How does the saying goes? What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Well, I have to share the amazing time my fiancee and I had at this establishment. The Westin exceeded my expectations. We really enjoyed our stay. It was a dream come true to just be in Vegas. We loved our stay.

According to the Travel Channel, the Best Western Plus Casino Royale on the Las Vegas Strip is one of the “best places in the world to strike it rich” – on par with the Kentucky Derby and the Monte-Carlo Casino in Monaco – due to “great odds and low minimums.” Maybe it’s because the Casino Royale offers 100 times odds on craps. The casino also features such table games as roulette, blackjack switch and Caribbean stud, as well as over 500 slot and video poker games (from one-cent to five-dollar pulls), including Wheel of Fortune and Megabucks.
Conveniently located across the street from the Mirage, this hotel offers more than 150 comfortable, affordable accommodations surrounded by the 24/7 sizzle of the Strip.
Stay on the premises for exciting gaming action, and you can enjoy lunch or dinner at the Outback Steakhouse, featuring beautiful views of the Strip. Or feast upon the classic White Castle as well as Denny’s and our food court.
MGM Grand truly lives up to its name, not only in sheer size, but also in its vast offerings. Located at one of the busiest intersections in Las Vegas, it provides a world of entertainment, dining and unwinding — both day and night. Recently, the resort completed a $160 million remodel to upgrade all of its rooms and suites, has added a brand new nightclub and several new restaurants.
Entertainment is plentiful with several options in a variety of unique venues. The Cirque du Soleil show “KÀ” takes audiences on a heroic journey that will feel like the latest blockbuster movie. A lineup of renowned performers come to the David Copperfield Theatre, while some of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest acts, from the Rolling Stones to U2, take the stage in the Grand Garden Arena — also home to many highly touted championship boxing events. And Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club offers plenty of laughs.
You have multiple dining choices at the MGM Grand that include the exquisite tastes of Joël Robuchon and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, the sophisticated tastes of Fiamma Trattoria or the classic pub fare of Michael Mina Pub 1842. Whether it’s steak and lobster at Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak or the beloved American delights at Avenue Café, you’ll never go hungry here. Plus, you can experience the traditions of different cities in Las Vegas — Hakkasan Las Vegas restaurant offers unique Cantonese-style cuisine with flavors of Hong Kong and Shanghai, try Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House for the tastes of the “Big Easy” or venture over to Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill for the tastes of Southern California. The Morton Group, led by restaurateurs Michael and Jenna Morton, opened Crush — a celebration of food, drinks and friends — at the resort, and Hecho en Vegas, serves a wonderful mix of traditional Sonoran cuisine and popular Mexican favorites.
Along with fine dining, there are plenty of places for casual eats — from the MGM Grand Buffet to the ample MGM Grand Food Court and Blizz Frozen Yogurt.
The Lobby Bar offers an extensive cocktail list and Centrifuge lures the crowds at nighttime and well into the early morning hours. Tap Sports Bar serves American favorites for lunch and dinner, but guests can also enjoy 48 draft beers, sports memorabilia and watching games on 60-inch HD TVs.

Keep the party going all day long in the summer at the pool club Wet Republic or relax at the Grand Spa, which offers several therapies in more than 20 zen-inspired treatment rooms, far away from the chaos of the casino.
MGM Grand’s enormous casino entices players, with games including blackjack, craps, roulette and an array of slot and poker machines, as well as keno, a baccarat lounge and high-limit slots. The race and sports book offers private skyboxes, a bar and the adjacent Stage Deli.

Shopping is plentiful along The District and in The Underground, two neighborhood-like areas at the resort. You’ll discover glittering jewelry and watches, keepsakes, clothes, sweets and more.
There aren’t many hotels with offerings so grand that it’s practically an entire vacation under one roof. With such a wide variety of things to do and see at the MGM Grand, don’t be the least bit surprised if it takes more than one visit to experience it all.

You may be in The Mirage, but it feels more like Polynesia.
In the lobby, guests waiting to check in are entertained by the aquatic life in a 20,000-gallon saltwater aquarium behind the front desk. Nearly 1,000 forms of marine life, including sharks, stingrays, porcupine fish, eels, sea bass and puffer fish call this place home.

Or just sip on a cocktail and take in the sights of bustling Fremont Street from the Vue Bar, which boasts both indoor and outdoor patio seating.
Afternoons are also a blast at The D. Comedy magician Adam London appears in “LaughterNoon.”

Located on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, Circus Circus Hotel, Casino & Theme Park has been a family favorite for years. With circus acts in the midway, thrilling rides in The Adventuredome and both casual and gourmet dining, this hotel has something for everyone.
Since opening in 1968, Circus Circus has appeared on screen in many films. It was a malevolent wonderland in Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and a backdrop to the foreign intrigue in the James Bond thriller “Diamonds Are Forever.” The quirky romance between Austin Powers and Vanessa Kensington blossoms in front of the iconic clown marquee in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.”

A shopping promenade connects all areas of the hotel and houses several restaurants, including THE Steak House, a highly touted gourmet room serving Midwestern beef dry-aged to perfection. Throughout the property there are more than a handful of places to grab a quick bite or cup of coffee (such as the Pizzeria, the West Side Deli and Blue Iguana Mexican Express), while the casino is home to an enormous buffet.
Mötley Crüe front man Vince Neil has opened Vince Neil’s Tatuado Eat-Drink-Party! restaurant and Vince Neil’s Party Bus Bar at Circus Circus. They showcase the rock star’s love of tattoos and tequila in an atmosphere reminiscent of the legendary Sunset Strip rock clubs where Neil and his pals launched their paths to stardom.
Circus Circus also touts the largest space-frame dome in the United States, The Adventuredome, an indoor theme park featuring the Canyon Blaster, a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster, guaranteed to make you scream. The new El Loco, featuring a 72-second ride with gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists, provides a heart-dropping thrill as well.
An intimate race and sports book, pools and a unique rotating carousel-like snack bar round out the experience and should serve to reinforce any desire to run away and join the circus.
A Las Vegas institution, Circus Circus is one circus that’s always in town.

Taking what was a calculated risk for 1979, father and son Sam and Bill Boyd opened Sam’s Town. Their goal was to create an environment where locals would feel comfortable playing. More than three decades in business, Sam’s Town has become an indispensable stop for locals and visitors alike.
Rooms are built around a truly spectacular indoor atrium, Mystic Falls Park, that must be seen to be believed. With a nine-story glass roof and a 25,000-square-foot indoor area filled with trees, waterfalls and footpaths, it is one of Las Vegas’ unique surprises.
The restaurants here are among the town’s most popular. The extensive menu at The Angry Butcher, featuring huge steaks with all the fixin’s is as delicious as they come. T.G.I. Friday’s has an outpost in Sam’s Town, as do several fast food eateries including McDonald’s, Panda Express and Subway.
The free “Sunset Stampede,” a dancing waters and laser show, dazzles crowds nightly. Dozens of other amenities — including a 56-lane bowling center, an 18-screen movie theater, an arcade, Gatsby’s Salon and the Sam’s Town Live entertainment complex — serve only to complement what is still one of the most popular locals’ casinos, with three separate floors of round-the-clock gaming action, a fine race and sports book, a lively bingo hall and a poker room.

**Construction on the hotel will commence on May 29 and last until October 1, 2017. Don’t be alarmed if you hear a little more noise than usual. And the Mystic Falls Park will be closed from April 17 – May 17. When you arrive, the front desk will alert you of said construction and will answer any questions you may have.**
Sunset Station is one of the best reasons to stray from the Las Vegas Strip. Whether you’re seeking fun for the whole family, a wild night out with friends or an elegant, romantic evening for two, this neighborhood hotel-casino located in Henderson (about 20 minutes away — just off the I-515/U.S. 95) can make wonderful things happen.
A 13-screen cinema, an enormous bowling alley, an action-packed casino, lounges and bars with entertainment and a variety of dining options are among the offerings at Sunset Station, which sits on an expansive 98 acres, portraying the ambience of a Spanish Mediterranean village inside and out.
The well-appointed rooms at Sunset Station come with a variety of amenities. More than 2,400 slot and video poker machines; 39 table games including blackjack, craps and roulette; a bingo hall; a 300-seat race & sports book; and a keno lounge comprise the casino.
At the center of the casino, the stained glass-accented Gaudi Bar provides a spot to people watch and keep an eye on the casino action while relaxing with a few drinks. Live music is offered here on weekends. Concert-goers can also enjoy some of the music industry’s hottest acts in Club Madrid and the Sunset Amphitheater.

Though billed as a locals casino, tourists won’t regret taking the short driving detour off the Strip to visit Sunset Station.
With its brilliant pink and orange façade, the Flamingo is as colorful as the history behind it.
It seems appropriate that the Flamingo is a direct descendant of the hotel where modern Las Vegas began. Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel’s original Flamingo is gone (torn down in 1993), but the hotel that bears the name continues to live up to its name.
The lush gardens behind the room towers seem removed from Las Vegas entirely, with live pink Chilean flamingos, ducks, swans, turtles and koi fish frolicking in ponds and under three-story waterfalls. A number of swimming pools — including the stunning main pool with its seasonal water slide and the party-like Go Pool — make the Flamingo seem less of a casino and more of a full-fledged resort.
But the animals and water attractions aren’t the only entertainment at the Flamingo — plenty of humans worth checking out call the resort their home too. The women of “X Burlesque” offer some adult fun in the late evenings. Jeff Civillico is featured in a wacky comedy/juggling show in the afternoon. There are shows to suit all ages as well, including the song stylings of brother and sister duo Donny and Marie and the celebrity tribute show “Legends in Concert.”
Restaurants at the resort cater to tastes ranging from American and Italian to Japanese cuisines.

Melding the nostalgia of old Las Vegas with the sophistication of the city’s most extravagant landmarks, the Golden Nugget remains the treasure of Fremont Street.
This legendary hotel has witnessed it turn from a barely paved road to one of the most photographed thoroughfares in the world and finally into its most recent incarnation, the Fremont Street Experience. Through all that time, the Golden Nugget has stood as proud and priceless as the 61-pound gold nugget displayed inside the casino.
From more than 2,400 luxury rooms to the hotel’s gold-leaf facade, everything is rich with Victorian refinement and sheer elegance here. The largest resort in downtown Las Vegas only gets better with age. The Golden Nugget’s most recent addition, the upscale Rush Tower to the northwest end of the property, provides more upscale, spacious rooms to discerning travelers.
