My wife and I are headed to Vegas sometime in July to September for our 5th anniversary. Dates are flexible for best deal. - We're driving, with short stops at the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. - Preliminary plans are showing 5 nights in Vegas, Sunday through Thursday nights. - Wife has never been to Vegas before. - We are in our low 30's, but we're not party animals. - We are minimal gamblers. - Most of our time will be walking and exploring the whole strip, so a central location is probably preferred, but not required. - We want a nice pool. I'm sure they're all considered nice, so calm and not as crowded is probably the better request. An older crowd, less kids & party animals. - Budget is kind of up in the air. I think our limit is going to be $200/night, including resort fees and parking. We're not regulars, so there are no comps. I am open to suggestions such as "stay two nights and get one free" at a cheaper hotel, then splurge a little on two nights at the Wynn or something that's closer to $250/night. We don't look at the hotel room as ONLY a place to sleep and shower, but we're close to that. We will hang out in the room to relax a little bit, as I'm sure we're going to be walking MILES the first couple of days and will need to rest some. I guess my biggest turmoil is, do we just get a cheap hotel to sleep and shower, such as the Excalibur for $29/night+fees or get a Terrace Studio at Cosmo for about $200/night+fees? Those are not specific places we want to stay at. Honestly, those two don't really appeal to me. I'm just asking you guys if you know a happy medium or good combination.
