Trip Report- Day 1
Flew Southwest from Albany to LAS. Boarded A- got 2 seats together and no one in between us . It was nice to have a little extra room. Great flight although the crew was a little cranky. We arrived ½ Hr. early- 11:30am.
We went to the baggage carousel and tried to find our luggage...they had 4 SW carousels with about 6 flights listed on each but not ours....after about 45 minutes of walking around to each one looking for our luggage I finally spotted it on a carousel . Our flight number was never listed on any of the carousels.
Proceeded to shuttle to car rental center, walked right on the shuttle and it left a minute later. It was less than a 5 minute ride to the center. Went to the Avis desk and stood in line for maybe 5 minutes or so. I had reserved a sub compact over the internet for a really good price last month. They didn't have any subcompacts left so they upgraded us to a Mustang GT for the same price!! Awesome car! It has some pick up! My husband says it corners like it’s on rails ( whatever that means). I just like the way it drives.
Drove to The strip to Bills to check in at Bill’s Gambling Hall. When we were checking in I asked if they had any upgrades and they so , no not tonight ( it was Friday) so my husband said I realize it's the weekend and you are busy but if something becomes available on Sunday would you consider upgrading us then. He told them how it was our 1 year anniversary and we had gotten married in Las Vegas last year and blah, blah, blah....so the girl said hang on let me check something. It turns our the did have a room to upgrade us to. It is a beautiful, huge suite. Living room, king bed, dining area, wet bar w/fridge and freezer, 2 baths, a giant Jacuzzi tub, a stand up 2 headed shower , 3 plasma screen TV’s and 6 phones!! Really, Really nice!!
The room wasn’t ready so we headed out to the Whole Foods market because I need to pick up a few things. I have food allergy issues ( wheat/gluten) and I needed to pick up a few things for breakfast for the week. When we returned we were able to check in. It took about 5 minutes, no line at all.
Came back to the hotel, rested a while, got ready and went to The MGM Grand Garden Arena to see The Police in concert. What an awesome show. They played every hit song and then some.
I waited almost 25 years to see them and it was well worth it.
Finished with the show about 11ish and we are super hungry so we had a late dinner at PF Changs at Planet Hollywood , walked back to Bills and fell into bed. Comfy bed. I slept like a baby. It was about 5am ( NY time) and we had been up for almost 24 hours. I was exhausted. It was a really long but fun day.
Tomorrow- Valley of Fire, Pampas and Roger Waters in concert.
