New York - New York, on the south end of the beautiful Las Vegas Strip, is your vacation from your vacation planning. MGM Resorts took all the best things about the Big Apple, chucked all the things that make even New Jersey cringe, and turned the city that never sleeps into the hotel and casino that never disappoints. From the shadow of the half-sized Statue of Liberty, you'll feel like you've reach a new world – one that's admittedly less "lift my lamp beside the golden door" and more "OMG look at all that chocolate!"There are a lot of things we could describe first at NY-NY, but… chocolate. Hershey's Chocolate World is like the heaven a child would create if they had magical powers for a day. Full of Hershey's candy bars, Reese's peanut butter cups and pieces, jumbo-sized Hershey's chocolate and strawberry syrup bottles, an entire wall full of Hershey's Kiss dispensers, an 800-pound replica of the Statue of Liberty carved from Hershey's Milk Chocolate and probably a bunch of blood sugar spikes and/or promises to work off the extra calories at the gym for the next month, this is one spot no chocolate lover can miss. And just inside the casino floor is the Chocolate Bar which is like the heaven that same child would make once they grew up and discovered vodka.But there's a lot more at NY-NY to appreciate than just the chocolate. The Bar at Times Square is a quaint and clever establishment featuring dueling pianos and the type of atmosphere you see in sitcoms set in New York but would probably miss out on if you actually went there. It's the perfect introduction to the Village Street Eateries set into a charming New York style neighborhood setting, as well as the nearby Gallagher's Steakhouse. Several shops like Stupidiotic, Swatch and I Love NYNY as well as eateries like the cool roadside burger stand Shake Shack link right to the promenade on Las Vegas Boulevard. And just next to the shops lies a true NY-NY Las Vegas experience.Nine Fine Irishmen already has an appealing name – who doesn't love an Irish lad? But what really makes this emerald establishment extraordinary is the atmosphere. Like an ode to the Irish heritage of old New York, the building was actually assembled in Ireland and shipped to the United States. So there's a fun fact to reiterate to people over and over after you've had a few too many whiskeys. Featuring classic Irish beers on a tap and a food menu that'll put a swing in your shillelagh, Nine Fine Irishmen is a gorgeous bar with an inviting demeanor and a fascinating history that we don't have time to tell right now.Once you've tossed back a few pints, take a ride on the Big Apple Coaster. Maybe reverse the order on those activities if you want to minimize your chances of throwing up. Zip past hotel room windows and get a view of the Las Vegas Strip that no other roller coaster can match. It's the most fun you can have swinging around the Chrysler building without being Spider-Man.As if that weren't enough to take your breath away, Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil is perhaps the hottest show in town that doesn't involve a strip club and a lie to your wife. The show is an exploration of sexuality through performance, acrobatics, dancing, comedy and all the extreme athleticism you'd expect from Cirque du Soleil. A stream of vignettes, each character embraces their sexual nature and puts on an obviously adult oriented experience full of passion, lust and a whole lot of fun.From the skyline and the towers to the bars and the best shows, New York New York has brought to Las Vegas everything you could want from the Empire City. We may not be able to give you ocean views, but once you see the sun set over the mountains you won't miss the waves. And if you ever do feel nostalgic for that other New York, just stop into one of the bars and have the bartender make you mean Manhattan.

Good experience
PostedApril 8, 2013
Was there from 4-1 to 4-4. Vegas.com(and most of the comments) described NYNY perfectly. The room (Madison Ave) was exactly as described... very clean, and plenty of room for my wife&I. The food in the hotel was good... loved the bakery(the one by the Italian Restaurant--El Fiocina(or something like that).. The casino was good.. plenty of tables open(blackjack and craps). The only drawbacks to really mention were (A)... the smoke in the casino. To be fair, we walked around many hotels on the strip, and most had this same problem(the Venetian and Bellagio has a much better ventilation system).. (B).. The location is good(On the strip), but really away from most of the action that is a good mile or so up Las Vegas Blvd. (C).. The annoying people that want to give you free/reduced tickets to a show (if you listen to a 2-3 hour presentation on a timeshare)... I know they are just trying to do their job, but when you decline their offer, they get real huffy.. We had one person say "What is wrong with these people today" when we walked off.... Not really professional..
All in all, we really were satisfied with the property, but we might try out the Venetian next time, due to their location (center of the strip), and the ventilation system on the casino floor. I definitely will use Vegas.com to book my trip again, you guys were great!

Time is something we never have enough of, we get it. The Hoover Dam Express Tour is the quick and dirty version for folks who want to get back to the mayhem on the Strip as quickly as possible.First, you'll zip over to the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada" sign where you can take all the questionable photos you'd like before posting them online for the world to see. It's pretty much a rite of passage at this point.Then you'll kick your feet up in a luxury motor coach with seats and foot rests that are probably more comfortable than your living room recliner. You've even got a swanky restroom on board in case of potty emergencies on the way to the Hoover Dam. The only thing missing is a cocktail waitress.Your friendly tour guide (who unfortunately will not be serving you booze – give them a break, they're driving) will give you a rundown of everything you can expect to see at the historic Hoover Dam. You'll learn about the construction and what it takes to keep this colossal man-made wonder running smoothly. It was a government project that was actually completed on time and under budget. That probably hasn't happened since then (badum-bum). Oh, and good news - you’ll get a free pick-up and drop-off at your hotel.

Hoover Dam was great
PostedApril 5, 2013
I talked to a Vegas.com advisor before I booked the trip, and she told me the difference between the Hoover Dam tours. Anyway, the bus driver(Adam) was on time, and very informative about the history of the Hoover Dam.. Honestly, I probably learned more from Adam about the Hoover Dam than I did from the people at the dam. The experience was great (exactly how the Vegas.com advisor described). Weather was fantastic, and the tour was great.
