First let me start by introducing myself! I am from Saskatchewan, Canada and I have been on here lurking around for three or four months. I started shortly before we went to Vegas in April and recieved alot of advice and info from here for that trip and for the one we took last week. Presidential Limo Thank you for all the recommendations to Presidential. We booked the Airport/return service. I tried to book the web special the night before we went, but it said if it you will be there within 72 hours you have to phone. So I phoned and the guy gave me the web special over the phone. Someone was waiting at the baggage area with a sign, helped get our bags and had the champagne chillin. He took us for a drive around the strip and for a quick stop at a liquor store. Very friendly and helpful. But I am kicking myself cause I forgot about the picture at the Vegas sign. Oh well, guess we need to go to Vegas again sometime The Hotel - New York New York We had a good deal on NYNY - just under $1300 ($650ish each) for an airflight/4 night package so we went with it. The hotel was clean and fun but we both agreed we liked MGM better (stayed there in April). MGM has a classier feeling to it. We had the basic Skyline room and requested a King bed when we booked, but when we checked in (9:00 p.m.) they didn't have one. Tried the $20 trick but nothing was offered, he just told us to call down the next morning to ask if they had any king beds available. So next morning, new person, new $20 trick and nothing - but we did finally have a king. HOWEVER, when we go up to the room it has obviously been smoked in ALOT (we asked for non-smoking) and the big kicker, someone's dirty under garments laying on the floor. Yech! At first it was the smoky room that bothered us the most but then the panties on the floor got us wondering how thorough a job the maid really did cause they were the first thing you say when you walked in. So a call to the front desk manager to explain and presto we are in a Spa Suite. We thanked ($) him. Having the jacuzzi tub was a nice touch but we only used it once. Who has time?! The best part of the room was having so much space! Shower big enough for two and the sink/mirror /counter (i.e. somewhere to spread out all my make-up, hair supplies) was big and separated from the shower/toilet by a door. And darnit - I just remembered I forgot to call somebody from the bathroom phone. LOL. Never had one of those before, and still not sure why you would want one? We thought the hotel was very clean. No ladies of the evening around the elevators like there seemed to be at the MGM. Elevators were fast, never a wait except for Saturday morning. It was definitely a younger crowd.It didn't seem as smoky as MGM, MGM was bad for that. And I gotta say, coming from Canada, I find it weird to see people smoking inside cause you can't smoke inside barely anywhere here. Most of our out-door lounge/patios are non-smoking these days. Even our night clubs are non-smoking. Anyway, it was a young crowd, but no little kids. Don't get me wrong, love kids, have two of my own . . . but don't like other people's kids when I am on holidays. I'll post this for now, but I need to get back to reality for a moment and do some laundry . . . .I hate that part of the holiday!
