And now, it’s time to shine a little bit of light on the other end of the Las Vegas Strip -- you know, the other end that doesn’t include the Aria, Mandarin Oriental and the Cosmopolitan.
Circus Circus, the 3,767-room hotel-casino where you can see big-top performers, has just given about 1,900 of those rooms a face lift, with new decor, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi.
In searching rates, I found the redone rooms for as little as $60 a night for a Sunday-Tuesday stay (March 18-20) and as high as $222 for a Friday-Sunday stay (April 20-22). Info: Circus Circus, (800) 634-3450.
While you’re there, don’t be surprised if you run into Wile E. Coyote, the Road Runner or Pepe Le Pew -- at least, in spirit.
