Tropicana in Anaheim has been returned recently and is just across the road from the entrance to Disney.

If you don't want to stay on the strip we have just checked out of the Carriage House on E Harmon. There is a pool but no casino and no resort fees. We were in king Suite at a cost of $99 per night, felt very safe and across the road to the entrance to Miracle Mile Shops. Fantastic location. If you get a chance any of the Cirque de Soleil shows are amazing. Have also done Sundance helicopter tour into the canyon and also a bus for the Skywalk. We drove to Red Rock Canyon yesterday.

We are planning to go for my 50th next July. Tropicana Hotel looks fantastic. I agree that the Signature Suites in Vegas are great. Stayed there twice now. Never thought to check out prices with airb&b though. Great tip.

Cheap
Luxor
Tropicana
Excalibur

Mid
MGM
park MGM
Planet Hollywood
New York New York

Top
Bellagio
Ceaders
Mirage

Our fave hotels are Wynn and Encore but I would not recommend for first times
Rd as its too far down the strip.
I would add Venetian to the top list, along with Vdara. To your middle would add Ballys. Just stayed in the newer remodeled rooms and they were lovely. Loved the location as well. We are staying at Caesars Palace in December and seriously thinking of cancelling and doing half and half at Ballys we liked it so much.

Ive never achieved a better price for the Signature through Airbnb. Usually its been cheapest through other websites

Karen honestly could not fault it. We had the newer remodeled room which had beautiful big glass shower and lots of bathroom cabinet space. New carpet, sofa and armchair, then the usual desk, then another drawer unit. Sheets were spotless and brilliant white. Lovely clean room. Did kiosk check in which took maybe 4 mins and got into our room at 11.00am. Staff were helpful and our lovely cleaning lady kept asking if we wanted more towels, bathroom products and if everything was ok. There are several exits to Ballys so depending on which way up the strip we were going used different exits, or cut through Paris and out that way to stay cool. It was hot..very hot Stage door bar was out of one exit which was a bit fatal for us as vodka was $9.99 a liter, and they had $1 beers and hot dogs for $2. Was brilliant having the fridge as we stocked up with water etc and pop and it was lovely and cold. You can walk up a back road and end up at Linq which we liked as it saved all the crowds, elevators on the strip. The newer rooms dont have much of a view if that is of a concern to you. Any questions just ask.

Hi Jo I know the area intimately after staying down the road at Tuscany last month! We cut through Ballys once or twice a day (usually more). What would you suggest I request - if anything - room wise? It sounds great and frankly was a great price ;-)

If you are not bothered about a view which we were not, I would request a resort tower room as they are remodeled. Jubilee are not. We were on floor 24 and had a side view of Linq. Some I gather have roof tops, guess we were lucky. So ask for a high floor Karen. We actually paid $29 for our weeknight room... and more for the weekend of course, this past week or so. Some of our December nights are $25
I was very impressed and would have gladly paid more.
