Tuscany Casino & Suites

Hello everyone, anyone stayed here recently? We have booked them for Jan. 1 - 6, got a great package deal thru Orbitz. Any tips on which rooms would be best, like to be close to the casino, will the pool be open, in house food venues and any thoughts on their casino, good or bad?

Thanks in advance for any info you may have.

I have never stayed there bu stop every time I visit Vegas. We really like the cafe there. Good food & service and nice small casino.It is a nice place. I think it would be too cold for swimming in Jan. It is a couple of blocks walk from the strip.

It's been several years since I've stayed there but I stop in from time to time.

I'd suggest a 3rd floor room (top floor). They have elevators if that's a concern. Otherwise you get the noise of people walking in the room above you.

I'm not a big fan of the café as I've found the service to be slow. I like the little snack bar they have by the gift shop and will often get a coffee and a muffin or breakfast sandwich there then sit at a table by the pool on nice mornings. I've also had some good meals at the Mexican place there.

Just ask at the desk and if they can they will probablly acommidate you with 'close to casino'... however it is a pleasant walk even from the furthest builing.... eat at Marylins while you are there, it is a good choice for affordable and yummy food.

Also don't try to walk to the strip from the hotel.... it looks closer than it is, and can be a sketchy neighborhood.

Nice easy stroll to the strip. 10 minutes. Not much different in distance as strip to Ellis Iland. Sketchy neighborhood, yes if youve lived in a tree all your life. Common sense same as anywhere else.

We enjoyed our stay there a few years ago, might even return now Bills has gone.

I walk there without any concerns other than "be aware of your surroundings". Easy access to the back door of Bally's. The Mexican restaurant was very good when I ate there.

Good to know that the Mexican is good. Lawry's is great for lunch across the street. How are the video poker machines???

Just booked to return next month. Was there 18mths ago staying in a ground floor suite, huge!! Last Christmas we stayed 24 floors up on the strip, too much of a hike to the room, through smoky casinos then in the elevator and walking down long corridors, had terrible noise from rooms next door, walls so thin, however at the Tuscany, peace and quiet all night and as you walk out of your room (its 30 seconds from H Block), you could bypass or go into the casino. If you go to Marilyn's - open 24 hrs you have to walk through the machines and tables but its a minutes walk, they have small sports bar also and the Mexican restaurant famed for best Margaritas I am told!! I am a fan too now. Pool will be closed. It was not open in March. So to the strip, there are taxis and a limo outside to take you, but unless its raining why not walk, its just a 10 minute stroll in fresh air to Bally's, or walk right to Flamingo, I am sure, time wise its the same as walking long corridors in strip hotels!! And very safe, how its considered a dodgy area shocks me somewhat. There are a number of eateries around including Lawry's opposite, for a top steak dinner, Bahama Breeze for Brazilian cooking, and Battista's Hole in the wall for Italian in unique surroundings. Tuscany have their own Italian too, will try there this visit as they have an offer for two to dine there - it is part of their Resort Fee charge, which is $14 a day. If you are at MGM and decide to pay for the train back and then walk from Bally's DON'T, a taxi is cheaper, and it brings you to the door, unlike the monorail. With all the strip hotels enticing you in with their themes and neon lights, its a shame to me I am not trying out another hotel when I next visit, but if you find somewhere that you cannot fault, highly recommend to others, then you would be silly not to stay there again, so we are. I hope you enjoy it too.

It's been several years for us. Tuscany has large rooms, a kitchenette area. Great for quick access to and from the property (you will need a car). I think it is about a half mile from the Strip. On property, there are two buildings nearer to Flamingo that are also close to the lobby and casino. As the other poster recommended, I would request for the top floor of the building. It looks like the floors are made of wood and you can hear the thumping of footsteps above.

I have no idea what a resort fee of $14 adds since it would be too cold for swimming. The cantina and coffee shop service varies. We've had great, quick service and slow, ho hum service. The food is ok, nothing to rave about. Lawry's across the street is great for the prime rib dinner. The casino is tiny and quiet. We did not play all that much, only to end the night before retiring.

I think this area is very safe. Short walk from the strip, and from the back of Bally's. Walked from Tuscany to

the Strip many times.
