Some notes from an enjoyable vacation during the last week of September..
The studio suite is much bigger than we had imagined, immaculate and with all the advertised amenities. Bathroom is really large with a jetted tub, separate shower and toilet areas and an extra large vanity (The TV embedded in the mirror is something new!). King size bed/extra soft pillows has to be among the best we ever slept on. Lot of closet space, extra large LCD TV, kitchenette with cooktop and some essentials. We were upgraded to a strip view on the higher floors for a small acceptable fee. And boy! they got some really fast elevators here.
Being a non-smoking hotel with no casinos, it is a quiet retreat from the smoky and loud casino hotels on the strip. Good place to crash down after all that hard work making money at the casinos.
There is a 15$ resort fee (per day), but we were aware of this fact and is charged by almost all hotels there. We also tried out the breakfast in room and food/service was pretty good, and pricing fairly reasonable. The stay gave us a feeling of royalty!Definitely staying here again on a return trip!
The fashion show mall (pretty big one) is just across the road from Trump's exit. Can be used as a shortcut to Treasure Island casino and beyond for those preferring to walk. Having a rental car is better though, as casinos further down south of the strip like MGM and Mandalay are pretty far away. Car parking is free at all casinos, and that really helps roam around quickly. We had a day trip to Hoover dam and GrandCanyon planned, so a car was absolutely essential. Also we generally saw long queues for the bus.
Tix4Tonight (for discount show tickets) is in front of the Mall on the Las Vegas Blvd side, we got discount tickets for Blue Man Group (50$) and Mac King Comedy/Magic (20$). Both highly recommended and a tad cheaper than other Cirque O Soliel shows. The lines begin forming at 9:30 and they open at 10AM. They have a coupon online which helps you get rid of the service charge.
Stratosphere tower is further north of the Trump, hosting those extreme rides. We took the XScream, that shoots you down and dangles you from the edge of the 108th floor. One scary ride, just lasts about 2 minutes, but definitely worth taking. Sit in the front 2 seats if possible, as you will extend well beyond the rails before abruptly stopping giving you one hell of an experience of nothingness below!
There are a few souvenier shops between Trump and Stratosphere, mostly near the Sahara. The easiest/fastest way back to the airport/car rental place. Take the Las Vegas Blvd, turn left on Sands ave (between Wynn and Venetian) drive upto Paradise Ave and then turn right. Its a straight road all the way from there on!
Also a note for those who are from out of state and driving to Grand Canyon, Arizona has a photo enforcement policy, so drive 11 miles above the speed limit and there is a chance you may get snapped along the way. No points on the license I believe, but you do get a souvenir picture and approx 200$ fine :) Posted speed limit for most of the journey is 75, but it changes at certain sections.
