Las Vegas in January is the worst. It is empty and boring as hell to visit. Sure a cheap hotel and flight is nice to have but it is not the same as spring time when the strip is a happening place to be. We went to all the main casinos and it was just too quiet and we felt out of place.
The upside is every casino we went to they were practically throwing themselves at us for their business. We had so much to drink it was ridiculous and we got whatever we asked for including top shelf liquor. This lasted for a good 2 days before we decided we drank too much and asked for the buffet vouchers instead.
Overall we have to give credit where it is due and the Luxor was the best place by far and one of the nicest and cleanest hotels we have ever been in. That place is just quality from the top of the pyramid down.
We didn't see any famous poker players but overall a fun trip in the middle of January.
