We travel through Las Vegas twice a year so that's as many as of four stays at GVR/year and we've been staying here for several years so I consider myself a veteran guest of this hotel/resort.
The hotel itself is lovely, everything is clean, the rooms are great (hint: east tower is a little more Mediterranean in decor, the west tower is slightly more modern) but recently our casino host that rocks, Pete Scarpa Jr., has been putting us into some of the suites which we have really enjoyed. Pete never fails to personally greet us whenever we arrive and we're not that big of gamblers but it's always nice to receive such personal attention.
We started staying at GVR because we tow a boat along with us on vacation, and they have ample parking for vehicles with trailers, RV's and just about any sized vehicle. Their Security is top notch and we have never felt worried about leaving our packed boat in the parking lot.
This past month a cousin and myself stayed at GVR. It was her first visit and I was reminded through her fresh eyes as to why this property is so special. She really enjoyed the feeling of Las Vegas with all the lights and action, but at the same time there is a feeling of being so much more cared-for. The floor staff is incredible, we had some very interesting conversations with personable slot attendants that made us feel so welcome. We love the new T-Shirt $1 slot area just outside Sushi/Saki and the mini jackpots every few minutes were great too. I won over $500 in casino quick cash drawing during my stay just for having my player's card in a machine. She also appreciated not having to walk three miles to get from one end of the complex to another and she has decided her days of staying on the strip are officially over!
SO many places to eat in the hotel, there are independent chains at the food fair (Panda Chinese, Fat Burger, Frozen Yogurt etc) and outside in The District Shopping Mall. The restaurants onsite that are run by the hotel are varied: we really like the offerings at Tides Oyster Bar but there's everything from their award winning International Buffet to an Irish Pub, and upscale steak and Martini restaurant and everything in between including Italian and Japanese. A multi-screen movie theater completes the amenities. Still miss the Strip? No problem! There's a shuttle for that with a courteous and knowledgeable driver. They will also pick you up at the airport if you let them know you're coming. There is even a couple of rental cars right at the hotel available through the concierge if you want to take a day jaunt anywhere else. There are many bars with various themes on the property so you will never want for lack of some adult beverage time.
I am not a huge fan of sitting around a pool but they do have beautiful outdoors areas. There is a family-friendly sand beach pool, adult pools, lots of cabanas and varied seating areas.
The only negative (and this may change, given enough feedback) is that the management has made the decision to remove coffee machines from the rooms and have also done away with the coffee station in the lobby. This is happening more and more, I see it in other hotels too but IMO if the hotel cannot afford to offer complimentary coffee then at least put in a Keurig machine I can use a pod in, and offer pods in the in-room snack bar for purchase. I dislike having to get dressed in order to have a cup of coffee in the morning and I would much rather have the option to buy a cup in my room than have to traipse around the hotel with no makeup and my hair not done.
