Subject: Re: Las Vegas
Hi Sara and fellow Ziners

Las Vegas is my second favorite place to be, after being on a cruise ship!! We always stay at the Orleans Hotel which is off the Strip (Las Vegas Blvd.) but has a complimentary shuttle to the strip throughout the day and evening. It is a beautiful hotel, has large rooms with a sitting area,has delicious yet reasonable restaurants, and the price is right. (P.S. Try Big Al's Oyster Bar for fabulous seafood pasta dishes, and, according to my husband who eats them, great oysters.) We are booked for mid-February, and the weeknight (ie Mon. through Thursday) rate is $49 USD per night.The weekend rate was quoted at $99 one night and $89 for the other two nights because it is President's Day weekend. I personally would not recommend you stay down on Fremont Street as it is pretty seedy compared to the hotels on the strip. You might like to see the Fremont pedestrian area, but I wouldn't make that my headquarters. Enjoy!! Helen Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
