    Just want to thank all that post here. I've been a lurker for several weeks and thought it was time to sign up just to thank posters for all the great info.

    As for me, in 2001-2002 I worked and lived in downtown Las Vegas at Anne Meyers' Nevada Hotel & Casino, and, Ann Meyers' Queen of Hearts Casino and Hotel. Both are now closed and Q of H's was bulldozed a couple years ago. The old Nevada Hotel & Casino building (shuttered and condemned) is immediately west of The Golden Nugget parking garage.

    I'll be heading out to Vegas/Laughlin for a week later this month. Again, thanks for all the helpfull reviews and posts--especially the ACG Coupon Map. :peace:

    Welcome! I live southwest of Omaha and play at the Iowa casinos frequently.

    We stayed at the Nevada Hotel in the late 1970s, actually the only NYE I've ever spent in LV. Back then it was kind of an overflow place for the El Cortez. Our extended family had reservations at the ElCo but they could not give us the weird combination of rooms we wanted so they transferred us to the Nevada, which was actually quite decent back then. Just across the street from the Plaza, which was tres elegante at the time.

    It was kinda sad to see the old Hotel Nevada take the downward plunge. :(
