I vote Yes. The view is spectacular. If you have lunch (cheaper than Dinner) you also get to see the tower without paying extra. There are thrill rides at the top outside, if you are brave. There is an inside and outside observation deck. There are also plaques on the walls that tell the history of vegas.

I've been there and think there are a lot nicer hotels to look at than that one. Now, if you really need to see a view of the city, then that's the place to go. Don't visit it at night. That area is a little seedy.

For a drink at sunset at the Top of the tower is a must do. You can also have dinner up there, the top rotates 360 degrees.

The hotel is not anything special except their are a few shops in there if you like to browse.

Its a must do,

get the monorail upto the Sahara and its across the other side of the road. Head directly for the base of the tower.

It cost $14 to go up and there are secuiry checks and a small line to deal with (only because they have a max limit up top) .

Three ride up top if you feeling brave (you can get entry plus ride package deals), its open Sun-Thur 10am-1am, Fri-Sat 10am-2am

Check out http://www.stratospherehotel.com/thrills/ for prices

I personally went on the night and you cant get a better view (even from a helicopter)- and its not that seedy its just quieter and older area than the south strip

also it you have a meal in the Top of the Tower restaurant - you get free entry to the top after your meal and get to use the super fast elevator

I enjoyed the facts from the friendly elevator attendant while going up. We did it during the day, since we stayed and it was free. I'm sure at night it is obviously better, but during the day you can see what seems like forever into the desert. It's definately a must do. Like mentioned before if you have a monorail pass to the Sahara that would be the cheapest way to get there. Even if you do it at night you'll be fine, just walk with the other crowds of people and you shouldn't be bothered by the "shady people"..hehe
