My girlfriend and I stayed at this property on a corporate retreat, and I have to say we were really impressed! From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff bent over backwards to make our check-in experience a good one. Our room was clean and comfortable, with fresh linens and free wifi. The only detractor for the room was our "view" of the parking lot, but seeing as we hardly spent any time in the room, it wasn't really an issue.
Westin has done a nice job with this former Loews property. They could use a little bit more signage within the Lake Las Vegas neighborhood, but we managed to find it every time. The public areas are very well kept, and the split-level pool complete with water slide was a lot of fun. You'll definitely get your exercise navigating this property, and you can relax in a private cabana (for an additional fee). There is also a micro-beach with access into Lake Las Vegas. For a nominal charge, you can rent things like paddle boats / boards to head out onto the lake.
For us, the highlight of this property was the food. Being it a corporate retreat, we had the good fortune of sampling some of the best that the hotel kitchens had to offer, and they handled themselves well! Every meal was an "experience" with Starbucks brand coffee and everything else prepared fresh and conveniently labeled.
We also had the opportunity to check out the spa, which was worth every penny that we would have paid if the experience wasn't part of our corporate retreat. The staff was friendly, professional, and very good at their jobs. The locker-rooms are also over-stocked with everything you'd expect to find in a spa, plus a few surprises.
This resort is very family-friendly, and with it's location being 30-mintues from The Strip, it's far enough away that you can escape but close enough that you can easily get back. The hotel runs several free shuttles daily (you'll definitely want to plan ahead as shuttles do fill up quick). A cab ride from The Strip will set you back $75-$100 (car service is similarly priced).
Overall, going to the middle of the desert in the middle of August may seem a little backwards, but the amenities of this hotel made the trip absolutely worth it. Can't wait to go back someday!
Try to get a room with a view of the Lake if that's important to you, but it's really not ne...
