio
    Wynn

    Each of the above were at or near the best at what they did during the times I stayed there-loved them all (I did have one great falling out with Caesars during the disastrous brief period that Sheraton managed the hotel operations). As you can see, I've followed Mr. Wynn since the Nugget. Now I am emphatically not a fan of downtown. I always used to make an excursion every trip to play at the Nugget and Four Queens, but since the canopy and Fremont Experience I just don't go there at all. As always, opinions on Vegas differ wildly.

    On business trips I've also stayed at the MGM, Four Seasons, Palace Station, TI, Venetian, Alexis Park, Rio, Palms and a few other one offs, including the original Aladdin (always won there!) . I don't really have a great affection for any of those except TI, although all definitely took pretty good care of me (except for my one disaster at Caesars-left in a huff for the Desert Inn and never went back).

    Las Vegas has changed a lot over the years, but I've always loved it. Like most old people I prefer the 'old' Vegas when personal relationships were literally everything (still possible, but very corporate now). I will say that my first two visits to Bellagio at opening and in January 1999 are still my most remembered-I thought the new Bellagio was the most fantastical and coolest place I'd ever been (not the same now under MGM). In general for the city, the food, shopping and paper machine tickets are all better now-those are the best Vegas modern improvements.

    A day in Las Vegas is better than a day at home. Counting down, counting down.......

    I see a general theme above of people liking to try different places, variety and shopping around. We're the boring people who stick to the same place over and over until something much better comes along or we're driven off. We stayed in the exact same suite at Bellagio so often over the years that we knew the names of our housekeeper's dogs. I like knowing who is taking care of us. I'll observe that the benefits of being a returning guest at Wynn are substantial-most everyone remembers us wherever we are in the hotel, they remember our preferences and they go above and beyond with personalized service.

    So I'm also interested in why you may prefer variety or loyalty/repeat visits while enjoying your Vegas experience. No hijack, just a little add to your lists. All very interesting here.

    Bally's X2 (For some reason, my favorite)
    Palazzo
    Aladdin (before it became PH)
    Plaza (one night because staying downtown was on my bucket list and the strip rates were too high for a Wednesday night. Never again)

    There may be more trips to the Flamingo and Harrah's because I've been to Las Vegas at least 23 times. Or maybe I'm also forgetting a hotel/casino.
    And this year, I'm starting 2 trips per year.

    Upcoming Trip: The Linq
