We were so excited for our girls getaway. Little did we know taxi's would be necessary & very expensive. Even though the airport is right on top of the hotel, a taxi ride for 3 was over $15.00. The temperatures were around 116 all week, so the mile walk to the strip which may have been manageable in cooler weather, resulted in more cab rides. The shuttle was broke one day and when operating only runs until 8:00PM and has 3 stops right at the far end of the strip. We bought a 5 day bus pass for $20. It goes up & down the strip, with drop offs at every hotel, but probably because it was so hot, everyone else did this and you had to wait for 2-4 busses to even be able to get on. I've used the RTC before in Vegas and usually had no problem. It even goes to Fremont, which is a must for the laser shows. .
Club 36 was beautiful inside, clean, great beds, spacious accomodations. However, who ever designed the pool missed the boat big time! It is on the rooftop on the 4th floor, but it is enclosed and the sundeck is off to the side though doors. As hot as it gets in Vegas, the pool needs to be on the outside so you can relax in it. We got in the pool but it was claustrophobic and not a lot of fun. We went for an hour and never went back. Their restaurant, Amelia's was never open, however it did say Friday & Saturday 2-10, I think and we didn't go at that time, but it isn't something to count on. . Nor did we see the Bonefish restaurant supposedly onsite. The bagel place was OK for breakfast and their is a burger place called the GRIND, but if you want a burger, a better option is the famous BURGER BAR, in the Mandalay Bay, which you can see from here.
We arrived about 11:00AM and we got to check in, however when I asked for a room close to the pool (not knowing what a dud it was) I was told we were on the 4th floor. OK, I think, little did I realize we were the very farthest room away from the pool and it's a hike. The place is short on elevators, by the way, long hallways to manuever, it's a maze. When I went down and asked to be moved for the 3rd time, I think she realized we weren't going away and we were put on the 3rd floor by the elevator under the pool. The place didn't seem to be crowded at all, not a lot of cars in the parking lot and mind you there are several business on the bottom floor. Bluegreen has set the points on this way to high, we only went because they had a special for $49.95 a night thru 7-31-2010, must be having trouble filling it. In a few years the strip will probably catch up to it, but for now, it's out of the way, no shuttle service to the airport or major strip locations, cabs SUPER expensive and a pool that's no fun at all.
