Or Recargo or Plug Share.

I just made a reservation at Venetian since I understand they have charging stations in the public garage. After doing some research it seemed like most convenient solution.

Flex got it right. Venetian is the best for right now as far as staying and charging. I didn't really like it being left out in a public garage, but once you recover from the big drive, you don't need to leave it there.
If you want to shop, plug in at The shoppes at Mandalay bay. Its located in the valet section. The plug ins are self serve, so drive right up, plug in and rest assured its in a safe location. Those chargers are a bit old school tho. You have remember to 'start' the charge at the charging unit! It doesn't automatically start once you plug in like all the others seem to do.
Have fun!

Palazzo has two charging stations...217V, 70 amps.
Barstow is working much better and owner there is looking forward to the new charger installation he said.

I too have been trying to obtain SPECIFIC info on charging in Vegas-yes, there are numerous charging stations on the strip;
Aria north valet has charging, Cosmo has supercharges but are ROADSTER and need very expensive adapters,
Mandalay shops, City Center, Venetian, Palazzo all have chargers but NO ONE can tell me if they are J1772 or NEMA 14-50.
Guess ill just have to plug her in at my sisters house!
We're leaving next Thursday and will report upon return.
Anybody with details please advise

Still Grinning ;-)

A lot of the major hotels on the Strip have charging stations, call the hotel you are staying at ask what kind they have. Also Nevada Power on West Sahara has lots of charging stations. Presently I don't know of any Supercharging stations accept those at private Tesla owner homes. Tesla will open a Service Center sometime in May, off the Strip and I would guess they will have a Supercharging station.

Don't forget the KOA next to Circus Circus. $20 for 24 hour "storage" at a RV spot with a NEMA 14-50. Worked perfectly during International CES in January when all the hotel charge stations were in use.

I just watched a video of another reporter taking a road trip to Vegas, and he called Tesla and they gave him the name of a hotel that has a charging station that charges at roughly double the rate of a standard J1772 charger. Call Tesla, I'm sure they will help.

I think you are referring to the KBB video trip from LA to Las Vegas and back. And the hotel was the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino in Henderson Nevada. From the video you can see that they have a HPWC installed there. The link below will take you to the relevant portion of the video:

Perhaps the most convenient spot is the 6th floor of the Venetian parking garage, which has two J1772 chargers and a Roadster HPC. But there are at least a few Tesla drivers going to Vegas on the weekends these days, so it can fill up (as can all the other public chargers). It's good to have a backup charging plan, such as the Circus Circus KOA or the Best Western an hour away in Pahrump (it has an on-site RV park).

The casinos need more chargers!

Thanks Alex! The thought of finding that video again made my head ache...

Try one of the six free charge point chargers at the county building on grand central parkway west of downtown. It's across the street from an outlet mall and about a 10-15 minute walk to Fremont street. I've used them a few times. There has never been anyone there and they provide a reliable 30 amps. The site is listed on Recargo and Plug Share.

Palazzo has 2x Roadster chargers that appeared functional, but I didn't have an adaptor :(

It was in the valet area, but no issues getting let in there. The whole underground area was full of stuff... like, hotel spares. Fairly surreal.
