    You need lots of carrying capacity. ;)

    Pretty cool thing, Google, eh?

    I actually almost always travel on just a carry-on. In fact, when I was 21 I moved to England with nothing but carry-on luggage (the rolling suitcase I still use as a carry-on today).

    I feel like there's a possible deeper or more subtle meaning to the ships reference that I'm just not getting :)

    Nothing deeper. You just seem to be the consummate packer.

    P.S. A better analogy probably is Ike and Co. planning for D-Day.

    As far as standard rooms on the strip I would love to see no more f***ing shower curtains. I realize that walk in showers aren’t feasible in a lot of bathrooms that are smaller in size but at the minimum they could do something like this that the Rush Tower rooms at the GN have done.

    I get that it’s a money thing but at some point it also has to be, at a bare minimum, more than a little bit of a health issue. I’ve felt this way for years and won’t even consider a room that has a shower curtain.

    :peace: :beer:

    Related question to this suggestion... anyone know what hotel rooms in Vegas DO have a steam shower? I know the Cypress Suite at Bellagio does, but I haven't been able to find any other accommodations that have this.

    Yes cypress suite and I believe bellagio suite has it too I recall using it.

    Also, at MB the Horzion suite they also have steamed shower (I’m 99% sorry just getting too old lol) anyhow it’s just plain awesome I don’t use it all the time but it’s nice to have.

    Good bathroom. Walk-in shower, two sinks and lots of surface area. WC.

    Yeah, +1 on the water closet. Not an absolute must for me but it definitely fits into the equation.

    I agree with you here. I hate walking into a decent-sized hotel room and the bathroom is the size of my closet.

    Haha, oh shit. You're right. I didn't think about that happening. I'll have to tuck it away so they don't see it.

    Finding it hard no one has asked for hookers and blow... That would have me back everytime…. Tongue in cheek of course.

    Having spent about 4 months at least in hotel rooms for every year in the past 10 for me I first want a GOOD set of blackout curtains. Critical for me. I keep strange hours working and often need to rest during the day. Secondly a working sink drain plug! So annoys the hell out of me not to be able to fill up the sink with water to have a nice shave. HOT water also, none of this luke warm crap.

    Not really a Vegas issue, but a bouncer to keep out the people that think it is ok to eat breakfast in public, in their pajamas. Hey Jethro, you're not at home!
    An in room microwave is always appreciated.
