The rooms were big (especially the bathroom) and quiet, but I did not find the maintenance and cleanliness to be up to the standards I would expect at this hotel. It was obvious that under the beds was cleaned very often and the bathroom was never cleaned very well during the stay. I also had to bring several maintenance items up (e.g., no light switch on a lamp, non-working phone, non-working TV remote). With the exception of the phone, the items were fixed quickly (the phone was never fixed). The location on the south end of the strip is good because that means there isn't as much traffic through the public areas as other hotels. The public areas do like nice and there are good restaurants here. Use the monorail to aid in getting down the strip (at least to the Excalibur). Convention space is good, but can be limited if your convention is big.
