Re: O/T Vegas Hotels
As long as you stay in one of the major hotels you can't go wrong. They are competitive with each other. We go there 2 or 3 times a year and have always had good reasonable rooms.

There usually are at least one of them in every casino - but you have to search for it. It's easy to recognize once you find it. You can ask someone where it is.
Across the top it says "ATM."
