Review of The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas

Updated on March 23, 2011

How far is The Orleans from the Strip?

It's the question everyone asks when the topic of The Orleans comes up. As it turns out, The Orleans is only about 1 mile from the Las Vegas Strip (Las Vegas Blvd. S). That's within walking distance if you're dedicated, or a short Las Vegas Taxi ride for the lazy. In addition, if you are willing to wait, there is a shuttle that goes from The Orleans to Bill's Gamblin' Hall and Saloon every 30 minutes from 9 in the morning until 12:30am. It's free, of course.

The Orleans opened in the mid 1990's and was considered the premier poker facility in Las Vegas until the game experienced a boom in the early 2000's and every casino on the Strip added a big poker room. Although seen as a local casino, the hotel has expanded in recent years and it's becoming a nice area for conventions and entertainment, with a facility that can be converted into an ice rink for hockey or figure skating shows. The Orleans was the location of George Carlin's final performance in 2008.

Room, rates, entertainment

At under 2,000 rooms, The Orleans is one of the smaller hotel resorts in Las Vegas. The individual rooms are very large even by Las Vegas standards, and have a small sitting room, making them more of a small suite than a big room. The Orleans also has some great deals on rooms, with some available for under $50 a night, which is great considering it's Las Vegas and it's so close to The Strip. Weekend rates are usually about double, and holiday rates can be as much as quadruple the standard weekday rate.

Booking online is a good idea because The Orleans offers all sorts of great room deals for those booking online, and these promotions are almost running constantly. A typical offer is something like "35% fall rates" or "free room upgrade". The Spa at Orleans is fantastic and you can often get really good deals booking a room and spa package together.

The only headliner with a full-time gig at The Orleans is Frank Sinatra Jr. I've never heard him, so I can't say if he's any good, but he was a legendary drunk on that episode of Family Guy.

I do recommend that visitors check out Brenden's Irish Pub, which features brews from around the world in a clean and usually quite setting.
