Subject: Re: Las Vegas feedback
Debra,

In my prior life, our company often used Las Vegas vacations as awards for performance. We usually got the best price through Funjet Vacations and they offered a range of hotels.

I also tried many different hotels, since I went to conventions there. I have stayed at the Luxor. If you daughter likes kitsch, then she may like it. I thought it was a slightly newer Circus Circus (the parent company). For me the only thing interesting was the elevator, which goes sideways. I like the Rio and the Venetian and people in our company always liked the Desert Inn. I also like the sister hotel to Treasure Island (I am sorry, I can't remember the name; they have the white tigers in the lobby and some of the best poker in Las Vegas; if you call Treasure Island they will tell you). The last time I was there the Mandalay seemed to have very good rates (and decent restaurants). The Bellagio is a very nice hotel, which is saying a lot in Las Vegas, but it is expensive. I can't help you with packages, except to say that your daughter should not miss Cirque du Soleil (I think they are at Treasure Island and the Bellagio). Caesar's Palace/Forum has a number of good restaurants.
