Hotel

We stayed at the New York- New York hotel while in Vegas. There was Roller Coaster right outside Wayne and Laurie's window. (Laurie you never did get to ride it!)
The Statue of Liberty out front.
Another view
Chad in front of the Hotel (this was on the last morning....does he look tired or what??!!)
Chad and me in front of the hotel.
It was a great hotel to stay in...it had a Coyote Ugly bar (very good drinks!), Pretzel Shop (we never did that either Laurie), Starbucks, numerous gift shops, ESPN Zone restaurant, an Irish Pub which we did eat at, and many other restaurants. It was huge! Laurie and I got lost a few times trying to find our rooms (of course remember we are just a couple of hicks from SD). Crystal and Jim left on Tuesday while Chad and Wayne were touring the Hoover Dam and I think they were a little apprehensive about leaving Laurie and me on our own.
Overall, it was a great hotel to stay in. We may go back again so does anybody else have any other hotel suggestions for us?

When we go to Vegas, several times a year, we drive in (and my friend would always rent a car) so we'd always have an automobile. Having a car makes it easier to stay off the strip. We've come to love The Orleans. Its got EVERYTHING. Lots of restaurants & shops. Gambling and drinks. It has a GREAT buffet. It has a 70 LANE bowling alley and an 18 screen movie theatre. Not to mention its own sports arena! Last time Mister & I were there alone we took in a hockey game. Walked 5 minutes from our room to the arena & had a great time!

I must say that I loved the photo.
Glad that you had a great time.
When we go to SD to visit my mom it is Gregory. A small town not to far from the NE border.

Thanks for sharing so many pictures of your holiday! We've never been so I can't offer any opinion about hotels. I'm glad you had fun - and it sounds like you left some things to do next time, which is always good.
