You have probably stumbled upon the Stratosphere Hotel Casino resort if you have been checking out a hotel price comparison sites. They offer anyone wishing to stay in Vegas some very reasonable room rates, and as such tend to be listed high up on such sites when you select the lowest to highest price search criteria on such websites.
If you have visited such a website and the price you have selected looks appealing then please read on for we are going to let you know the good aspects and the bad aspects of staying at the Stratosphere!
The very first thing you will need to know about is the location of this property, it is located right at the northern end of the Strip, and as such you are going to be away from the other casinos on the Strip. However, depending on your own personal preferences that may not be a bad thing!
As such, if you do wish to stay there you will need to get one of the many shuttle buses from the airport, and also be aware that the Monorail does not go as far as the Stratosphere, which means if you do want to visit other casinos and use that mode of transport you will have to cross a couple of busy roads to get to the SLS Casino which is the nearest Monorail station.
However, having said that the Deuce Bus does stop right outside the Stratosphere and there are of course plenty of cabs you could hail if you do want to get out and about.
In fact, thanks to its position it is more or less halfway between the Strip and the Downtown area, so you will be able to get to and from those areas easily enough, however walking in the middle of summer is not something you will want to do due to the distance to other casinos and the heat of course!
What I have found very appealing about the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino is that if you are prepared to gamble their Ace Play player’s card will ensure you get the maximum of rewards. Also, if you hold a players card from any other Strip property and hold a high status on that card then the Stratosphere will match your VIP status!
You will find every imaginable casino game on their huge and sprawling gaming floor, and whilst not a casino that caters for the highest of high rollers, they do have high limit games on offer.
The room rates are reasonable, the resort fees are too and they are one of a dying breed of casinos that do not charge customers to park their cars in their parking lot!
If you do gamble then you will get all of the benefits from your gambling action, which will include free rooms and/or suites, access to exclusive slot tournaments, comped meals and shows and the higher you progress through the tiers of the Ace Play club the more points you will earn when compared with the points awarded to lower ranked players club members.
Whilst the surrounding area of the Stratosphere may not be attractive I have always found it to be a safe and very enjoyable place to visit, and the VIP Hosts will always go out of their way to ensure your gambling action is generously rewarded with lots of extras.
