We will be in Vegas in August, a family of 4, with kids ages 10 & 14, for 2 nights before heading to Arizona, and for 2 nights on our way back. I've been monitoring specials on hotels. The whole trip is costing us a fortune, so I'm trying to save a little where I can...and there are great deals right now in Vegas....
We have the opportunity to stay in 2 different places...that is, 2 nights when we arrive, and 2 nights before we depart. I have it "narrowed down" to 4 places...although I may have thrown a 5th into the mix, but not sure. Now I am in a quandary!
Luxor (seems the pool, while beautiful, is not very deep, and I want a place the kids can really have fun in the water, so I'm on the fence....)
Palace Station (off strip)
Palace Station includes breakfast, which is a nice bonus. I stayed there once, for a wedding, and it was fine, and I'm thinking maybe Palace Station before we leave to go home, and on the strip when we arrive...???
Help! Any thoughts are appreicated.
Friends of ours just returned from Vegas, and they said the problem with the strip/casino hotels was that there was smoke everywhere, and so their kids didn't even like walking into the hotels...which would be a reason to stay off strip or in a non-casino hotel.
(I've seen reasonable rates at some of the non-casino hotels and time shares, but the ones around our price range tend to be 1 bed and a pull-out, which my family doesn't love... We like 2 beds with a roll-away option.)
Also, Planet Hollywood, though a little more expensive, has some nice deals now...wondering if it's worth going there....
I'm interested in your opinions! THANKS!
