    Hey guys! So, I'm officially older than I've been in my entire life. So much so, that we've decided on Vegas for our upcoming 25th anniversary, and are looking for a hotel that doesn't cater to the spring break crowd. Hey, no offense, I used to be one of you! But we're looking for a quieter experience this time. We loved Rio last time in Vegas, but it was just too LOUD. Although the seafood buffet is always a favorite.

    Any opinions about The Palms? Is this what we near-geezers are looking for??

    Thanks!! .......Doug

    If you didn't care for The Rio, I can't for the life of me think The Palms would be an enjoyable experience for you. Sounds like it may be time to consider downtown... Not the D or Golden Gate though.

    Wynn, Aria, Vdara. Bellagio is a maybe, saw lots of kids around there last time (everywhere but the casino. And I mean everywhere).

    Do you mean the drink until I puke spring breakers or the push me in my stroller spring breaker? If you mean the latter you'll have a hard time as they are everywhere. If you mean college age kids, then the upper tier properties that have been suggested although I would add Four Seasons and Manderin Orential. For more budget friendly maybe Tropicana. Off-strip, maybe the Orleans or Gold-Coast, or Southpoint.

    Would you consider something WAY off strip? I've got this idea that some trip, I'm going to spend my last couple of nights at Red Rock, relaxing and partaking in the spa there.

    What can you do without? When you factor in the special occasion, I would be inclined to not suggest places I like including Orleans, Gold Coast or Silverton in favor of a non casino hotel like the Trump. But you would end up with no casino and one restaurant. If you are more willing to be far from the strip, Red Rock or M Resort come to mind. But if you want something college aged kids have no use for, Orleans would work. The pool does draw younger kids but it's not like every school system in the country spring breaks at once so it's not like there is a time the town in overrun with grade schoolers.

    Four Seasons. The Four Seasons has a tranquil, private pool. Spring Break party-people choose the significantly less expensive Mandalay Bay rooms, so they go to the larger, party and kid-oriented MB pool complex. We've stayed at Four Seasons at least once/year (many of those visits were in March for the opening week of the men's NCAA Basketball Tournament) for the past 10+ years and never have had any problems with noisy partiers either in the hotel or at the FS pool.

    Happy 25th Anniversary! We are celebrating our 30th in May.

    Every time we're at the Orleans in March, kids are EVERYWHERE. It always amazes me how many kids are walking through the casino. It is a great place to stay with kids because of the bowling alley, movie theaters, kids play zone and some cheap eats. In the past, people have recommended Bally's because there seems to be an older crowd. I'm anxious to try it out this March.

    I take it the OP is referring to the college type spring breakers, not the circus-circus type spring breakers, or am I wrong?

    Check out Sunset Station, Red Rock, The M, Silverton, Rampart, Southpoint and Green Valley Ranch. Best to rent a car for any of these.

    Not Gold Coast lots of young talent there on a budget.

    Golden Nugget downtown would be my vote. Very plush rooms and a really super cool adult pool area.

    Hope this helps. :).
