Sure, it's not ON the actual strip (even though it is on the same street as the strip, aka 'Las Vegas BLVD", but even that has its benefits. It's quieter, and you can relax by the pool a lot more. There's more room, since it's a suite, not just a hotel room.
here's the breakdown...
There are 10 buildings in the complex, some are older than others. We were in the Primrose building. The decor theme is "desert sunset". Some people think the decor looks dated, I just think that it looks too matchy-matchy and hotel-ish. I wouldn't decorate my house like that, but when I'm on vacation I don't really care if the curtains are my favorite colour or not. Suite A and B are exactly the same. Each have a full kitchen (stove and oven, fridge, toaster, coffee-maker, all the pots, pans, plates, glasses that you'll need), a pull-out couch that turns into a queen bed in the living room (where you'll also find a TV and DVD player), and a bedroom with a king bed and a jet tub. The washroom has a large shower stall and two sinks. There are also washer and dryer sets in each suite, in a closet by the dining room (which seats 4). You have plenty of towels, and we got small toiletries when we checked in.
This reminds me- after check-in, when we went to get our parking pass, we were asked if we wanted to attend a "presentation" and get cash or show tickets in exchange. We knew they would try to sell us timeshare, but we wanted to see Ka (excellent show, and by attending the presentation we got tickets), and so we went. It took just over an hour. We had breakfast while we were told the details (we weren't interested), and when they figured out that we weren't going to buy anything they just walked off. I thought it was a bit rude of them, but it's not like I wanted to make the experience longer. Of course, you have the option of declining the presentation completely. We knew what we were getting ourselves into, and it was worth it for us.
Internet is available in the rooms, but it's $50 for the week. I didn't want internet anyways, I like to be detached from technology when I'm on vacation. However, if you need to check emails from time to time, keep in mind that there is an internet lounge in the lobby (free), and if you go to IHOP (it's open 24/7) they also have free WiFi. We liked to go there for breakfast or late night dining, and would check whatever we needed on our iPods while we were there.
I recommend a car to fully enjoy the area. There is a shuttle that can take you places, but it's $16 per person per day, so when you do the math, it might end up cheaper and more convenient (the shuttle stops running around midnight). Cabs are very expensive around that area, so I'd try to stay away from them as much as I could.
There is also a casino called South Point across the street. We went there because they have many restaurants (some open even in the middle of the night), and we got a coupon book from Grandview for $20 free slot play, free wine with dinner, etc. On nights where you don't feel like going all the way to the strip, South Point is a good place to kill some time.
We didn't have any issues with the staff, they were all efficient and helpful.
Overall, it was a good vacation and I am going to keep going to the Grandview every time I go to Vegas.
Oh... I forgot to mention that they're planning on building 8 more buildings, so if you decide to go, double-check to make sure construction won't be an issue (noise and all that stuff). Enjoy!
