4stars  Fitzgerald's Regular
Been going to Fitzgerald's for several years. I'm not a big money player, but play quite a bit. With the Fitz players card, I am able to build up enough points for my meals. By being a regular, Fitzgerlad's sends me 3 comped room nights every month, along with $50 worth of match play vouchers. If you are on a budget Downtown is the place to stay. Have lots of money? Go stay on the strip and battle the crowds. I will admit the "scenery" is better on the Strip than Downtown. You get what you pay for, and Fitzgerald's is well worth the money.

  Dirty
In short, Terrible food, moldy rooms , I could tell my bags were rumaged through by one of their fine room attendants. Oh and 2 of the four evevators didn't work , so if you like climbing stairs or waiting in long lines to get up to the room,, this is the place for you

  Downtown is so..... trashy!
Well, the good thing and bad thing about downtown is that it is trashy. Maybe you like it, or maybe you don't.

   I went to Las Vegas in March 2005 for my Birthday.This is my 2nd time at the Fitzgerald. I guess you can see I like the Fitz.Our room was clean and comfortable . The service was nice. By the bar up on the 2nd floor you can sit outside at night and just relax as you look down on the strip and see all the bright lights. Las Vegas is like any big city you might have one or two bums that you might see, But you see that in any big city .I see it here in Houston.Down town strip always has cops on bikes or walking.So you don't have to be scared and just enjoy your self and have a good time. I know I did. For the price you pay at the Fitz you have more money to have fun on, Then spending it on some fancy Hotel that you will only sleep and get dressed in.So go to Las Vegas and have a good time and see for your self what you like and dislike.

  We arrived on a Friday night on a last minute binge to Vegas, and needless to say, there wasn't any rooms available anywhere. After calling 20+ Hotel/Casino's, the FITZ said they had a few rooms available. The Fitz isn't the newest hotel in Vegas, but I have to admit the room was clean, service was good, and the staff was extremely accomodating. Vegas really isn't the place to bring young children - EVERYONE needs to realize this. The Casino's have strict rules and regulations regarding children in the gaming area, and if you have a young child they really shouldn't be in there anyway, (in my opinion). So my wife and I basically took turns gambling & sightseeing with our son. What worked out best is in the evening, she would go to the room, and I was able to spend sometime at the tables. Basically if you're on a budget, and want a decent place to stay, try the FITZ.

  I stay at the Fitz every time I make the trip to Las Vegas. I always make it a point to spend time trying my luck at all of their table games. The casino staff is always courteous, helpful, and if you are not familiar with a betting option they will take the time to explain it to you. The table rates for all their games are very reasonable so if you have to watch your budget, you can stay within your means here. I eat most of my meals at Molly’s and really enjoy the breakfast buffet, They will make you any egg or omelet that you want and if you leave there hungry there is something wrong with you! I like to play the 50 game keno tickets for a dime a game overnight (so I can tell people that I gambled in my sleep in Las Vegas) and was pleasantly surprised to hit a 5 spot for $100 bucks two days in a row. It’s nice to start your day by winning money before you even eat breakfast! The hotel rooms are nothing fancy, but as Tom Bodet says “they all look the same with your eyes closed”. They are clean, comfortable and inexpensive. If you like to gamble, at a reasonable rate, with a casino staff that takes the time to make you feel at home, then the Fitz is the place for you! I am looking forward to my trip to Vegas this summer, because I know it’s going to be another great time there win, lose, or draw!

This was our third visit to Vegas and the first in the Fitz. Vegas has the cheapest rental cars, at least for overseas travellers, wich was the reason to book the Fitz via the net(§30)for our first night after a transatlantic flight and before starting our tour visiting some National Parks in neighboring states. Arriving there arround 6pm on Jan 09, 2003, we parked our car on the eighth floor of the parking garage, wich is free of charge for hotel guests. Check in at the front desk was swift, efficient and somewhat mechanized. We stayed in a clean, confortable and very well equipped double room facing the west. The casino was anything but crowded, the personell was friendly and caring and we really enjoyed the live performance of Michael Lee. Allthough we can not be considered gamblers in a Vegas-kinda-sense, we could not resist to drop a few nickels in one of the video poker slots. It took my wife abot 5 minutes to hit a jack pot worth $200 - (smile from ear to ear!)- enough lunch money for the rest of our trip. For an hour or so we went outside, watched one of the episodes of the Freemont Street Experience (worth seeing) and checked out some of the other casinos. We didn´t feel confortable in any of the other places, so we returned to the Fitz. The jetlag began wearing on us arround 11, we inhaled a chilly dog (yummy) from the deli and retired for the night. I don`t remember any details from the night, wich is a good sign, since I must have slept like a rock. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we had so far and more than rewarded us for the 3 minutes we had to wait for the elevator during rush hour.

Within our two weeks of sightseeing we stayed at this place two more nights with similar experiences. The Fitz was a very pleasent experience at a very reasonable price.

Told them I wanted to get high so they put us on the 28th floor! That was cool but there was some strange looking substance smeared on the windows I did not dare touch! The elevators take to long at this altitude, and the casino is kinda unexciting. The crowd at the bar looked like cheap snob phoneys too, But That's OK because there were not enough seats to go around anyway. The best part is that it is in the middle of Fremont St. where ther is better places to hang.

Just a cheap room on certain nights but not worth paying more than 40- for.

guess what folks? vegas isnt a brand spanking new city and every single casino isnt going to B built within the last 2 months and feature a day care center. vegas is an adult palyground. U say some of the casinos sit in neighborhoods characterized as scary, on the decline, filled with undesirables? well vegas is a town based on sex, alcohol, 10 minute weddings/divorces, and gambling. what do U expect?

Downtown is SOOOO nasty. Seriously: for every 3 hours you spend downtown,

you will see at least one "transient" person vomiting.

The parking garages are poorly lit, and if you look like

you have showered in the past month you immediately become a magnet for the

homeless/degenerate gamblers that populate the area. Yes the strip is "sanitized"

and there is a diff. between raunchy and dangerous, but downtown is both. The only

mugging I have EVER heard of in LV happened to a couple we know just one block from the LL

and I am not surprized. Please, Please, stay off-strip if you must, there are plenty

of places like the Coast casinos (barbary coast, gold coast, orleans) and

Station casinos (texas, boulder, palace) to try if you do not want a "hifalutin"

suite at Mandalay. I'm on a budget too, but I want to be able to enjoy my

vacation, not spend it giving police reports.

I really thought the food here was terrible (Do not eat the dinner buffet) and the gaming was lacking. They carried limited selection of games and the machines were terrible. The casino waitstaff was very pleasant, but the selection of beer was was small (The didn't even have Heineken). Th daquari bar was pretty lame. The drinks were completely watered down. The casino itself was filthy and had an eerie greenish glow. The slots were tight and the dealers at the table games were not friendly. I would recommend Binion's for table games while downtown and the Golden Nugget for slots.

I have stayed on the strip about 10 times over the years and wanted to try staying downtown for a change. It was great! The rooms were updated and had an iron, coffee maker, and safe. We were on the 29th floor looking west and had a great view. Downtown is fun and the Freemont street experience is worth watching each hour. The breakfast buffet at this hotel was very good. I would stay again and also recommend it for my friends. My visit was January 2002

We stayed at Fitzgeralds in August 2001. We thought it was great. Rooms were nice and very clean. The breakfast buffet at Molly's was great. Eggs, omlettes, pancakes and waffles all cooked to order. We found all the staff extremely friendly. And contrary to others comments, we found the blackjack dealers to be the friendliest of any we encountered. We were on the 6th floor and found no problems with the elevators. We much prefer staying downtown to the strip. The new hotels on the strip are way too big and its hard to keep track of everyone and meet up. Downtown is great because you can easily move from casino to casino. And the price is always right.
