Ravella (former Ritz Carlton) or Loew's @ Lake Las Vegas?

I know most people go to Las Vegas to gamble or visit the Strip. But to us, Las Vegas is just an airport that we are flying in/out of while we visit the National Parks with our child. After days of hiking and sight seeing, we had hoped to spend the last 2 days of our vacation relaxing by a pool. I was looking for a non-casino hotel and thought the Lake Las Vegas area with their beach and lake would be fun for our 11 year old.

I was looking at the Ravella which is opening in the location of the former Ritz Carolton or the Loew's. Any thoughts on the location of these 2 properties? I know the area has become a "ghost town", but is anything (shopping, dining, etc) still open?

In answer to your question. Yes, Lake Las Vegas is an excelllant

pick and is coming back alive. Ravella is the Ritz Carlton with

better pricing and I's sure you'd enjoy your stay there as well as

Lowes or even Mantelago Resort Hotel where I live long-term.

The people are great.

Stayed at Loews Lake Las Vegas 2 years ago (and visiting again tomorrow) and absolutely loved it. Yes, the resort was basically dead, but that means you have it all to yourselves. Surrounded by beautiful scenery and a short drive from the strip if you need more action. Haven't been to/visited Ravella...it's new since we visited last, but I'm sure it's a great property too.

Loews is now a Westin poperty. This is better than Ravella. The pool is hugh. This answer may arrive too late but others may find it helpful.

Hi itravel099. I found your information very helpful. Thank you for updating this post (originally started 2 years ago!). We are planning a new Las Vegas adventure in 2013 and are considering a stay at the Westin that was formerly the Loews.

I just posted about our getaway to Lake Las Vegas. We stayed at the Aston Montelago and it was amazing. If I had to choose between Ravella and Westin I would say Ravella since the village is right there! I'd be happy to answer any questions:)

I just read dozens of negative reviews on TA about Lake Las Vegas, so found your positive comments interesting. Were the pools heated, WIFI reliable, and golf courses operating? Service? Shops? Restaurants? We're considering a month-long stay in a condo there so would love more info. Thx!
