Hid­den gems, places ev­ery first timer should visit and more trea­sures from the concierge at the Westin Las Vegas.

Q: Tell me about one of your fa­vorite places to send first-time Vegas vis­i­tors.

A: I al­ways sug­gest walk­ing the Strip and check­ing out some of the ho­tel ar­chi­tec­ture. I love the Bel­la­gio Con­ser­va­tory, The High Roller at The Linq Prom­e­nade and I love rec­om­mend­ing Fre­mont Street Ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s al­ways a hit for any guests of all ages.

Q: Tell me about your fa­vorite hid­den gem in Las Vegas.

A: The Neon Mu­seum. It’s not re­ally hid­den but I def­i­nitely think it’s un­der­rated. This is per­fect for any­one be­cause the pic­tures are great and who doesn’t want a good In­sta­gram photo to post about your va­ca­tion? You get to see all the clas­sic Vegas ho­tel signs and get great photo ops while you’re there.

Q: Where should I eat if I want to cel­e­brate a spe­cial oc­ca­sion? How hard is it to get a reser­va­tion while I’m in Las Vegas?

A: I am go­ing to be ba­sic but I would rec­om­mend ei­ther the Eif­fel Tower be­cause you get the view of the Bel­la­gio Foun­tains or Top of the World at Strato­sphere be­cause what’s more ro­man­tic than a nice city view? Reser­va­tions aren’t too bad to get, nor­mally pretty easy if you make them in ad­vance.

Q: What’s the must-see show in Las Vegas right now?

A: “Zumanity” is still one of my fa­vorites and a good clas­sic. If you haven’t seen it, it is still a must-see. I love the hu­mor, I love the Cirque du Soleil per­for­mances.

Q: What tips do you give first-timers?

A: A great tip for any­one vis­it­ing Las Vegas is sug­gest­ing our great Strip trans­porta­tion ser­vice, the RTC bus. It’s in­ex­pen­sive and the best, in my opin­ion, way to get around Las Vegas. It’s also very easy to nav­i­gate and guests love when I sug­gest this be­cause they feel like I am sav­ing them tons of money.
