Taxi fare from airport?

Plan to use taxi to get from airport to ARIA hotel - 2 people , 2 bags.

Anyone know approx. what the fare should be for this?

Also, read a bit about some cabs using the "long-haul" route to drive up the fare. Should I be concerned about this - and if so - how do I avoid it?

No, there is certainly no reason to be concerned about the "long haul". It's only the local Las Vegas cab drivers way of showing new visitors some of the sights. They are proud of their city and want everyone to see as much of it as possible before they deliver you to your hotel.

Be sure to show your appreciation with a big tip.

The fare should be about $17. If you dare....ask the driver to take Swensen -> Harmon.....to get to Aria

"Simply say, "Aria, please". Relax and enjoy your trip. It has always worked for me and many others."

So, how did you like the scenic ride through the tunnel? ;-)
