Vegas Trip 2012!!!!

I've been to Vegas about 7 times now.

This is the first time that I was on the right side of the plane at the perfect time of day...... Got a great view of the Grand Canyon.

Got to see The Strip also.

Got a 1 bedroom suite at Planet Hollywood Westgate Towers.

The crushed ice from the fridge was perfect for margarritas.

The bedroom also had a huge jacuzzi.

Ensuite bathroom.......

With a washer/ dryer (yes, I washed my clothes...... because of living in the Airstream, I jumped at the chance to bring home clean clothes).

The Pièce de Résistance was the projection television. There were 5 televisions in the suite. Holey Moley.

Jo and Al were in the adjoining room so we all got to enjoy.

Please note: At first glance, the suite is totally spectacular. Upon further inspection, there were a lot of missing and broken items...... did not stand up to the 4.5 star rating. Without going into great detail, we did get moved up to the 53rd floor and got a $100 meal credit. NOT worth all the hassles we had.

Shopped out brains out.

Dinner at Tao. The chilean sea bass is always fantastic, but we were made to feel rushed.

Positive note: it is worth checking out.

******If you do go, tell your waiter that you want to take your time, and make sure to visit the restrooms (look under the mirrors).

My fortune.

The Bellagio's water feature never ceases to amaze.

Heading out for the day.

I finally made it to Battista's Hole in the Wall (it was recommended to me years ago and I've never had the chance to go).

If you love Italian food, a fun atmosphere, free wine, and lots of history, you should go.

View from the 53rd floor.

Love the city lights.

Giving Buddha a little belly rub for good luck.

Had a great time with the girls.

Gotta rest up for the Calgary trip.

I think your trip to Vegas looks and sounds way more fine than mine was! Hope Calgary is a blast :)

Love love LOVE this post!! Vegas completes me. As tacky and dirty as it can be (while being fancy and exquisite at the same time), I just love it! Can't get enough!
