    Have any of you guys had any good/bad experiences with any limo companies?

    Looking to rent a limo for a party of 4 just to go from airport to hotel.

    Any suggestions?

    Presidential seems to get mentioned a lot on this board. No personal experience.

    Yep. I've done them before as well. They're fine.

    If you don't care about a driver waiting for you with your name on a card in the baggage claim, just walk outside the door and pick up a limo on the curb.

    There are pros and cons to doing both. I prefer just walking outside and getting in one now.

    Presidential for sure. Have used them many times and always impeccable service. The ride used to come with a bottle of champagne, but they have done away with that in the last year. Still great service.

    They haven't done away with the champagne if you get one of the stretch limos. They stopped for a short period during prom season because of underage drinkers. From others' posts, they're back to providing the bubbly.

    Same experience for me. They are more than happy to take you by the liquor store on the way to your hotel too!

    OK. So yes, they are back with the bottle of champagne.It's not the best champagne, but what better way to start off a Vegas trip than with a Limo and a bottle of bubbly? :drunk:

    Have hotel send one, walk to curb, or call presidential. They all seem to be close in price, with presidential being at the top, but providing the most service/perks. The best deal I ever got was a driver whispering to me a baggage claim, $45 to Bally's on the day the strip was shut down due to the car crash death in front of Bally's.

    We just returned from Vegas on August 11th. Presidential Limousine was wonderful! We requested champagne and Cherry Coke for the kids which they had waiting for us on ice. Our flight was delayed (2.5h) yet our limo was waiting outside. We messed up by waiting at the limo while our driver was inside waiting at the Baggage Claim! Oops. On the trip back, we were surprised by an upgraded stretch Escalade and the girls were all given roses when we were dropped off at the airport. TripAdvisor reports that some folks had troubles with the A/C but both of our rides were cool and comfortable. The only gotcha I can think of is to specifically request champagne and other drinks for your return trip. Finally, you can use the iPhone app "Presidential iRide" to make adjustments to your reservation.

    We always go w/Presidential, too. As someone above said, what better way to start the trip than w/champagne. Of course drinking that in the short time to the hotel is responsible for a few times not quite remembering how the trip started, but...
