Ok, so I need to add a disclaimer about the BEST LAS VEGAS HOTEL AND CASINO..it is the best for the price. Summer and I went to Vegas on Sunday night and left Tuesday morning. We flew in on America West and took a taxi to our hotel, which was on the Las Vegas Strip; The Imperial Palace!
Ha, who would have thought…I have stayed at a few of the nice places in Las Vegas: The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, The Bellagio, The Wynn, THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay. The Rio…and they are all nice…definately have the BLING factor and are Hotel and casinos you don’t really need to leave…and still hit up some great clubs and restaurants.
If you are looking for a stealth mission to Vegas just for some gambling fun, no bling just betting? Then you need to stay at the Imperial Palace. We paid $39 a night for our room, which had a small TV and a deck. The room was nice because it was a cheap clean room that didn’t smell, so I would stay there again.
It is on the strip, so it is close to everything and the Monorail runs right through it. We were paying $9 for two people everytime you board…no matter how far you go. I think it cost like $40 for a 4 day Las Vegas mono-rail pass for unlimited rides.
There is a Subway on one side of you on the Strip and a Starbucks on the other side of you on the strip. I didn’t try any of the food at the IP but the Dealertainers were awesome.
The Black Jack Dealers dress up as famous artists and perform throughout the night(Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Elvis, Louis Armstrong, Gwen Stefani)…good $10 black jack tables..they paid well. The dealers remember your name and ENTERTAIN you while they are dealing…
After paying $15 bucks for a taxi to the airport, I found out that the Imperial Palace has a Las Vegas Airport Shuttle for $4 a person that runs every half an hour.
If you are looking for a budget trip to Las Vegas because you go all of the time and you are in the mood to lay low (so to speak), stay at the Imperial Palace…fun, good dealers, clean rooms, easy access to the monorail and anything BUT Bling. Have fun in VEGAS!
