Hi all-- we are trying to plan a Vegas visit Apr 22-27 (Sun Thurs) and would like some input on the Orleans. Have been to Vegas many times and we almost always stay at a Strip hotel because we seldom rent a car--prefer instead to get around by walking and using public transportation. I know the Orleans is about 1 to 1-1/2 mi off strip, but we have not stayed there before, so any comments would be welcome. (Shuttle, buffet, casino, rooms, in-house restaurants, etc? Is it overrun with kids?) Just 2 of us adults are traveling. Because of time constraints, in order to maximize our time in Vegas, this time we have to fly out of our home city and this is raising the overall price of the trip because of limited airline options and higher airfares, so we are looking at keeping the hotel cost a bit lower. If anyone knows of any online coupons for any of the other hotels, or even for airlines, we'd welcome suggestions as nothing is written in stone yet...just starting the process of hunting down a good deal for that time frame. Thanks all for your advice and for speeding up my research.
P.S. The IP is not an option.
