Hotel Review – New York New York Hotel & Casino Las Vegas

New York New York Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip uses the theme to create an environment that oozes New York City in many ways. The first and most obvious way is the architecture which features several skyscrapers, the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. There is even a half scale replica of the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, Soldiers and Sailors Monument, Whitney Museum of American Art, Ellis Island and Grand Central Terminal. Inside the hotel you’ll see other names familiar to New York City being used to define certain areas, such as Central Park, the main casino.

Staying at New York New York

New York New York Hotel Room

New York New York Hotel Room

New York New York is pretty luxurious but comes with an almost bargain basement price point. The cheapest rooms are the Skyline rooms which start at only $60 a night and although the rooms are on the small side they’re still luxurious and large compared to hotels in real downtown New York City. The Park Avenue Deluxe rooms begin at $70 and are a bit larger. Broadway Deluxe rooms get a little bigger and cost a touch more. And then the jump in price happens as you move into the $125 plus a night Spa Suites, but it may be worth the additional fee to have your own in room spa. The Marquis Suite features the spa and an additional sitting room and is a reasonable $135 a night. The Players Suite starts at $160 a night and is perfect if you’re traveling with friends or family as the two queen beds make it a real bargain. The Ziggurat Suite starts at $180 a night and has a whopping 1,100 square feet of living space and is one of the largest rooms in the hotel. It’s beautifully decorated with a separate sitting area, a bar, a dining table for four and a spa bed, a bargain for that much luxury. And finally the Penthouse Suite which begins at the surprisingly affordable rate of $260 a night, similar to the Ziggurat Suite in its amenities but featuring just a little more of everything, the Ziggurat is actually a better deal.

Attractions at New York New York

One of the biggest attractions at New York New York is the structure itself as its pretty darn amazing looking. And another homage to the actual New York centers around the massive tragedy that struck on September 11, 2001; people spontaneously sent tributes to the hotel which are on displayed with a permanent memorial near the Lady Liberty Statue. Another noted attraction at New York New York is their roller coaster, which was once called the Manhattan Express. The roller coaster travels through the interior and exterior of the hotel and is a great way to see the hotel from an entirely different perspective.

Gaming at New York New York

Shopping at New York New York

Shopping at New York New York is definitely not a reflection of shopping in New York City, a city that oozes high end designer fashions and cutting edge taste. New York New York is okay for shopping as the Soho Village area has some high end brands like Baby Phat, DKNY, Brighton, and Crislu and the Mezzanine Shopping zone has some signature souvenirs and magic shops to fulfill your gift quota. But if its serious shopping you want then this replica city falls flat.

Dining at New York New York

Now all foodies know that New York City is one of the best places in the world for high end cuisine and New York New York does its best to bring some of that attitude to Las Vegas. Their fine dining options include Gallagher’s Steakhouse and Il Fornaio, which are good but a bit limited.  Their casual dining venues, Nine Fine Irishmen, ESPN Zone, Chin Chin Café, Conzalez Y Gonzalez, and America throb with excitement and are more in line with the vibe in New York City. And if you’re in the mood for a quick bite then Quick Bites food court will probably have something to tide you over.

Entertainment at New York New York

Like the city itself, New York New York  is packed full of things to do, their headlining Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil is a sensual version of the noted circus act, with sex leading the way. Rock Vegas is a new nightclub with no holds barred excitement and intense VJs with unique vivid images set to music. The famous Coyote Ugly is housed in New York New York and a great time for those willing to get insulted and hop on the bar for a dance or two. Bar at Times Square is a rocking piano bar packed with wanna be singers and neighborhood atmosphere.
