Usually cheap and it's easy to walk to Mandalay Bay. The inclinators are a bit weird but I suppose that is part of the charm of staying at a room in a pyramid. :) Rooms are clean and fine, nothing of note either way. If you're going to stay there you might as well stay in the pyramid (vs. the towers) to get the full experience. Reasonable table minimums. If you want to see (more) beautiful people, just walk over to Mandalay or take a cab to Hard Rock or the Palms.
The hotel at Mandalay Bay ushers in a new model of understated luxury, affording guests a haven of sophistication …

Best combo of price, quality, atmosphere in my book. Fairly diverse crowd: families, young couples, large groups of young(er) men and women, middle-aged people. Still a pretty nice hotel and rarely feels pretentious unlike the Wynn for example. Great pool area and sports book. Decent selection of restaurants. Their standard buffet restaurant is cool because the back tables kind of look out over the pool area.
Since this eatery specializes in prime rib, come with a hearty appetite. There are four different cuts of prime …

Solid prime rib. You'll pay for it of course but it's hard (if not impossible) to find a cheap steakhouse ($5.99 surf-and-turf doesn't count) in Vegas. Slightly older clientele but not overly stuffy. There are homemade potato chips in the bar. Nice. My friend seems to really like their lobster tails. The Diamond Cut of prime rib is quite large.

Rumjungle is located in the Mandalay Bay. In the early/earlier part of the evening it's a restaurant and then later in the evening it becomes a bar/lounge. I believe if you are eating in the restaurant at the time of the transition then you get to stay for free. They serve a variety of caribbean-style (I think :)) dishes but the Fire Pit is the only way to go. The Fire Pit is an all-you-can-eat meal consisting of 6-8 different items (meant and fish) served on giant skewers. After you are served all of the various items, you can choose which ones you want additional servings of. The bacon-wrapped chicken and chorizo are/were favorites. The last time I went there was a couple of years ago and it was ~$45 I think. But I should point out that the quality seemed to go down over the years, but maybe I was just getting used to the food and novelty. :)
This is the only location of this fine restaurant in Las Vegas. The 635-seat, three-story eatery is actually two …

Solid steakhouse that is located in a nondescript strip mall right on the Strip. Prices are in line with other steakhouses in Vegas and elsewhere. The steaks were good but the side dishes seem to stick in my mind. The mac and cheese is great and realllly bad for you. :) All the other sides seem to be butter with ; I'm exaggerating a little but they were definitely on the super-rich side. But Morton's may be better simply because of their Godiva chocolate souffle. Good for groups.
Dining here is more like an inter-continental feast than a buffet in a Las Vegas hotel. Much more upscale than …

Most expensive buffet in Vegas (I think). Still fairly casual. Lots of seafood: shrimp (peeled cocktail, scampi, ceviche), sea bass, mahi mahi, crab legs. California Kobe beef. Nice selection of desserts. Not sure what the differences are during weekend meals. This is definitely worth a shot if you are a fan of buffets. Yes, it's a bit expensive for a buffet but the times of cheap (and good) buffets in Vegas are pretty much over.

Very good food, but not necessarily a top-shelf sushi restaurant. Signature dishes are fusion-ish. The Kobe beef is a must-try. $12-15/oz (1 oz is a few small bites). The last time I was there they prepared the Kobe beef two different ways: (1) seared and (2) carpaccio-like. Both are good but I prefer the seared method. House sake (cold) was good. The price adds up but that's kind of how it goes with sushi. You might see some celebs there.

I think the Fremont Street Experience has really lost whatever luster it might have had over the years. If you are a completist and want to see the different Vegas sights then check it out. Otherwise, it's probably not worth your time.
