Casino review / Aliante Las Vegas
11 Nov 2008
The Aliante Station Hotel & Casino was opened in 2008, and is located in the north of Las Vegas. The casino is neither in Downtown Las Vegas, nor on the Strip, but it takes around twenty minutes by car to get to the Stratosphere if there is not too much traffic, and then you are already in the centre of the action in Las Vegas.
The casino is an excellent establishment and a good option for everyone who wants to experience a casino, but not the hustle and bustle of the Strip. The rates in the hotel are also very good. So, if you are now interested in reading what the casino has to offer you can continue reading our review about it.
