Adult couple going to Las Vegas & want the biggest bang for our buck.

where would you suggest staying?

Aria, Vdara, Bellagio, Mandalay Bay,
Venetian, Wynn, Caesars, Pallazo, Cosmopolition? Others? We want some space.

We were hoping for some type of kitchen to be able to eat in the room. Perhaps sit on the balcony and have coffee. (It's amazing how many hotels don't list if the room gets coffee or not.)

Vdara has kitchenettes in even it's cheapest, don't think most of the others do

Best bang/buck you might consider going priceline 5 star (look up the free rebid trick)... we got Vdara pretty cheaply that way a year or two ago for example.

There are a lot of timeshares in Vegas. Most have kitchens. Look at vrbo.com or airbnb.com or redweek.com to see if any are being rented out.

Vdara is probably your best bet if you want to stay close to the strip, nice room and kitchen area. The only thing is I'm not sure where the nearest grocery store would be for you to buy food to cook.

I think you are getting thumbs down because of not leaving a lot of additional info for help like dates or most importantly, price range. Your best bang for the buck is probably different than someone else's best bang for the buck. Hope you guys have fun though!

I figured the TDs were because they're going to a town where most people expect to be enjoying themselves outside their room most of their waking time there, and where they've got so many fantastic places to eat wanting a kitchen might seem odd.


As to a grocery store- there's a few little shops, drugs stores, etc that have some items on the strip...there's a few convenience store places a block or two off strip... but you'll need a car to get to a "real" grocery store... (I suppose there's CAT bus routes that'll get you there eventually too... but if you're staying at a 5 star in vegas and then taking a bus to the grocery store I've really gotta wonder...)

and note the fridge is pretty small in the room so you won't be buying a weeks worth of cold stuff at a time anyway.

I typically stay at El Cortez and apply the savings to eating in Chinatown - can find a great lunch for $10pp.

The fremont st area is great bang for your buck, I'm unsure about kitchenettes though.

You are probably getting thumbs down because "biggest bang for the buck" is SO subjective. Everyone has different priorities that they find most important. The time of year and days of the week you visit make an enormous difference on price. Whether this is your first trip to Las Vegas, and whether you will have a car or not, also would be factors in which hotel(s) to recommend.

Going off what you offered above, you want to stay on the Strip, you want space, you prefer a kitchenette and balcony, and you want coffee. For brevity's sake, I will only speak to the hotels you named.
  • Space: In general, all of the places you mentioned offer decent base rooms. Caesars does have some room types in older towers that are smaller. Venetian/Palazzo are all spacious psuedo-suites.
  • Kitchenette: Vdara and Cosmopolitan only. Note that Vdara has no casino.
  • Balcony: Cosmopolitan only. Cosmo tends to be more expensive because of this, but a Terrace room facing the Bellagio fountains is hard to beat.
  • Coffee: Strip hotels don't offer in-room coffeemakers. They want you to get room service or go down to their casino/restaurants/Starbucks.

Aria, Vdara, Cosmopolitan, Bellagio and Caesars Palace all have, arguably, the best locations - homes of and close to some of the best restaurants, shows, pools, etc. If you are a first time or infrequent visitor to Las Vegas, I would recommend staying mid-Strip, but you won't really go wrong with any of the hotels you listed.

Biggest bang for your buck would probably be Vdara. Out of the ones you've listed, it's probably the lowest price point, very central and since all the rooms are suites, they're pretty big. Only thing is there's no casino, but it's less than a 5 min walk to both Bellagio and the Aria. Try booking with promo codes from www.mycheapvegas.com, you'll save a bit more money that way.

This isn't true. Some of Vdara's rooms have Keurig machines. If it doesn't, you can always request one (which you would have to do if you plan to use the kitchenette as its not stocked with pots, pans, or dishes).

Depends on what kind of a bang you are looking for in "adult" fun. In Vegas the sky is the limit. Anything you want you can have if you have the cash...

Probably because the OP claims in one sentence that she wants the biggest bang for an adult couple....then goes on to say she wants a kitchen and balcony to sip coffee....

You can sip coffee in your own place. Vegas is the place to let go, become uninhibited, and stretch the outer limits of your imagination.

Guessing thread got thumbs down because it looks like OP did zero research before asking the question.
