I am a long time vegas visitor but usually stay downtown. Heading to Vegas with my daughter end of July. She is in a body building competition at University of Las Vegas which is by Hard Rock. Would like to stay on strip for her first visit to Vegas. Need a decent size and nice room because she will spend a lot of time in room preparing for show. She also needs a good fitness room to do her workouts. Was thinking about Ballys but saw bad reviews on rooms. Seen reviews about rooms smelling like smoke even in non-smoking rooms. Was also thinking about Linq. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Want to make good choice for her first visit to Vegas.
