This mellower version of Vegas still offers plenty of lodging options — just ones with less of an emphasis on swank design, fine dining, and wild entertainment than their Strip counterparts. Here are the top affordable places to stay off the Vegas Strip. As with many time-share properties, the appeal of this room hotel is in its massive, apartment-style suites.

Things were in full swing when I arrived at the Fremont Street Experiencea covered outdoor street fair that functions as the throbbing party vein of downtown Las Vegas. Occasional screams emanated from above as kids whizzed by on a zip line that runs the length of the street 12 stories up. Young women in barely-there outfits danced on bars all along the street, peddling alcoholic slushies; performance artists played bucket drums, donned moderately soiled super hero costumes and hustled for photographs or covered themselves in silver body paint and stood perfectly still, moving only when someone tipped them.
Can someone recommend a decent hotel just a couple blocks off the strip, but yet still close enough to walk to? Given the geography, off the strip and walkable are kind of contradictory. Only thing I can think of that qualifies is the Westin.
Start off at the Palms, wind your way through the functioning arcade right out of the s and find the soda machine in the back. The large, eye-catching space screams gritty SoHo NYC, with graffiti, bright colors, and a fab street art collection. The menu features fresh, organic, innovative fare.
A lot of people tell me they hate Las Vegas or never want to go. The excuses are numerous, because Las Vegas is always portrayed through the glitz and glamour of the Strip. I hardly ever leave.
