I usually stay at the California Hotel and spend most of my time playing at Main Street. I like the high ceilings and décor, and with 20X odds at the craps tables, it's the place to be. The dealers here are as a group are very friendly. The Triple 7 Brewpub is an outstanding place to eat and have a beer. Haven't had the buffet in a few months, but it has always been a very good deal for the big eater. The bridge from the Cal to Main Street Station is a godsend, especially for this last trip where the mercury peaked at 115. And, lastly, this part of Las Vegas is very accessible from the freeway. Parking's usually not a problem unless there's something unusual going on at Fremont Street. As is the case with the California Hotel, Main Street Station caters to locals from Hawaii.
