The Orleans has ended up as our 'default' hotel in Vegas. There is a little something for everyone who is a bit tired of the non stop traffic on the strip. While too far for most to walk, there is a shuttle that ferries patrons back and forth (including a trip to the Gold Coast). The Orleans has solid eateries but has brought in the TGIF franchise....but they at least retained the 24 hour coffee shop as well. Decent gambling with 5/BJ and poker room. live bands in the lounge. large resort type rooms with a sitting area. love the bathroom that has a little window that opens.
So...if looking at a solid value 1 mile from the strip...I can recommend the Orleans.More
