|Subject: Visiting Las Vegas|
My boyfriend has stayed at the Golden Nugget in the Freemont area. Liked the hotel. Spent most of his time on the strip, though. And, yes, it is a cab ride back and forth.
The Sahara is at one end of the strip and offers really low rates Sunday-Fridays. It is way at the end of the strip, however. I also stayed at the Paris and though the room was ok, service left a lot to be desired and I would not return there.
All hotels offer non-smoking rooms though you have to cross the casinos on almost all which are quite smoke filled.
Have fun! Lidia
