    Looking at what the best cab route would be to get there. Coming in ~7:30 Friday night. Is this an instance where getting tunneled may be my best option given that I'm going on the north end of the strip? :nworthy:

    Seems like that may take awhile to get to the hotel, we're going to be ready to get there and get going.

    Tunnel is faster but more expensive. Least expensive is surface streets.

    While it is not the fastest, I would suggest Tropicana to I15 to whatever exit TI is on. I would try and avoid the tunnel, but I would still take the freeway over surface streets. You still have a chance of waiting a long time on Tropicana. Taking Tropicana vs the tunnel will save you about $6-7.

    Wow, I have to agree that this may be a case where the tunnel will be better. The Strip will be MOBBED that time on Friday. Tropicana and Flamingo will be backed up at least one light cycle going westbound, Ditto with Sands/Twain.

    "TI, take the Tunnel to Spring Mountain" is probably the fastest and most hassle-free for that particular time.
