Travel Tips for Getting Around Vegas
Las Vegas Monorail: The Riviera is located just north of the LVH (Las Vegas Hilton) Monorail stop. The monorail extends as far south as the MGM Grand Hotel, making it simple and inexpensive to go a show, concert, or great restaurant on The Strip. Purchase a single ride (5$), one day pass ($12), or three-day pass ($28). Learn more about the monorail.
Parking: The Riviera offers free parking for hotel guests. In addition, most major Las Vegas hotels offer FREE parking. You can self-park or pull up to the front of the hotel for valet parking.
Car Rental: Renting a car makes sense if you want to travel outside of the city to view the Hoover Dam or other attractions (see below). You can rent a car at the airport or at the Hertz car rental desk located within the Riviera. Call 702-697-4090 to make a reservation. The Hertz car rental desk is open seven days a week from 7 a.m.–12 p.m. and 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
