I am a healthcare IT professional and I am attending the Hyland OnBase OTTC 2011 Convention at Mandelay Bay but we don't want to stay on the strip -- been there done that too much. We are looking for a more relaxing resort with a pool and easy access, not a busy hotel. We are also looking for a place that is allowing pets. We have an older well behaved domestic short hair cat that would otherwise have to be kenneled and we don't want to do that for the week. Our normal house sitter is not available while we plan to be in Las Vegas. The cat is leash trained, very people friendly, litter box trained and is happy to just sleep the day away. We plan to bring extra bedding to use for us and the cat.
