We stayed at the Tuscany last weekend. It's just a few blocks off the strip very close to Bally's, Ceasars, Bellagio, Paris, Planet Hollywood. It would be a bit of a walk to the strip but very quick by car. We usually parked at Planet Hollywood Miracle Mile Mall or Ceasar's and walked from there. The hotel is great! The rooms are clean and simple and very large with a kitchen with a sink and a refrigerator but no microwave. Parking is very easy with no hassles. Security patrolled the parking lots often. I felt very safe there. If you are in the bottom level rooms, sometimes you can hear the people above you so if you want a real quiet room, I would recommend the 2nd floor. Rooms have either two double beds or one king. No double queens. The fitness room is nice with two treadmills, an eliptical and two bikes and weights. They had a couple more treadmills that were not working. They have a heated lap pool (only for laps, not for leisure swimming) year round and a jacuzzi at the fitness center. There is another very pretty pool (not year round) with a jacuzzi (jacuzzi is year round). Overall, the experience was great. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Three nights (Thurs, Fri, Sat) with all of the room charges, taxes and fees came to approx. $200.00 for three nights. Great value, clean rooms, no fuss. I liked that you didn't need to go through a casino to get from your room to the car.
