Where to Stay
Where you choose to stay will depend on the type of experience you’re looking to have while in town. On busy holiday weekends, we believe there is a trifecta of features that you should seek out to procure the perfect headquarters for your needs – proximity (close to the action but still far enough to retreat and recoup each day is ideal), good dining and entertainment for when you want to stay in or have a nightcap, and value (service/amenities + cost/affordability).
Where to eat
World-class entertainment isn’t the only thing Las Vegas is known for. The city has quickly become a highly revered destination for foodies everywhere. From celebrity chef-owned concepts on the Strip to the charm of old-Vegas steakhouses and farm-to-table eateries, there is something for every taste profile.
While there are some fantastic options available on the Strip, the influx of gourmet options that has sprung up in Downtown Las Vegas over the last few years shouldn’t go unnoticed. If you’re the type of traveler that likes to seek out a “local experience” by finding some of the best neighborhood spots while in town, then you simply cannot pass these up.
For some of our personal recommendations, read any of our blogs on the subject. We tend to dine out in our own backyard quite often!

Getting around in Las Vegas is becoming easier every year. With cab stands at every major hotel casino, monorails and the arrival of Uber, it has never been easier to get around the city worry-free. If you do plan to use Uber, let us take care of your ride! Sign up for Uber at Uber.com/app using promo code PLAZALV for $15 off your first ride! (Valid for first time riders only)
While monorails cut out the traffic element, they’re mostly only connected between specific properties on the Strip, so you’ll still have to plan for longer commute times during Memorial Day Weekend if you’re heading directly into the action.
Parking is anywhere from free to extremely affordable around town, but be sure to have a designated driver if you’re taking your own car or driving a rental. In addition to wanting to ensure that everyone has a safe experience while in town, we can guarantee that the beefed up police force will be on high alert.
