    I'm heading to Vegas tomorrow (Friday) morning and need to get some work done midday before I'll be able to check into my room. I know the airport is really convenient for work, but I'll likely be on the strip. Anyone have any recommendations on places that are quiet/have free wifi? This will likely be a video chat, so flashy lights and casino noises probably aren't an option. At worst, I'll hang back at the airport and stake out an area at one of the lounges there.

    The conventions areas are empty and quiet when there aren't any conferences going on...

    If it wasn't for the need for privacy from a video chat, I'd suggest the business center at whatever property you're staying.

    There are plenty of casino-less properties on the strip (THE hotel, Vdara, Four Seasons, etc) but I'm not sure that you'd be able to just "hang out" and work at the lobby and get any work done. I don't know if Regus or similar company has space available in the area, assuming you're a member.

    There's a Regus location at the Howard Hughes center which is fairly convenient to staying on/near the strip. I haven't tried out their business lounge but have been meaning to with my free membership. Would like to hear from anyone who has tried this Regus location (or any other) with their free membership to hear whether they like the service.

    The lobby in the Mandarin was fairly quiet.

    I found the Cafe and Vdara lobby to be pretty good. Free, reasonably fast wifi and moderately priced food. Plus no casino means little traffic and noise, save for the house music

    I used one of their downtown Boston locations a few weeks ago. It was adequate but unimpressive, and I didn't want to linger for long: a windowless interior room with four or five chairs, a phone, wireless, and access to a kitchen. There were no desks or cubicles. Finding it would have been tricky without the specific suite number in this high-rise -- I don't recall an entry for it on the building directory. Getting in was low-drama.

    The overall office suite was pretty busy, but I saw no one else using the business lounge.
