Hi guys me (Neil) and better half (Stella) are from Telford in Shropshire (half way up England and a bit to the left, just next to Wales) and are coming to Vegas for 10 days for the first time in October. We've visited the USA many times, but have only done Florida, as with kids it's the best place ever to give everyone something. Now we are (virtually) empty nesters we are going on more grown up trips. We were initially booked in to the Excalibur, but changed a couple of weeks ago to the Mardi Gras as we would like a bit more space and the ability to get up in the morning, make a cup of coffee and just pop outside for a smoke. The thought of getting fully up and traipsing down to Starbucks, first thing wasn't all that appealling. The added bonuses are $5 resort fees, free parking for the 5 days that we're hiring a car, free shuttles to and from the strip and airport and even a buffet breakfast included for no extra money. The savings on these things alone for 10 nights is upwards of $400 and as the £/$ rate is killing us at the moment due to Brexit, this is a lot of money to us. If anyone has any info or views on the Mardi Gras or it's buffet breakfast we would appreciate a heads up. While we are in Vegas we intend to visit Grand Canyon, Red Rock and the Valley of Fire, we are also hoping to get an early flight one day to SF, spend the day there and get the last flight back, any tips on how best to make this work would help too. Thanks in advance.
