If you stay at the Luxor hotel you'll always easily be able to find your way back to it no matter how directionally-challenged you are. Not only is its distinctive pyramid shape one of the most recognizable landmarks in Las Vegas, all you have to do is look for the world’s strongest light beam shooting up into the sky from the top. It's so bright that on a clear night, it's visible up to 275 miles away by airplanes at cruising altitude.When the Luxor opened in 1993, it proudly touted an Egyptian theme with things like a Nile River ride and a replica of King Tut's tomb. Today, you'll still see replicas of Cleopatra's Needle and the giant sphinx outside, but Luxor has traded most of its Egyptian roots for a hipper, more high-energy vibe.Luxor is one of the most unique places to stay in Las Vegas. There are 4,400 rooms and suites housed inside the pyramid and two 22-story towers. If you're staying in the pyramid, check out the Luxor's version of a thrill ride. You'll have to reach your room by "inclinator," an elevator that travels along the inner surface of the pyramid at a 39-degree angle. We're willing to bet you’ve never had an elevator ride like this before.There are plenty of ways to get your party on at Luxor. Start out at Flight, a bar with cocktails, beers and inexpensive shots. It's a great pre-game before clubbing at LAX, a two-story nightspot for the hip-hop and Top 40 crowd. If you want something a little more laid back, the lobby bar, Aurora, is open 24 hours and serves contemporary cocktails. Just look for the cool lighting effects on the ceiling that mimic the Northern Lights.Luxor has dining options that will satisfy just about every taste. T&T (Tacos & Tequila) features a combination of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine and a rock 'n' roll atmosphere. Our advice: stop in on Sundays for the Mariachi Brunch and kick that hangover with specially priced margaritas and bloody Marias. Those with gourmet tastes will enjoy a good steak or fresh seafood at Tender. On the go or traveling with kids who are picky? There’s also a food court with fast food favorites.There's enough entertainment and attractions at Luxor to keep everyone happy. Guys will love the sexy ladies of "Fantasy" and hilarious prop comedian Carrot Top cracks everyone up. Magic lovers will be mystified by "Criss Angel Believe." Cirque du Soleil joined forces with the "Mindfreak" magician to create this show filled with illusions.Guests of all ages will want to explore Luxor's two museum-quality exhibits. "BODIES...The Exhibition" illustrates the inner workings of the human body by showcasing real bodies and organs. Sounds like it could be a bit gruesome, but it's actually really fascinating. "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" tells the story of the doomed ship through a display of authentic artifacts and some eerie re-creations of the Grand Staircase, the Promenade Deck and a first-class cabin. Plus there is a 15-ton piece of the ship's hull (the largest piece ever raised from the wreck) on display. Guests at Luxor can also easily take advantage of amenities at either Mandalay Bay or Excalibur next door. Mandalay Bay and Luxor are connected by The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, which houses unique shops and restaurants. A free tram also provides easy access between all three hotels.There are dozens of ways to stay busy at Luxor but maybe your vacation is all about relaxing. They've totally got that covered too. Four large pools, a whirlpool and 12 private cabanas make up the Luxor's five-acre pool area. There's also a spa where you can be pampered with an array of treatments.

Guests of Palace Station will enjoy an extensive array of amenities during their stay as well as a prime location just west of the Las Vegas Strip. This laid-back resort is also conveniently situated next to the I-15. Built in 1976 on 38 acres and originally opened as "The Casino," it became Palace Station, the flagship property for the Station Casinos empire, in 1991. Although the resort has undergone various renovations, including the addition of a 21-story room tower, it's kept a down-to-earth vibe, making it ideal for travelers on a budget who are seeking a good hotel value.The rooms and suites at Palace Station are outfitted for comfort, with things like cable TVs, hair dryers and wireless internet access. An outdoor pool with a hot tub, a fully equipped fitness center, a business center, a gift shop and a courtesy airport/Strip shuttle will also enhance your vacation experience.From classic to ethnic, guests can indulge their taste buds with a wide range of restaurants. The Charcoal Room, a classic American steakhouse, is where you can savor things like oysters on the half shell, lobster chowder, bone-in New York steak, rib eye, top sirloin and an outstanding porterhouse. Cabo Mexican Restaurant has a fun salsa bar and serves a menu of authentic flavors from south of the border. And the Oyster Bar is an 18-seat, live-action kitchen preparing freshly shucked oysters, steamed clams and homemade seafood pastas. Little Tony's by Tony Gemignani, an 11-time World Pizza Champion winner, will debut April 22, 2015.For quick meals, Palace Station boasts the cheerful Grand Café, the all-you-can-eat Feast Buffet, Little Tony's by Tony Gemignani, the Food Express Chinese Restaurant, four fast food eateries (Subway, Johnny Rockets, Bonanno's New York Pizzeria and Starbucks) and 24-hour room service.Lively evenings can be spent in Jack's, a pub and sports bar. Local bands also play here several nights a week. The Traxx Bar and Trackside Bar are two more fine spots for cocktails -- including the beloved 99-cent margarita.The casino floor is always busy at Palace Station. You'll find plenty of action in the bingo hall, keno lounge or race and sports book, which boasts 230 seats and 44 large video screens. There's a nonsmoking poker room along with numerous table games and more than 1,600 slot and video poker machines. The resort is unique in that it has an Asian table games area, where guests can try their luck at pai gow tiles and both mini and midi baccarat.Ideal for meetings and special celebrations, Palace Station also features more than 20,000 square feet of event space. It's equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including projectors, DVD players and other technological devices. Catering and other services are available as well.Palace Station is within walking distance of several other restaurants and a short drive from downtown and the Strip -- putting guests near the epicenter of all the big happenings in Las Vegas.

For the most part, people like to be in the action. For example, at a baseball game the seats directly behind home plate are far more exciting than the nosebleeds that practically require binoculars.And now that we have established that, we will let you know that one of our favorite parts about the Four Queens Hotel & Casino is that its location is practically the dugout – for non-baseball followers, it is smack-dab in the middle of the action.Boasting old Vegas glamour fashion (translation: lots of neon), this vintage property (it opened in 1966) is situated at the intersection of Casino Center Boulevard and Fremont Street and is part of the revitalization occurring in this iconic area of the city.Connected to Fremont Street Experience, the main entrance of the Four Queens is positioned underneath a stunning multimillion-light Viva Vision canopy that brilliantly twinkles like a welcoming beacon to all of its visitors and guests alike. Considering its location, everything you could imagine is within reach just steps from the marble-floored lobby. From classic Fremont Street amusements, hotels, shops, and restaurants to the Strip and Downtown Express bus systems, you have a number of options with the Four Queens as home base.And while you're not out exploring the delights of Sin City, you will undoubtedly find yourself entertained somewhere within the Four Queens. The 32,000-square-foot casino floor at the hotel includes a Keno lounge, a massive mix of table games as well as slot and video poker machines, which run the gamut and are regularly updated to reflect the latest trends. And for the sports fans, the hotel's Race and Sports Book offers bar style seating while onlookers watch the game on one of the 42-inch flat screen TVs.When you're ready for a drink (or three!) there are several bars located throughout the casino while the largest bar – the Patio Bar – is located just outside of the main entrance in addition to smaller bars at the east and west entrances. Needless to say… you will be well hydrated regardless of where you enter or roam within the hotel.When hunger strikes the Four Queens has you covered. For an intimate private dining experience, step into Hugo's Cellar -- this gourmet restaurant opened with the resort and consistently tops locals' lists for the best gourmet meal. Offering patrons the chance to go back in time and enjoy impeccable service paired with a sumptuous menu boasting gourmet continental cuisine you are guaranteed a full belly and a good memory. And to add to the elegance of the deep red, brick walls and the table-side salad preparation, every woman is presented with a long-stemmed red rose.However, if you're looking for a quicker, less formal bite, Magnolia's Veranda, a 24-hour coffee shop, is also a long-running favorite with visitors and in-the-know locals, thanks to its tempting $9.95 prime rib special. Or you can swing by the food court, which is home to Subway, Noble Roman's Pizza as well as Dreyer's Ice Cream.And in the middle of those options is the most recently opened  eatery, the Chicago Brewing Company. Along with handcrafted microbrews, you can tantalize your taste buds with a fresh-baked pizza or kick back for a smoke in the cigar lounge.For those interested in continuing the post-meal entertainment in the hotel, the Canyon Club showroom hosts comic magician Mike Hammer early in the evening as well as Steve Connolly, who impersonates Elvis in "Spirit of the King," later in the evening. With the oak décor, deep, stage-surrounding sofas, coffee tables and simple folding chairs, the ambiance alone makes for an intimate entertainment experience.Combining fun and comfort with a great location in the heart of downtown, the Four Queens is where to stay if you want to experience the best of Vegas' past and present.

So you're probably wondering...what does the "D" stand for?The resort's moniker, The D Las Vegas, pays tribute to its downtown location as well as to the Detroit roots of its owners, Derek (who is often called "D" by friends) and Greg Stevens. Among the things that make The D Las Vegas so cool is the way it melds the Motor City with Sin City.Although not specifically Detroit-themed, the Stevens brothers have persuaded a few Michigan-based businesses to set up shop at their resort. Take Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. This Detroit-area import is a true dining gem -- and you can indulge in a five-star meal here without the five-star price tag. All of the dishes are prepared from scratch daily. The Andiamo Grande Meatball and 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk ribeye steak are not to be missed, plus the cannoli is so good you'll leave the gun and take it.Known for serving hot dogs like no others you've had before, American Coney Island counts itself among the oldest businesses in Detroit -- and there's only one location outside of Michigan. Can you guess where that is? Positioned next to The D Las Vegas' east casino entrance on Fremont Street Experience, these specially seasoned wieners from The Dearborn Sausage Company are topped with a secret chili recipe that's three generations old.There are other nuances of Detroit at The D Las Vegas. Whenever the city's beloved teams -- the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings -- play, you can expect to see the game broadcast at the Longbar, which is hailed as the longest watering hole in Nevada with 15 big flat-screen TVs lined up side by side. (And if any of those teams should make it to the championships, expect to find a party of epic proportions going on.)Actually the party spirit begins any time you approach The D Las Vegas. Outside on Fremont Street, you'll discover the modern-looking D Bar, where dancing girls in boots and fringed bikinis pour frozen alcohol-infused drinks into funny souvenir cups. Flair bartenders also flaunt their talents while mixing cocktails at the other end of the long counter.What else should you know about The D Las Vegas? Well, its showroom features some truly eclectic entertainment. Comedy magician Adam London appears in the afternoons. You can get tickets to the one-man comedy "Defending the Caveman" or the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" in the evenings. The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres. You'll hear dance-oriented music over the speaker system while playing the latest in slot machines and table games (some of which are manned by the sizzling "Dancing Dealers") on the first floor. On the second floor, it's a blast to the past. You'll discover discover classic coin-operated machines and the beloved Sigma Derby, an electronic horse racing game. The resort also houses a William Hill Sports Book.The D Las Vegas is located on Third Street between the Four Queens and Neonopolis. It's got a high-energy vibe -- one that reflects the energy of the revitalized downtown area. So we'd say the "D" really stands for "dynamic" or "dude, this is a fun and affordable place to stay."

The room was large, clean and well equipment. Good value for the price.
Casino was smoky and the dancers , well probably not needed.
HOWEVER, the old style slots were fun. Hearing the coins drop brought back fun memories. Contrary to their claim the slots are not so loose but won more hear than anywhere else. Would book again.

shuttels

do they have shuttles to and from the strip? if so what are the hours?
They do not but the DEUCE bus runs front very near the hotel to the strip and costs $7.00 for 24 hr pass. Excellent value. Used it often. The bus runs the full length of the strip. The bus to both outlet malls also is picked up very near the hotel.
