The New and Improved!
July 4, 2011 12:46 pm

After almost 6 solid months of work, the completely remodeled is finally here! This launch marks a major new period for the site, bringing it to a whole new level on par with any other Vegas site on the Internet. The most obvious change is the entirely new interface including a super-sweet new logo inspired by the "other" famous Vegas sign. In addition to the new look and feel, there are a number of other changes as well. has existed in one form or another since 1997 largely without any advertising aside from Google ads, it became time to finally add banner advertising to the site. After long thought about how do to it right, I have decided to team up with MGM Resorts, who own 11 hotels on the Strip, to bring their latest room offers directly from the source instead of some unknown 3rd party room reservation service. I have always advocated booking rooms direct due to better cancellation policies and serving MGM's ads made it possible to reinforce that thought.

Quite a few other things have been added or updated as well...

  • There is now a Las Vegas Newswire on the left side which provides links to the latest Vegas news stories from a variety of sources and is updated throughout each day. Get you Vegas news fix all from one place!
  • All of the hotel room and pool slideshows have been redesigned for easier navigation and a better experience.
  • A complete update of hotel amenities and restaurants was completed.
  • A new weekly newsletter with the latest site news and reviews, a recap the week in Las Vegas plus latest unpublished room offers and other exclusive deals.
  • Ramped up the social media presence so you can now follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

It has been a privilege to run this site over the past 13+ years and I look forward to this new, exciting era for A huge thanks to the many frequent guests over the years and welcome to all new visitors who hopefully become frequent guests. Although much has changed, one thing that has not is the reason for why this site exists, one guy's love for Las Vegas. I read and reply to every comment so if you have any thoughts about the site or otherwise, that are even vaguely Vegas related, please feel free to contact me or comment below. As always, thanks for visiting!

Love the new site design, and the newsletter idea. A bit concerned about the exclusive ad arrangement with MGM Resorts. I have to wonder -- if you stay at an MGM hotel and have a crummy experience, will you hesitate to write it up? Conversely, will you hesitate to write nice things about MGM's competition? (The TI review seems pretty positive, at least.) Not meaning to question your integrity at all; but sometimes, it's hard to bite the hand that feeds you.

Hi Paul. Thanks! I hope people find the new design and the newsletter useful. As for the your concern, I definitely see the potential for conflict but fortunately, there are no editorial restrictions on anything I write imposed by MGM. If you read my Excalibur review, you will see that I had no problem letting everyone know about what was possibly the worst hotel experience of my life. Also, it is not an exclusive arrangement. I will be looking for more advertisers and in the meantime I am also running Google AdSense who has been placing LV Hilton, M Resort and Stratosphere ads. Thanks again for writing!

My concern about MGM Resorts and I have stayed many times in the past is the AWFUL $25.00 a night unrefundable RESORT FEE. I now stay at Harrahs properties or better yet a better deal The Golden Nugget!.
