Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
How is it going? I'm finally doing the Hotel Review for my Las Vegas trip. (It was last week, so I'm not THAT far behind, lol)
This was the hotel I booked via Groupon. It was a king or 2 double beds for $14.00 a night. (Yes, $14.00USD) The deal expired, but I am sure they will run it again..just watch Vegas deals.
My roundtrip airfare from Austin, Texas to LAS was $224.00 including all taxes. BUT I really shopped around. Still the was a cheap 5 day holiday.
To read about my trip & adventures start here.
So go to their website, even without a coupon they are very reasonable. And yes Ladies, it's safe. I went alone. Some friends from LA did show up for a couple of days to hang with me, but the rest of the time I was all alone.
Internet - every day had to call front desk to reconnect me. :( they were nice. All staff were super & no one in hotel I talked to complained about staff (which is mostly unheard of) but it was a pain.
There was a "resort fee" of $15.00 a night added on for free net, shuttle service. They also asked for a $100.00 security deposit. I gave them cash and had no problem getting it back when I left.
I immediately thought you could fit a motorcycle in here. WTF? We are up stair? Where on earth did that come from? Anyway, I Don't know...
Phone worked too. As I said I was calling front desk to fix Internet daily, WTF?!
But the A/C was Cold and the room was comfortable. It wasn't posh, but it was fine for the cost. I didn't expect much and was pleased over all.
Anyway, all the reviews say the same thing. Stay in the tower (I stayed in courtyard) because the courtyard is a dump. So was it worth $14.00 a night? OF F*%KING COURSE!
Was it worth $100.? No.
Would I stay here again? Maybe. I miss being on the strip more than I thought I would. But on the other hand the food was much cheaper here, and by cheaper I mean it was ridiculesly cheap. So again, maybe.
Look at this in house bakery. People come from the strip to eat here. :O
The casino is large enough.
But honestly the smoke got to me. I have never been a hater on smokers (I used to smoke --- see Tmi for this & many more embrasshing facts) but at one point I had to just go back to my room. It was bad. :X
This was taken from the Starbucks area. It's small, but services was excellent.
The other cafes - small but good, quick service.
There were a few men that talked to me & a couple that followed me around. But there was plenty of security & they quickly left me alone when I explained I was waiting for my MMA boy friend. (Lol that was a lie, but if you know of a MMA cutey I might be in the market). *wink*
Most of the people here are of the AARP set, which is not bad, mind you. But as we got closer to the weekend more of a "younger crowd" rolled in. Most of the older set talked to me & were friendly enough. The was some Hardcore Bingo happening (according to one nice lady I met) but IDK I don't play. Lol and yes, I won enough the 1st day to pay for the trip. I didn't gamble much after that (rubs wood, don't press your luck) kind of girl.
That was taken on the way to the pool.. Don't ask..lol
So yes, more than likely if I could get a cheap flight and had some time off I would go back for $14.00 a night (even with the $15.00 a night fee, thats cheap.)
Catch you later-
