Goin to vegas for my birthday with 3 or 4 of my boys, anybody know good hotels to stay that are relatively cheap and on the strip... Heard that taxis cost agrip and its better to be in walking distance to where its all at. Any tips or recommendations are appreciated. (I dont plan on kicking it in the room thatmuch so cheaper is better i guess)

you dont get the whole vegas experience without the right hotel..

i'd recommend THE Hotel @ Mandalay Bay or The Signature @ MGM...pretty frickin awesome, plus you get unlimited access to the hottest pool parties out!

make sure you also stop by club XS at the Encore! hottest spot in the city for '09

if this is your first time..dont half %+$ vegas... we stayed at a Venetian Suite first time we went..although we were barely in the room...the atmosphere andeverything was well worth it.. taxis are not so bad.. its worth it..if theres four of you split it...youd spent about 15 bucks going from one end of the stripto the other.. so its worth it...walking will tire you.. TAO, Jet, Tryst, Pure, Moon&Rain at the Palms... Rio buffet (seafood) Wynn Buffet... all good...when you go clubbing look for girls in line to let you wait with them..best believe you will not get in with 4 dudes or wait 3 hours to get in a club...justmake sure the ratio is 1-1..(3-2..2-1 preferred) hope that helps

I did this when I went a few weekends ago and honestly was the best decision I ever made. Granted your situation a bit different with like 4 of yall but thisis still a good deal. The buffet alone was 30 a person
and yes thebuffet was crack. and the outdoor pool complex was the *##+ too. everything about that hotel was poppin period

Why don't we create a Vegas Mega Thread? Tell the cabbie DO NOT TAKE THE TUNNEL when you go to your hotel. It will get them $10+ extra.

if you go to slick deals and hunt you will find all types of deals for every hotel out there. there is one particular site I came across withdeals to literally every hotel in vegas. I paid like 60 for a night at the MGM with all that sutff above.

as far as the VIP passes, there are promoters that will put you on the list all day as long as you have a chick. you can get in for like 15 bucks or so and bestraight. some cat just walked up to me trying to put us on the list. otherwise that deal above obviously got the passes on deck

don't fall in love with a stripper. if she says she likes you, she's just lying, she prolly don't even remember your name. i bet one of them willtell you they're just stripping to put them through school.

Im sorry sir, that is an inaccurate statement and also illegal per the Nevada Taxicab Authority. If cab drivers tell you that just say "mybrother/dad/uncle is a TA (Taxicab Authority Cop)" It puts the fear of god into them. Cabbies wont even risk pissing off anyone that knows of the dreaded"TA" Yes, Nevada has a state law enforcement agency dedicated to busting/harrassing/keeping tabs on the cabbies.

4 dudes in Vegas trying to club? I highly suggest to bring money to pay off the bouncers cause otherwise you guys are gonna wait forever in line. Or likesomeone else mentioned, find girls already in line and go in with them.

do take full advantage of mgm
do eat at all of the buffets breakfast, lunch, and dinner
do make sure you hit up the pool and daytime pool/club called wet republic. its was extremely poppin when i was out there
do buy liquor and pre party (if you can get some girls to chill at the hotel) b/c dranks was like 10 bucks in the club
do gamble even if you dont want to drop a lot of bread play the penny slots so you can smash the weak drinks. enough of them and they'll have you tipsy
i honestly cant think of many donts.

oh and i read that if you slide the lady at check in a 20 or something a lot of times they will upgrade your room heard that after the fact though

yea, cabs only pick up at hotels but you gotta walk 2 minutes at most to get to one.
