For visitors wanting to be in the center of the magic and excitement on the Las Vegas Strip, the Flamingo is a wonderful option. It's located near the always busy Flamingo Road/Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The north entrance of the resort is also connected to The Linq, a retail, dining and entertainment district that boasts a giant observation wheel called the High Roller. Plus, when compared to many of the elite hotels in the area, the rooms here offer comfort and luxury at more affordable prices.Situated in the heart of paradise, the laid-back Flamingo is also themed for paradise. In fact, it's always five o'clock in the Margaritaville Casino. Inspired by singer Jimmy Buffett's island-escapism lyrics, the resort constructed a 15,000-square-foot casino at the front of the property that opens right onto Las Vegas Boulevard. The décor features palm trees and tropical colors. Bikini-clad babes serve cocktails, while flair bartenders keep tabs on the shack-style 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar.  Margaritaville Casino is complemented by the multilevel, Caribbean-themed Margaritaville restaurant, which boasts two patios overlooking the Strip and a huge retail store. Festival-like sights and sounds are all around. Parrot Heads can dine in a wooden boat or on its bow. Not only is the place buzzing with Buffett's hits, but there are stilt walkers who craft balloon hats and waitresses who slide down from the top of the three-story Volcano Bar and land in a 300-gallon blender of margarita mix.The party vibe can also be found in the Flamingo Showroom. The family musical duo Donny and Marie Osmond host a nightly extravaganza presenting their greatest hits. (Note: Fans can view costumes from their TV stints on "Dancing with the Stars" and Donny's mirrored disco ball trophy in exhibit cases near the lobby.) Olivia Newton-John is also appearing in "Summer Nights," a residency that runs on select dates until Jan. 3, 2015. You can catch the celebrity impersonators of "Legends in Concert" in the afternoons. In the late evening hours at the X Showroom, men will get all hot and bothered by the beautiful dancers in "X Burlesque" -- while women can learn the secrets to the cast's sexy moves at XBU - X Burlesque University.Another major attraction at the Flamingo is the Wildlife Habitat. Its impeccably manicured grounds are home to pink Chilean flamingos, wood ducks, koi, turtles and other fascinating creatures -- all of which coexist peacefully together. If you are captivated by the playful critters, you may want to have a meal -- breakfast, lunch, dinner or weekend brunch -- in the Paradise Garden Buffet, which overlooks the habitat.Amid the 15 acres of lush greenery lie the resort's spectacular pools. The main pools are interconnected and feature lagoon areas, a seasonal waterslide, a meandering river and cascading waterfalls. For a trendy dayclub experience, visitors will want to check out the Go Pool (open during summer only), where a DJ pumps up the volume for guests reveling in chaise lounges, daybeds and VIP cabanas.In the vicinity, near the enchanting garden and gazebo wedding chapels, a plaque marks the site of the original hotel (erected in 1946 and knocked down in 1993). It also pays tribute to the Flamingo's infamous founder, Bugsy Siegel. This resort is one of the few left in Las Vegas with links to the past. Be sure to behold its pulsating pink and orange neon façade, another rarity in this day and age.When you get hungry, you'll find plenty of places for a relaxing, casual meal -- from the Tropical Breeze Café to the food court. Hamada of Japan serves up an authentic Japanese dining experience, complete with teppan demonstration cooking and a sushi bar. Featuring a black interior with pink accents, the Center Cut Steakhouse perfectly cooks organic steaks, Kobe burgers and rack of lamb. And Carlos'n Charlie's restaurant and bar is known for great food and overflowing spirits -- which often lead to impromptu dancing on the tables and chairs. The restaurant has an expansive indoor dining room and an outdoor patio.In contrast to the resort's easy-going vibe, the action in the casino is always fast-paced. You'll discover a party pit, with female dealers manning pink felt-covered blackjack tables, by the open-air entrance near Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon. A sexy pole dancer entertains from a small cage suspended above the gaming floor. A friendly poker room is tucked next to the lobby, and the race & sports book makes sure all the games are right in your face.Named for the legendary mobster, players can grab a drink in the casino at Bugsy's Bar.There is a wide range of rooms available at the Flamingo. The Go rooms and the recently renovated FAB rooms both have stylish and funky interior design elements as well as flat-screen TVs and other modern amenities. Pets (dogs weighing less than 50 pounds) are welcome in the specially designated PetStay section of the hotel, which contains a dog relief area.Pamper yourself at The Spa. Or if you'd prefer to get out and about, transportation is easy. There's a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so you'll have access to several other resorts along the Strip.-- By Renée LiButti

With a refreshingly modern Spanish theme, Sunset Station is ideal if you're looking for accommodations in Henderson, a suburban area about 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. This resort, which primarily caters to locals, is also an affordable, almost boutique-style hotel for leisure, family and business travelers.Conveniently located off the I-515/U.S. 95 at the corner of Sunset Road and Marks Street, Sunset Station is in close proximity to the Galleria at Sunset mall and countless attractions like golf courses and the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. It makes for a good base when exploring Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as well. But if you arrive and don't leave Sunset Station during your stay, you'll still experience exciting nightlife, fine dining, unique entertainment and numerous recreational pursuits that make for a truly wonderful vacation.Indeed, there's never be a dull moment here, thanks to live concerts held in Club Madrid, a state-of-the-art lounge that seats 500 people, or the outdoor Sunset Amphitheater. Sunset Station also boasts a 13-screen cinema with an IMAX theater and the stylish, state-of-the-art Strike Zone Bowling Center. Boasting 72 lanes and featuring cosmic bowling at night, the facility also houses the Kingpin Lounge (where you can play pool), a snack bar and pro shop.Unrivalled gastronomy is at Sunset Station, as the resort offers multiple restaurants along with the Feast Buffet and a food court. The Sonoma Cellar Steakhouse is known for both its aged, prime cuts of beef and its modern California cuisine. At Pasta Cucina, you can enjoy old-style Italian classics in a spectacular garden setting. For a casual meal at any time of day, there's the Grand Café. It's easy to find -- just look for the restored Orenstein & Koppel #791 locomotive. And for a fun dining experience with a variety of margaritas, you can't go wrong at Cabo Mexican Restaurant. Plus, guests can indulge in fresh seafood at the hip Oyster Bar.The hotel's artfully designed center bar, called the Gaudi Bar, has a light and airy space with a laid-back vibe. Surrounded by stained glass in interesting curves, you'll feel like you've been transported to one of famed architect Antoni Gaudí's buildings in Spain. There are plenty of other places to sip on cocktails and converse at Sunset Station -- including the Martini Bar, Rosalita's Cantina, the Seville Bar and the Bullfighter's Bar.Visitors are sure to be enticed by the casino. In addition to more than 2,400 slot and video poker machines, you'll find nearly 40 different table games, a bingo hall, a keno lounge, a nonsmoking poker room and a 300-seat race and sports book.At Sunset Station, the comfortable, spacious rooms and suites have everything needed for relaxation or work. All accommodations come with cable TVs, in-room movies, hair dryers and built-in data ports.There are other conveniences that are great for both vacation and corporate travelers as well -- like the enchanting pool with a hot tub and cabanas, a business center, a gift shop and a fully equipped fitness center. Plus, parents can take a break, thanks to Kids Quest, a safe, professionally supervised facility for children with indoor play areas, interactive games, quiet zones and a variety of activities.With all of this to offer as well as warm service and a wonderful price, you can't do any better than Sunset Station.-- By Renée LiButti

Calling all lovers of the Empire City! New York-New York, which is located near the southern end of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, is the perfect place to stay if you enjoy Big Apple dreamin'. Reserving a room puts you right in the heart of all the action at one of Sin City's busiest four corners.The sprawling resort is best known for its New York City theme. You'll discover a half-size replica of the Statue of Liberty welcoming you to the hotel and can even stroll alongside a 300-foot-long re-creation of the Brooklyn Bridge. Crave the ethnic flavor of Chinatown and Little Italy? Yearn for the energy of Times Square? Fancy the amusement of Coney Island? They're all right here as well.The façade at New York-New York is based on Manhattan's skyline. Twelve renowned skyscrapers have been emulated at about one-third of their actual size. They house the resort's 2,024 comfortable rooms and suites. This means you can choose to stay in the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building or whatever other super tower you adore.As a nod to the Big Apple's vibrant pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods, the promenade in front of the hotel has been widened and transformed into an outdoor plaza. A stage is often tucked into one end of the Brooklyn Bridge where you'll find bands and other forms of live entertainment. In addition to patios at Starbucks and Nine Fine Irishmen, several shops -- like Stupidiotic, Swatch and I Love NYNY -- are accessible from entrances on Las Vegas Boulevard and from within New York-New York. The interactive attraction Hershey's Chocolate World is also here. It has an entrance with a towering Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar and an 18-foot Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Guests can taste new treats, personalize sweet gifts and create keepsake photos. The last elements of the promenade, Tom's Urban and Shake Shake, will debut in December 2014.MGM Resorts has also begun construction on an 8-acre dining and entertainment district called The Park in the street between New York-New York and Monte Carlo. The Park will not only house casual eateries and bars (including Bruxie, Sake Rok, Beer Garden, Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar, a Robert Mondavi Jr. wine experience and more), but it will also connect to a new 20,000-seat arena being developed in partnership with AEG. Elements of The Park will begin to appear at the end of 2014 and throughout 2015, with the arena scheduled to open in 2016.New York City is known for its entertainment scene -- and New York-New York has followed suit. Although far from Broadway, the Cirque du Soleil production of "Zumanity" is a powerful and provocative theatrical display. Unlike the troupe's typical avant-garde circus performances, this one will take you into an adults-only world where you'll have to leave your inhibitions behind.Just like the "city that never sleeps," New York-New York is home to an array of nightlife venues that keep going until the wee hours. You can experience a live version of the saloon that was featured in its own movie at Coyote Ugly. Nine Fine Irishmen, an authentic Irish pub imported directly from the Emerald Isle, has bragging rights to being the most congenial gathering spot. There's just no better place in Las Vegas to grab a pint of Guinness and soak up the "craic" (i.e., the Celtic word for fun and good conversation).Other spots in New York-New York also let the good times roll. Over at The Bar at Times Square, you can listen to a boisterous performance by dueling pianos.Like New York City, a bounty of culinary delights are located here. Cut into a succulent steak at Gallagher's Steakhouse, a New York City landmark since 1927. Gonzalez y Gonzalez offers south-of-the-border favorites in a rendition of another beloved NYC restaurant. Chin Chin Café serves Chinese food and sushi in a trendy atmosphere. For casual meals, you can always grab a bite at one of the Village Eateries, the 24-hour café America or, of course, Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs.In addition, the resort offers plenty of fun stuff for the young -- and young at heart. A Coney Island-themed emporium is filled with carnival and arcade games. This is also where you can hop on the nerve-wracking Big Apple Coaster that winds through the property's pseudo-skyline.Rounding out the amenities is a spacious casino, a well-equipped fitness center and a pool with cabanas and hot tubs. The Spa at New York-New York offers some quirky yet soothing treatments, such as the Environmental Escape (a super-charged skin cocktail) and the Traffic Stopper (a facial infused with vitamins and oxygen).Although far from the real Wall Street and Central Park, a visit to New York-New York is a singular sensation -- and one that puts you in the pulse of two of America's greatest cities.-- By Renée LiButti
