    I only ate there.....Buca Dibeppo. We, years ago ,stayed at the Trop and at Ballys. Just walked across the street to see what Excalibur was all about. It reminds me of Medievil Times. I would think too many kids.
    We don't stay on the strip anymore now......used to like Ballys, Caesars......stayed at both(years ago).
    The Rio might be nice...can see Penn & Teller. The Palms is probably too young a crowd....lots of clubbers. I,m not up on the new ones. We used to at least visit a new casino, but they started opening so fast, we couldn't keep up. Last one new that we checked out was Red Rock....way off the strip, but beautiful.
    We stay where they comp us a suite and comp all of our food.....Boulder Station....not on the strip. We love it there and we win more than anywhere else.
    For us it was because it's the casino that's closest to where our daughter lives and it makes it easy to visit. I like the way we are treated, but maybe it's because we are old.
    Have a great time in Vegas! Where you stay can be only a bed and shower and you can visit all the casinos. We spend very little time in the room....unless we are both losing, then we order a movie.
    Can you tell Vegas is one of my favorite topics?

    Are you specifically looking to stay on the strip? If not, there are several good choices. Silverton, The M, South Point, Palms.

    If you are wanting to stay right on the strip then some good choices would be Aria, PH, Mandelay Bay, Luxor is an MGM property so it's usually nice. Harrahs is not too bad but isnt as good as it was.

    Like @moreluck said it's Medieval themed lots of younger crowd. Luxor has nice rooms and most (if you're not on the south side have a good view. They don't use elevator but inclinators.) (angled elevators)

    If you rent a car and go up to the Skywalk, it's only about 2.5hrs from strip to rim. If you go that route, you can always stop at Hoover, Lake Mead, and Lake Las Vegas. Makes for a nice day trip.

    2.5hr each way and you can gamble, eat, fish, throw someone over the dam, see a show, and have a great time all in less than 12hrs.

    All of the canyon is Navajo or another Res. Anyone can go to the canyon but Skywalk is pretty amazing and for a fellow Massshole to find something amazing, you know it will be good!

    I should note, the skywalk is also pricey but most touristy things are. If you want a better experience for about the same price, a helicopter tour is a helluva way to see the canyon. Have fun out there.

    P.S.I'm still needing to be rescued from my sister's wedding Saturday so I can catch the Pats game...lol
