Bally's Las Vegas (a Harrah's Entertainment property) originally opened as the MGM Grand in 1973. The name was changed to Bally's after a change in ownership in 1985, and MGM moved to the Marina Hotel (which is now a segment of the MGM Grand.)

Every visitor to Las Vegas has probably seen the impressive neon display (shown above) in front of Bally's on Las Vegas Blvd. A pedestrian conveyor belt takes you to the casino through giant neon rings that change from red to green to blue to violet.

The viewpoint above is from about halfway to the casino looking west towards Las Vegas Blvd. and the Bellagio after going up an escalator at the end of the first conveyor belt segment. This is a compilation of four separate photos.

I'm not sure if Bally's Las Vegas resort has any relation to the company that used to make pinball machines, or the Bally's Fitness chain. Probably not... otherwise there would be a huge pinball arcade or exercise facility at Bally's Las Vegas. I stayed there in March 2005 and despite the almost budget price, I have no complaints or anything undesirable to point out about Bally's. The rooms are larger than average; nothing fancy at all but just as nice as Monte Carlo, Treasure Island, or Luxor (I've been a guest at those properties also). Bally's is connected to Paris with an indoor tunnel. Bally's casino is small in comparison to other strip resorts, but you're in close walking distance to half a dozen other casinos; so this should not be an influence in deciding whether or not to choose Bally's as your Las Vegas vacation home.

If you get a room facing south your view may look like this - Paris next door, then Planet Hollywood (which was still the Aladdin in this photo), with NY NY and Mandalay Bay in the distance.
