Las Vegas 2011

A May 2011 trip to Las Vegas by AClark2010

Quote: Was here for a conference but took advantage of the location to do some sight-seeing and attractions.

The Venetian Gondola Rides

Attraction | "Not as much to it as expected."

Quote:
This was an experience I'm glad to say I have had but there was not much to the ride as expected. Our guide did a wonderful job singing to us and it was a fun experience.

Good luck figuring out where to park. It would have been nice to try the buffet but we gave up after driving around unsure how to get into the place.

Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville

Restaurant | "Good and not as pricey as other strip dining locations"

Quote:
Dining in Vegas is expensive, Margaritaville is a place to have a great time, relax, and get more for your money in a casual environment without having to stress about how unbelievably much the bill is going to be...

Las Vegas Hotel & Casino

Hotel | "Mixed feelings"

Quote:
This hotel had 2 things going for it, it has an awesome view and is adjacent to the convention center. It is a very basic place to stay and has obviously not been updated/remodeled. Smells like smoke. It wasn't up to usual Hilton standards. For a basic room with substandard cleanliness they charge extra for everything like wireless internet and use of the room's safe. We returned to the room after housekeeping came the 1st day and the sheets the bed was made with were obviously not clean sheets. We forwent housekeeping after this. We were very unimpressed.

Desert Passage at the Aladdin

Attraction | "This is Now at the MIRACLE MILE SHOPS"

Quote:
The shops are now called Miracle Mile shops and the rainstorm is cool but not quite as impressive as I thought it would be. Its free though and free is good

Bellagio Fountains

Attraction | "Great free entertainment!"

Quote:
This outdoor show on the Strip is a must see Vegas icon. Its free and occurs frequently so its easy to catch and won't break the bank like everything else in town
