  • The area is very nice, as can be seen throughout the hotel Strip in the city, some bars and restaurants, I went walking and walked single business by what walk several blocks at about 6 pm and although some areas are quite alone, do not spend anything, unlike consulted some people how to get to a certain destination , and most of them very friendly. There is a street in particular that I seemed very single and dirty that is the street in which this the intersection of a taqueria, by it others all very nice.
