From the start, Chelsea, our suite assistant made us feel really welcome. After apologising for upgrading us to a penthouse suite (bugger!), she led us to one of the swankiest rooms we have ever stayed in. The room was impeccable, well furnished and had plenty of space for the 4 of us and we frankly didn't mind not overlooking the strip. Throughout our stay, we felt well looked after and found a little solace from the crowds in what felt like a haven of peace in bustling Las Vegas. Car valet was included, as was the inner tubes at the lazy pool downstairs. Only downsides: the bed mattress in the master bedroom was frankly awful and not recommended if your parter is of a different weight to you as they'll end up bouncing off the bed every time the heaviest (me) turna over. Also, the lounge, although a great idea, serves only the most basic food and no alcohol in the evening (just charge more to the room but please don't charge for drinks in grey lounge, it's really poor)! Such potential wasted unfortunately. Having staid at hotels that offered happy hour and a well furnished lounge, I know the difference this makes to the atmosphere of a hotel (check the Argonaut in SF for a prime example of this). And finally, the Monte Carlo itself feels a little worse for wear and the pool area is definitely in need of an upgrade. Having said all that, we would stay there again. The suite assistants (in our case Chelsea and Amber merit a special mention) and the rooms won us over in spite of the negatives. Would definitely recommend.
