The Grand Desert is a wonderful property. I stayed in tower 1 which is the original building. Even though i noticed some wear and tear the room was wonderful and spacious. The wear and tear im referring to is chipped floor molding in the elevators and scuffs on the walls where the bell carts must hit... that didnt bother me at all.
I didnt interact with the staff much as i was working but the one person i did come across, a bellman, saw me entering the building with many bags and he was headed to the elevator too and clearly saw me but did not hold it... oh well! Over all what a great two day stay. I will return.

We stayed at the Fairfield from Sept 11-18. We had a 2 Bedroom Presidential Suite on the 12th floor of the 1st Building. This building has the conveinence store, restuarant, gym facility and adult pool attached.

We loved staying here and having our own kitchen. We made breakfast every morning and a few scattered lunches and dinners.

They offer many activities for adults and kids. They can also arrange organized tours to most of the major attractions(ie: Hoover Dam, Liberace Museum, Outlet Shopping). They offer a nightly shuttle to the Fremont Street Expeirence and frequent shuttles to Harrahs and The Rio.

The units are beautiful and the staff is really great. We would definitely come to this resort again.

Went Fairfield Grand Desert for my honeymoon, got a great deal from (---). The rooms were wonderful, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything that you need (even things that I don't have in my own kitchen). The living room was wonderful, the rooms were incredible, but the best part was the bathroom. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub big enough for three people, and a separate walk in shower that's big enough for 10 people. The washer and dryer were a plus. The pools were very nice and relaxing, the activity room was very helpful; it had free interned access, pool tables, video games for the kids and much more. My wife and I enjoyed coming back after a night out on the strip without dealing with the crowds and the noise of casinos. I highly recommend the Fairfield Grand Desert

Easy access to the strip and the convention center. The amenities are awesome and I loved the service. One of the best experiences I have had in Las Vegas and I am a frequent business traveler to "sin city" for business. Very relaxing environment even though you are just a few blocks away from multiple choices in entertainment. You will not be disappointed, my thanks to the staff for a wonderful 4 day stay.

In one word"Unbelievable"... That describes our stay here at the Grand Desert. It was an absolute joy staying here. The rooms were like an upscale apartment. We stayed in the 2 bdr. deluxe from Aug.28th. to Sept.1 and we had a strip view on the 13th floor. We were able to make our own meals which we figured saved us about 250.00 dollars for the 4 nights and 5 days that we were there, as opposed to eating on the strip and going to all the very expensive restaurants. We were able to do laundry and not have to pack so many clothes. We also brought our kids along with us and this place is excellent if you have kids. Even if you don't have kids there are two pools, one for adults and one for kids and they are seperated so if you don't wan't to be bothered by kids you won't be. They are also in the final stages of opening there third tower in October and that tower also has a pool and more privacy if that's what you want.
The staff was tremendous, very helpful and the amount of activities they have there is just fantastic. There is so much to do there on a daily basis you don't even need to leave the place. If you bring your kids this is the place as they really have a lot to do for the kids and adults as well.
It's only two short blocks to the strip, which takes you to the Aladdin, and if you go the other way you are a short walk from the Hard Rock Hotel. If you are lazy you will think it's a long walk to the strip but if you can walk a little it's not that far and they have shuttles runnning every half hour that takes you to Harrah's and the Rio.
The do not have a restaurant but the do have a Cafe' for snacks and breakfast and lunch, but you do have a full kitchen in your room and isn't that why you came here to be able to cook your own meals. So don't be lazy, get out there go to the many grocery stores nearby, buy some groceries and cook your own meals, you will save hundred's of dollars and you can eat whenever you wan't!! The place is just gorgeous, the rooms are beauiful and spacious and this is coming from two people who are very paricular about there accomodations, as we have stayed in many timeshares across the U.S.A and this one is one of the best we have stayed at. Try it you won't be disappointed. We even took the timeshare presentation, all you have to do is say no, just smile and act interested and when it is time just say NO!! We recieved a lot of goodies for our time as we where only there for mayber 45 minutes and we got 50.00 cash, and show tickets for 4 to two different shows, and the show tickets were worth 30.00 each so we made out very well and the shows were great. Take it from us this review is worth noting as i read a lot of these reviews before we left on our trip and i could not believe that there would be any negative reviews for this place, granted this was our experience and others may have had some problems with staff, or were upset that there was no real fancy restaurant, or it was to far to walk to the strip, but ours was an experience of a life time!!

I will start off my review by saying that, if you're coming to Vegas with kids, this would be the perfect place to stay. It's a non-gaming hotel with plenty of activities for the kids. If you're like my fiance and myself, then it's a bit of a give and take. We got in early (9am) and were told we'd have to come back at 2pm. Not a big deal, you're in Vegas with plenty to do so we went out. We came back at 2pm and were checked in only to find our room wasn't quite finished with the cleaning process. The pull out was out and unmade, towels in the middle of the floor and bottles of cleaner everywhere. We dealt with it and really did enjoy the room, especially the garden tub and seperate shower. Very nice. The computer says it has wireless internet, but only in certain rooms. Why in the world you wouldn't go the extra mile to make sure it's available in all is beyond me. They also talk about a "kids" and "adult" pool, but while we were there families were in both pools with kids of all ages. We were going to stay at MGM but chose Fairfield because we got a better price. That was a mistake. We ended up paying the difference first in cab fairs because we grew tired of waiting on shuttles just to go to Harrah's to then take the monorail and then in rental car costs as we got tired of taking cabs. I would give anything to do it again and stay at the MGM. Again, if you're going with a family, not a bad place to stay. But the larger question is, why would you take your family to Vegas??

We stayed at the Fairfield resort last weekend for three nights, and the experience was underwhelming. There were four of us in a two bedroom suite. Check in went simply, and the suite was certainly adequate. Pluses include the availability of wireless Internet in rooms; minuses on that score are that Internet in rooms is not free...though there is free Internet for adults in the Activity Center. This is a poor resort to come to without a car, as the shuttle goes only to Harrahs or the Rio (it would be SO helpful if it were to stop at a shopping area going to/from). There is no real restaurant on site, only a poor snack bar-style place that has a limited menu. Tip: down the street toward the Hard Rock, on your right, you'll pass a cruddy apartment complex and then hit a nicer resort with an electrified display sign facing the street. This place has a decent hotel restaurant with reasonable and copious breakfasts and lunches and is walking distance. The concierge at the Fairfield will not tell you about it, though. Anotther drawback is a lack of electrical plugs around the hotel. If you hope to hook up your laptop at poolside, forget it. The two pools are nice, and it's good that there are different ones for kids and adults. Hot tub was a good temperature. Activity Center had lots of stuff for kids to do, including games, pool tables, and Xbox games for free. For the price, though, you probably can do better than the Fairfield experience.
