    I usually stay on the strip. I will have a rental car and thought maybe try something different. And stay off the strip. Since I have a car and want to see and go places outside of the strip.

    Which would be a good choice for 3-4 nights?

    Thanks

    I've never stayed at either one, but I've heard a lot of good words about Red Rock and Green Valley Ranch.

    Yeah I took a look at a few different places. I would say Red Rock looks pretty good. Did some tripadvisor research. Its pretty pricey at the moment for a Nov visit.

    I also found the Vdara , on the strip as well and someplace I have always wanted to stay. But has anyone used a site named otel.com?

    I love staying at M Resort. The rooms are a good size, very modern, and the decor is very earthy. It's a good 10 minutes from the strip and there's something very calming about the resort as a whole and, especially, the room itself.

    There's a great buffet, there's Hash House for late night eats, there's happy hour at Anthony's, a great pool, and a great sports book connected to a deli.

    They also give you a $5 resort credit for each night you opt out of housekeeping service. I use it for a couple breakfast pastries at Baby Cakes or save it for later in the day to get a gelato milkshake.

    Yah I have been for their buffet. It was quite nice and as you mention it was great to get off the strip :)

    Maybe I will have a look at that option. Thanks.

    Red Rocks is pretty isolated. The M is up the street from SouthPoint so you have another choice. My opinion is that it is more than 10mns from the strip to the M but, it's within 20 or so.

    You can take a shuttle to center strip from the M. We used to stay there all the time but, they tightened the machines, sports book lost their edge since Cantor took over and the buffet is no longer a gem.

    Still...the rooms are very nice and if you've never stayed...I think you would enjoy yourself. Personally I now prefer either Gold Coast, Palms or Southpoint.

    The M is pretty nice, and only about 10 miles from the south end of the strip.

    The M is indeed a very nice property, as is Red Rock and Green Valley. My joint, Hard Rock also impresses most people who check it out for the first time, especially the HRH All-Suite Tower and of course, their 5 acres of pools and grounds... but in November that won't be a big deal.

    To give you an idea on my tastes. i have stayed at the following, Palazzo, Aria, flamingo go room, PH ? And Imperial Palace :) the first time in Vegas many moons ago.

    Thus why im sort of looking off strip. And I will have a rental car.

    I stay in this room 40-50 nights a year:
    http://www.hardrockhotel.com/las-vegas-hotel/suite-tower/supreme-corner-king-suite#video

    I'll put it up against the rooms in the hotels you mentioned, with the exception of the Palazzo... that's a NICE place. Sorry, I've been in IP rooms, but never slept there.

    Again though, the M is a very well kept property and Green Valley and Red Rock are the Station Casino's flagship properties. Both are 4 star IMHO. I don't thing Gold Coast, Orlean's, Sam's Town or the like are what you're looking for... though they each have their following. The Palms is another you might consider, as they've just put a serious "chunk of change" back into the place! I'm gonna check it out later this month.

    Wow Palms looks like my style. And M looks like my style and Red Rock.

    How come Palms doesnt get great reviews like the others? Mmm i realize reviews are subjective but they do have some creedence.

    We really like the M Resort. You can get a 30% discount for being a California resident. The only catch is that you have to make your reservation by phone, not online. In my experience, that is a good thing because we have always been upgraded. Red Rock is nice too, but is quite a ways from the Strip if that is important. The M is our favorite off strip hotel/resort.

    Hmmm after my morning research I think it will be one of those 3. I just have to wait for the right deal now. The studio suite looks quite nice at the Palms.
    As for prices...I always thought hotels would be cheaper than shown today :(

    Is November a higher season=rate?

    I think it's because even though Palms is off the strip, it's close enough that it's pretty much considered on strip by a lot of people. Just depends how off strip you want to get. I stay at Rio once a year, and I consider it pretty much "on strip".

    By "Off Strip" would you consider downtown? The Golden Nugget Rush tower is nice enough to meet your expectations, and you get the advantage of being able to casino hop (even easier than on the strip). There are a lot of restaurants and bars and there's plenty of entertainment, all within walking distance.

    If downtown doesn't appeal, another very nice casino / hotel off strip that noone has mentioned is the Eastside Cannery. Modern retro 50's style in the casino, very good gaming and beautiful, spacios rooms nicely appointed.

    I recommend the M Resort. I do NOT recommend Green Valley Ranch - I posted something on here earlier this year - I barely give it 3 stars.

    I looked a few times at the green valley ranch and not convinced. The M looks very promising. Seems to get very good reviews on most sites. Rooms like very nice, service good. And quieter than the strip. I have yet to look at any DT hotel. Not too fond of the area. Unless things have changed from 3-5yrs ago?

    I will now look at The Golden Nugget/Eastside Cannery.

    Thanks everyone for their input.
