First time in Vegas and looking to rent a condo on the strip

Hi there

Would appreciate any help.

There will be 6 of us looking to possibly rent a condo on the strip. It will be our first time there and don't have a clue as to where to stay.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Well, guess to start i'd have to ask you a couple of questions:

- Why a condo?

and...

- how much are you planning to spend for the condo?

as to where in Strip, look at PH Towers, Vdara, or Sig.

I don't know exactly why a condo to be honest.

We went with a group in the DR and rented a villa and having our own pool was fantastic.

I have heard that the strip is crazy busy which is great but at the same time maybe a place without all the noise and chaos would be a good time out??

I would think that we would have a range of about 4-5 thousand dollard for 10 days.

OK. Tanja, Vegas Strip condos are all in the high rise varieties, dont have casinoes on property(and that's what Vegas is built on :) ) and usually goes for $150/nite upwards.Do you need kitchen, etc?

Are you talking 6 adults, or kids? The simple fact is that you can get 2-3 rooms in a luxury Las Vegas hotel for less than one 2 bedroom suite or condo.

We would be 6 adults.

Being completely new to the whole Vegas thing, we really don't have a clue at to what would be best for a group.

What hotels would you suggest?

I have heard about the Treasure Island being a good location but again I have only seen pictures of Vegas so am not sure as to what is a good spot or not.

We were thinking condo as it would be nice to get away from all the excitement and to make our own breakfast.

When are you coming? If it's pool weather that would be a factor.

I'm not a condo person; when I'm on my vacation the last thing I want to do is cook my own meals, but that's just me.

I would pick two or even three rooms in a nice hotel like MGM; a solid property with a great pool area and a wide variety of eating options from a food court to $500 french cuisine.

If the budget is $400-$500/day you've got lots of options.

Tanja, you will pay a fortune for a condo big enough for 6 adults. Maybe try the Platinum or as someone suggested the new Vdara. IMHO you would be better off staying in the same hotel with your own rooms. Most of the hotels have beautiful pool areas to relax, even if a bit busy.

Another suggestion might be the Staybridge Suites. Not on the strip, but not far away and really quite nice. Would be a quieter place as no casino but you might find it is more of a family place, plus you'd have to cab it to the strip.

I often stay in condos when travelling, but I would not do it in Vegas (unless with my kids). You are there for usually a short time, and there is so much to see and do, why waste time cooking for yourselves? There are great food choices in every price range imagineable.

You have a few options here. Since this is your first trip to Vegas, the normal thing to do is stay in a strip casino, so you can get the whole experience.

1. Planet Hollywood Tower just opened and may be the perfect fit for what you are requesting. phtowers.com

2. THEHotel at Mandalay Bay is an all suite boutique hotel that has a great pool area and very economical nightly rates.

3. Any strip hotel with adjoining rooms would also work for you and possibly save you some money.

Hopefully this helps a bit.

NO to a condo on your first trip.

www.smartervegas.com for find up to date publicly available hotel promo codes.

Getting 3 rooms in today's Vegas economy will be cheaper than renting a condo.

You'll want to eat at all the great restaurants anyways so you won't use the kitchen. Getting 3 rooms and doubling up will give everyone some privacy or time away from each other.

You can't go wrong with being anywhere on the strip. If you've got a week, consider breaking up your stay. 3 nights here and 3/4 nights there. Pick different hotels in different locations to get a different experience.

The Platinum might be an idea. One of the few condo hotels to have 2 queens in a room. My husband's stayed there, liked it very much, and have met people staying there in Vegas who also have raved about it. It is not quite on strip, but behind Bally's, walking distance.
