Begin your trip with breakfast at the hotel’s Terrace Room
, an opulent dining area dating back to 1916 that serves up a variety of benedicts, grilled dishes and breakfast entrees. Consider the Art of Breakfast buffet, which offers made-to-order eggs and omelets, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, sausage and bacon, yogurt, cereals, artisan breads and pastries, smoked salmon and cereals.
Another option about a mile from the hotel is DeLuca’s Diner, a staple breakfast spot located in the Strip District. This popular spot, featured on Travel Channel’s
"Man Vs. Food," is worth the wait for menu items that include breakfast burritos, crepes, fancy pancakes, waffle sundaes, oversized omelets and the famous “mixed grill.”
While in the Strip District, make sure to take the time to shop around. Originally an industrial neighborhood, the area has been revamped, with specialty stores and international vendors moving in to the iconic brick buildings. With grocers from Italy, Poland, Asia and the Middle East, you’ll find every product you need from abroad, while other retail stores sell varied teas, cookware, jewelry, chocolate and throwback candies, spices, dried flowers, clothing, metal art and more.
