This review is based on a return visit I made to this hotel over the Thanksgiving weekend, 2012.
I occupied a standard room with one king bed. The room was of ample size, clean, and all furnishings were in excellent condition. The bed was comfortable and delivered a good night's sleep. The room was also very quiet - no noise carried into the room from the hallway or other rooms close by.
The room was furnished with the bed, a small round cocktail table with 2 side chairs, an armoire with a large, flat-screen TV. The lack of a work desk or a desktop counter was a bit odd, although the cocktail table could be (and was) used to set up my laptop PC. The round shape of the table, however, did not lend itself to spreading out any materials, so if you need a room that is conducive to business or working on your PC, you might request a room with a desk (assuming they have them) to make sure you've got ample space.
Access to the hotel is via elevators that are located a very long way from reception. Be sure to bring your hiking shoes! The elevators do have a security feature requiring the insertion of a guest room card in order to access a guest floor. The elevators are also quite speedy and I found no long waits for one, even during busy times.
Ample free parking is located outside of the hotel/casino, and there is a door into the facility from the parking lot near the elevators. You don't have to pass through reception to get to your room.
Location of the hotel is in Henderson, with easy access to the I-515 freeway and points south (Boulder Dam, Arizona). The freeway provides decent access to downtown. The Strip is not nearby; plan on a 20-25 minute drive to get to the heart of the Strip. McCarran Airport is perhaps 15 minutes away. This part of the Las Vegas area is residential and local business, so those who don't want to stay in the middle of all of the glare and glitz of stereotypical Las Vegas may find this to be a nice choice. There are plenty of shopping and dining options nearby.
I do need to mention that the cost of my room was comp'ed through the Station Casino's Boarding Pass player incentive program. This covered the cost of the room, taxes, and the hotel's annoying amenity fee, but not optional extras such as 24-hour wi-fi ($9.99/day, which I used) or pay-per-view TV channels (which I didn't watch). Any guest can enroll in Borading Pass, and credits are earned in the casino by playing machines or table games. The more you play, the bigger the rewards. The Boarding Pass can be used at any of Station Casinos' properties in the greater Las Vegas area, and I believe that there are 10 hotels and 18 casinos that honor the card.
Overall, this is a decent place to stay - nice rooms, clean.
