Oyster Hotel Review
A chaotic megahotel with interesting Vegas history and cheap rates
The Circus Circus's reputation precedes it: This huge, chaotic hotel was immortalized in the book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever. Its casino is one oldest in town, dating back to 1968 -- which counts as real history in a city that consistently tears down the old to make way for the flashy and new.
On the north end of the Strip, a long walk or a short drive from the major hotel-casinos
Circus Circus Las Vegas is on the northern end of the Strip, about a 20-minute walk (or a short cab ride) away from the heart of the action. The area currently feels a little desolate, but two major luxury hotels slated to open in the vicinity in 2014 -- the Fontainebleau and the SLS -- may change that.
Many Las Vegas visitors want to explore all of the big properties along the Strip. Cabs are easy to find at virtually any time of day or night. A generally less expensive option is the Deuce, a double-decker bus that runs up and down the strip 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There's also a monorail system, which stops at Bally's, Caesars Palace, Harrah's, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Hilton, and the nearby Sahara station (the hotel itself closed). If you're traveling along the Strip with at least one other person, however, a cab is often the least expensive option.
Virtually every hotel on the Las Vegas Strip is a 10- to 15-minute cab ride from McCarran International Airport; the ride typically costs about $15.
