USBC 2009 Las Vegas Question
« on: February 11, 2008, 02:16:22 AM »
(I know this is more than a year away.)

With the tournament being at the Cashman Center on the north end of the strip, where would you who are going usually stay: on/off the strip, etc...?

I figure I'd stay on somehwere and most places will have a shuttle service. I might try the Gold Coast since they have a bowling alley inside, too.

Downtown is much closer and would be cheaper cab ride to cashman, you could even take the bus to cashman from downtown if you only had a few double totes. The golden nugget is a nice place, otherwise i would stay somewhere on the strip and try not to get gouged for food daily.

Staying on the strip?!?  Bah, don't you guy have relatives living in Vegas where you can stay and eat for free (or in our case we buy the groceries for the week, and a nice dinner out one night)? LOL

Or is just me?

I live in henderson i dont think the wife would like it too much to invite you guys over to stay haha  I have met about 5-6 people from here and they were very friendly like agroves and srkegler, we all had a great dinner one night BSing.

Anywhere downtown would be fine to stay. There are about 8-10 casinos down there that are ok to stay in. If you want more towards the strip, Gold Coast isn't to bad. Orleans, Rio, Riviera.. I wouldn't stay at the Sahara, heard many horror stories as of late from there... Then again we are talking a full year away! I would let everyone come crash with me, but..... I don't have enough room, sorry folks

I'm going to stay at the Wynn. It's only $500 a night, and I'm sure they will comp me with my $5 per hand blackjack. Do they have a $2 craps table there?

Sorry to gloat guys.....well not really, lol. But I will ask if they have any recommendations on where to stay next time we talk, might have some ideas off the strip a little that will be good bargains. I'll let everyone know what they say.

Like I said before if you are only interested in the bowling or have been to vegas many times then you will want to save some cash by staying either downtown in the old section or off strip.  But if you want to get the full Vegas experience then you will want to stay on the strip.  Unfortunatly I will have to bring the wife with me on this one.  She does not let me  go to Vegas without her for any reason.  I dont think it is that she is worried about other women but she wants to make sure we still own our house by the time I leave.
