The first hotel you stayed at in Vegas

My first visit to Vegas I drove in from LA. We stayed at the Hacienda which at the time was out in the boonies. Not even sure it is still there.

For nostalgia it would be fun to see where others "started" out.

I was just getting divorced, and my friend was going out for business, so he convinced me to come out.

I arrived at the Luxor at 2:00 AM. I wasn't ready to go to sleep. It took me a few minutes to understand why the girls at the bar were all smiling at me. I had never been fresh meat before.

No real complaiants about Luxor, but wouldn't stay there again, not my scene.

Unless it was super cheap........................

First time: one night Casino Royale, Summer 1990. 15 yrs. old on family road trip.

First Real Time: Treasure Island, Nov. 26th 1996.

Remember exact date because they imploded the Sands right when we got there.

NYNY 1999.

The Venetian & Paris was in construction and very close to opening.

Going back for the second time in July and think I will stay at The Venetian.

I'm sure I will visit NYNY though. ;)

Stardust - way in the back, the motel section. It was all we needed at the time. Amazing what you need/want at 18 versus 55 :) You could even gamble at 18 back then. Not legally but no one ever asked.
