Hotel San Remo - home of the $4.95 Steak and Eggs, as recommended by Rechaad and Candy (They took the photo of me standing at the edge of the canyon yesterday.)
It would have been a long walk to here from Circus Circus, so I took the bus most of the way, and then wandered around taking a few photos in the area. I didn't realise that I was taking so many photos until I noticed that I had actually shot an entire roll before breakfast!
The Hotel was set back a couple of hundred yard from The Strip, but the short walk was worth it. The steak was good, as was the coffee.
The pond/lake in front of the hotel is the setting for the famous musical fountain show. A very simple idea, but well executed - the fountains come on and off in time to the music.
New York New York and Paris, Las Vegas. See two famous landmarks within a short walk of each other - cuts out thousands of miles of travelling.
The roller coaster at NYNY can be seen behind the Statue of Liberty - this was the scariest, most painful roller coaster ride I have been on - it is fast, with several sharp turns where you get thrown violently from side to side. Expensive at $10 per ride, but I had to do it just the once!

New York New York.
