    You'll probably hear Presidential Limo a lot, but that's my choice.

    There should be a sticky for this question because it's asked so much. I agree, although there are others, Presidential is the one most recommend. I've used it 5 times. Great service.

    We used Bell-trans last trip and were very happy with it.

    Do not use the VIP airport transfer service from Bell Trans- I am sure they are just fine for their true Limo service. The VIP service is sort of a discount limo service, but you are not guaranteed a limo. Many times people do get a limo by themselves. We tried it once. We had to share a sedan with an elderly couple. I got stuck in the back seat. Someone was incontinent, and it wasn't me. They screwed up our pick up time from the hotel - they were a no show. I had to wait on the phone for over 30 minutes to talk to a real person. They dispatched a limo quick to correct their mistake. Reading other complaints about them - the no show or late pickup at the hotels happens frequently.

    I was plenty happy with Bell Trans for a limo. Driver was super nice and was perfectly willing to drive around for the hour if we wanted, but we just went straight to the Venetian (where I proceeded to lose... a lot... quickly; maybe a bad decision in hindsight.)

    I used Presidential when I went last. I'd use them again without thinking about it. The driver texted me updates on where he was at, and he was really friendly.

    Same here. I would suggest asking for Milt as a driver.

    I had a different experience. I did the Bell VIP shuttle service (as recommended by this board!), and it was great. For a total of $28 + two $5 tips, I got to ride to the Flamingo in a Limo (shared with two people dropped off at the Cosmo), and a nice SUV from the Flamingo to the airport. Same cost as a cab, but much more comfortable. I'm sorry you had a bad experience with a fellow passenger, but that's what makes that service cheaper than hiring the limo for yourself. They were also right on time picking me up; I got a text and call 15 minutes prior to them arriving at the hotel. I was out at the curb waiting when they showed up.

    Throwing another hat in the ring for Presidential. Used them about 4 times now, and planning on using them next week, and each time has been great. You get a car/limo to yourself and you don't have to worry about a thing. Last thing i want to do is share a car with some crazy person during my first 20 minutes in vegas...

    i have been promoting Presidential on here for over 10 years, i used to drive for them and still use them, for you guys to know they are sister company to Bell. There are several good limo companies and some you dont want to use, the biggest thing is price an customer service. AWG/Ambassador, executive and Presidential have the newer fleets in Vegas, and those are typically your more expensive companies. Most companies vary 5 or 10 dollars for an airport pickup the difference is the return. Some companies will label your ride as a transfer, which is not an hour, it is from point A to point B with no stops. I will also say, keep your drivers number, if you like the service book with them and they will usually take better care of you.
