... to the Luxor and to LAX the nightclub. We were on to guest list so got in quickly - even though the bouncer didn't like the contents of my bag, looking at my lip balm, smelling my hand sanitiser and making me throw away my mints. Inside the ladies in the group could drink free vodka drinks till 12 so we took advantage of this and then danced the night away. Eventually tiredness set in and we shared taxis back to the ...
... hitched. Alec was best man and Mia Maid of honour. Loz was also the flower girl. Lol they did have the option of hiring a flower girl but Loz volunteered her services as she had never been flower girl before. She did a fantastic job with her step tap motion and wonderful petal flicking. We think she had been practising. Elvis walked Michelle down the isle and Tom looked like the happiest man alive with a grin from ear to ear. I wasn't allowed to ...
... looked at all of Caesar's Palace. I love all the statue's there.
It was late by the time we got back to the hotel so we went back to the room to get out and be early with being ready so we could have time to drink and eat. As I am sick again and my nose was continually, i decided to just do my own make up and not be embarrassed when i kept blowing my nose on her. The girls opted out on doing their make up professionally so we were all ready VERY early. ...
... The rock mountains had a white ring through them due to the hard calcium water when the water was high that year.
The tour took us to where the turbines are housed. Afterwards we went to the observation deck. The height of the dam is 726.4 feet. The view is just breathtaking.
We rode across the big bridge into Arizona took a picture and drove back.
After lunch we drove to Red Rock Canyon. Red Rock Canyon is like our Cades Cove. You can ...
After a short hour flight from Los Angeles we arrived in Las Vegas! We quickly grabbed our bags and headed for our hotel, Circus Circus. The first view of the strip was impressive even in the day! We checked into our room which had 2 big beds and a view of the strip. After a traditional American lunch, a huge burger and chips we headed out to explore. We walked the length of the strip going in and out of the amazing hotels with the most ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rumor Hotel Las Vegas
My husband and I stayed at this hotel on April 17-21, 2004.
After a long journey I called the hotel for its shuttle service. An hour went by so i called again. They said they would send someone out again. Another 30 minutes went by, another couple called, the hotel said they would send a shuttle. Once again nothing so i called again.
We arrived at 330 in the afternoon after a 6 hour drive and were told Check in is at 4pm, and not before, so we had to wait 30 minutes needing a bathroom and a change of clothes. There were two tubs of old icecream in our refrigerator and the tub and shower had hair and dead cockroaches in them. The jacuzzi was old and tired, and the jets hardly worked at all. The shower floor was severely cracked and was covered with a piece of rubber.Our credit card was debited $400USD as security on the room, and then on check out we paid again for the stay. Our deposit was not returned. After calling the "hotel guest manager" whos name was Melanie or Melissa, who was extremely rude,I was told that this is standard practice in the US and "foreigners" should be aware of US practices. This $400 will take 10 days to come back into my account.
OK all around
We stayed at the St. Tropez in April 2002 while traveling with our two kids to our nephew's wedding. We wanted a place where we could relax away from the gaming scene, which was off the strip and had a few comfortable amenities. The St. Tropez was just fine. Even the sleeper sofa was fairly comfortable. The only drawback was the pool, which was unheated and a bit chilly in April. But there was plenty of parking, clean landscaped grounds and a comfortable enough room. It isn't The Ritz, but it's fine for families and business travelers.
Avoiding the roaches
This place obviously needed some updating and remodelling. The A/C was passable, but all wall units running 24 hrs a day. There were roaches in the bathroom, albeit already dead from earlier spraying.
On the positive - the shuttle was very convenient - never needed a cab when going back/forth to the airport nor out at night (though on your own for the return). The breakfast was free and about the quality of a Marriott breakfast buffet.
Overall - it was average and typical for an off the strip hotel. If you want better quality at similar prices - see The Orleans. But its on the other side of the strip and further from the airport.
Where else can you get a suite with a hot tub and VCR for under $100 per night? I don't like staying in the bigger hotels because it takes so long getting in and out. It's also usually uneventful to spend time in one's room. At St Tropez, I check in, no bell hops. My suite or one bedroom has a refrigerator, a VCR, and a hot tub. I step outside to the pool and another hot tub under some tall palm trees. My private spa includes setting up some candles and inscense, with some aromatherapy bath products and soaking with some classical music playing from the hotel's clock radio. There are also menus for food delivery, though it would be nice if the hotel could add a microwave. There is a hotel shuttle to the MGM and taxis can be hailed across the street from the Hard Rock. I used to like the country club atmosphere of the demised Desert Inn. I guess that's why I like St. Tropez so much. I actually leave Vegas feeling relaxed!
We wanted somewhere quiet in Vegas to crash out for 2 days after 2 weeks travelling. Found a really cheap rate on the internet for the St Tropez which made us wonder what we would get for the money! It turned out to be really lovely, the room was great (huge) breakfast (loads of it) and really friendly staff, with fresh baked cookies on the counter every day. The pool area was wonderfull, just what we wanted with plenty of space to spread out. They have a lot of American aircrew staying there. Just across the road (which is pretty busy all the time) is the Hard Rock Hotel, great for browsing around. The hotel was due for re-modelling and boards were up in the reception area showing how it would look with the new wallcoverings etc. Should look better the ever, can't wait to go back again and again!
Awesome room for the money
3/2002 My husband wasn't happy I booked us to stay at a non-gaming hotel. But, after seeing the room, jacuzzi tub, king size bed and wet bar he changed his tune real quick. He liked getting away from the hustle and bustle of the strip. The Hard Rock is just across the street and there is a resturant and other places within walking distance. The continental breakfast was a great way to start the morning. It was nice to have a separate room so we could invite friends over for a drink or just conversation. At the time the air conditioning wasn't working the greatest, we were offered another room, but chose not to because we were settled in, so they took $10. a night off our bill. We plan to return to Vegas next March and stay here again.
Cock Roach Hotel!!
This is a hotel to AVOID! At first arival we found the carpet dirty, Air conditioner leaking water down the wall onto an electrical socket and a dead cockroach in the bathroom. After returning from gambling we found 3 more roaches, in bath tub by bed and in the bathroom. We raised hell and they got a new room for us the next day AFTER 2 pm! (The town was full up by Saturday so we were stuck) They promised us a 10 dollar discount for our trouble which they forgot about when we checked out.
AVOID THIS ROACH INFESTED HOLE AT ALL COSTS!
