The D Las Vegas is located on Third Street between the Four Queens and Neonopolis. It's a hip, party-oriented resort – one that reflects the energetic vibe of the revitalized downtown area.Its 638 rooms and suites boast contemporary décor and furnishings, flat-screen televisions, iPod docking stations, pillow-top mattresses and more. High-speed wired and wireless internet access are available so you can stay connected to the world while traveling.The D Las Vegas is home to the Longbar. You can mingle and share in the excitement of downtown with other visitors at the longest bar in Nevada. This sleek spot has a color scheme of black combined with striking red high-top chairs. Fifteen huge flat-screen monitors have been mounted side-by-side down the length of the bar. There's another vibrant new bar outside on Fremont Street -- the D Bar. Flair bartenders serve an array of frozen drinks and specialty cocktails here. In addition, the Vue Bar on the property's second floor is the place to go for the best view of downtown's mesmerizing Viva Vision canopy.Eclectic entertainment is always on tap at the resort. You can get tickets to the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" or the hilarious musical extravaganza led by Frankie Scinta. Comedy magician Adam London and "Ja-Makin'-Me Laugh," a ventriloquism act starring Matilda and Patrick Murray, appear in the afternoons. Featuring fine food and service, Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse on the second floor of The D Las Vegas offers expertly prepared steaks and homemade pasta in an elegant setting. A true dining gem -- where you can indulge in a five-star meal without the five-star price tag -- all of the dishes here are prepared from scratch daily using only the freshest ingredients. Among the items not to miss are the Andiamo Grande Meatball, the 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk rib eyesteak, the Pappardelle with Veal Ragu and the Cioppino alla Calabrese. Plus, the cannoli is to die for! For a more casual meal, step into the D Grill, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are dished up in generous portions. It's open 24 hours a day and every meal here -- from the fluffy Maui Pancakes and the Southern Herb-Fried Chicken to the Bananas Foster Bread Pudding -- is prepared from scratch. There's also a McDonald's on the premises. And The D Las Vegas has brought a Detroit hot dog legend to Sin City. American Coney Island now serves up Michigan's most famous Dearborn Sausage Company frankfurters -- complete with the secret recipe sauce!The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres. You'll hear the hottest hits over the speaker system while playing the latest in slot machines and table games (some of which are hosted by the sizzling "Dancing Dealers") on the first floor. On the second floor, guests wanting a blast to the past will discover classic coin-operated machines and the beloved Sigma Derby, an electronic horse racing game. The resort also has a high-limit gaming area as well as a William Hill Sports Book.At The D Las Vegas, you can enjoy the benefits of staying in the heart of downtown with a high level of comfort and style -- all at a very affordable price. -- By Renée LiButti

Exceeded my expectations
PostedNovember 2, 2012
I always went to the D, when it was the Fitz. I thought all they were going to do was change the bedding and the decor. I must say that I was impressed with the casino upgrade, the Long Bar that was added, and the soft, plush mattresses. The only downside to the gambling is if your a card player, 95% of the tables now has the continuous card shufflers. :(

There's always something going on at the Stratosphere, which is conveniently situated between downtown Las Vegas and the Strip. The resort, which boasts the tallest freestanding tower in the United States, is also home to several great restaurants, two enjoyable shows, plenty of shops and four heart-stopping thrill rides.At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower dwarfs everything else in the city. Since it extends to such a great height, it's visible from nearly every vantage point in Las Vegas. So you can just imagine the extraordinary perspective you'll have when looking down upon the entire valley from the top. In less than 40 seconds, high-speed elevators will take you to the 109th floor, where there's an indoor and outdoor observation deck.It's hard to believe four thrill rides and the Air Bar -- as you may find you need a drink! -- are also located here. Screams of terror as well as delight can be heard coming from X-Scream (something of a giant teeter totter), Insanity (a chaotic spinning ride) and SkyJump (a cable-controlled freefall). The Big Shot, a fearsome ride that shoots straight up into the air and then drops back down to the launch pad, somehow temporarily eliminates the feeling of gravity.A safer and saner way to enjoy the tower is with a fine meal in the Top of the World restaurant. One of Las Vegas' premier gourmet rooms, it serves sophisticated cuisine impeccably paired with wine and complemented by a 360-degree view of the city -- because the floor makes a complete rotation every 80 minutes. If you just want to sip on a cocktail while taking in the extraordinary views, head up a floor to the Level 107 Lounge.Preparing eccellènte pasta and other Italian delights is the pride and joy of Fellini's Ristorante Italiano. Singing for your supper is all the rage at Roxy's Diner. The cool waitstaff in this nostalgic restaurant, known for its old-fashioned home cooking, often put on a show. Stop by McCall's Heartland Grill for a hearty mix of steak and seafood in a Midwestern-style restaurant. The Buffet -- with its array of cuisines, carving stations, a deli area and fresh-baked pastries -- is simply delicious at any time of the day. Or the Tower Pizzeria & Creamery is a great place to grab a quick slice and a scoop of ice cream.Through Dec. 20, 2014, Frankie Moreno and his 10-piece band create a party atmosphere each evening in the resort's main showroom with their undeniable musical talent, swagger and shots of Crown Royal whiskey. They play a captivating collection of classic covers and original hits. Moreno has also produced a show called "Pin Up." The swingin' production stars Claire Sinclair, a Playboy Playmate, and was choreographed by Lacey Schwimmer of "Dancing with the Stars."Open seasonally, summers at the Stratosphere are best spent at the Level 8 Pool, located on the eighth floor. In addition to a hot tub, poolside café and bar, you'll always find a game of water volleyball in session.For a more serious workout, check out the resort's 24-hour fitness center. Or do something wonderful for both your body and spirit by getting treatment, massage or facial at the Roni Josef International Salon & Spa. It's guaranteed to melt all your stresses away!For those who dream of shopping around the world, there's the Tower Shops with 32 stores and an eclectic mix of retail carts. Explore the avenues of Paris, the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and the ritzy neighborhoods of New York City at this unique retail complex that features replicated street scenes from those iconic shopping cities.About a mile from both the heart of the Strip and downtown, the Stratosphere offers visitors a convenient connection to all the action via The Deuce and the Strip and Downtown Express bus systems.No visit to Las Vegas would be complete without exploring the Stratosphere and its famous tower -- and staying here is even better. The resort is affordably priced and perfectly placed for a fantastic vacation!-- By Renée LiButti

The room I reserved was not what I imagined
PostedNovember 2, 2012
The room was supposedly updated in 2008, but it was kind of Motel 6-ish. The bathroom was small and looked like a motel bathroom and the decor was outdated. I've stayed at the Strat before, but I stayed in a suite, and it was GORGEOUS. There was an option to get an upgrade for an addtional few dollars, but I didnt know the rooms wouldve been that completely different. I guess you get what you pay for.

You can't miss the Luxor in Las Vegas. The giant pyramid-shaped resort named for an ancient Egyptian city shines the world's strongest light beam into the sky each night.As happens in history, things change. Since opening in 1993, the 30-story architectural wonder has evolved. The Luxor now has a more contemporary, less ancient Egyptian feel.Although you'll still see replicas of Cleopatra's Needle and the giant sphinx outside as well as enjoy the stunning rendition of the Great Temple of Ramesses II upon entering the world's largest atrium, everywhere else you'll encounter a hipper, more high-energy vibe.Overall, the Luxor is an excellent, affordably priced resort sandwiched between Mandalay Bay and Excalibur on the southern end of the Strip. (Note: A free tram provides easy access to both those properties.) Here, guests can do it all. There are numerous entertainment options, good restaurants and fascinating exhibits, along with convenient access to a world-class retail complex -- The Shoppes at Mandalay Place -- situated on the sky bridge connecting the Luxor to Mandalay Bay.This hotel is ideal for leisure, business and family travelers. There are 4,400 rooms and suites housed among the pyramid and two 22-story towers. In the pyramid, guests revel in riding the four "inclinators," which zip up the structure at a 39-degree angle. Slanted glass windows also add to the distinctive décor. The twin towers, on the other hand, offer more traditional accommodations. In both settings, the rooms are air-conditioned, well-appointed, come with 27-inch televisions and have high-speed internet access -- so your stay is guaranteed to be comfortable.In terms of entertainment, the Luxor caters to a wide range of interests. Laugh it up while watching the antics of prop comedian Carrot Top, or be mystified by "Criss Angel Believe." Cirque du Soleil joined forces with the "Mindfreak" magician to create this haunting show filled with spectacular illusions. Sexy dancers prance around nightly in "Fantasy," while "Menopause the Musical" gives mature women who are either facing or have lived through "The Change" something to chuckle about. And the hot urban dance crew Jabbawockeez perform in the show "PRiSM." The production features a state-of-the-art set, cutting-edge technology, inventive costumes and the latest music combined with a specially designed, custom-built theater.Although not a dining powerhouse, there are several standout restaurants in the Luxor. T&T (Tacos & Tequila) features a combination of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine from celebrated chef Richard Sandoval. Decorative metallic art pieces that hang from the ceiling add to the rock 'n' roll atmosphere, as do an array of tequila-based drinks. Rice and Company is another innovative eatery serving healthy twists on traditional Chinese and Japanese cuisines. It also offers tropically influenced variations of sushi, sashimi, hibachi and teriyaki.The Luxor's dining options are rounded out by the gourmet steak and seafood restaurant Tender and the kosher-style Backstage Deli. More the Buffet is located in its own special area just an escalator ride down from the main casino floor. A trendy food court is helmed by McDonald's along with L.A. Subs and Salads, Benanno's New York Pizzeria and The Original Chicken Tender Co. Plus, Public House, a sophisticated bar and pub with American-style cuisine and East Coast roots, opened recently.Liquidity is the central hot spot for nightlife at the Luxor, and as such it lies at the center of the resort. You'll be mesmerized by all the eye-catching water and lighting effects. Posh LAX is another featured nightclub. Behind gothic-like gates, it sprawls out over two floors and attracts a young, stylish crowd. A more intimate nightlife experience is available next door at Savile Row, which alludes to the infamous London Street of the same name. Alternatively, Flight and Aurora provide more laid-back bar experiences.Guests of all ages will want to investigate Luxor's two museum-quality exhibits. "BODIES...The Exhibition" illustrates the inner workings of the human body by showcasing real bodies and organs, while "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" tells the story of the doomed ship through a display of authentic artifacts and re-creations of the Grand Staircase, the Promenade Deck and a first-class cabin. Although small in comparison to other spas on the Strip, Nurture Spa and Salon has a cheerful, rejuvenating outlook combined with an extensive menu of massages, facials and body treatments. Four large pools, a whirlpool and 12 private cabanas make up the Luxor's five-acre pool area. And more than 120,000 square feet of gaming awaits on the casino floor, including a vibrant race and sports book and the Bruce Buffer Poker Room.Friendly and accommodating, the Luxor offers a unique setting that makes a great base from which to venture anywhere in Las Vegas. And when the day is done, you'll have a comfortable bed in the pyramid or the adjoining towers to come home to.-- By Renée LiButti

Is there free parking onsite for a pickup truck and car trailer and if so is the parking lot secure? Are there any other hotel taxes, fees etc.? etc.

The resort fee is $7/ day. Parking is free, valet is free, not sure what the options are for cars with trailers.
