Hello, So after many months of planning (and many years of wanting to go!) I’m finally all booked for my first ever Vegas trip in early January! I have four comp nights booked at the Luxor in a Pyramid Suite Monday 1/3 through Thursday 1/6 (thanks to my play at Borgata in AC), but we’re actually flying in on Sunday 1/2. Originally my plan was to stay at Caesar’s Palace on the Sunday and I booked a room, but some of the stories I’m reading about all their ongoing construction has scared me off a little bit. So now I want to book someplace different, and I figured downtown would be fun. However, just from doing preliminary research there’s a LOT of different places to choose from downtown all around the same under $100 price range. So I figured I would post here to see if anyone has any recommendations (or places to totally avoid too!), since you guys seem to know everything, and I definitely mean that as a compliment. I’m not worried about going fancy since it’s only one night, would just like to pick a place that has a cool vibe and/or is clean and safe. I was looking at both the El Cortez and Downtown Grand mostly because they’re close to each other and both are still supposed to have low limit table games- I primarily play tables with a little bit of VP, and I really like bar VP. So if there’s a better place to stay, and if someone had a great recommendation for downtown VP bars that make one of the value casinos worth staying at, I’d love to hear it. Thanks for all of your help!
