A July 2004 trip to Las Vegas by The Soup Lady

Quote: Sometimes things just don't turn out as planned, and this trip was definitely one of them. Memorable doesn't even begin to describe it!

Hilton Grand Vacations Club (HGVC) on the Las Vegas Strip

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "Hilton Grand Vacation Club on the las Vegas Strip"

Quote:
Best Things Nearby:The action of the Las Vegas Strip - also really close to the Convention Center (not walking - but easy driving distance.)Best Things About the Resort:Brand, brand, brand new - and the people were wonderful. Also 2 really nice swimming pools, and a fab quick bite pool bar/restaurant.Resort Experience:Our 2 bedroom suite was wonderful. Everything was brand, brand new - including the staff, the pool, the hotel - everything. This made it easy to enjoy. We cooked in several nights to make it easy on my 85 year old father - the kitchen was reasonably equiped and easy to use. We also spent several afternoons enjoying the lovely s...Read More

Prime Steakhouse

Restaurant | "Prime Steak House (and dessert terrace)"

Quote:
Some dining experiences are remarkable, some are just expensive! What made our dinner at the Prime so special was not the meal (which was well served, well presented - and definitely worth the price) – no, what was truly special was where we ate dessert. We were going to see 'O' and didn't have time before the theatre to enjoy dessert - so the waiter suggested that we simply come back. Sounded good to us - but even more special - he reserved us a table at the outside porch that overlooks the dancing fountains. So after the theatre (stunning in its own right - but not nearly as special as Mystere) - we came back to Prime, and were escorted to a lovely table overlooking the dancing water...Read More

Cirque Du Soleil: Zumanity

Attraction | "Zumanity"

Quote:
Awesome, amazing, intriguing, fantastic, breathtaking - and a must see!

We loved this show - yes it's off color - so don't go if you are going to get embarrassed - but if you want to see Cirque du Soleil at its creative (and looking outside of the box) best - this is the show. I would have gladly gone again the next night if I could have gotten tickets. Some advice - yes - you do want to be close to the stage - and yes - do go early! The show starts long before the show starts - and it never really ends either.

Story/Tip

Quote:
We had planned this trip to Las Vegas a year in advance - gotten our timeshare week, were participating in a food show (the reason for going), and had even reserved tickets to shows for almost every night. This was going to be fun. Then my 85-year-old father came to visit, and was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and given less than 6 months to live. What to do. Well - we asked my Dad - and he opted to join us in Las Vegas. Good thing we'd been lucky enough to get a two-bedroom condo! So we quickly made additional airplane tickets, bought a wheelchair for him to use - and the three of us few into Las Vegas. It would have been a memorable trip under any circumstances - but this...Read More
