So let me begin by saying that I was not surprised at anything I experienced. Everyone knows that Las Vegas is not about service. It is about getting every last penny out of a guest. Be careful of reservations. You will not be able to figure out what you are going to get. I reserved an upgraded room with a view of the fountains at the Bellagio. When we arrived we were asked if we wanted to upgrade to a larger room with the same view and bay windows. I did. It was worth it. My room had a spectacular view of the strip.
When I called for reservations I asked if there was a coffee maker in the room. The reservation agent said yes and of course there was not. So if you want coffee in the morning expect a trip to Starbucks in the lobby and a substantial wait. 3 Danish rolls, one orange juice, a water and two coffee's $31.00. Just be prepared.
The room was clean but reeked of their air freshener. I mean seriously bad. And you can't open any windows or vents. Having said that there were air conditioners in the bathroom and sleeping room that worked fine. While on the subject, the resort room was very nice. There was a working area separate from the bedroom which is nice and the bathroom is enormous. There is a large bathtub with a window overlooking the strip for the brave. (Shear drapes but no curtain.) There is a walk-in shower and two separate sink areas. This is a great room for a couple. I asked for extra blankets and they were there in a two minutes. Towels and soap were fine. The king bed was extremely comfortable. Crisp white sheets and white comforter. Very nice. Our room had a Star Trek theme which was fun.
So they get a ding for charging $14.00 a day for INTERNET service. I did not avail myself of it as that is a deliberate rip off. I worked with the IPAD. If you need INTERNET for work be warned.
The valet parking is complimentary and fast. I never saw a bellman but I assume they have them. Nobody offered and my wife and I humped our own bags. There are a boat load of restaurants including a PF Chang's which is very nice. The Miracle Mile shopping district can be entered from the hotel. This is fun, filled with shops and restaurants, and can take a day or two of exploring. The casino requires a GPS to navigate. I did not like it and chose to wander down to the Venetian for dinner and fun. My associate enjoyed the casino so I have no complaints. I am sure it is fine though confusing.
So in summary, it is a typical strip hotel. If you want glam then go to the Bellagio or Venetian. You will pay a bunch more. If you want a beautiful view, comfortable room and great location, then this hotel will do fine. I recommend the upgrade to the Resort Strip view room. With the curtains open it is like sleeping 17 floors up amid the lights of Las Vegas. Don't expect much special service. I have stayed in most of the hotels on the strip and this one is squarely in the center of the pack.
