Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas

The view from the Tea Lounge at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. This non-gaming property offers beautiful views both inside and out.

We love to go to Las Vegas and gamble. We have a whole page of Las Vegas reviews, and a lot of our YouTube Shorts are about gambling rules. However, not every trip is about gambling. Sometimes we want a quieter and less crowded, and there are quite a few non-gaming hotels that try to provide that experience. One of the best is the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. The Waldorf is located right in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip, and Bill stayed there last month. Wondering if a non-gaming property like this might be for you? In this post, we talk about the room, the hotel bar, the pool and spa, the unique high tea experience, and the very few potential downsides.

Legacy Club at Circa Las Vegas

A firepit and cocktail on the outdoor patio of the Legacy Club at Circa Las Vegas? Yes, please!

Downtown Las Vegas has a lot of old school charm. That makes for a great trip, but it means you have to go to the Strip if you want an upscale bar or beautiful views. At least that is what it used to mean. With the addition of the Legacy Club, however, all that has changed. This bar sits on top of Circa, has a sophisticated ambiance, and has some of the best views in town. They also have the largest wall of whiskey I have seen in a long time.

Golden Nugget VIP Lounge

The Golden Nugget VIP Lounge in Las Vegas offers a premium service, although the offerings are much more limited than at other Vegas properties.

We (me and a group of buddies) had a great trip to Vegas last month and stayed downtown for the first time. We ate at excellent spots like Barry’s Downtown Prime and Pizza Rock. For this trip, I stayed in a Parlor Suite at the Golden Nugget. I always try to create a premium experience by paying for access to the VIP lounge wherever I am. The Golden Nugget VIP Lounge was available for a $60 set price for the stay, so I booked it. I received excellent service, but with the limited hours and amenities I am not sure I would do it again.

Barry’s Downtown Prime

Barry’s Downtown Prime is located in the Circa Hotel on the Fremont Street Experience.

Every time I go to Vegas, one of my highlights is having at least one nice steakhouse dinner. We stayed downtown last month, and for this trip decided to try Barry’s Downtown Prime. It is located in the Circa Hotel directly on the Fremont Street Experience. We enjoyed our experience very much, and we would certainly go back. On balance, though, I think there are steakhouses I prefer.

Pizza Rock Las Vegas

Detroit Style Pizza at Pizza Rock Las Vegas

When we go to Las Vegas, we usually stay on the Strip. Last month, however, we decided to stay downtown on the Fremont Street Experience. The first night we decided to go out for pizza, and I am glad we did. Pizza Rock Las Vegas was an easy walk, and they had both dine in and carryout options. We have a short video on the Dine Drink Vegas YouTube page if you want to check out the vibe of the space. If you want to dine-in, you should definitely make reservations. I don’t usually say this about a pizza joint, but you will also definitely want to think about what to order before you get there.
