We have made the decision to stay downtown for our trip, April 7th - April 12th. The Strip doesn't offer good value that week because of the broadcasters convention. I've been reading reviews and checking out room prices. I'm overwhelmed. The only hotel I've stayed in downtown is the Fremont, so that's the only one I can compare anything to. The room was fine, if not pretty small. Bathroom is teeny tiny, but worked. I liked that the rooms appeared to be modern and updated. I'm not a Diva, so I just want a clean comfortable place to lay my head at night. No frills is ok. We don't spend a ton of time there anyway. We do need two beds. We love to gamble, mostly table games, and I do enjoy a little video poker from time to time. We focus most on Craps, enjoy some Pai Gow and other various games, very rarely play Black Jack. We also love NLHE poker, both cash games and tournaments. We hope to play some cash and several tournaments during our stay. We don't need to stay where we play downtown, with everything being so close. We also may hit the strip for a day. I would classify both of us as low rollers with a total gambling budget of $1000 or less each for the week. Price doesn't really matter. Everything downtown is inexpensive and within our range. I like varied food choices, but frankly downtown, I think you can jump from hotel to hotel so easy, that it doesn't matter what your hotel offers. If you don't like it, walk across the street. Keeping all this in mind, let's hear some ideas! I want to get something refundable booked and then may change later if a better price or options comes up. But I want to get something set in stone now. Thanks in advance for your help!
