I was confused by the name of the property. I didn't feel like it should be called a Chateau because that led me to believe there would be some French influences...there were not. The villas are very generic in the sense that they look very typically "Marriott". They were large in size. My four adult daughters & I stayed in a two bedroom/two bath for seven days.The rooms were adequate size for the 5 of us. I was not bugged to attend the time-share presentation because before I arrived I told the Marriott representative who telephoned me that my husband would not be joining me for the trip. I did get a strip view room after ASKING the girl at the desk if there was any possible way to get one...We stayed on the 10th floor. We had a nice strip view (as much of the strip as you can see from the property.) Upon check-in, no one explained to me how trash pick-up worked at this property. I called the desk and someone came up to collect our trash one day. Another time I called the desk, the person answering told me to deposit it down the hall into the room marked TRASH. We did not notice this room before she mentioned it!
We washed our towels daily. The in-room dryer took hours to dry a load. Bring your own dryer sheets & laundry detergent if you plan on doing laundry.( I like the pod type detergent for trips & small washer loads.) The first night, I walked down to the Marketplace because we were too tired to leave the hotel for dinner. I paid a fortune for a frozen pizza and some drinks there. Not to mention a travel size toothpaste was almost $3 at the Marketplace. It certainly was convenient, but you pay for that convenience. I really missed not having a restaurant on site. My older daughters were bummed that there was no casino attached to the property. The valet for the property was usually pretty quick. We waited no longer than 10 minutes each time we needed our vehicle. We tried an interesting, old Casino/Cafe at a nearby property called Ellis Island. It is one of those places I've looked at each time I've visited Vegas over the years, and never ventured into. It is a micro-brewery (They brew their own Root Beer, too). We enjoyed our meal there, and won a little on the FREE play we got for signing up for their player's card, too.
We visited the MOB Museum- downtown. A very comprehensive-interactive experience. It was almost $75 for the 5 of us to enter the museum, plus $5 for parking. We ate downtown at the Golden Nugget in the Chart House Restaurant. We got parking validated in the restaurant. On the strip, a meal to note was at The Quad Hotel/Casino in the Hash House a-Go-Go. Everyone enjoyed the food. We saw Frank Marino's show called DIVAS. It is a drag show. I asked for tickets at the Marriott's Concierge's Desk. They gave us discounted tickets. I think it cost just under $150 for four of us to sit on the main floor during the show. I have seen this show a few times in the past. It is always an entertaining evening! We drove out to the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. It is VERY short. Not much to see. We got two samples and then we were led into a large gift shop. Pricey chocolate. Not much of a "tour". We spent a morning/afternoon at the North Outlets. The Marriott is just minutes away from the airport and also just a few miles away from Premium Outlets. My daughters found Deals at the COACH store. One evening, two of my daughters walked across the street to Planet Hollywood to get food from Earl of Sandwich. The sandwiches were decent and reasonably priced. I was recovering from a knee surgery, so this trip was about relaxing. The villa was comfortable. I enjoyed the in-room large tub. The dual head shower was also a nice feature in the larger side of the villa. One thing that was annoying was the nightly telephone message from the desk detailing the upcoming day's events. The events were listed on the paperwork given to us upon check-in. The message button would flash each night with this message. The person reading the message had a very thick accent, so understanding what she was saying was difficult. I found this a little odd. I called the desk about a light that was out in the room. It was repaired very quickly- while we were out. The engineer left us chocolates and his card after the repair was completed.We shopped for groceries at nearby Von's, & Walmart. Cooking in the room is challenging since it is not even supplied with salt & pepper. I booked this property on Interval International. It was an exchange. I got two weeks in two bedroom Marriott properties in exchange for a week of our Starwood timeshare( 2 bedrm Westin/Kauai). I was also offered a "deal" before checking out for an additional stay. It was a recorded message left the night before we checked out. Check out was strange. The nightly message noted that we could check out by phone by dialing *22. Well, I dialed * 22 and there is no answer, ring, or anything. I figured it didn't go through. Then ten minutes later, two ladies from housekeeping were at the door. Obviously, dialing *22 alerts housekeeping to your intended departure because I called down at 0830 and they were at my door at 0845am. Check out time is 10am. As an exchange, the property was adequate. We usually just get two adjoining hotel rooms while in Vegas for my husband and our daughters. This hotel did offer more square footage, but we did miss the usual hotel amenities- restaurants, casino & self parking while in Las Vegas. If you are planning on staying longer than a few nights or you have small children, this property might work well for you. We did not even go up to look at the pool. One of my daughters visited the gym. It was well appointed.
