In the last ten years I have probably gone to Las Vegas at least ten times and gambled a total of ten dollars. I go to Las Vegas for the food, not the gambling, and whenever I can get a good deal on a room in a good hotel, it's worth a trip for me to just go there to eat.
My favorite Hotel is the Wynn and my favorite restaurant is probably the Capital Grille; but the new Palazzo (the new tower that is a super luxurious addition to the Venetian) just opened and they are offering a deal for their suites starting at just $239 a night with a $100 dining credit per day! Just click on the link or call them with promo code PPDIN08. There are restaurants by Puck, Trotter, and Lagasse among the nine James Beard award winning restaurants at the Venetian; I like Morel's and Solara, but after reading Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain, I am dying to try Sushisamba on my next trip (even though the original owners are no longer part of the enterprise).
Stay in a nice hotel and get $100 per day for food? If this is a dream, please don't wake me.
