Tea Lounge was the only five-star worthy experience I had in Las Vegas. The wait staff is very professional and clean cut and the light snacks are full of flavor. Tea Lounge offers a variety of hot teas and coffees to go with the food and the clientele is well dressed and proper, as they should be. The views from Tea Lounge are also beautiful.
We stayed at The Venetian on our last trip and loved the hotel, but the pool area was unorganized and crowded. Multiple sites said the pool was open until 5 but when we got there it was getting ready to close at 4. Too crowded to really enjoy the 30 minutes we had.
The Garden and Dolphin Habitat is probably worth the price of admission for anyone who loves dolphins because they are not something you get to see everyday, but the exotic cats don't do much other than lay around and sometimes pace. The kids liked it and wanted to go back, but like everything else in this town, it's too expensive for what you get.
We ate at a couple of buffets during our last stay and everyone agreed that Bacchanal was the best. They have a lot of food options for every palate and the flavors are very good and authentic. My only complaint is that the drinks were not refilled right away and we had to wait a couple of minutes every time our drinks were empty. I prefer for the server to fill them up before they reach empty.
We had a night without the kids and wanted to visit a few off the strip properties that I've never seen. We decided to stop in the mermaid lounge while walking through silverton because the decorations were rather nice. The bar was busy but our bartender was extremely rude. He asked if I knew what I wanted and I said I may need a minute. He just walked away without offering any help. Clearly they don't appreciate their consumers.
Fremont Street used to be a fun place, but the drunks and rough people have nearly ruined it. If you go during the day, then you can still have a good time and experience the large screen, but be sure to leave before it gets too late and the rough crowd comes out.
It's cool, but I've seen better at the local Bass Pro.
The fountains are one of my favorite attractions in Las Vegas, but I wish they would play more classical or golden age music of Frank Sinatra and the people who actually built Las Vegas.
The service was good, but the kitchen staff is clearly not well trained. The clams were small and my steak came out looking almost blue. The oysters are okay, but I've had better.
3 stars because it's free, but it's really not that interesting. Just a little fire and a little music.
I brought the kids here thinking they would have a good time, but the games are rigged and they never won anything. It's a little dirty and dated too. I would recommend getting a cab and taking the family to a local arcade somewhere off the strip, because the arcade at New York New York was no better.
The flamingo habitat is a nice place to walk through with the family and get away from the usual Vegas surroundings. Just wish it was a little bigger.
