Okay, so we didn't stay here either, but I did some research on this hotel. We did explore the hotel and I can't wait to go back!

You want the best room in Vegas? Look no further. Unfortunately, you'll have to pay for it...tres expensif!

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom: Oh, man, if you use it all you'll be attacked by bees thinking you're a big flower. Shampoo, conditioner, lotions, sewing kits and everything the best places have. Our advice is to bring a big toilet kit or purse to haul all this booty home.

Five acres of pool deck with five pools. While it's mostly plain old concrete, it's still plenty of swimming fun.

Unique Qualities: Canal Shops
This mall is as fancy as the Forum Shops at Caesars. There are dozens of high class shops for you to browse. It's all indoors and there's a canal where you may take a gondola ride for a small bundle. It's spectacular enough to be worth seeing once.

Guggenheim
A real, legitimate art museum. This is a Hermitage outlet of the Guggenheim, which means it shows things from the permanent collection of Guggenheim or Hermitage focusing on themes, such as pop art or impressionists. Not exactly why you went to Vegas, but trust me, it's cheaper than spending time at the craps table.

Madame Tussaud's Las Vegas
Want to spend $14 looking at big, human-shaped candles? If mannequins in the shapes of stars are not your thing, walk on by. A few of the celebs featured include: Evander Holyfield, "The Rock", Muhammad Ali, Brad Pitt, Eddie Murphy, Harrison Ford, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Idol, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Jon Bon Jovi, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Mick Jagger, Oprah, Jerry Springer and George Dubya.
