    This has kind of being an interesting question to wonder, but how many resorts/casinos/hotels have you stayed in your history of visiting Vegas? I know it sounds kind of silly, but I've had this weird little idea of trying to stay somewhere different every time I go from now on. For now, I've only had three on my list, and all CET properties.

    Caesars (2003... yes I was of a non-gambling age)
    Planet Hollywood (2013)
    Flamingo (Upcoming in 2017).

    Just interested in hearing your stories, and what's been the best in your opinion!

    I'd have to tally. 30?

    On some levels, the best was DI, but we only experienced that toward the end of its life, so can't imagine what the heyday was like. The deceased Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas was stellar. Wynn, Bellagio, JW Marriott, M, Red Rock all cluster up top for us. Lotsa of good things to say about lotsa different properties, however. Best is so damn subjective. If I was a whale and my experience set was the Mansion, I'd certainly be jaded. I guess that's the best part about us being casino free agents for the most part over the years.

    If you pay a resort fee is it a resort? If the fee was waived is it still a resort and counts? If so then 2. If not then no.

    Well I mean, even if it's a downtown casino/hotel, that still counts in my book!

    This made me really have to think.
    I've stayed at
    :
    Stratosphere
    Aladdin
    Treasure Island (about 4 times)
    Mirage (about 4 times)
    Excalibur (Once and never again!)
    Palms in the real world suite (only one night but it was awesome!)
    Rio (twice)
    4 Queens
    Tropicana
    Planet Hollywood
    Aria
    Cosmo (my favorite and the only place I really stay anymore)

    I feel like I am forgetting one.

    I also like trying new places. Depending on the trip we often break up the stay between two resorts. Hopefully on my next trip I'll spend a couple nights downtown for the first time.

    Flamingo
    Stratosphere
    Monte Carlo
    Encore
    Wynn
    Cosmo (only place I've stayed at multiple times, and still my favorite)
    Vdara
    Aria

    I'm good wherever we can get comped or a good deal on the Strip. Have stayed at Flamingo the past few trips as our group enjoys spending a lot of time in the Margaritaville Casino and playing craps out by the pool in the summer.
