“Nice, but pool & poor location a BIG disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

This hotel was amazing. The rooms were very clean and trendy. The king beds (which are almost too big to be considered kings) were heavenly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is an ABC store, a pizza shop, a Subway, a burger joint, and an Einstein's Bagels in the hotel (and a liquor store, but I didn't really pay attention to that)
It was also a very good price. We got 2 bedrooms for just around $200 a night. In suite A, there was a king bed and a pull out. In suite B, there was also a king bed and pull out, so it fit our family of 5 perfectly. There is a shuttle that comes around every hour and makes stops at MGM, Showcase Mall, and Monte Carlo. It is very close to the airport. We were on the 7th floor and could see the planes flying right above are heads, taking off, and landing, so if you are afraid of planes, you should suggest a bottom floor. It didn't affect my sleep, but I was very exhusted every night, so I don't think anything would have affected it. Light sleepers beware.
In all of the rooms, we had a view of the Mandalay Bay and the Luxor, so that was pretty cool :)
In conclusion: best hotel I've stayed at. We will most certainly be going back.

Ironically, Vegas is the closest city to some of the West's greatest parks and wilderness: Grand and Bryce Canyons, Zion and Yosemite parks, Escalante, Captiol Reef, Death Valley.... It also has some of the best car rental and air fares to access these gems.

This hotel offers reasonably priced new housekeeping units, complete with laundry facilities, right near the car rental agencies at the Vegas airport. After your adventure you can relax and clean your stuff before you leave for home. No smoking, no casino, no glitz. Quiet, unless the sound of airplanes bothers you. You can see them from the hotel too.

A few blocks away, on Naples and Paradise, is the Cottage Cafe, a charming Ethiopian restaurant.

Be aware that you will get charged extra for daily housekeeping, but the staff is up front about it. They will bring extra coffee, laundry soap, towels, etc., to your room if you ask for it.

Also, if you want a copy of your bill when you check out, be persistent, even though the young, hip clerk may look at you as though you have two heads.

The only "down side" is that you may get marketed to buy a time share (when you are asked to come to the lobby for your "free" gift). However, if you are a woman who is not with a spouse or has none, it works like silver cross does to deter Dracula. The opposite may be true for men.

Finally, there is a shuttle to the "Strip" from Noon to 6PM daily .

We have been to Club 36 several times.

The only negative thing I have to say about Club 36 is its location next to the airport. However the hotel is built really well because you don't even notice the planes when you are inside the building. The resort/hotel is laid out very well too and has many accommodations/amenities right there to make your stay very enjoyable. There are several nice places to eat, a liquor store and a convenience store, all in the lower level of the hotel.

The staff is awesome, the sun deck is nice (however outside where you hear planes coming into the airport), the pool area is very nice as well, and the exercise area is nicely set up too. The staff not only is very accommodating but keeps the place spotless. We have absolutely nothing to complain about with the resort itself.

Some people complained about being of the strip by a couple of blocks. I look at it as a hugh plus. It makes the resort more family friendly if you bring kids (which we never have) and is a more peaceful environment when you want to get away from the party for a few hours.

So in short I would recommend the resort to anyone and tell you it is well worth your consideration. A great place to stay when you are in Las Vegas.

The rooms were beautiful, clean, and a "home away from home". We were on the 7th floor and we could barely hear the airplanes flying over. We were not bothered by the sales people at all during our visit. They asked if we wanted to attend a presentation and we said "no", and that was the end of it. Love the fact that they have recycling for plastics and paper, and a convenient place to drop off the recyclables and trash. Maintenance and housekeeping were excellent. They do have a shuttle that drops off/picks up at the MGM and Monte Carlo from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. There is a convenience store right at the resort, plus a variety of restaurants, including Einstein Bagels, Subway, and pizza and burger joints, just to name a few. A wonderful resort to vacation at and have a great time. We definitely will return!

Stayed there end of Feb thru first of March 2010 with wife. Stayed in studio suite which was big enough for us. King size bed, nice size HD tv's, all up to date decor and kitchen area to offset some of the cost of the high priced strip. Had clean built in pool, hot tub and all accomodations were above average. Hotel bar was inside pool room and it make it pretty warm & muggy but tolerable. Place is new so I would expect the cleanliness we experienced. Also has some restaurants and convenience stores connected to same building which was nice. I stayed on 7th floor and can only say "baloney" to anyone complaining of airplanes being too loud. I think I heard 6 plans take off in 5 days and they were not very loud. The only two minor issues I had were it took a good 5 minutes to get hot water to my bathroom every morning. I called the front desk and they had a maintainence man there promptly but one of the circulation pumps was having an issue. Just had to wait. The other was at 2 a.m. our neighbors decided to cook something awful smelling and it leaked into our room. Must have shared the ventilation. Well worth the trip and plenty of ways to get to the strip if not in favor of walking the extra 3/4 mile.
