The Stratosphere in Las Vegas:

The Stratosphere in Las Vegas: I have to tell you guys, I had a better room at The Terrible’s last year. I checked in faster and easier, I had the phone and wireless without asking. I had a more comfortable bed there too. Here at the Stratosphere, I was hit with with extra fees for everything… And they wanted me to pay a 250 dollar deposit for the phone. WTF? Next year, The Terribles again… I’ll never come back to the Stratosphere. I don’t like being itemized. I like be treated like a Guest. The food in the Stratosphere tasted like crap. They have a 50’s style diner that sells overpriced burgers that, well, you can get a better burger by microwaving a prepackaged one at a gas station. The novelty of going up real high in a tower, yeah, I got over that in my tree house as a kid. So what was the upside to it? It was easy to find. The parking was easy to get in and out of, and it put me right out near Paradise Road which allowed a pretty easy run to the back of the Venetian to get into their parking for Shot.
I have a separate SHOT report that wrote up, so here, I’ll just talk about Las Vegas. I really liked the New York New York hotel. That place is nice. Bigger rooms, nicer rooms, but better yet, you actually had good food in the place. They have a New York style deli that actually makes New York style sandwiches. As much as I liked the Ribeye at Smith & Wollenskys, that “New York Sky High” was awesome. They had some fried clams and fried calamari that was fresh and done to perfection. Very good to say the least.
