Can anyone suggest a very nice hotel close to most things - taking my 81 yr old Mom
Welcome to the forum. "Close" is a relative term in Vegas. Many things seem deceptively close until you actually start walking there. Does your Mom have any mobility issues? Would she use a scooter or wheelchair? Every hotel offers rooms that are an elevator ride away from the casino and in most instances several restaurants. It would be helpful if you gave more info as to what you are looking to do.
The most user friendly hotel as far not having to walk much would be Cromwell. No matter where you are in the hotel it is a short walk to the elevator and within seconds you are on the corner of Flamingo and the Strip. But that might not be a the best place to stay as far noise from the nightclub and limited restaurants.
If this was me, I'd do some research and try to identify key activities you'd like to participate in and select a hotel that has the most things possible on site. Vegas resorts are huge. Start with a place that tick off the most boxes.
I'd also consider a mobility scooter even if she's spry. When my own Mom was that age we took some trips and it just made her more comfortable. They're easy to get and very affordable in Vegas.
I agree with #3.
Now, from the perspective of a sr citizen, we like properties, such as the Mandalay Bay Complex. We will stay at the quieter Delano, or Four Seasons, and easily walk to say restaurants in the massive MB - or just cab/Uber to dine off-property.
Though for short business trips, we did Delano, and then Vaesar’s, and just dined in-property each night. While I did roam The Strip a bit, I basically never really left each.
The activities, which one desires, could well sway the choice.
Best of luck, and enjoy!
I'd consider the Bellagio or Wynn if that fits the budget. The atmosphere for both would appeal to her. Bellagio is more centrally located, but it is busier. Both are beautiful and have a more classic feel to them. That said, we take our 78 year old father out almost yearly and he refuses to stay anywhere but The Flamingo or Trop. So it depends on the person.
Response #5 was refreshing in that the father likes the Flamingo. With questions like yours,the most standard answers are typically the more expensive places to stay. Im a bit on the older side and also prefer the Flamingo. Cant beat the location,the beautiful garden area,the close proximity to the Linq Promenade and its many offerings and the nice steak house and food court area. Its also not too much of a walk to the strip.
Im just guessing here ,but if your mom is a typical senior,she probably wont feel the need to spend a fortune on a room and would feel it a waste. Have fun and very nice of you to take your mom.
Thank you- sorry- part of my question did get cut off. My Mom is 81 & just had a knee replacement which I’m guessing will still slow her down a few months ahead so was looking for what part of the strip would be better or easier to take in good shows & dinner for her. It is a gift & I will splurge but would like to make it comfortable and easy for her so the trip isn’t overwhelming as I’d like to keep her traveling in the next few years! Thanks again!
I also like the Paris suggestion due to the food options on property, and it has a hallway connecting it to Bally's. You are really getting 2 properties in one location. Also there is so much to see at do at CP which is also close to Mirage and Bellagio giving several close options.
Have either of you been to Vegas before? Do you want to be on the strip? We have friends who love being downtown, and it would be easy for her to navigate from casino to casino there...just not sure if you want to consider that option.
