Hi everyone, Well we or should I say "I" (snort) decided that we would stay at the Bellagio. Beautiful, beautiful hotel I ended up booking a room with a fountain view. With all the promo codes out there we paid a pretty good rate. The room was worth every penny as the fountain show was amazing during the day and evening, and the view of the strip was really nice too. The TV in our room played music that was synchronized with the fountain show. On a side note when we checked in that Saturday the hotel was sold out for the weekend so if you want a lake front view I personally think it's worth paying the extra. Also, if you can try not to check in/out between 12:00 - 2:00. Holy crap the line ups to check in/out are "really, really" long. The hotel room was really nice, bathroom was really big. Everything you've read about their beds is true. The bed was the most comfy bed I have ever slept on, and the pillows were amazing. The best part of the room is that we didn't have to get out of bed to open and close the shears and drapes it was all done by remote that was next to the bed. I sure want to get that at home. It was hot, hot, hot when we were there last week (110 plus during the day) Toured most of the hotels on the strip. The nicest was the Wynn (got 2 free buffets) and the most disgusting and dirtiest was Hooters. The Palazzo/Venetian had a horrible smell being pumped into the casino. What the heck is up with this? We also found the Flamingo stunk like coconuts. We went to see Elton John's Red Piano show at the Colosseum, Caesars Palace - excellent concert. I didn't realize that he was so short and fat - LOL. The only thing that ticked us off was a bottled water and a drink cost us 20.00 - nuts They were also charging 7.50 for a super small box of popcorn. We also went to see Jersey Boys at the Palazzo (300.00 for two tickets). It's the life story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. This is a must see the show was amazing, and it was worth every penny. The lead in the show sang exactly like Franki Valli... Sherry --- Sherry baby sherry ---- sherry baby sherry --- baby ---- sherry can you come out tonight come come, come out tonight, come, come, come out tonight All in all Vegas was pretty good. We're still tired from all the walking. Couple of things.... Two coffee's and a muffin at our hotel cost us 18.00 -worst coffee in the world next to Starbucks. We could not find a decent cup of coffee in Vegas. I guess we're spoiled here in Canada as Tim Hortons coffee rocks. The dinner buffet at the Bellagio for two was 60.00, and breakfast was 40ish (best buffet for breakfast/dinner). We got 4 days worth of line passes for signing up for a players card at the Bellagio. It also helped that we were hotel guests at the Bellagio. So glad we got this as the dinner line up was crazy - we sure got a lot of dirty looks going thru the line pass line - LOL Bottled water was 6.00 - go to the ABC store it's .99 Mini Bar at the Bellagio is really expensive - go to the ABC store it's cheaper. The Wynn buffet is not bad. We found lunch and dinner was the same. I personally thought the Bellagio was 100 times better. The food at Planet Hollywood (Planet Dailies)was pretty good. They make the best strawberry mojito's. The Fashion Outlet mall rocks. Miracle mile is just ok. We found the best place for slots was at Planet Hollywood. Played there most days until three in the morning. I was having a blast playing HooDoo the cat slot machine. Pay outs are a heck of lot higher at Planet Hollywood than at the Bellagio or Caesars. Does anyone ever win at these two casinos? This is a personal thing.... At 2 in the morning there were people pushing around strollers these poor kids were crying - what the heck is wrong with these parents. Also, during the day they were crying because it was so hot. Sorry but I don't think Vegas is for kids. This is why there's Disney World for them. Thanks to everyone who took time out of their day to answer my questions, and thanks for posting the promo codes. The codes saved us a lot of money. Thanks again it was greatly appreciated. I just booked our next vacation. We're heading off to Punta Cana for two weeks in Jan/09. Vegas will be on the list again for next year.
