This modern hotel is just off the strip and is not itself a casino. Smoke free! It's a healthy walk to the strip. Don't bother with the shuttle. I had a regular room on the 27th floor. Spectacular views of the mountains.
The kitchen in the room looked fantastic but was not stocked with utensils, cookery, plate-ware. There was a card indicating that you could request items for the kitchen, but this seemed odd and counter-productive considering they'd gone to the trouble.
The iron was locked to the ironing board with a cable. I have never seen this before. Didn't mind using water from a water-bottle or a cup from the bathroom to fill the iron, but it was a little odd.
Absolutely no AC-power beside the bed to plug in your phone, that was not already surrounded by the bed frame/sidetables . For a new hotel, this is clearly an oversight and an annoying one if you have to get up and walk across the room to get your charging phone, laptop, etc.
Wifi worked ok. Had to sign-in repeatedly with my Iphone, but it was free and was very fast.
Really beautiful bathroom, separate shower with bench, giant tub (be careful, it's prone to spilling at the slightest move in there), plenty of comfortable big towels, superb toiletries.
There's a shop near the lobby that sells almost everything and is reasonably priced for Vegas. Food, booze, everything.
Keep your key handy as you walk toward the elevator as a security guard will ask to see it (just a quick flash) everytime you head back to your room.
I'd stay again, definitely, but the few little details missed mildly skewed my appreciation.
