Experience the Big Apple in Las Vegas.
One of the last themed hotels on The Strip, New York-New York offers fun for both grownups and kids. Home to the a recreation of the streets of New York City, this hotel brings together all of the major attractions the real NYC offers, complete with a mini NYC skyline.
Guests here can enjoy a variety of dining options in a recreated Greenwich Village, as well as the adults-only Zumanity by Cirque du Soliel, the Big Apple roller coaster, close proximity to the brand new Park (an eight-block outdoor area to explore right on Las Vegas Blvd.), plus some decent nightlife via Coyote Ugly.
Some of the rooms here are in need of a renovation (skip the Madison Ave. rooms and opt for Park Ave. instead), but overall its pretty decent value for the buck you’re going to put down. It’s a bit far from most of the major Strip action if you’re looking for clubs and shopping, but close to some world class dining options (and vegan eats at the nearby MGM, Mandalay Bay and other shots).
