    Depends on from where. If it's from the airport, it's about $25-$30.
    I'd also look into taking the WAX from the airport. Drops you off at the Walgreens at Freemont, and it's just about a 5min walk from there. And, it's only $2.

    If the cab takes the freeway, expect a meter of about $35...if he tunnels you, you're looking at $40+... if you tell him to take Swenson/Paradise, avoid the strip and the freeway, you're looking at about $27...all before tip (although you should never tip a driver who tunnels you).

    Take the WAX - for $2, you're at 4th & Carson...the walk to the El Co from there is shorter than the walk from your gate to baggage claim.

    But if the bus is out, then as soon as you get into the cab, tell the driver you're going downtown, to the El Cortez, and you don't want the tunnel, the freeway or a tour of the strip. If he gets you there for under $30 (and he should), then tip him $5.
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Even better just tell him to take paradise... He will grumble... but he has to to it. If he does not, report him.
