New York New York

It will be our 3rd time to Vegas , this time we are staying at New York New York- we have previously stayed at Aria which we absolutely loved and Bellagio, however this time we are taking our three children - 2 who are 18 and one who is 24. We are on a tighter budget as we are staying in LA first for 7 days then having last 3 days in Vegas , couldn't really stretch to staying at the Aria , what are people's experiences at New York New York

Thank you x

love it. great casino and reasonably priced food options. relatively small hotel/casino (by vegas standards) obviously temper your room expectations but for the $ its my favorite place

Have you considered staying at MGM or Signature?

The location is across from NYNY, and the pool areas are expansive- with your children, I suspect that is an option worth considering

Bon voyage!

Thank you Bismarck , we have been in there for couple of drinks previously but wasn't sure if rooms are ok etc

I know it won't be like the Aria but as long as it's clean etc I am sure the kids will love it!

Hi Adelaide we have already booked the hotel, hopefully it will be ok, the two girls have never been to Vegas before and I am sure they will love it! Just as long as we get them there I don't think they would mind where they stay!

I liked NYNY, its an okay, relaxed hotel and a bit smaller yea. Rooms are okay, lovely lobby but pool is smaller and sometimes in shade. So if you have kids who love to be by the pool than you may consider choosing another hotel.

in my opinion the best hotel is for sure MGM Grand, it has it all and its not so pricey.

No matter where you stay there will be those that will suggest you stay elsewhere. NYNY is a great hotel and the rooms will be clean and the service will be good unless the earth reverses its rotation.lol You're kids will love it. The area has a lot to do. Great restaurant called America. Very cool food court type area. Monte Carlo next door so you can hop the free tram to Bellagio easily. The pool will be fine for the kids,and if they've never been to Vegas before,I doubt they will care too much about where they stay at this point. I would love to see the look of amazement on their faces when they see the fountains,the Venetian,etc. What fun.

NYNY while not super fancy is a fun place with a great vibe and a unique array of food choices. Also one of my favorite casinos on the strip.

The only thing that's a bit of a letdown is the pool. It's rather small and due to it's placement doesn't get much sun. You also have the roller coaster screaming over head every 5 mins which can get a bit old.

The rooms are a bit smaller than you are probably used to, but they are very clean, and they are very comfortable. In my experience, the service was top notch...but I guess that varies sometimes.

Relax, Good Luck, & Enjoy!

First of all, having stayed at Aria and Bellagio, you may be a bit disappointed with the rooms at NYNY. However, all that aside, the rooms at NYNY are very clean and more than adequate. Since there are 5 of you, I am assuming you are getting 2 rooms or one of the larger rooms? Overall, the property is really great and a lot of fun. There is an arcade area for the kids, and you have easy access to Excalibur, which also has an arcade and a carnival-type game area. If your kids like chocolate, they may love the new Hershey's store.

PERFECT choice.

Yes everyone will suggest other places, in a moment I will too, but by choosing NY NY you will get a fun pool, the roller coaster flies over it and creates a fun atmosphere and assures you the kids will wear themselves out on that too. More importantly, the pool is not the size of a small city. You will be able to keep an eye on them.

They have a great game area kids love, good wifi in the rooms.

The food court and street-scenes of NY decor are all great family-friendly attributes.

The only possibly attractive alternative for someone who loved Aria in the past is the Vdara. The Aria's little step-sister. It is almost as cheap as NY NY and if you get even the slightest upgrade you'll get a Washer & Dryer and a full kitchen, quite nice with family in tow.

You'd have the same ultra modern sheik and rooms even larger than Aria with Aria's facilities so close you can throw a rock & hit em.
