    If you could build the perfect hotel/casino, which properties would you pull from?

    To keep this simple, I will split this in 5 categories:

    1) Energy/general fun in the casino
    2) Pool
    3) Restaurants/Shopping
    4) Gaming
    5) Rooms/Staff Service

    Only rule, it has to be a properties on the LV strip. From the Stratosphere to Mandalay Bay.

    For me:

    1) Planet Hollywood
    2) Flamingo
    3) Caesars
    4) Stratosphere
    5) Mirage

    My list is very diverse...as I like to gamble in a different atmosphere than I like to stay.

    1. Casino Royale...I love the low limit, lively atmosphere at the $5 craps table.
    2. Mirage...I love Vegas Vacation, so staying at the Mirage and lounging at the pool makes me feel like I'm in the movie.
    3. Cosmo..great mix of fun/quick food and good buffet
    4. Casino Royale.. or wherever I'm winning!...I always end up here for some reason
    5. Cosmo all the way! To me there is nothing like sitting on the balcony overlooking the Bellagio fountains, awesome tub/shower, great rooms...my favorite place to stay.

    1) Energy/general fun in the casino - Mandalay Bay
    2) Pool - Mandalay Bay
    3) Restaurants/Shopping - Tough, but I think Planet Hollywood
    4) Gaming - Mandalay Bay
    5) Rooms/Staff Service - Vdara

    Ultimately, I like Mandalay Bay that's my idea of the perfect Vegas hotel, I always want to be there.. but I wish it had better shopping, like Planet Hollywood has, and I wish they would do a sleek renovation on the rooms, I like the size and styling of Vdara. I would just want to move the location to center strip, and kill half their convention business, it's annoying haha.

    If it's a fantasy I'm not getting the location limitations?

    Before Rampart Casino was smoked/dumbed down, back when that resort first opened, I thought it tagged all the bases perfectly: Awesome hotel nicely removed from the casino, loved the west Summerlin location with all the golf, great food and that spa, grounds and pool, outward views, and a compact yet open casino that for a spell tried to do gambling the old school way. Sigh.

    If trapped on the Strip, I'd have some kinda bastard-son combo like the rooms and service of Four Seasons, Mandalay's array of eats when first conceived and a casino like Treasure Island c. late '90s or Aladdin (second iteration) as when it opened. Then again, I also could just say as I have often ... flush Wynn and Encore, bring back DI. I go with that one.

    1) Planet Hollywood
    2) Aria closely followed by Bellagio
    3) Cosmo
    4) Bally's ($10 3:2 blackjack, acceptable 98% quarter VP--if there's much better on the strip at those levels, please let me know!)
    5) Aria
