A Suite Experience at Caesars Palace (Las Vegas, NV)

December 27, 2020 |

We’ve enjoyed stays at: Paris Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel, and Luxor Hotel & Casino in previous trips to Vegas. Those accommodations are typical rooms… usually 300 to 450 square feet… with two double or queen beds. You imagine winning big and getting a hotel room like this. This time, we found a promotion to enjoy a “suite” experience a Caesars Palace. Only $175/night! Long story short, it was hard to ever leave the room. Read More

First time visiting Santa Maria, CA to pick up a 2015 Polaris RZR XP 1000. Relieved after a long 6-hr drive from home to know the owners of the off road vehicle only lived 6 min from this hotel. When we made reservations, we didn’t know it was haunted. Read More

In summary, would we stay in Paris Hotel again? No. And here’s why. Read More
