    My Mom and I have planned to return to Vegas in May to celebrate my 50th birthday. Our trips have been too numerous to count but as she ages, I know that we need to enjoy every minute of all trips. My Mom managed to fall dancing on NYE and break her hip. She is coming along but I know that a walk in shower will be a must. Our Total Rewards offers at the moment are average at best. Harrah's probably the best at the moment. I know GO Rooms have walk in showers but I would love any other information anyone may have. Flamingo cost is high for us right now. I have spent more time at MLife properties lately and coupled with My Vegas could probably get NYNY or Monte Carlo almost comped. I was just in Vegas last week with my husband but only for a couple nights on our way to golf in CA. Think it may have been a good idea to think of this at the time......but of course I didn't. We do not require a full handicap room just a guaranteed walk in shower.
    Thanks in advance for any help and keep your fingers crossed that her recovery will be enough to allow her to travel to our favourite place!!

    If you are ok with lower quality, Excalibur has walk in showers.

    Excalibur, Luxor (only showers), Paris, PH, Venetian/Palazzo, Trump, Vdara, Mandalay Bay, THEhotel, Flamingo.. all have both a separate tub and a walk in shower.

    Almost all of the hotels (4 star and up) have separate tub/showers. Some of the crappier places have only a shower. The only place I can think of that has a tub/shower combo is MGM Grand.

    I'd just pick where you want, and then check the website, or youtube a video of the room.

    Of the lower end at CET, all I can think of is Bally's Jubilee Tower and Paris. However, it may be worth checking into some of the other options that fit your budget and seeing what their accessible room layout are. They may have what you need just in the accessible rooms.

    South Point has walk-in showers in their handicapped rooms. They are great for hip replacement customers. Commodes are also higher which is a requirement for many hip protocols.

    Harrah's offers a walk in shower, but you have to ask for a handicap assailable room. We had it for my mom. Good luck call the hotel of your choice and asked if they offer and Handicap room.

    Planet Hollywood has only tubs in their handicapped rooms, so you'd need to make it clear what you want there.

    Normal Hollywood Hip rooms have a walk-in shower (with a small lip at the door) and a deep tub.

    I had friends that stayed at the Excalibur and in chat mentioned that they only had a walk in shower. If you are looking for economy, the Motel 6 Tropicana has walk in showers. I stayed there a couple of times severa years ago. I don't know if all the rooms do but the rooms were clean, decent and handy to the bus and my trade show at the MGM. They also have a little convenience store there..

    Just to be clear, many of the places have walk-in showers available but also have tub type showers. The Flamingo and Excalibur for instance still have tub showers in many of their rooms.

    Make sure to keep that in mind.

    Relax! :) You are over thinking this - you just need to ask for a room with a roll-in shower. A person in a wheelchair may need to use a shower like this, and any hotel that wants to be ADA compliant has them. Roll in is the same as walk in. It will be accessible with lots of grab bars, usually with a fold down shower seat and a shower head that can be moved. She will do just fine in LV if you ask for room like this. They are limited in supply so call right away to have this note added to your reservation, and check the day before you arrive that this is noted again. We have been burned when not double checking before arrival. Have a great time!

    Please note that walk-in and roll-in showers are two different entities! My husband is confined to a wheelchair, and ANY shower with a small step will not work for him. The roll-ins are also longer to accommodate a wheelchair, whereas the walk-ins might not be as big.

    Also, the rooms with the roll-in showers are fewer and further between, and are USUALLY rooms with little or no view. If you are concerned about view and other niceties, consider upgrading to a suite....a few suites have roll-ins, but, again, are VERY limited in number.

    Hope this helps to clarify.

    Thanks again for the advice. I was concerned that the accessible rooms may not offer the best views and amenities. I will have to ask when I finally pull the trigger and book. A small step up will be fine, just can't be a tub that has to be climbed over......
