I recently purchased tickets to see Tim Allen perform at TS. Decided to book a hotel room to make a night of it. Checked in at 3 with no hassle (check in time is 4). Friendly and efficient at front desk. The room was on the 8th floor overlooking the vast pool(s) area, golf course and expansive view of the desert. The decor was beautiful - very contemporary and soothing colors. Room came equipped with large screen TV, small refrigerator and coffee maker (Keurig-but it didn't work). The bathroom was awesome with large separate show plus a tub, Great design. Enjoyed a drink prior to dinner at a bar on the casino floor. Sat at a small table that needed to be bussed and wasn't the 15 minutes we sat there. We had to move to the bar itself and enjoyed a generous glass of wine. Of the few dining options we chose the buffet. Thought it pricey (more so than most casino buffets) but the quality of the food was great. Kobe steaks, NY strip roasts, mahi mahi. There was an Italian, Mexican and Asian section. King crab legs were a big hit along with shrimp and mussels. Salads with lots of toppings, mixed veggies, etc. Very impressive. The dessert section was awesome though I didn't partake. But there were many sweet options served up in small 3-4 spoonful servings. You could enjoy several varieties without wasting a full size dessert. There was also a great gelato section with lots of options. Overall a nice experience for a quick get-away for the evening. P.S. TIm Allen was hysterical.
