    Curious what everyone's "home" casino is, if you have one. In Vegas, it would probably be the Orleans, though I am starting to feel like I may be evicted soon and am checking out some new places. Locally, my "home" is Harrahs in North KC.

    California for past few years but lately I've been yearning for the strip and have stayed a night or two "away from home". I don't see this trend ending and probably will wind up back on the strip unless they get crazy again with weekday pricing....

    I'm long time married to The Mirage, my home away from home. Being a slot slug, either before or after my Mirage stay, I rendezvous a few nights at Cosmo, Wynn, Or V/P. Occasionally, I take a vacation from Mirage and have a fling at Bellagio or Aria. :D

    My nearest local is a 4 1/2 hour drive away and in another state. :cry:

    Cosmo all the way, but will drift with the wind if the offers are right for a new place to live. With my play being concentrated at Cosmo, not likely I will be going anywhere soon!

    Palazzo

    It just feels right. From the rooms to the casino and the staff.

    I do stay other places but more often than not you'll find me at Palazzo.

    Cosmo. I love it there! I've been getting offers from Aria so I may stay there a night my next trip just for something different. But the rooms at Cosmo are so great, probably not.

    I'm a poly-GAME-ist...two home bases, Cosmo and Aria.

    Sorry, couldn't resist the play on words with "polygamist"...only have eyes for one person mate-wise...but I DO have two beloved homebases hotel-wise, as long as they'll have me! Ergo, a poly-GAME-ist...

    Yes, you can throw peanuts at me now for my bad pun!

    No surprise on this one for me... The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has been my "go-to" spot in Las Vegas for better than 8 years now. To borrow Rocky's phrase above, "It just feels right." I'm not a huge gamer, so concentrating my play is important. So is customer-service treatment from the staff and the folks at HRH always treat me wonderfully!

    I've been at the Bellagio for a few years. I was a prior resident at Mirage. When I was younger I used to stay at IP and Tropicana. After this trip I think I may expand my horizons. My current offers included one at Delano. I've never stayed near at that end and might use it as a change of scene.

    I almost changed up this trip but I'm so comfortable at Bellagio I'm afraid of being disappointed in the room, view or food. Being this trip is to commemorate my 60th birthday (not necessarily celebrate) I didn't want to risk wishing I'd stayed somewhere else. I don't mind gambling somewhere else, but home base is not as easy to change for me.

    I have stayed at most Strip hotels since 1977. However, my home base, meaning the Hotels i have stayed at the most times from the late 70's to late 80's is Dunes and Stardust.
    In the 90's i was with MGM with most stays at Monte Carlo.
    In the 2000's, i switched over to CET in which most stays were at Bally's
    But in the last few years, even though i'm still with Caesars, my Hotel stays vary depending on comps.
    So this summer i'm staying at LinQ.
    But Vegas is really my Home Base.

    Caesar's in Vegas. We are slot players and get good offers - 5 Nights comped at Caesar's every time. Home base is Caesar's Windsor - only 30 minutes from door to door for us. Great weekend getaway, good shows (comped) and our TR points work at all CET properties.

    Mandalay Bay! We don't mind walking / driving / tram to mid strip. We'll see if this stay at Vdara changes that but as non-gamblers a great pool is important and it's hard to beat MB.
