Cost is very close, please suggest which one is the best.We have 2 adults and 1 small kid.


Bellagio  $523.01
Venetian  $523.09
Encore at Wynn Las Vegas  $545.91
Aria at CityCenter $513.90
Palazzo $556.98
Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas $559.61
Vancouver is ______ !

I suggest you to stay in Aria (or even better: Vdara) , Cosmo is good too.  modern style.  I like that they are new and right in the center.  If you like shopping more rather than gambling, it is a better choice.

Palazzo / Venetian / Encore - Very Nice too.   I haven't stayed these three before. European style.   Try it out!  may be you like it.

Bellagio   not suggest la.

I stayed in Venetian...not like it (maybe because i was giving a no good room). Looks old and dark (no view at all).

Encore and Wynn are very nice. (Encore even better). But poor location IMO. Too far away.

I almost pick Bellagio last time but didn't. But I do think the new one would be better.
And I heard Vdara has no casino. For non-gamblers would be great.

Another tips for you..  Rent a car. (look for priceline or car site for deal).   End up you pay much less and more flexible.   Driving in Vegas is not tough.  Very simple.  If you driver, either park in self park or valet.  Valet is free.  U only need to pay tips.  few bucks.    I usually do valet if go to high class hotel, like venetian.. lol.

If you really want to taxi, then remember, tell them you want to go on the strip instead of highway to your hotel.    Highway is 'faster' but it is a longer route. Actually, the taxi driver should ask you because by law they have to drive u with the shortest route.  But most of them don't do that.  Keep that in mind.  Not only when u go from airport to hotel, even hotel to hotel, tell them u don't want to go on highway.   Of course, provided that you are not in rush.   
Also, remember one more thing, except for driving u from Airport to Hotel which has an extra fee, other than that, you only need to pay the number on the meter and tips IF they provide u good service.   Yes.. They are tricky.  One of the mother fcuker try to charge us tax on top of the meter, with hotel fee, and with tips.  like double the actual cost.  Of course, we didn't pay that.    So, treat those taxi driver as greedy mother fcuker and you can save a lot.   

That's my tips to help you have a happy trip.   

If u like, I can give u tips for food..etc. hahaha   I have been to vegas at least 10 times in last two years.

Also, for hotel, the price you are putting up is weekend price (Fri-Sat).
FYI, Sunday - Thursday normally is way cheaper.  especially Sunday if not long weekend.

You should go to priceline or other hotel deal site to check it out.  I've never paid full price to stay at  these hotels.

driving on the strip? traffic is SOOOOO busy wor....the taxi meter goes faster than my heart beat!

I did rent a car last time (for the first time), sadly I can't find any deals...(I was upset because everyone said there's deal and renting car should be cheap...)
I had a van and then pickup/drop off at different location...maybe that's why.
But if anyone has good tips on renting a van...plz share..seems like all deals are just for sedan.

No.. driving in the strip is not bad.  U know how much longer if you go on highway?  I have calculated out. that's much cheap to ask the taxi to drive on the strip than highway.   But.. I had too many bad experience with taxi.  So, still.. I will say no taxi.

For rental, usually you can find something less than $10 a day for compact car.  of course, they will ask you to buy insurance.  U don't need to buy the expensive one. just the normal one.  So, end up about $20-30 a day.   Hey.  one taxi trip already $10.  if you go from hotel to hotel to hotel, at least $50 on taxi a day.

and nowaday, in Les vegas, u rent car from one place, and drop at the same place. It is centralized now.  and there is shuttle from airport to the car rental building.  and you can find all rental companies there.
i just did a simple search in google a minute ago and went to some 'low fare' 'cheap rental' car site and i see rate from $11-15 a day from Budget etc.   

well.. just my 2 cents that I will tell anyone I know going to Vegas. Rent a car.  Don't take taxi.

    Yeah I'm expecting $20-$30 a day for car rental. But renting a van seems a different story, plus I'm renting from Las Vegas but returning in LA.
End up about $100 a day....and some goes to $140 a day ar...
