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.
