“Penthouse suite w/ absolutely no view (Unit 1176)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I rented a 2 bedroom/2 bath penthouse suite at the Jockey Club 6 months in advance of our stay for New Years Eve. We were excited that we would be center strip and be able to see the New Years Eve celebrations from our suite without being on the strip. However, upon arriving at our suite (#1176), the only view was the cement wall of the buildings next to us. We couldn't event tell if the sun was out or if it was cloudy outside.

Additionally, the only lamps in the suite were 4 torchiere type lamps in the entire unit, and 2 bedside student desk lamps (only one of which worked). The overhead kitchen light fixture did not work due to an electrical problem so we had no lighting in the kitchen other than the light over the stove top. It was dark enough in that unit that you could not read in the evening. The furniture was dark colored, and all of the bedding was brown/black including the sheets and towels which only added to the darkness of the unit.

The mattresses were comfortable but the mattress covers must have been made out of bubble wrap from the way they sounded whenever anyone sat on or turned over in the bed. It was loud enough to wake other occupants.

Although the unit is advertised as having a "full kitchen", it does not have an oven or a dishwasher. Luckily, a friend rented a unit on the 5th floor with a "full kitchen" that did have an oven and dishwasher so we could have our New Years Eve dinner in her unit. Additionally, she actually had a view of the Bellagio fountains and the Strip from her 2 bedroom/2 bath unit. I paid almost twice as much to have no view, no dishwasher, no oven, poor lighting, and a dirty kitchen/dining floor. Bare feet and white socks were filthy at the end of each day from walking on the kitchen/dining room floor.

I am glad that other travellers had better experiences with their units than I did. My recommendation to other people considering the Jockey Club is to avoid unit 1176 if you want to get the view and amenities that you are paying for by renting a penthouse unit.

Room Tip: If a view is important to you, realize you do not have to be on the penthouse level to get it. And t...

We stayed here the week of Christmas 2011 and we were not informed that some units were being renovated. Nice surprise to wake up to hammers banging at 8 am. No mention of construction at Jockey Club's website nor any of the booking websites so call the property directly and ask if construction is still ongoing. When we complained at the front desk, we were told it was our responsibility to ask. There were no other rooms available to move into.

This property is perfectly central on the strip adjacent to Miracle Mile Shops, Bellagio, the new City Center and shares a parking garage with Cosmopolitan Hotel. It also has the most expensive restaurants so if you're a family on a budget, plan to shop at a supermarket outside the strip after check-in.

The 1 BR suite we got was a good size, had 2 TVs, large living room couch, and amply stocked kitchen.

If you are expecting wifi access, don't count on it. We called their help desk # but there was no access over the weekend. We got a return call after 4 days just as we checked out. We only had wifi for one night over a 5 day stay.

It is surprising that the LV businesses on the strip don't have consolidated wifi access. Every major city in this day and age should have one.

Tip: If you self-park in level B3, it will be difficult to find the elevator for Jockey Club. I suggest you unload in their valet ($5/day) parking the first day and get your bearings then self-park succeeding days. You have to transfer elevators at the pool level to the Jockey Club elevator banks.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the strip (Paris Eiffel Tower and Bellagio fountains).

We stayed there in 2BR/2BATH suite. Suite is very good, impeccably clean and very well maintained, with full kitchens, refrigerators, flat screen TVs.

The building is quite historical and was a top notch hotel where many famous people owned the suites decades ago.

It has very wide hallways, good gym with jacuzzi inside, heated all year round swimming pool. Shuttle to grocery stores operates few times a week. Every Thursday evening there is a movie night at the club room downstairs.

On the down side: there are no washers/dryers in the rooms, only shared ones on the floors. Minor inconvenience.

Resort is located right between Bellagio and Aria hotels with elevator shared with Aria giving the direct access to Aria casino. Aria parking lot is used by Jockey Club guests. Half of the rooms has great view of Bellagio/Paris casinos. And another half has a very up close wall view of the Aria hotel, not great at all.

Another important note about this hotel:
Few years ago hotel made a deal with the timeshare company GeoHoliday and since then they invite people to their office in Jockey Club hotel (sometimes people also invited to stay in Jockey Club for free) for timeshare presentations with aggressive and pushy sales tactics. By any means, under any circumstances don't buy membership in GeoHoliday. You will regret it dearly. Do your due diligence, their membership goes for $1 on ebay and they sell it for ~$15000+ way over market at their office. Same is true for pretty much any timeshare company.

Room Tip: Try to request north side room (with Bellagio view)

Great location right next to the Bellagio. When we book our three rooms we requested a view of the Bellagio fountain and were pleased to have this requested granted upon check in. The rooms were fantastic with a full kitchen, lounge room, dining table and a separate bedroom with a walk in wardrobe. If you don’t get a room with a view you can always turn on the TV and watch the Belaggio fountain from the camera they have on the roof! There was still some construction for the new “City Centre” development next door but it had little to no effect on our stay or the hotel itself. **Visited March 2010**

Room Tip: Ask for a fountain view room.

The Jockey Club has been remodeled with very nice room upgrades. If you are going for 3+ days, you will really like that the facility has a kitchen. The location can not be beat. You are right next door to the Bellagio right on the strip. Location location location ...

We booked this trip last minute and the Jockey Club was the only suite hotel available. A suite or two bedroom arrangement was essential as our party included two adult children.

We arrived around 11:00 in the morning and our room was ready, allowing us to ditch our bags. The room was clean and although we were not staying long enough for it to matter it included a full kitchen. Despite its location the room was dead silent.

The hotel is across the street from the mall attached to Planet Hollywood where there are ample affordable restaurants. Presumably those on the North side of the building can see the Bellagio fountains.

The only issue was taxi and shuttle drivers couldn't quite figure out how to get there. You can also expect a timeshare sales pitch but it seems you will get that anywhere these days.

I was a little nervous about staying here after reading some of the reviews but it turned out to be OK. Our 2 br suite was newly renovated, very clean. The rest of the hotel is a little on the shabbier side but looks like things are in the middle of being redone. The location was amazing though, right between the Cosmopolitan and the Bellagio. Set back from the Strip a little which helped to keep things quiet. Definitely would recommend for those looking to be close to the action for a cheaper price. Just be careful of getting sucked into the timeshare presentation at the reservations desk! We got some free tix but not worth our time.
