Location Between Bellagio and Mirage Dead centre Strip; this is the marker for other casino’s location. The only problem is that when Caesars was built no one walked on the Strip; all travel was done by car. As a result the casino entrance is about 500 yards back from the Strip. Don’t worry though the good folks at Caesars have put in a series of moving walkways to get you to their machines quicker.

Theme It’s Rome, ancient Rome from the spectacular fountains, delightful statues and cypress trees that you pass on your way to the casino to the toga costumes the staff wear. This certainly is ancient Rome with electricity and air conditioning. It is a very Grand Rome with loads of marble and gold, everything that can be gold and glittery is gold and glittery. The theme like most of Vegas is completely over the top; but in the best possible way. If there was a casino themed on Las Vegas, Caesars would be it. Las Vegas at its best.

Attractions Well there are the wonderful, if slightly dated magical statues in the Forum shops these are robotic statues that come alive with the aid of smoke and lights and act out Roman and mystical type tales; free and great for the kids. The race for Atlantis IMAX 3d simulation ride, the Omnimax movie theatre where the film actually seems to surround you and several amusements arcades. To be fair the whole of the forum shops could be counted as an attraction with plenty to see

Shopping The Forum shops at Caesars is the best casino shopping mall on the Strip. Re-creations of Michelangelo’s David and a copy of the Tivoli fountain compliment the great range of shops; the whole shopping experience here is great. Shops include many usual US high street stores such as Nike Town, Macys, and FA Schwarz but also designer labels such as DKNY, Hugo Boss and Vasari. It must be good, as the average retail turnover per square foot in the US is $300 per annum whereas the Forum shops take $1200.

Dining La Piazza Food Court is my favourite on the Strip; you enter together, you chose your different food (Pizza, Salads, Hot Dogs, Chinese etc) get your drinks together and pay together. No queuing up separately just because one of you wants Pasta and the other Chinese. The seating area is lovely, on the edge of the casino allowing you to see the action, sort of inside the branches of a big tree. There is a very small buffet with very long queues and quite high prices (B$15.50 L$17.50 D$23.50, Sunday Brunch $23.50 or $33.50 with champagne) which I have not tried. There are several other high quality restaurants including Hyakumi – Japanese, Bacchanal – a six course Roman feast and Café Roma the 24hr coffee shop. General reports of food at these restaurants are good .

Gaming Caesars has 118,000 sq ft of gaming space containing over 2000 slot and video machines, over 70 tables and 13 roulette wheels. Surprisingly there is a very good range of nickel machines here, table limits can be a low $5 minimum but this is only ever one or two tables and only when trade is slow. The layout of the casino is very odd; it seems bitty; like some bits were added on rather as a second thought. Parts of the casino are very dark and others very light. The way in which the floors are arranged makes you very disorientated. I am not sure if this is deliberate or not, but this, along with the expedition back to the Strip does seem to make you stay longer than planned.

Drinks Service I found the drink service to be quite good, although I think that depends on where you sit as there are many nooks and crannies which probably do not receive such good service. I always make sure that any cocktail waitress who passes within 20 foot of me knows I want a drink and this obviously helps a great deal.

Best Thing Just the whole over the top “we have got it and boy are we going to flaunt it” atmosphere.

Worst Thing The distance to the entrance from the Strip and the that Ceasres is confusing easy to get lost and has human traffic jams.

Overall If you ask anyone to name a casino (with possibly the exception of Bob Stupak and Steve Wynn) they will say Caesars Palace. Caesars is Vegas and Vegas is Caesars. You get a chance to see “whales” (high rollers) at play and yet still feel like you are a million dollars putting your nickels into the slots. If you are in Vegas and you can only go to one casino, this has to be it. You will not be disappointed. However be aware there is a large expansion program on at Caesars at the time of writing.

New York New York, Las Vegas My Review

New York New York
3790 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas
NV 89109
Tel +1 (702) 740 6969
New York New York Las Vegas

Location Right on the money, sitting on the corner of the Strip with Tropicana Avenue, the busiest road intersection in the USA. There are foot bridges connecting New York New York with the MGM Grand and Excalibur.

Theme
Well what can I say; it’s the Big Apple. All of the buildings outside are 1/3 scale copies of those in Manhattan including the Empire State, Chrysler and CBS buildings. There is also a Statue of liberty and a Brooklyn Bridge with a ” Coney Island” roller coaster screeching round the whole lot. The theme does not stop outside, as you enter the casino you will see manhole covers with smoke rising out of them, trees in Central Park and hotdog vendors. It is dubbed as the greatest little city in Vegas something, we think, is well earned.

Rooms NYNY used to be a cheap resort I am not sure why but now it’s generally more expensive than MGM Grandand Monte Carlo. The rooms are a little on the small side but they are nice, be warned though if you have a room facing the strip you will hear the rollercoaster. It’s quite cool that your room is in a particular New York Skyscraper like Empire State or Chrysler tower.

Attractions
The Manhattan Express rollercoaster, supposedly the best in Vegas, runs round the outside of the structure speeding up to 67mph for $7 per ride. Sadly The Coney Island Emporium amusement arcade has been closed down. There are Ice shows outside, around Ellis Island, in the winter and tugboats spray water at each other in the summer.

Pool Surprisingly for a resort that has spent so much attention to detail the pool is very small and drab; this is not a place to stay if the pool is very important to you.

Shows and Entertainment Zumanity is the Cirque De Soleil offering here it’s the sensual side of Cirque, that means nudity and sexiness all held together by a drag queen compere. We loved this show it was great fun but you have to be opened minded to enjoy it and you also need to sit facing the center of the stage we were at the side and feel that we missed something for this. Coyote Ugly whilst not a show in the true sense is an interactive bar where the bar tenders dance on the bar and pour drinks directly into patrons mouths.

Dining This is the only Strip resort that has no buffet. America – 24 hour coffee shop is very good though the wait for the food can be longer than you feel it should. Il Fornai is a lovely Italian next to a stream that offers “outside” dining this is one of the best places for breakfast in Vegas. Gallaghers Steak house is pricey but very good you can see all the meat maturing in glass fridges. Nine Fine Irishman is an Irish pub offering good food and ambience. There are also several Delis and hotdog stalls as well as the village eatery. This has a variety of, eat in/take away fastish food.

Gaming 81,000 sq ft of well themed gaming fun containing nearly 2500 state of the art slot and video machines, along with about 50 tables and 7 roulette wheels. NYNY contains one of the best selections of slots on the Strip with a very large selection of my favorites; the good old low roller nickel machines. They have all the usual wheel of fortune, Adams Family, Winning Bid etc. plus Swing which we did not see elsewhere. The gaming area is a little dark and in certain parts slightly cramped but didn’t appear as noisy as some. Live acts performing at the huge bar at the front makes a nice diversion to the hundred dollars you have just lost. I don’t know if we were just lucky but we seemed to have a better hit rate on the NYNY slots than at any other Strip casino. The tables used to be covered in Central Park type tress sadly this has been removed and replaced with somthing that looks like lit up sweet wrappers.

Drinks service Like all casinos the service you receive whilst playing on the lowly nickel machines is never as good as when you are playing on the dollar ones, but the service here, even for us low rollers, was quite good. One thing – steer clear of the coffee.

Overall We love it, it’s exciting and you leave the real world for the time that you are in there. The theme works very well, with a very good variety of slot machines and friendly staff. It is our favorite casino, although it may have helped that we hit a jackpot there.

Good points
The whole theme thing as you enter from the upper level is New York; it works well and is great fun.

Bad points
I don’t think that there is anything that I dislike about NYNY apart from that at busy times we had to wait for machine attendants but this could have been the same anywhere.

Top Tip If you ride the rollercoaster and love it you can by re-ride tickets for about half price or if you really love it you can buy an unlimited daily ride pass.

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 !!

Mirage, Las Vegas Volcano to open 8th December 2009 great deals

Mirage is my favorite hotel on the Las Vegas Strip we had part fo our wedding reception there and have a booking for this Christmas, the Volcano my joint favorite free show, it has been closed now for sometime and has been rebuilt to make it even better, the Volcano will re open on December 8th 2009 and the good folks at Mirage have put together some special deals to coincide with this and I have listed them below.

Mirage was the first Casino that Steve Wynn built and to be honest without this wonderful property it is unlikely that the Las Vegas that we all know and love would be here as it is today. When Mirage was built Vegas was in decline Atlantic City was the place to gamble and had taken most of the East Coast trade, President Regan had passed the Indian act and Indian Casinos were about to spring up all over the country, everyone was thinking that Vegas would melt away. Steve had a hard job raising the funds to build this massive total luxury no expense spared resort but he managed mainly on junk bonds. Mirage still stands today as one of the premier properties on the Strip and is one of the few where it still feels like Vegas and not Disneyland, all of the rooms have been refurbished in 2008 and with the offers below this possibly makes it the best value resort on the Las Vegas Strip, but hey don’t take my word for it see for yourself.

Darin Feth’s of Nitetours – Tips on Vegas nightlife

Studio 54Getting around
Cab lines ups are long and takes forever, you are better off paying a limo outside the front doors of the hotel. Most of these limo’s are looking for short trips and you can negotiate a classy ride for as low as $25 for a regular SUV or sedan that fits 4 people or a 10 passenger for only $45 total price.

If you prefer to drive, ALWAYS PARK IN VALET, unless it is a Saturday night or a Fight night in Vegas, then you are best to park in the parkade as valet will take you forever to get your car out.

How to save money and go drinking
So you want to go out and enjoy the nightlife, but first you want to “Pre-Sip”
before you hit the clubs. We all know the clubs and ultra lounges charge $12 to $18 per drink (the average person cannot afford that each night), so our Nite Tours secret is to go to the Island Bars in the Casino where they have the video poker. Put $20 into the machine and Tip $5 to the bartender as you receive your first drink. Tip him $5 every third drink and play max on the video poker, but take your time there is NO TIME LIMIT as to how long each hand on the video poker must be played and you can order drinks all night long. If you hit a few good hands you maybe up $$$ so when you cash out you get your $20 back and you tipped $20 for 10 “very Strong Drinks”…There you go, how to get drunk on $20…

Club Line Ups
If you ever see a well dressed guy on the other side of the ropes walk up to youLAX
while you are in line, and asks “Can I help you”? that is your opportunity to tiphim (palm the money) to get into a club. This is an excellent way to by pass long line ups, however you will tip $20 to $30 per person and you will still have to pay the $40 cover, but that sure beats a 2 hour wait to get into the clubs.

Most clubs are dead inside, but they start a line up outside the club. There is nothing you can do about it. A good trick is to get to the clubs early if you are all girls or a mixed couples you will get in. If you are all guys, you might as well pack a lunch, you will be in the line up all night long. Again get to the club early, they always let all the ladies in first. Nite Tours gets into the clubs first before anyone else, and all I see in the club is WOMEN, so if you are a single guy this is PERFECT for you. it is like shooting fish in a barrel, but later on in the evening the clubs change from 80% to 30% women so work your magic early

  Hi **** It would be my pleasure to help in anyway I can I love Vegas and I lovehelping people sort it all out so if you need any help please ask as muchand as often as you like. At this moment in time with Max Jet going under there are only towcompanies that fly direct to Vegas from the UK Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick and BMIfrom Manchester, sadly if you are flying economy I would not recommendeither, Virgin give you no space and try to make up for it by giving yougood entertainment and OK food and BMI is just a cheap airline. I havestarted flying with United I have paid $350 per year and this gives you(and one person traveling with you) an upgrade to economy plus whichwhilst not true Premium economy it give you 5 extra inches of leg roomwhich is all I am concerned about. I try to fly via either LA or SanFrancisco as this means I spend longer in a more comftable plane and alsothat I have a seat back TV for the majority of the trip (need to make sureyou are in 777), you also clear customs in LAX or SFO which means when youget off the plane in Vegas you are in your hotel room 30 minutes later. My last three trips I have stayed at least part of the time in MGM Grand,now I don’t particully like MGM but it has lot of facilities, the roomsare very good but most of all they have great deals last trip was 4 nightsFri-Tue and I paid £200 ! AS soon as you start talking suites the costgoes up big time and to get a 1 bed suite will often cost more than twostandard rooms, the only strip properties I know with 2 bed suitesavailable to you and me are Bellagio and Mirage and both of these are farmore expensive than a couple of rooms. In MGM you can have two doubles anda rollaway bed if there are three of you. Luxor also offers good value andall of the building work will be finished by then, LAX and the Cathouseare two of the hottest places to go and they are on site there along withFantasy a classy topless show. If you want to go cheaper you could stay atExcalibur or Tropicana and if you want to go really cheap Imperial Palacebut I would draw my line at Excalibur. As far as booking the rooms goes ifyou book now the prices will go down but if you have booked and the pricesgo down you call the hotel up and get them to adjust your price or youcancel the booking and re book, as long as you book directly with thehotel (all of the links @ http://www.vegasuncovered.com) go directly to the hoteland give you this option. I will get discount dates from around Decemberfor your dates so if you book something when you are ready (ensuring youdon’t book a non cancellation rate, these rates show clearly on thewebsite that they you cant cancel them) and then email me around Decemberand I will see what codes I get in then. If you book through my websiteyou will not get a better rate and I get 2% commission I don’t make muchmoney on this but it keeps the site going, I would always help youregardless of which way you booked I would be over the moon if you bookedyour hotel via there, with the codes I get you will not find it cheaperanywhere else.    If you like clubbing you have to plan as just like another city groups ofmen are not what the clubs are after. You can do the split up thing or youcan order bottle service this is usual in Vegas and LA but not many otherplaces and it works like this; you order a bottle of spirits this will beserved to you at a table and you will get all the mixers with it. Its notcheap it’s from about $350 per bottle and you need a bottle for everythree guys. Its around $40 to get in to most clubs and also you will haveto queue  for ages even with “VIP” line passes that you can get I alwaysrecommend people go no my friend Darin’s Nitetours http://www.nitetours.comhewould mix your group with a hen night to get in to the clubs and alsoarrange visits to gentleman’s clubs if you want no queuing, no hasslegetting in and no extra costs and free unlimited beer and champagne Ithink his tours start at $69 or $79 drop him a line dfeth@nitetours.commention my name and he will help you out. There are plenty of other activities that are great for stag nights whenyou have sorted your numbers out drop me a line and I will give you somesuggestions. Hope this helps Simon PS apologies for spelling and grammar errors but it is very early

Fire at Monte Carlo, Las Vegas

A fire has broken out at Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino which has led to the LAs Vegas Strip being closed below is the report from the BBC website.
Guests flee Las Vegas hotel fire Guests have been evacuated from a hotel and casino complex in the US city of Las Vegas after a fire broke out on the roof and top floor of the building.
Plumes of smoke billowed from the Monte Carlo hotel on the city’s main street, the Strip, but the blaze was quickly contained by firefighters.
The fire broke out at about 1100 (1900 GMT) but the flames were brought under control about an hour later.
No-one is reported to have been injured and the cause is not yet known.
Guests, including a bride in wedding dress, were relocated to nearby hotels.
Tim Szymanski from the Las Vegas Fire Department told the BBC the blaze appeared to be confined to the outside of the building:
“It’s a little difficult because… you don’t have fire ladders that can reach up to the 32nd floor, they can only go up to about the sixth or seventh floor. The fire appears to be on the exterior of the building, not on the inside,” he said.
He added that the building was fully equipped with automatic fire sprinklers.
‘Burning debris’
Local officials said the hotel’s top floor penthouse suites, traditionally used by the casino’s high rollers, seemed not to have been affected by the fire.
Clark County fire chief Steven Smith denied local media reports that there were people still trapped in the building.
“We will do a thorough look through the building to make sure everyone is accounted for,” he said, quoted by AFP news agency.
Larry Wappel, from Indiana, told AP news agency that he and his brother were in a room on the 30th floor when they heard hotel staff banging on doors and telling guests to evacuate.
He said it took about 10 minutes to walk down the stairs to get to the ground floor.
“There were a couple of ladies crying, but it was pretty calm,” he added.
Another guest, Renza Badilla, was on the main casino level when the fire alarms went off and said she exited through the hotel kitchen to find burning debris and embers falling from the roof.
The entire Las Vegas Strip was shut to traffic and neighbouring hotels also evacuated.
The 3,000-room Monte Carlo hotel and adjoining casino are owned by entertainment company MGM Mirage.
Modelled on the Place du Casino in Monaco, it was completed in 1996 costing more than $300m to build.
A fire at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Hotel in 1980 claimed more than 80 lives and injured nearly 700 people.

10 Dumbest things to do in Las Vegas

1.       Gamble more than you can afford to lose. This is the single dumbest thing that you can do in Las Vegas. Look around you; who pays for all the free shows, drink and subsidised meals? The punters of course. The chances of you beating the house are so slim that they are not worth calculating. Think of gambling as a way of paying for entertainment and not as an investment.

2.       Jay walking. The Strip is one of the busiest roads in the US cross where possible at bridges where not only use proper crossings and only cross when signalled to do so. Failure to comply with this could not only ensure that you become a short term Strip attraction but could land you a night in Jail. Jay walking is illegal in the US and you will get arrested for it.

3.       Carelessness with your valuables and money. Whilst I have never felt threatened in Vegas you are constantly reminded that pickpockets operate in this area. It is easy to get distracted with so much to see and do that I am sure it’s easy pickings for these criminals. Be careful particularly when at slot machines and tables. Keep your wallet/purse in front of you; I now wear mine on a chain since the Venetian incident. (see Casino report)

4.       Pay anything less than 100% attention whilst driving down the Strip. There is a lot to see, it’s very exciting but pay attention. There have been many accidents caused because proper attention was not being paid to the road. There have even been cases of people trying to film and take pictures whilst driving. The police are very tough on motor offences on the Strip so be careful and keep safe.

5.       Not use sun protection. It’s very dry in Vegas; as a result it feels a lot cooler than it really is. 100F in Vegas only feels like about 80F at home! Don’t be caught out cover up, use sun protection lotions and ensure that you drink loads of fluids throughout the day.(Medical tip: Beer / Alcohol doesn’t count as fluid! it will dehydrate you further)

6.       Play the slots in the Airport. With average slot payout in Vegas around 92-96% it’s a good bet, rumour and experience have shown that the slots in the airport are much lower than this. Despite this I played last trip and turned $10 into $150 !!!

7.       Gamble whilst drunk. The drinks are free in Vegas whilst you gamble, any ideas why? You got it; it’s a proven point that people will take more risks when they have had a few beers. Don’t let them fool you make it 1-0 to the punter!!

8.       Play Keno. Odds closer to the national lottery with much lower jackpots than Bingo. Has house odds stacked up so high they reach the casino ceiling; this really is a mugs game.

9.       Try to cheat. This is really stupid; casinos have cameras everywhere and are familiar with every trick in the book. You simply will not get away with it; if you are in any doubt I suggest that you watch the film Casino prior to leaving home!

10.   Turn up in Las Vegas on a Friday, Saturday or Holiday without a reservation. Although you would have to be very unlucky not to get any room, except for Mid November when Comdex is on and all rooms tend to be booked. You will probably not be able to either get in to your first choice and will most definitely pay a lot more than you would if you had pre booked.
