Question in black type - Answer from our Readers in blue type  

#1.  If you could stay one week anywhere in Las Vegas for free, but you could not leave that hotel/casino, what hotel/casino would you stay at and Why?  

*  My choice would be Caesar's. It can compete with all of the new "mega-resorts". I just love the atmosphere and history of the place. Also, it has everything you need in a resort: great restaurants, large and very nice casino area, mall area for shopping, etc.  Patty Kiser

*  I would stay at the new Aladdin because I want to see it and experience the 5 star treatment. The central location is great if you had a high room with a view, and the shopping sounds wonderful.  John Murphy

*  Our family (Mother-in-law, Father-in-law, Brother-in-law and his wife, my husband and myself) all visit Vegas together at least once a year for the past seven years. We love it! Now, getting to your question. Our entire family would agree that the best place to stay in Vegas for "top-of-the-line everything" is The Golden Nugget!!!! We have spent our last two visits there and truly felt no need to leave ~~~~ The hotel is very beautiful and accommodating, the gambling is good from craps to various slot machines and the FOOD is great!!! We all commented on the fact that there was really no reason to leave at all. Maybe to cross the street to visit Binions! That's about it! We appreciate the fact that unlike the casinos on the strip, we don't have to walk forever to get to a casino or our room, or get lost along the way because of the size! My husband is unable to do the walking anymore due to a hip condition (he's only 53 years old so we're still the younger ones who just enjoy everything). My in-laws are in their 80's, so they go where we go!!! My Mother-in-law, however, loves her slots !!! But then so do I ($1). Our husbands play craps. We have to laugh at the way that Caesars escorts you into their casino from the front walkway, and unless you take the tram, you walk out into their parking lot! The Excalibur does not cater to the slot people at all! Imperial Palace is just getting too old - It's so dark and kind of dreary! The MGM is so huge and with all of the people, we were forever getting lost and the rooms were so far from the casino! We've stayed at all I've mentioned except Caesars. We are planning a return trip this December. I do hope this has helped you to some degree! Charlotte Zwiener

*  My choice would be Paris! I am one of fourteen children and grew up very poor in West Virginia. I've been on this earth for 35 years and have always dreamed of going to Paris. I have no idea why, only that it is a place that's been in my heart as long as I can remember and after going to Las Vegas last year to the Sema Auto Show Convention with my husband I saw the Paris Casino & Hotel and fell in love with it. I found it to be the most romantic and beautiful place I've ever seen and hope to go again soon.    Virgie Whisnant/Lenoir NC

*  I would love to stay at the Mirage. I love to play Poker and the machines. I have never seen Siegfried and Roy because the ticket prices are out of sight, but I would love to see them.  Helene Franklin

*  Without a doubt I would stay at Sams Town. Love the country music, the food can't be beat, great Bingo, bowling for fun, lots of great gambling incentives for slot play, and a beautiful tree area to just sit and relax. Paul J. Foutz

*  I would stay at the Flamingo Hilton. The reasons are as follows: They have a great casino. They have many fine eating places including a buffet. They have shopping, fitness center, hair salon, and one of the nicest pool areas in the whole city. Rooms are reasonably priced and average. The other very important reason is that I have a slot club card there and I like to play at the same place to chalk up points.  Carol Simmons

*  I would stay at The Venetian. It's huge and has everything I'm looking for on a vacation. My husband would gamble and I'd enjoy the pool and shops. I like lots of space in my room and I hear the rooms there are very nice and also large.  Second choice would be Mirage. Stayed there in the past and it's a very comfortable setting. However, we'd want a suite.   Karen V Bujnoski 

*  I would select the Rio because the rooms are great and the place is always jumping. You can't fault the food either so that is my choice.   Joe Castronovo

*  I would stay at the Bellagio. Reason, it's quite beautiful and one could gamble, swim, eat, or rest with pleasure. Of course, if it were not free, I would choose another hotel as I would not have as much to gamble if I spent a lot on a hotel.  Terry Dyke

*  I would stay at the MGM Grand. We visited there while we were in Vegas and it was very enjoyable. Lots of things to do and a very friendly atmosphere. Judy Bauer

*  We would stay at Caesar's because although we have never stayed there, we have always liked visiting there and going along the walkway and seeing the animated statues and the shops. Fran Moore

*  Caesars palace has shopping excellent food, entertainment and gambling. Robert Bowden

Treasure Island.  Good atmosphere, Reasonably generous slots.  Could look out the window at the Pirate show Several good restaurants.  Joanne Kammer

*  I would stay at MGM....I always take my child and we could have a great time there.....The theme park and arcade, pools and rainforest cafe and great shows that she could go with us to. The friendly people make it a great place to stay!!!    Cathie Kroll

*  I would probably stay at the Bellagio, great Restaurants, ambiance, great pool area, and good location, at least I could look out at the Paris Hotel.  Marmel309

*  Bellagio best food in Vegas. There is a variety of entertainment, dining, large casino floor. It is the most beautiful place. I don't think I would ever get bored. The shopping is great and the casino is huge. It is truly an amazing place. The food is great and the view is just to pretty. the staff there are very accommodating.  Why, because it is a very accommodating place. The people are very friendly, they have many different kinds of restaurants and lounges so you never become bored with eating. machines, movie theaters, There is enough to do there to entertain me for a week. They also have a nice players club. It is completely self contained, great shows, great restaurants, great shopping, great pool area, nice rooms, large casino...what else could you ask for? It even has a huge sports bar.  It is very unique in architecture and atmosphere. I was there once but only for a short time. Everything one could possibly need from great food, great shopping, and great gaming is available. Because it is huge and they have plenty of restaurants and shopping. There is so much to do there. When you are out at the pool areas, it is just so tropical that you forget you are at a casino in Vegas. The restaurants are GREAT. and many to choose from. The casino is HUGE and spectacular with many different tables and machines. The shows in the lounges are fantastic and is definitely unique. The variety is luscious. The rooms are richly appointed. Unique is an accurate word. THANKS Mark A Reyes

*  I would probably stay at the Rio, because its an all-suite hotel with two great buffets and decent slots. It has a nice pool area. Also, the Rio has a night club (Club Rio) and a really nice bar which overlooks the whole city (Voodoo Lounge).  MMoore7841

*  I have stayed at the Imperial Palace and loved it. I would like to stay there again. Everyone there was so helpful and nice to us. There was four of us girls on the trip and none of us and ever been to Vegas and everyone was so helpful to us. I can't wait to go again.  Tannah

*  Four Seasons Hotel.  I can go to Mandalay Bay Casino if I'am on a winning streak, or I can just stay put at the Four Seasons (no hardship) if I'am on a losing streak! I really get 2 hotels in 1.  Shirley Callahan

*  The Venitian, because it is huge and there are so many things to do there, and lots of shops. I think I could spend an enjoyable week there. The Mandalay Bay would be my second choice.   Walter Cooper 

*  I would stay at MGM Grand because of it's size, variety of activities, shows, restaurants, and "Majestic Lion" slot machines. Plus the employees have always been so friendly and personable.  Lynn Low

*  Mandalay Bay:  Great Casino, Concerts inside and out, House of Blues, Restaurants, Swimming Pools, Beach, River etc...   Mark Cesena

*  Unlike, I suspect, most of your respondents, we would choose to stay in a suite at the Sahara. Why? The casino. We haven't found elsewhere the low minimum tables along with the friendliness. We can play for days without losing any significant money while meeting lots of friendly folks. The food isn't bad, entertainment okay, and we are comfortable there. Connie St. Pierre

*  Harrah's as we have always been treated great there and the gambling is the best along with great restaurants.  Kroeger Ins.

*  I would stay at Caesars where you could gamble shop, eat and have a great time.  Gmommy9

*  I would definitely pick the Monte Carlo. In fact, last year I was in Vegas for 5 days in June and it was so hot, I did not leave the Monte Carlo. It is a great place to stay, not a lot of kids and my slot host could not be better, along with everyone else on their staff. If you have never stayed there - try it!   Terri Murrow

*  If money was no object, and I couldn't leave for a week, Caesar's Palace is where I would stay. Lots of food and lounge choices, a great sports book, and shopping for my wife. If money was a factor in my decision, I would choose the Stardust. Before you laugh at my choice, consider 3 or 4 good restaurants, nice sports book, good casino, and it is not overly crowded. It's half the cost of Caesar's and a good value.  Thanks .  Benny Low

*  MGM Grand Hotel   Nancy Charette

*  Mandalay Bay.  It is the most inclusive self contained hotel in the city with the best atmosphere.   PBDesign1

*  I would stay at the Rio - they have everything you could want and the best food in Vegas.   Jack Arlen

*  I would stay at MGM Grand. there is a variety of entertainment, dining, large casino floor...and a spacious feeling.  Eddie A. Tinkel Jr.

*  I would stay at the Venetian. It is the most beautiful place. I don't think I would ever get bored. The shopping is great and the casino is huge. It is truly an amazing place. Patricia Williamson  Cleves OH

*  Harrah's, I love gambling there. the food is great and the view is just to pretty. the staff there are very accommodating. I just have to much fun when I'm there....Brenda

*  I would stay at the Gold Coast. Why, because it is a very accommodating place. The people are very friendly, they have many different kinds of restaurants and lounges so you never become bored with eating. They have bingo, a nice live keno lounge, machines, movie theaters, bowling alley and a lovely gift shop. There is enough to do there to entertain me for a week. They also have a nice players club.  Robin Rieger

*  I would stay at Venetian.   arizonabozo

*  I think I would pick the Mirage. It is completely self contained, great shows, great restaurants, great shopping, great pool area, nice rooms, large casino...what else could you ask for? It even has a huge sports bar, and tigers to boot!   Marge Sobjak

My hotel/casino of choice would be Caesar's Palace...It is very unique in architecture and atmosphere. I was there once but only for a short time. Everything one could possibly need from great food, great shopping,  and great gaming is available. Why go anywhere else?   Virginia Pace

*  I would stay at Caesars because it is huge and they have plenty of restaurants and shopping.   Pam Leach

*  I would stay at the Mandalay Bay resort & casino.  There is so much to do there. When you are out at the pool areas, it is just so tropical that you forget you are at a casino in Vegas. The restaurants are GREAT. and many to choose from. The casino is HUGE and spectacular with many different tables and machines. The shows in the lounges are fantastic and rival the New York club scene. The House of Blues is definitely unique. The variety is luscious. The rooms are richly appointed. Unique is an accurate word.  Thanks,  Joyce
