If you have a ceasars rewards, check online once in a while, randomly we got five free nights (you have to pay the resort fee) also note they put us in the worst room behind the bank of elevators, so we had to pay $50 for an upgrade to get a decent room.
Cosmpolitan resort has their new little food court type thing you can grab fried chicken (Hattie B's/donut, etc. might save a bit of money there over a sit down restaurant. Also hidden pizza at Cosmopolitan, you could grab a slice instead of a sit down meal.
If you sit at the video poker at the chandelier bar, the bar tender told us you have to do a minimum one dollar a hand bet to get the free drink, and you go through the money pretty fast, so probably not worth it to get a free drink.
The new Eataly at the Park MGM is pretty cool, but very expensive. You can pick out a raw steak for them to cook, or fish, they just add a fee to the amount of the meat. Only issue is then you have to look for a free table, but you just paid a lot for you meal, now you are wandering around, weird.
A nice dinner out at Mon Ami Gabi, at Paris>? I think, will probably come to 200$ usd, depending on drinks. You will need a reservation though at dinner time there was a lineup.
The Luxor has a good mexican restaurant, diablo's Cantina, I think it used to be at Park MGM now it's moved there.
The Fantasy show at Luxor has atleast half the crowd of women, which is cool. The pictues always show approx 10-12 dancers, but there were only 8 that night, and they seem to take forever inbetween sets so you will have to listen to host (good singer) and comedian (great comic) for ridiculous amounts of time-especially since you came to see a topless review not a singing comedy show?! weird.
Zumanity was definately worth it, especially if you can get a discount (I used my points from myvegas game on Vegas to get 50% off tickets.
Uber seems to be cheaper than cabs, but if you are taking a cab, try to pay with cash, because they have some extra fee for paying with credit card.
If you love coffee, try to find a way to make it in your room, like bring a mini keurig or something, the lines are sometimes 12-20 people in the mornings at the hotels (starbucks or similiar) and it ended up costing 11CND for two coffees everyday, and it really adds up.
Only I think three hotels do Food and Beverage min for daybeds at the pools (I think MGM< Cosmo, and one other) I'd say it's worth it, rather then paying for a daybed at Planet Hollywood, and just getting a bed (weird their beds are like really high off the ground), you can get Cosmpolitan food/beverage and drink /eat lunch, etc, and really relax, it's a bit pricey but better then a bed with nothing else included. The pool at Planet Hollywood felt like it had an ice berg floating in it at end of April, not sure how long it will take to heat up to a reasonable temperature. The bathrooms at the Planet Hollywood pool look like an old Sears bathroom. The pool at Park MGM seemed to have a lot of shade/sun seats for free.
There are Sprinkles cupcake vending machines at the airport on the way out if your plane serves awful food. The lineups for security at the airport were OUT Of control! Get there way before you think you should.
Even though I'm afraid of heights the Linq High Roller Wheel wasn't that bad. Try to find a discount, I think through your rewards program you can get a discount.
The Yardhouse has great happy hour half priced appetizers, in Linq mall.
If you can somehow get to Total Wines and more before you go to your hotel, they have an excellent selection and price.
Luke's Lobster outside the fashion mall is pricey but if you LOVE lobster and want to treat yourself, it's awsome, we had the roll and the bisque and was 10/10.
Shake Shack at NY NY was always excellent everytime we went.
Keep in mind we are from canada
, so of course we find things pricey when the exchange rate screws us. Even if you go to a takeout counter in Vegas the cash machine will ask for a tip.
