Choosing a hotel with a pool is always a wise choice especially if you have children. Casino hotels offer so many specials on rooms your best bet is to research them on the internet prior to your trip and book in advance (although I have never failed to find a room last minute, it stinks to be looking when tired from travel). If you are traveling with your family, you may have to whisk the children through a casino to get to your rooms. The Excalibur is one of my children’s favorite hotels even though I find the rooms a bit unimaginative myself (it could be the arcade in the Excalibur they find so appealing!), and their prices are always within my non-budget.
