Consider renting a scooter?

If you've been before, you know how the distances are. Even getting from the front door to the elevator can seem like a hike to those without a medical condition.

A Cirque show and a jazuzzi? Hmmm....I'll have to think about that. Problem is most standard rooms aren't going to have a jetted tub; you're looking at getting a suite of some type at a lot of places. Can the budget handle that?

Scooter might come but hurts my pride for now.

Hurts your pride?? What are you soneone special? People use them all the time to help with their mobility issues but if you're too proud to use one then walk.

She didnt say she was too good. Bashing someone who still has that pride in theirselves is pretty low.

Do whatever makes YOU comfortable obviously. If you dont want a scooter then don't, although it may be easier in the end I can totally understand reasonings you may not.

I've never been yet, but enjoy your stay and I hope you find something accommodating.

refusing to use something that will help you especially when you have medical difficulties like the OP has with severe arthritis is foolish and shouldn't let their pride deny them of the comfort of getting around so much easier with the scooter. Use the scooter and make your trip so much more easier and pleasureable.There is nothing shameful about using a scooter if you need one so don't let your pride come into play here.Make it easy fir yourself is what I'm saying

" I'm looking for a hotel casino that will provide a good selection of slots-minimal smoke smell-big juccuzi tub-a nice cirque show-and a decent selection of restaurants-all with as little walking as possible. One stop shopping for the most part. I can take a taxi for distance. But my days of walking the strip morning to night are gone. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help."

Most all of the decent Hotels Mid Strip will meet your requirements except for maybe the juccuzi tub in a std room. At check-in ask for a room close to the elevator and tell them why you need that.

As far as a cirque show I would recommend any of these three

i definitely know how the op feels...

husband was the same way...but once he did rent his scooter he loved it and wouldn't/couldn't do it any other way.

you care more than anyone else does...no one will look down on you, they're too concerned with their own stuff...it makes such a difference being able to do anything you feel like without worry.

Scooters can be great but they also have their downsides which make many people hold out as long as possible

You are lower to the ground so you cant see as far ahead, driving through a crowd if you arent used to using one can be frustrating, curbs, escalators, moving sidewalks, broken elevators at the pedestrian bridges. Narrow isles between machines, narrow spaces between tables at restaurants.. All things you dont think about when you are on foot.

With a scooter I'd probably say Bellagio has the most friendly layout and tram access to Aria and Monte Carlo

If you are on foot.. Paris might work. Connected inside to Ballys, very short walk to Planet Ho and a quick cab ride to any Cirque show.

I have some mobility issues and I find Ballys/Paris to be a good central home base. Close to several places but enough in house to keep me happy if walking isnt going to be an option due to pain flare up

Not sure about the jetted tub
