Index: 30 is going to happen anyway, best do it in Vegas - Nov/Dec 2018

So, I've finally started a trip report on here, the last 2 attempts made it into Word and were given up on. So I'm starting as I mean to go on.

Full details in the Pre-Trip but in short after trying to arrange a big west coast trip and it being pushed back a few times, we booked flights to Vegas to commiserate me turning 30 at the end of November, mainly as seeing the Grand Canyon is a big bucket list entry for me


Index:

(I plan to come up with some better titles as I go)

Pre-Trippy

Day 0 - Pre-travel day, Night at Jury's Inn Croydon
Day 1 - Gatwick-> Vegas, Hilton Tropicana
Day 2 - Vegas Day
Day 3 - Driving - Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon
Day 4 - Full GC day
Day 5 - Driving - Slot Canyon, Horseshoe bend, Bally's
Day 6 - Vegas Day
Day 7 - Vegas Day
Day 8 - Last Day

Happy reading and any tips much appreciated

Hi Fiona

I see you were at Ballys a few months ago, how did you find it? Prices are coming up good for our trip in June so would like an honest view - looks like it is well situated on the strip?

Thanks

It was really good, we got upgraded to an executive suite because of a problem with check in, so that might sway my view a bit. We had a strip view which was side-on so we could see the Eiffel tower and if you really tried then the bellagio fountains
The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and we didn't have the smokey smell a lot of people seem to report
You also get $8 (I think) per day breakfast credit for the coffee bar
The hotel is a bit of a maze though with it being linked to Paris, and the parking entrance is difficult to find so make sure you work that out ahead of time rather than panicking and doing 4 laps of the block like I did 😖

Location is perfect, we stayed at the Tropicana earlier in the trip and found Bally's to be much better, right by Linq, bellagio etc, we used the monorail too from there to get to stratosphere and MGM grand for cirque

We have stayed at Ballys before... regular room...and loved it. Great location on the strip and now that the rooms are renovated include a coffee maker and fridge which you dont normally get in Vegas. There are some good videos on you tube. We are staying there again end of May.
