New York New York Hotel Review - Las Vegas

Updated on March 24, 2011

Part hotel, part casino, part amusement park

New York New York is one of the most unique hotel and casino resorts in Las Vegas. Everybody tries to have their own theme to make the experience different for their guests, but New York New York has chose a rather esoteric one. It's not just New York City, it's 1940's New York City. You'll notice that the skyline created by the separate towers that make up the hotel is missing several notable buildings that have been built since WWII, including the two World Trade Center towers. I guess that saved them from having to make a very difficult decision after 9/11.

In addition to the New York City theme, this hotel also features a popular roller coaster. I've included a video of the roller coaster ride at the bottom of this page. It's not the first roller coaster in Las Vegas, but it is the best one.

Location, rooms, and my review

New York New York is located on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip next to Excalibur and across the street from MGM. It's owned by MGM Mirage, which also owns the Luxor, Mandalay Bay, the Bellagio, and Treasure Island, among many others. Your Players Club card will work for all of those, which makes it a lot easier to build up credits for comps.

Rooms at New York-New York start at around $60. These rooms are rather small, but this is a fairly new hotel so they aren't as bad as the Luxor. If you want to be classy, I recommend the Ziggurat or Penthouse Suite, which can be had for under $250. I think these are among the best deals in Las Vegas, because these suites are HUGE! I'm talking 1,100 square feet or more.

For entertainment, New York New York has the Cirque du Soleil show Zumanity. There are also several nightclubs and bars, all of which attempt to express that New York City theme, including Coyote Ugly and Bar at Time Square, which creates a New Year's Eve atmosphere.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel because it's relatively inexpensive for Las Vegas, there is plenty to do, and a lot of very attractive young people stay there.

    I loved NY/NY. We spent some time there, ate at Gallagher's and saw Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil. It's a super-fun place.
