This book has information regarding shows, hotels, restaurants, nightlife. There are little tips here and there but none i found that i didn't already really know.
What I don't like is that there are no pictures--and there are very few visual breaks for me so sometimes the pages can be a bit overwhelming. I loved the Fodor's book the best for layout and pictures as well as side trip information.
The difficulty in rating is that there are some things I like about Fodor's better and it gives better information and some things I like about this one better--this one has more information about buffets--which kind of excite me. I'm wondering if the only thing i will be doing is eating!
After looking at Fodors and this book over and over, it really has become more of a tie for me between the two. Frommers on the other hand is clearly not on par with either of these books and provides the least amount of information on everything.
If you are only looking to be in Las Vegas, then this is probably the best book. If however, you are like me and also wanting to do day trips or side trips, I would also purchase Fodor's Guide to Las Vegas 2010 as it has a lot more information about those. (63 pages on side trips--as opposed to 6 pages in this book).
I hope this help you make a decision on which book is best.
I learned from this book about the "M" casino that has an excellent buffet for fairly inexpensive. it is a little south of the strip so a lot of people don't know about. so far, it is our favorite buffet. although we will be going to Wynn soon because they are suppose to have an excellent buffet also.
I highly recommend buying and reading at least 1 of these guides--this or fodor's as there is so much information that you may not find out if you just come.
first purchase of an "Unofficial" book and will not be my last. It's very well
layed out, plenty of good information and good maps. I don't think you will be
disappointed, I wasn't. Well worth the money, especially at the "Amazon" price.
The format of the book makes comparisons between hotels, dining establishments and entertainment easy. This is not my first trip to Las Vegas so this book is for everyone.
I have purchased Unofficial Guides to other cities and I have never been disappointed!!
This was probably the best investment for our vacation that I made!
We go to Vegas at least once a year and found a lot of coupons to use - the food coupons got us BOGOs at some of our favorite inexpensive buffets (Gold Coast and Flamingo) as well as introduced us to new places (we got deli sandwiches at the deli at NYNY - wow, they were phenomenal and we would never have tried that spot without the coupon).
My husband and I tend to not be tied to just one casino so we used quite a few of the coupons for free slot play at some unfamiliar casinos - so that was fun as well.
You will recoup the cost of the book in 2 - 3 coupons.
It also is just a great resource - it tells you everything you need to know about every casino - # machines, payoffs, address, buffet costs, etc. For folks who do enjoy trekking around, that info is worth the cost of the book as well.
Much of the book is for non-Vegas casinos (Indiana, Florida, etc.) - we are anxious to see if they begin to include coupons for our PA casinos in future editions.
We are headed back to Vegas in December and - absolutely - we purchased the 2010 guide - we won't leave home without one from now on!
