Vegas Uncovered a guide to the Las Vegas Strip

2 Free Las Vegas Buffets per day MGM, Mirage, Mandalay Bay, Aria etc

The MGM Mirage Group yesterday, issued a host of complementary buffet deals, if you book two nights under this offer you receive 2 complimentary buffets per booking per day. You do not have to use these in the buffet of the hotel that you are staying at  you can in fact use it at any of Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Excalibur, MGM Grand, Aria, Vdara, Monte Carlo, Mirage and Circus Circus. Mirage and Mandalay Bay are my two favourite buffets on the Strip it is great that if you stay at a cheaper hotel you can still eat for free in a far more expensive hotel. These deals are available on most dates until Spetember 8th but must be booked before June 27th

All of these deals are booked directly with the hotel on the links below.  All of these offers are fully refundable up to48 hours before check in, if the rate drops after you book contact the hotel and they will adjust your rate, these deals are available for everyone over 21 and
not just selected players. It is a very good deal.

I have just noticed that this page is suddenly after a few years getting a few hits again sadly these deals are all over there are still good deals to be had the best place to find them is to go directly to the hotels themselves this gives you greater flexability and also more chance of obtaining an upgrade when you check in and if you dont book direct with the hotel it is more difficult to get comps applied against your room rates. The links below will take you directly to the hotels have a great trip.

How much money do you need to take to Las Vegas ?

After being asked about how to get a free upgrade the question that I am asked the most is “How much money do I need to take to Las Vegas ?” This is a very difficult to answer as it is the same as someone saying “How much do I need to spend on grocery’s each week ?”

So I will do the best I can to try and show some examples of spends and costs and what I would spend. I am going to assume that your hotel (including resort fees) and flights are paid and that you do not have a rental car and that you will not be doing any shopping. Please bare in mind that I have have great trips in Vegas on $25 per day when I have been hard up and great trips when my budegt has been $1k per day its not the money that makes it better or worse.

The first expense that you will have is getting to your hotel from McCarran you have four options cab $15 – $30(depending on hotel and time of day), shuttle bus $12-$15 (return), public bus $2.50 or Limo approx $60. How to get from the airport to the Strip

When you get to the hotel if you have bags that you will check you should allow $5 per bag for a tip for the bellboy, at the same time it is worth putting a few dollars away for the maid they do a good job and often get forgotten we generally tip the maid $3 per day or $5 if we want extra shampoos etc to take home for Christmas presents 🙂 How much to Tip in Las Vegas

We generally take in a show every two or three nights when we are in Las Vegas we book one absolute cannot miss show before we leave home so this would not come out of our budget all the others we buy from the half price booths and we have paid as little as $15 for a magic show and about $125 for a Cirque show. I think that if you budget $75 for a show that as long as you are prepared to be flexible you should be able to find something that you like. If you want to book direct with the hotel when you are out there shows vary in price depending on show and seats and day of the week etc from about $40 to several hundred dollars.

Dining in Las Vegas is something where you can get buy on say $15 a day but you can also pay $10 for a coffee so what you spend is really up to you. We tend to either have a very small breakfast just coffee and a danish then coffee shop or deli lunch and proper meal in the evening or large or buffet breakfast a snack at lunchtime and then decent dinner. Excalibur and Luxor have 24 hour buffet deals for $24.99 and then $29.99 respectively and this is probably the cheapest way to stay full in Las Vegas though not the best. We generally allow $10 for coffee and danish, $15 for deli or coffee shop lunch and then the evening can be anything from a $20 buffet to a $200 fine dining meal at Eiffel. Food prices change between hotels we were surprised to find that staying at Wynn we spent a lot more money than say at MGM Grand as everything costs more.

Drinks are free when you are gambling (subject to tipping) but if not the prices vary greatly from one casino to another and how you get them ! Casino Royale has the cheapest beer with Michelob $1 all day every day at their bars generally though expect to pay $8 for a beer and $12 for a shot and mixer in a casino bar. Following the rules in the link below will ensure that you maximise your free drinks at the same time don’t piss off the cocktail waitresses.. FREE DRINKS IN LAS VEGAS

Like everything else in Vegas you and gamble as little or as much as you like there are slots from 1c and tables from $5 up slots at $1k per spin and tables with minimums of $5k per hand. Please  remember that most machines are multi lines and to get any return you need to play multiple lines and you should expect a minimum for 25c per spin on a 1c machine Unless you have a few good wins to start with as a rule of thumb you will spend at least twice what you think that you will on slots. $5 tables now are few and far between in the major resorts but Tropicana and believe it or not Bellagio have $5 BJ tables open 24/7 but generally speaking the more upmarket the hotel the less likely you are to find low limit tables. I have had days when I have stared with $40 and it has lasted me all day and I have even left with a profit and had other days where I have dropped $200 in 20 minutes. You can get comps on your play but never ever play for comps take them as nice bonus but don’t expect or try to play just to get a comp.

So roughly here is what I would allow as spending money for a 3 night trip Las Vegas

Taxi to and from airport $40
Tips for bellboy and maid $20 (plus $20 Upgrade trick)
Show with drink $80
Food* $250
Drinks (above free ones) $80
Gaming $300 – $1000
Misc $75

*Food
1 x Luxor 24 hour buffet deal $35
2 x coffee and danish breakfasts $20
1 x med quality dinner $100
1 x good buffet dinner $40
snacks and sodas $55

Please note this is a very rough idea and you really spend as little or as much as you like in Las Vegas,

Vegas with kids over Presidents day

I was asked the question below and I thought that it may help somone else out.

Question: QUESTION: We have decided to stay in Circus Circus. We will fly in from rural Oregon for 4 days. The hotel is cheap, but the flight is expensive. The kids are 12 & 14. We found a plane & motel package for $1400. It gave us 2 free show tickets. In general, can we get discount tickets for the kids? How are the crowds in the amusement park and midway over this holiday. We are considering the $25 all day buffet. Do we have to plan our meal times around crowds? Is an indoor pool and option anywhere-should we even pack swimsuits? How safe is the hotel? Do we need to be with our kids inside the hotel’s attractions? They are good kids, but shy and not worldly or used to cities. How do we get from Circus Circus to see some of the free sights at other hotels? Can we walk?

 

ANSWER: Hi,

OK firstly when you get to Circus Circus please ask for an upgrade the cheapest rooms are the old motel rooms I think that they are called Manor Rooms it is worth paying the surcharge to stay in the towers if the $20 trick (shown bottom of post) is not successful. The manor rooms are away from the main casino and just not very nice.

The amusement park does get crowded just like any other theme park in peak times and whilst it is the biggest indoor theme park it is not as big as even a modest open air park. I have ridden out of season midweek and there were no lines for anything I would suggest that you get their as soon as it opens stay for a few hours and as it gets busy go off and explore something else.

There are not that many shows that will offer a discount for the kids Vegas is seen as an adult resort and whilst there is plenty for all the family the shows tend to think that if they discount a seat to a kid they have lost out if another adult had bought it. However you don’t have to pay a lot of money to see a show in Las Vegas. What we tend to do is look for one show that we cant miss and book that at full price before we go then we have a look at http://www.goldstar.com (you need to join but it is free to do so) and see if there is anything we fancy the look of there we saw a Hypnotist for about $4 once, we also go to the booths on the morning of the day we want to find a show and take what seems good value on that day they change every day. http://www.tix4tonight.com/ get the coupon and print off before you go.

Sorry you have not said when you are going so I cant tell you whether you can swim or not there are no public indoor pools on the Strip in fact that only one I have been to is at Tropicana and that is a sad affair and really not worth it.

I am not happy to say whether the hotel is safe or not as that puts a responsibility on me and what I consider safe and what you do may well differ it is worth noting that there is CCTV everywhere inside the casinos and a large number of security staff. I generally feel pretty safe anywhere on the Strip and in most areas of most casinos.

You will need to be with the Children anywhere near the casino floor you should be able to leave them on their own if you choose to whilst in the theme park and of course they can walk around the Strip on their own but to be honest you are probably better off at night walking with them.

You can easily walk from CC to the other casinos it is probably about 20 minutes from CC to Treasure Island (or TI as it is now known) and from there the rest of the Strip is easy or you can walk to the Sahara and get on the Monorail. Encore is probably about the same walk maybe slightly less. I would suggest that at night you get a cab to or from these places its not that it is unsafe but particularly the walk to Sahara but it can feel a little unsafe and you don’t want to feel like that whilst on vacation and cabs are very cheap in Las Vegas.

$25 per day is of course excellent value but yes you have got it in busy times expect a long wait the other problem that you have is that the food will be very similar from one day to the next and you may get bored with it but as I said it is great value and you know you will be full up and that you will get free soft drinks. There are still good cheap options to eat in Vegas we never ever leave town without going to the Peppermill (http://www.peppermilllasvegas.com/restaurant/index.html) which is a Vegas institution cheap, huge portions and open 24/7 this site shows the menu for there and other places Peppermill Las Vegas We also allays have at least one breakfast at IHOP and have been known to pop in to Dennys. If you decide to go downtown (Fremont Street Experience is something you children will love) eat down there far cheaper than the Strip buffet at Golden Nugget is excellent, you can get downtown on the bus for $2 each. Lets face it though whatever you do (even McDonalds) you are not going to be able to do that on $25 a day.

I hope this helps you

Simon

MGM Grand and Excalibur are also both very good choices to stay if you have kids.

My Las Vegas memories

I first arrived in Las Vegas Labour Day weekend 1992, we arrived at night by car and at this time this was the only way to to arrive in Las Vegas. From miles away you started seeing the faint gleam of neon as you got nearer as you took twists and corners in the road the light got brighter and the excitement rose. I had never been to Las Vegas and to be honest had not read much about it, this visit was just a short stop on a road trip from San Diego to San Francisco, I knew that there were casinos there and I knew that there were shows but nothing more than that. The Las Vegas we arrived to was amazing and immediately I fell in love with the town. On this first trip I had gaming lessons at The Sands, munched 3 castle burgers for 99c at the Hacienda, had 99c Shrimp cocktails, surf and turf for $3.99 and buffets for less than than the cost of Starbucks Latte. I did a Bungee jump at AJ Hackett which was located behind Ballys when you got up the tower it was pitch black to the desert on the East, on what is now a highly populated valley. In 1992 you could get all sorts of freebies from almost every Casino just for gracing it with your presence it was a totally different town.

On my first visit there was no Mandalay Bay, no Luxor, no MGM Grand, no Monte Carlo, no NYNY, No Paris, Bellagio or Venetian, Treasure Island was not built and the Desert Inn proudly sat on the lot now occupied by Wynn. Aside from the casinos there was little reason to come to Vegas except to gamble and maybe to have a stopover or use it as a base for a trip to the Grand Canyon, Vegas was not the playground it is today, many thought that Vegas’s time had gone and Atlantic City would be the new entertainment Mecca and had it not been for the belief, hard work and commitment of the likes of Steve Wynn and Kirk Kerkorian then this may well have been the case and the Las Vegas that I love today would not be there.

Since 1992 I have visited Las Vegas countless times and intend to do so for as long as I am able, in fact this Christmas will be my second in succession that I spend in Las Vegas. I have stayed in many hotels at all levels of comfort from Circus Circus at the value end to Wynn and Bellagio for the height of Las Vegas luxury. I have enjoyed some more than others and this is not always based on price.

Vegas has changed beyond recognition since my first short visit and I have no doubt that this will be the case forever, some changes will be for the better and some for th worse, prices will go up prices will come down Las Vegas will change to what the visitors want and for what they are prepared to pay for. The one thing that I don’t think will change is that there will always be something for everyone to love in Las Vegas and just when you think that you have seen everything Las Vegas will re-write the rule book and amaze you even more.

Britsih Airways to start direct London – Las Vegas service

It seems that Virgin Atlantic is soon to lose its exclusive direct route from the the UK to Las Vegas which it has been enjoying since BMI stopped its direct flights from Manchester in April and since MaxJet went under Xmas 2007.British Airways are about to annouce that they to will be flying daily from London to Las VegasI have to be honest my preferred route is LHR to LAS with United Airlines via either SFO or LAX but lets hope that this competition can do something to shrink the fares and offer us even better value, to match the best value Las Vegas hotel rooms that can be found here.

Officials for the carrier are scheduled to announce a new direct daily service between McCarran International Airport and London’s Heathrow Airport, the busiest international airport in the world. The service, scheduled to begin in October, has been in the works for years and the decision by British Airways to proceed despite the global recession is a major vote of confidence in the future of Las Vegas, which has been hit particularly hard by the economic downturn.

The plan is for daily service to begin Oct. 25, with a flight arriving in Las Vegas at 5:10 p.m. The return trip to London will depart at 7 p.m., Lampl said. The airline will use a Boeing 777 configured with 274 seats, 24 of which will be “world traveler plus,” 36 business-class with seats that recline fully to 180 degrees and 214 economy class. Lampl said the company identified 35 major cities, including Rome; Prague, Czech Republic; Stockholm, Sweden; and Paris, from which travelers could connect to Las Vegas with less than two hours waiting at Heathrow.

If British Airways flies the route at 72 percent load factor, the average load factor for the airline in the most recent reporting period, it would mean about 12,000 arrivals and departures at McCarran a month. The number could be higher if British Airways matches the 92 percent load factor Virgin Atlantic achieves on its route from a smaller airport with less connection potential. Great Britain is the No. 3 provider of foreign tourists to Las Vegas behind Canada and Mexico, according to the LVCVA.

How to get the best room rate in Las Vegas

No one likes to pay over the odds and I never pay more for I have to for anything and this includes my room in Vegas. Sure you sometimes I have to pay more for a room that others but it is still important for me to make sure that I still pay the lowest rate possible.

There are two ways to reduce the amount that you pay, “when you stay” and “how you book” to get the very best rate you need to combine the two. Whilst it is not always possible to have control over when you go it is still possible to make huge savings by being smart how you book.

When you stay
We all know that the time of year can change the cost of your room wherever you stay but in Las Vegas this is magnified a room one night can cost $50 and the next night $350 this was the case for us at MGM Grand in September 2007. I do not know of anywhere else in the World where rates can change as much as the do in Las Vegas.

Friday and Saturday nights
in Las Vegas are the most expensive of the week, in some cases a Friday or Saturday night can cost the same as the rest if the week combined. If you can avoid staying over the weekend do so, this could mean getting out of town for a weekend (we often go to the Grand canyon for a night) or get a cheaper hotel for the weekend we have stayed downtown and off strip just for the weekend.

Check what is on, although there are over 100,000 rooms in Vegas on a busy conference week they can fill up and this affects the price hugely, check what conferences, events and concerts are on when you plan to visit, if you don’t want to se what is on then it is bet to reschedule if you can.

Holidays, Las Vegas if a holiday town and this is when it is at its busiest as a result this is when room rates really go through the roof so if you can avoid being in Vegas over a holiday you will save money.

Time of year, the two weeks before Xmas are the slowest and cheapest of the year and New Years Eve the most expensive night of the year. In July and August rates drop because of the heat, May June and October can be expensive as this is when the weather is good but not the crazy heat that you have in July and August.

How to book
You can not only save a load of money by the way in which you book you can also get extras free food, drinks, entertainment and even return airfares or free nights.

Book direct with the hotel this is probably the most important thing to do, if you book direct you are usually guaranteed to get the best price, by booking direct unless you book a non refundable rate (this will be clear when you book) if the rate drops after you have booked you contact the hotel and they will drop your rate to match this, of course if the rate goes up you will still only pay the rate that you have booked at. We once paid $45 per room per night for Luxor the same room was being advertised at £110 ($150) per night in a brochure.  By booking direct you only pay the first night as a deposit and this is fully refundable if you cancel or change your booking up to 72 hours before check in.

Use a code to book but check that the link takes you directly to the hotels website, these not only give you great rates but loads of extras see here for the best codes online. Look here for some of the best rates available

If you see a deal you like and a rate you are happy with book it straight away as rates change regularly and good deals are often pulled with no notice, as long as you don’t book a non refundable deal you can always cancel later on if something better comes along.  Don’t assume that the rate you see this morning will still be there tomorrow or even later today !!

Use the discounts that still allow you book directly with the hotel, if you see a deal that asks you to pay the entire stay up front 9 times out of 10 it is not directly with the hotel (only exclusion  is a non refundable offer) and therefore you don’t get the advantages of booking direct . There are only so many rooms available on each deal and when that number has been hit the deal will be pulled so book when you see a rate you are happy with.

Keep checking the hotel’s website to see if the rate drops if it does get in touch with the
Hotel and get them to drop your rate.

Book early, Unlike most other places you may visit booking late is not the way to get a good deal booking as early as possible is key, as I have explained you can always cancel if your plans change or you see a better deal later or get the hotel to drop your rate.

As long as you have booked direct then you should be able to have any comps deducted off of your room stay. Its easier to get somemoney back this way than you may think, you generically will not get much if anything off for low denomination slot play but table games and poker just ask to be rated. Last time I was at MGM Grand 4 hours of poker on the $1/2 table got me $40 off of my room bill. You need to go to the players club booth say the night before checkout and ask what you are entitled to and they will adjust your bill there and then. One tip if you plan to use some comp against your room its far better if they see action off of you each day, make sure something happens on your card even if you stick it in a slot and just play $10 this will work for you getting comps. If you have not booked direct no Casino can comp any of your room charges. If you book direct also try the $20 trick !!

Tropicana Las Vegas, my Review

3810 Las Vegas Boulevard South ,
At E Tropicana Ave,
Las Vegas
NV 89190
(739 2222)
www.tropicanalv.com

Location The “Trop” is located on the South Strip surprisingly enough at the junction with Tropicana Avenue; this junction is the busiest in Las Vegas and indeed the whole of the United States. There are bridges to MGM Grand and Excalibur so you can see it is really happening here. Being at the far south end of the Strip transfers from the airport are very quick.

Theme The Tropicana has the theme of a South Sea Island this theme is eminent around the fantastic pool but is not noticeable in the casino but raises its head again in the bedroom.

Attractions There is a small amusement arcade by the entrance to the swimming pool. The Tropicana used to house the “Casino Legends Hall of Fame” this was brilliant and it’s a travesty that it has been shut down. There is apparently a wildlife walk well we never saw it so it must be small. You get free magic shows and shows by the “birdman” outside the Trop. Inside you used to have the Titanic exhibition and BODIES the exhibition, displaying bodies made up from well erm dead people, there are admission charges for both of these but these are sadly now closed with the tittanic exhibition shortly to reopen at Luxor

Pool The pool is amazing a lagoon with little beaches, mountains, waterfalls and in the summer swim up blackjack. In season every Saturday night there is a Miss Hawaiian Tropic competition.

Shows and Entertainment Tropicana is home to the Folies Bergere based on the French music hall of the same name. This is a sexy but fun cabaret (late show topless) with a variety of acts, originally all the dancers came from France but now the Americans have learnt how to dance so use home grown talent. Dirk Arthur a magician performs his cunning tricks here and is now the only act on the Strip to use living big cats. There is also a comedy show and lounge.

Dining Our breakfast we had consisted of a couple of latte’s e which was not bad and a doughnut the quality of the coffee was however surpassed buy the 20 minutes I had to queue to get it. There is no food court as such. We once had the misfortune of eating at the Tropicana buffet, B:$10.99, L:$11.99, D:$15.50 ad Champagne Sunday Brunch $16.25. This is by far the worst buffet I have eaten at anywhere the choice was small and the food had been kept warm for far too long. There was a 241 special on drinks we all drank soda’s (which were free) and still got brought two each time by a crazy waiter that took personal offence to you moving your glass, even to drink from! The Trop has an Italian, a deli , a 24 hour coffee shop and a lobster and steak restaurant after my experience of the buffet I will not be testing any of these

Gaming Cramped, noisy and smoky are the words best used to describe this casino to be fair though there are a great variety of machines and hundreds of nickel ones for cheapskates and low rollers like me. There are about a 45 or so cramped tables. Tropicana advertise having a $5 Blackjack table open all day every day its often only one and very busy $10 is more realistic minimum limit. The roof above the tables is glass looks old and is probably the most attractive feature of this casino. I had a craps lesson here that was both fun and informative, I must add that I did not nor feel that I was expected to bet even $1 of my money on their craps tables after my lesson and indeed I did not. They also have some deal where you pay $20 and get $40 worth of play on “special” machines if you don’t win a jackpot they give you a “valuable” gift steer clear the machines are not as loose as normal machines and the gift is not worth $20.

Drinks service The Depends on the time of day there seemed to be a real shortage of cocktail waitresses in the day and early evening but after midnight they seem to be serving you non stop .

Overall This is the Strip’s little secret; cheap rooms in ta good location but be warned Tropicana has filed for Chapetr 11 protection. The Casino is loud and cramped; the rooms are large but tired. No complaints, as over all you are paying the same as you would at a Motel 6 but getting a full service resort in the heart of the Strip. Stay there whilst you still can as it is one of the last Vegas old school ex mob ran casinos and  it may well be one of the next great casino’s to be turned to a pile of dust.

Good points Great pool, good location and cheap

Bad points The rooms are miles from the check in desk and the casino is between you and the lifts. The Garden rooms are terrible and the casino very smoky. You can now get better rates at Excalibur which is a better hotel.

Top Tips Even if you don’t join them elsewhere join the players club here you get all sorts of freebies that we take home as gifts. At the entrance to the casino by the MGM footbridge there is a big free slot machine you can have a go once a day and win prizes like packs of cards and free show tickets.
