Service was outstanding. We stayed for a 4 day week end and the location was great, close access to the monorail or the tram going south. The staff was quick to respond to any need we had. We liked having the kitchen in our room and the Monday through Thursday cocktail and hor doerve hour was fantastic. We met some amazing people. The rooms were clean, quiet and the every day cleaning was more than sufficient. We would absolutely stay again. Oh, and don't forget the free breakfast every morning.

Room Tip: Third floor and north end will give you somewhat of a view of the strip

This was our 3rd stay at Desert Rose.
First thing I want to comment on is the price increase. This time around we stayed in a 1 bedroom instead of a 2 bedroom because of the price. (It however has been 2 years since we last stayed!) It is still cheap compared to strip prices.
Rooms haven't changed much at all, although they were putting cable into all their rooms while we were there. Another change is the orange juice...it isn't powdered now...big plus.
Rooms are still comfortable, kitchens still fully equiped, house keeping still great and for vegas rooms are still quiet (unless your neighbour decides to have a shower, then you'll hear the water going)
So, what else to tell you...location, it is walking distance to the mgm, new york new york etc, if you want a supermarket you would need a car as they are a good distance away.

Las Vegas is a crazy town with so many hotels to choose from. One of the problems is finding a hotel that you can truly RELAX is an yet is close enough to the buzz of the strip. The Desert Rose is that hotel. It is on block off the strip and QUITE! The rooms are LARGE and AMAZING with full size appliances in the rooms so you can relax, fix any meals you like in the room - or not. It is a great value. The staff is great and very accommodating and focused on the customer - completely unlike the strip hotels where your ears are constantly being assaulted and the staff have the attitude YOU should feel privileged to be help by them. It is very family friendly and have accommodations for the very young kids. Great place - you will not be disapointed.

It's not often I write a scathing review, but this place deserves it. They try but fail to meet any expectations.

I stayed here for three days (switching rooms once.) The first thing that happened is that I found a lower rate after my initial reservation - they would not honor it.

The second thing that happened is the room was sub-par and my friends vacation points for the second two nights were not refunded. As for things that were wrong: water pressure, door lock was broken, furniture had rips and stains, there was sand in the water coming out of the tub faucet, dishwasher didn't work, phone didn't work. My friend and I spent 6 hours one day waiting on the workmen who came to fix the problems, ever escalating the issues to higher and higher up until they simply changed our room. We were informed by the head of maintenance that we would get credited for two days of the stay - we weren't.

The third thing that happened is that the Vacation Club was rented out to a large group of 'international students.' There were yelling kids, swearing, screaming, name calling, running up and down the halls, slamming doors. Where were the chaperones?

The forth thing was that the property was under major construction. No mention of this when booking or upon arrival, just that walkways were closed, entrences were blocked, security gates missing

The final kick in the pants was my having to give my email address upon checking in. Since then I have received no less than 12 emails 5 after unsubscribing more than two weeks ago and even one today.

There are much nicer places to stay for the price.

Enjoyed stay overall. 2 couples in 2 BR. Had a view of Hooters and New York,New York. Should renovate kitchen appliances to stainless and dining room area in rooms as table was worn looking and water stains on bedroom table. Should replace the gold 80's stoneware in kitchen with contemporary lighter dishes. Decent breakfast nice to have hot items and Starbucks coffee but could have more variety of breakfast items as we were there for a week. Only went to evening weekday reception once. Had wine and beer but snacks could have made smaller quantity as only one hot item and include more variety.TV remote in bedroom was stuck on menu page. Could not get other channel. Should change TVs in bedrooms to flat screens like the living room. nice to have HBO. Should provide shower hats in bathroom and sewing kits should be available if needed.Nice feather pillow amoungst other choices. Great heated pool and whirlpool open till 11 pm . .Unfortunately helicopters kept flying overhead for sightseeing tours. Exercise room Equipment not all working and not modern.Nice comfy beds. Could have used an extra suitcase stand in room. Nice to have two bedrooms and 2 BR. One has a shower with extra body jets that were not that strong and the other a large bathtub with Kroeler sinks.
Great value and felt like home. Not pretentious.

I enjoyed my stay at the Desert Rose Resort from start to finish. The Front Desk (especially Bronson) greeted me with warm smiles and a friendly attitude at checkin. My room was toasty and warm, I had Christmas music playing, and the lights dimmed when I walked in. And later when I realized I needed a couple of things delivered, the houseman was very nice (sooo sorry I can't remember his name) and the housekeeping staff I passed greeted me whenever I passed by. Thank you for a great stay!
