    How would you get there? From Google Maps, it seems like an 15 minute walk (don't worry, I will NOT do this). Would you do Uber or cab?

    Wax $2. My friend walked from Bellagio to McCarren once. People do walk it but apparently it's a little tricky around the airport as lots of fenced off areas.

    Edit: on Aug 25 that's what I'm doing. Wax that is, not walking.

    Uber myself. Others would do WAX.

    Uber or Lyft. Significantly faster than waiting for us or shuttle. Rise from the airport will be around $11

    Westcliff Airport Express. Its a bus route. A little longer if you have to wait for it but for one person its the cheapest.

    Not a bad idea. Need to look into this. I land around 12:00, would like to be in room ASAP (or at the very least, at the pool ASAP).

    If you want fast, WAX is not the way to go. For speed, go with a taxi, lyft, or uber. If you're willing to shell out the money, paying for one of the standby limos outside baggage claim is probably the fastest way to get to your hotel

    Uber. Once you get to the pick-up area you will have an affordable ride in minutes.

    Landing a 12, your problem will be to catch the next Wax (12:14 on weekdays and 12:20 on weekends). Otherwise its another hour. If you can catch that, it will be pretty much just as fast. Its the first stop. You can try that as plan Aand if you don't/can't make it go with rideshare. They are in the same general area of the airport.
