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

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!

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.
