Bring your furry best friend with you on vacation!

DOGS ALLOWED

Say goodbye to the days of extremely sad puppy eyes looking back at you as you leave for Las Vegas. Times have changed! Several strip hotels are now Fido-friendly. That’s right, your dreams have come true. You can bring your fur baby on vacation with you. Individual resorts may have strict rules and additional room charges, but the upside is that you won’t have to leave your dog alone in a scary, noisy kennel anymore. Instead of whimpering all night long, your best friend will feel safe sleeping soundly next to you in bed.

To all those who are allergic to our furry friends, there is no need to panic. Most resorts have specially designated rooms that are only for dogs (and their owners). You can be confident knowing that you won’t be sneezing through your entire vacation.

Here is a list of these awesome dog-friendly resorts:

Delano
Vdara
Bellagio
Venetian
Paris
Bally’s
Rio
Harrah’s
Flamingo
Caesars Palace

Chef Gordon Ramsay at Hell's Kitchen at Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Now you can experience Hell’s Kitchen first hand.

FROM TV TO REALITY

If you are a fan of Chef Gordon Ramsay’s food competition TV show, Hell’s Kitchen, you are about to be one very happy camper. Next time you are in Las Vegas, head to Caesars Palace and dine at Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen restaurant. That’s right, it’s a physical restaurant! Now you can actually taste the perfection of his infamous Beef Wellington, instead of just watching your TV screen and drooling all over your sofa. Guests will feel as if they are actually dining on the studio set. Rumor has it that it fills up extremely quick, so we recommend you make reservations sooner rather than later. If dinner is all booked, lunch offers most of the same dishes. If you are eager to sample as much as possible, try the HK Express Three-Course Lunch or HK Signature Prix Fixe Dinner Menus. Should you be super lucky, you may hear that familiar British voice berating the kitchen as you relish your spoonful of decadent sticky toffee pudding.

Farewell to Monte Carlo

By: Staff

FAREWELL TO MONTE CARLO

If you haven’t already heard, Monte Carlo, as we know and love it, are closing their doors. Okay, we are being a tad melodramatic. A more accurate description is that it’s being rebranded. In April 2018, Monte Carlo will transition to Park MGM. Along with a change of name this resort will have all new rooms, casino, restaurants, theater, park, and overall look. Those of us who love Las Vegas, we are always eager explore a new hotel and casino. However, today could be your last chance to take advantage of Monte Carlo’s low room rates. The Monte Carlo sales are quickly disappearing.
