Stayed for the first time at the Jockey club and was pleasantly surprised. This hotel has no attached casino and is more a residence stay-cation resort. I booked through "Book-it.com" and my rate for 6 days was a mere $600.00. My expectations at that rate weren't very high but I was in for a surprise. This hotel is situated between the Cosmopolitan and Bellagio on the Vegas Strip. The suite consisted of a small kitchenette, small living room-dining room combination and an ensuite master bedroom with a king sized bed and walk in closet with in room safe. the furniture and appliances were modern and clean, and there was a 42 inck wall mounted flatscreen TV in both bedroom and living room. The Staff is unobtrusive and efficient. there is an on site minimart and daily shuttle rides to a local grocery store to stock your kitchen. the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cookware plus other items i.e. blender. There pool is small but adequate and they have a passageway into the Cosmopolitan for those who wish for more of a nightlife. Vegas has seen some of the economic downturn affecting the nation, and you will find the usual panhandlers, street performers, and hawkers of prostitution services which are legal in Nevada. The advertising of these services is quite overt, so be prepared to shield the kids or explain the moving billboards advertising girls to your door in 20 minutes. That being said there is plenty that appeals to families as well to include Cirque du soliel, and many of big named acts. Restaurant fare is plentiful but usually expensive. I can personally recommend a very reasonably priced Italian restaurant called Buca di Beppo . The service was excellent thanks to our server, Stewart, as was the food. Portions are large so you might wish to split an order, and as stated, the prices reasonable. Oh, one last item, There is a current building boom for time share condos and the sale personnel will assault you all along the strip. be prepared and just firmly state your disinterest and be on your way without any trouble. These people will try to lure you to listening to their salespitch by offering a free show. Most of these "free" shows require buying one ticket at an exagerated price in order to get a second ticket "free". Just goes to show what W.C. Fields once said was tru, "Theres no such thing as a free lunch".
