So you want to pay a visit to Viva Las Vegas. Get ready for best vacation of a lifetime. Before you pack your bags and board your plane, here are a few tips on Vegas hotels.
Bring a Credit Card.
Every hotel requires some kind of security deposit in case you get wild and crazy during your stay. This temporary payment holds a certain amount of money on your card until you checkout. If you chose to use a debit card, your bank can take several days to release these funds back to you. Bring a credit card instead. Not only is it safe because it doesn’t allow direct access to your bank account, but your deposit will be released instantly.
Everyone has a resort fee.
Let’s get real. Every big hotel offers a daily resort fee package to its guests. Although they may vary in pricing (depending on the property), they all include the basics: gym, parking, water and WIFI. The Golden Nugget offers a $25 discounted package that includes WIFI for two devices, in-room bottled water, parking, printed boarding passes, daily newspaper, downtown coupons, access to the workout facility in the Spa and discounted tickets to headliner Gordie Brown. This daily price is almost half off the amenities included!
Parking isn’t always free.
As of June 2016, several strip hotels have started charging a daily fee to use their parking garages. Like most hotels in Las Vegas, parking is a hot commodity. There are visitors coming just to gamble, just to eat or even just to explore. With thousands of guests visiting Las Vegas hotels daily, parking is a big deal. Several downtown Las Vegas hotels, like the Golden Nugget, do reserve parking for their hotel guests.
While most people envision gambling when they think of Las Vegas, many family-friendly things are available in the city that you may not have considered. You can easily entertain your entire family with these unique visitor attraction ideas.
Get Back to Nature
There are many sightseeing tours to partake in while you are in Las Vegas. First is the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. A gorgeous and jaw-dropping view of the canyon awaits you. For your convenience, both hiking and driving tours are available.
Cool off at the Mob Museum
After spending the day in the desert, you can come back to the city and visit the Mob Museum. This museum focuses not only on the Mafia but also on the history of Las Vegas and how it came to be a city. The award-winning exhibits will keep you entertained for hours.
Wet and Wild
When you are ready to dip into the pool and relax after a long day, many options of hotel pools available are open to the public even if you are not a guest at that particular establishment. Each hotel has a uniquely themed pool area whether it be a beachfront design or filled with exotic creatures, you are sure to find the best pool downtown Las Vegas has to offer.
If you’re only in town for a short amount of time and want to have some fun in your hotel, The Golden Nugget offers gaming lessons for those who want to learn how to play like a professional! The most important thing to remember while you are visiting is just to have fun. Because there are so many fun things to do in the city, you will want to come back year after year.
