Each of these hotels offer qualities that can help create a family friendly Las Vegas vacation. Generally, I would stay away from Downtown Las Vegas Hotels for kids as there is much less to entertain the children. Remember, Las Vegas is an adult playground so you might come in contact with smokers, drinkers and scantily clad party goers. If you can deal with that you should have a great time.
The Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino is at the upper end of what you might want to do for a family vacation. The wave pool and lazy river offer hours of fun and shark reef offers up close encounters with plenty of species of marine life. Fast food is scarce but a tram can take you to the Luxor or Excalibur in a matter of minutes.
