OVERVIEW: as with all of my reviews, I rate the property to similar area facilities not class of hotel in one area vs. same class in another area.
Located in Henderson Nevada, just a 10-minute drive from the airport. Car will be cheaper then the $50 taxi ride. Rent car costs are about the same for a two-day stay. Hotel appears to have been constructed in the last few years. Property consists of two large 5 (?) story buildings. Facilities on property consist of 6 theaters, many restaurants, Whisky Discotheque, pool area and spa. Property design is Mediterranean, with the theme flowing to the pool/spa area as well as rooms, public areas (except Whisky) casino and some restaurants. A small shopping center with two or three restaurants are just outside the door. Very up scale. REI one of the key stores.
THE GOOD: Easy to find from the airport and the wait for the car is probably less then a taxi. No mob scene at the driveway. Valet service is excellent. Never waited for the car to be delivered to the door. Accidentally left a camera in the car. Still there next day! Lobby and public areas are wonderfully decorated in a Mediterranean style. Check in was rapid as there is no crowd. Free coffee in lobby for early risers.
The Pancake Rest. Go early as there will be a line. Although we did not attend, I will vouch for the Whisky Bar. It is really cool looking and you can sit outside. Pool area is fantastic. Many venues to choose from: main pool, cabanas, adult, small beach area hot tubs and first rate pool service. Pool restaurant food was excellent, as were the drinks. Lots of great large couches to lounge on in open, sunny or shaded areas. Great design on the landscape and pool. Security on site, keeps out interlopers. Spa adjoins pool area and the landscaping around the spa is in keeping with the Med. theme with a small vineyard. Did not use the spa. Best in room snacks in any hotel…ever.
THE BAD: Much has been written about the infamous noise at the Whisky. We requested a room away from the bar area and got a parking lot view. A few cars going up the ramp woke us up but not major noise. The T.V. is old school, probably 25”s and had lousy reception. Shower area in bath had a few tiles missing. Speaker in bathroom from t.v. twice as loud as tv. Finally found the off switch. The restaurant that is the Hotel’s coffee shop etc should not be considered as a palatable source of food. They do have great tap beer though.
THE UGLY: The design of the casino and restaurants is an open concept. This means that smoke from cigarettes is everywhere but does not go to the rooms (not in Pancake House either). Arrived on Sat night to full house. Lot’s of day gamblers arrived and they know how to smoke!!!! I was overwhelmed by the smoke. It flows to most of the restaurants and down the hallways towards convention rooms. Smoke from the Whisky bar flows into the lobby area. If you are sensitive to smoke pass on this hotel.
OVERVIEW: Understanding that Las Vegas is smoker’s nirvana, if you can get by the smoke and a few little things this hotel is a great value. Pool area and service were fantastic. Just getting away from the crowds is great. Lines in the restaurants are much shorter and the crowds other then Sat night / Sun p.m. are pretty thin. Great décor. Prices are much cheaper then the strip.
