Bally's - Las Vegas Hotel Review

Located roughly in the middle of The Strip, Bally's Las Vegas is probably best known for its prime location, gigantic casino, Sterling Sunday Brunch, Donn Arden's Jubilee! and the neon- covered movable walkway. One of the older casino-hotel properties, it is the former site of the MGM Grand. The name was changed to Bally's when the property was sold to Bally Entertainment Corporation in 1985.

Although Bally's is older, it is still popular, as the rooms are quite reasonably priced in comparison to the newer hotels. In fact, it is difficult to find negative comments about the property. According to various online reviews, many guests seem to like the fact that it is easy to book comp (free) rooms and/or upgrade to great rooms without the high prices. The rooms are plain but spacious and clean, and since most people are only interested in sleeping and showering in the room, they find Bally's to be the best option of The Strip hotels.

Connected to Paris, and surrounded by Bellagio, Caesars Palace, and The Mirage, Bally's holds the enviable position of being centrally located with easy access to all the sights of Vegas. It is also lucky enough to have a Monorail Station which means guests and tourists can come and go rather conveniently. Another feature that brings many to Bally's is the iconic brand Harley-Davidson. Bally's Avenue Shoppes is home to the Las Vegas Harley Davidson store which sells clothing, gear and accessories.

Regulars to Las Vegas anticipate the Sunday Sterling Brunch in Bally's Steakhouse. A tradition for twenty-five years, the brunch offering such treats as Sturgeon caviar, lobster, omelets, beef tenderloin, champagne, mimosas, and a grand selection of desserts has been name Best Brunch by several different media. For the other days of the week, there are both casual and fancier dining. Java Coast Café is a twenty-four seven coffee house serving fresh-daily baked goods, smoothies, specially blended coffees, and juices.

Entertainment can be found in the seventy-thousand square foot casino or in one of the lounges and bars including Tequila Bar & Grille, a Mexican sidewalk cantina. If you like game shows, The Price Is Right:Live will keep you busy as the audience participates by way of interactive touch pads. Just like the showcases on the real television show, the game gives away appliances, cars and vacations.

Most exciting of all Bally's entertainment is the famous topless revue. Having opened in 1981, Donn Arden's Jubilee! is a dazzling spectacle of gorgeous gowns designed by the master creator himself, Bob Mackie, one-hundred magnificently talented showgirls, fifty of which are topless dancers, beautiful singers, and million dollar sets.

There is no doubt that Bally's is still a fun place to visit.
