Sometimes it takes a long time to create a tradition. Well, it only took a few years for the Cosmopolitan to create a holiday tradition in Las Vegas. On Wednesday, Nov. 20, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will welcome the return of The Ice Rink for the upcoming holiday season.
Video Poker can be an important part of a Las Vegas vacation. There’s especially a good chance that you’ll play video poker if you enjoy hanging out at a casino bar and receiving complimentary drinks. It used to be that you could play video poker at any denomination at any speed and receive a “free” drink. That’s no longer the case at most Las Vegas casinos.
We recently looked at a variety of hotels on the Vegas Strip for different sized budgets. It’s fairly simple to divide hotels into different budget ranges on the Vegas Strip. The hotels are easily grouped into just a few price ranges.
One of the most famous casino brands in Las Vegas has added a new bar and entertainment space as well as hotel rooms. Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas has quietly been upgrading the property. They recently opened Whiskey Licker Up Saloon. Earlier this year, they opened the 81 room Hotel Apache.
Oyo Las Vegas is now open for business. The new hotel brand replaces the Hooters Hotel and Casino. For years, this property has been a relative bargain for its location next to the Tropicana and across the street from MGM Grand.
One of the great things about Las Vegas is the variety. There’s a place for anyone no matter their vacation budget. One group visiting Las Vegas might have a budget that affords them to eat, drink, and stay at a luxury resort. A family might have a smaller budget for their annual vacation. They might have less money to spend on hotel rooms and meals. That’s okay, there’s always an option for places to stay, things to do, and things to see in Las Vegas.
The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) just ended and my feet are killing me! I walked the expo floor more than usual and I can still feel it. The gaming conference and expo bring the casino and gaming industry together. Panels discuss casino operations while the expo hall is where casinos go shopping.
We’ve discussed how Las Vegas residencies have changed over time so we won’t get into it again. The new short term residencies seem to be as popular, if not more popular, than their long-term predecessors.
Westgate Las Vegas announced that due to continued overwhelmingly popular demand Barry Manilow’s residency will return in 2020. The Grammy, Tony, and Emmy award-winning singer-songwriter, arranger, producer, and musician is fresh off a successful Broadway run. Manilow: Las Vegas – The Hits Come Home will return to Sin City following an upcoming sold-out performance in London.
