  • Hotel airport check-in: Many of the hotels on the Strip, including Bally's, Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Four Seasons, Harrah's, Imperial Palace, MGM Grand, Paris, Rio, TI, Westin, and the Wynn, offer a service enabling you to print your boarding pass at the hotel. Sometimes a fee applies. The Venetian offers a service, in conjunction with McCarran airport, called Airport SpeedCheck Advance, which allows guests to bypass airport lines by receiving their boarding passes and checking their luggage directly on the property. The service costs $20 and is available from 5:30 am to 3:30 pm daily, via a check-in desk located in the Convention Center. Regular airport rules and regulations apply: Passengers must present valid ID and drop off luggage at least three hours prior to departure. The Luxor and the Sahara offer a similar service called Bags To Go. Please click here for all the details.
  • McCarran's free Wi-Fi service gives travelers with Wi-Fi-enabled computers and PDAs unlimited high-speed access to the Internet 24/7 from virtually any public area of the airport. There are also nine “ReCharge Zones” at varying locations thr

bus to the strip - chessman (07/13/2014) - 5 out of 5 stars
You can also take the WAX [Westcliff Airport Express] bus from terminal 3 to the strip. It stops at the intersection of New York-New York, MGM, Tropicana, and Excaliber. You can take the CX [Centennial Express] bus from terminal 3 to the strip. It stops at the intersection of Wynn, Pallazo, TI, and the Fashion Show Mall.

Airport to Strip - take the bus - Carrie (06/16/2014) - 3 out of 5 stars
If your hotel doesn't have a free shuttle, and you don't have a lot of luggage to carry, taking the public bus is the cheapest and easiest way to get between the strip and the airport. It costs $2. I visit once or twice a year for work conventions, and I always take the 108 bus which gets me from the airport to the Convention Center area at the north end of the strip in about 25 minutes. 109 and WAX routes also depart from the airport. Just look up the Las Vegas bus schedules; it is very convenient, and doesn't usually take any longer than a taxi which costs 20 times as much!

Taxi - pelon4746 (01/15/2014) - 5 out of 5 stars
Take the public bus or a shuttle! I had a taxi driver, pretend to get lost and gave me the grand tour of Las Vegas that cost me $75 dollars for a trip, that should have been no more then $20 bucks! I hate TAXI's!
