You can see the entire strip from the plane during landing so have your camera ready! It's really neat to see the pyramid and giant Ferris Wheel. The airport was clean and had an... read more

If you're a smoker, good luck and long walk finding places to smoke. Prices are outrageous, unless you find Wendy's LOL I recommend the $5.09 baked potato.

As unpopular as airports are to me, this one is tops. Easily navigable with many reasonable dining options as opposed to the price-gouging ones. Favorite amenity is the smoking area. If they can have one, why must all of the others be dictatorial and arrogant towards travelers with their policies? Easily-facilitated ground transportation options. This is the gem of these...

You can see the entire strip from the plane during landing so have your camera ready! It's really neat to see the pyramid and giant Ferris Wheel. The airport was clean and had an easy layout. Plenty of places to grab food but overpriced, like any airport. The McDonald's has a limited menu. Employees were polite.

A group of us visit Las Vegas yearly. We have never had a pleasant experience with the TSA employees at this airport. Our group is from the Boston area (people think Bostonians are rude), never have I been treated so disrespectfully from any TSA agent at Logan airport. I thought the first, second, even the third time we encountered this... More

It starts wirh the rental car return. Very far from the terminal, had to wait 20 minutes for a shuttle as they don't have enough, herded around the waiting area like cattle. In the terminal, the waiting areas do not have enough seats and there is no seating with power outlets for charging electronics.

Don't arrive early and expect to get a decent meal before flying. Highly overpriced Bagels and burritos. Nothing like I'm used to. B GATE IS THE PITs. Not enough seats either and the circular design crams everyone together. No choice but know that there is no food to speak of close to B 12 Gates.

Horrible , Unorganized, Some security people were impolite, not smart, super-slow, junk food everywhere, they broke my laptop. They have smoking rooms but still the whole area smells like a cheap motel. Worst of all there are slot machines ready to grab your money till the very end of your stay in Vegas. Transportation is chaotic even in the early... More

Most certainly our favorite, as much as we dislike airports. One of the few, if any others, who offer a smoking room. Easy to navigate with many food options. If only all others would follow their example. Would ease the drudgery of travel. Five stars all the way.

I arrived quite early for my flight and I was afraid I was going to be bored. There is no way you could be board here with all the gaming going on! There were many choices for meals to take on the plane or just to spend time at having your meal there. I also noticed many gift shops. I... More

We frequent LAS usually once a year and I don't think I ever commented on the airport, this is one of the cleanest and friendliest we've been to (we been to dozens), the TSA staff has personalities and don't function like robots, friendly folks. Everyone we encountered at LAS was outgoing and even the restrooms were always clean, something you... More
