This page from my master list of all Las Vegas articles I wrote while developing Vanabode as the best travel vehicle for cheap easy long term road trips.
New York New York Hotel Las Vegas
New York, New York Hotel Las Vegas is well-situated on the Strip with easy access to the Excalibur, the "Monte Carlo," the MGM Grand and the "Tropicana." Sky bridges make getting from one casino to the other safe and fast. Once in the Excalibur, you can walk to the Luxor and Mandalay Bay without ever going outside. Be sure to ask for a room on the highest floor possible if not Vanabode camping here. The roller coaster runs through the casino and can be heard slightly in the rooms on the lower floors.
If you haven't seen it, it's modeled after New York City landmarks. Out front, the New York harbor (pool size) has been replicated with the Statue of Liberty (half size), the Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central Terminal and other well-known landmarks. The architecture of the hotel resembles New York City skyscrapers with smaller duplications of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.

The New York, New York Hotel Las Vegas is a very upbeat and lively casino. The casino floor has plenty of action and drink service is fast and friendly. It's not as huge as the Venetian or Caesar's Palace so it's fairly easy to navigate and find places to eat as well as the elevator to your room.
Rooms are very reasonably priced considering the location on the Strip. There are many room options to choose from: the Skyline, Park Avenue Deluxe, Broadway Deluxe, Spa Deluxe, Marquis Suite, Players Suite and Ziggurat Suite. Rooms range from 300 square feet in the Skyline to 1,100 square feet in the Ziggurat Suite. Check-in is quick and staff is friendly and accommodating. Like all major casinos in Vegas, they are trained to ask you if you want to upgrade. If it's a room with a view of the Strip, I recommend it and especially if it's on a higher floor. Bathrooms typically only have a shower tub combo so if you're looking for a full bath to soak in, you want to ask for the Broadway Deluxe or the Spa Deluxe room.
Make sure your room is above the roller coaster that runs until 11 pm. If you don't want to spend the money at Starbucks every morning it could be cheaper to buy a coffee maker locally. Rooms are contemporary and clean with an Art Deco look. They are all equipped with Internet access and electronic safes. Beds are very comfortable and water pressure in the showers is very good.
Overview: Mediocre strip casino hotel operation
The casino area is known as Central Park and the Village Eateries are reproductions of famous Greenwich Village. The atmosphere in the casino is high-energy and intense just like New York City. The casino floor is not as vast as the Venetian but it gets busy when you want to play the slots and table games, so start gaming early. Drink service is timely and waitresses are generous if you tip well.
The ESPN Zone at the New York, New York Hotel in Las Vegas is geared for sports entertainment. If you've visited other ESPN Zones around the country you know they are large sport-themed restaurants with video arcades, TV studios and even radio studios. This is where you go to get rowdy, eat some all-American food at the Studio Grill and sit back in a lazy-boy chair with access to all your favorite sports games on multiple TVs.
The Ziggurat Suite is the ultimate room at the New York, New York Hotel Las Vegas. It comes with a wet bar, his and her closets, a dining table and sitting area and a luxurious Jacuzzi. Showers are oversized and you'll enjoy his and her sinks and the separate vanity area. The location, price and comfort combo can't be beat if you choose to spend more than $20 a day like we do traveling. at the New York, New York Hotel Las Vegas.
