Before moving into our rental I'll be staying at the Flamingo for a few nights. I had just assumed there would be an airport shuttle, but there isn't. I'll have an infant with me so I really don't want to take a cab because 1 - I don't want to stand in line if there is one and 2 - I can't imagine a cab driver being happy about the amount of time it would take to install the car seat before we could leave.

Hopefully DP will arrive (driving) the day before I do, but if not, any ideas?

There is a shuttle bus service that makes runs to various hotels (i.e., it's not a "hotel specific" shuttle) that picks up passengers at a well-marked place at the airport.

But, generally a taxi is a better option (and just about as cheap). The taxi line is almost never very long these days (even in the "good old days" a few years ago with longer lines, it usually moved very quickly), and although I've never had an infant with me, most drivers are VERY cooperative on things, and I wouldn't expect a problem at all.

(I've never used "car services" or the like at the airport, so I can't comment on those.)

TAKE A CAB!

The shuttle took us over an hour, it's only $6 but you are with people from many hotels, and if yours is the last to be dropped off it can take a long time.

Though the cabs rip you off by taking a longer route, it's worth it.

Might be just as cheap to rent a car.

You don't mention if cost is an issue...is it or only convenience? If not, I would take a cab or use a car service. I used a car service on my last trip back to Las Vegas to take me and my little one back from the airport. I let my son hang out in the backseat (2 y/o) until I had the car seat installed...all was well. I also wanted to avoid the cab line because my little guy is pretty impatient.

Cost is only an issue if we are talking a 100+ difference. I will look into a car service, thanks!

Call Bell Limo and request a Lincoln Town Car to meed your flight. Well under $100 with tip. It is how we always get home to the NW if we don't have someone pick us up. Actually costs us the same or a little less than a cab.
