I initially had reservations about booking this hotel, given that between the Marriott Grand Chateau and Polo, the former has a more upscale reputation. But nonetheless, I booked away after finding out that the Marriott was undergoing construction work... And yes, the Polo's cheaper price did sweeten the deal.
Why the Polo vs. Marriott? First of all, they're the only two Stripside hotels that offer 2-bedroom suites at a reasonable price (there were 5 of us). Secondly, they don't feature casinos - after staying at the Tropicana, my husband and I were well over the casino thing. Finally, both are located on an excellent spot on the Strip, within walking distance of attractions like the Bellagio Fountains.
So, back to the story - it was with a little trepidation that we arrived at the Polo Towers. However, that disappeared after we entered the small, but presentable lobby and were greeted by their friendly front desk.
Really, for what you pay, there isn't much to fault the Polo Towers on. Our 2-bedroom suite was actually a studio + a 1-bedroom apartment, with a connecting door between the two. There was a fold-down queen bed that came down from one of the walls, which transformed the living room into an extra bedroom. All up, it was sufficient for 6 people, especially as we didn't plan to spend much time in our rooms, anyway. However, having a full kitchen was handy over the course of our 2-night stay.
There were two glitches, though - we had to make the fold-down bed ourselves (front-desk said it was too late for them to send up someone to do it at 5-6pm) and the door on one of the bathroom cabinets had fallen off its hinge. Just little reminders that we were staying at a three-star hotel and not the Marriott.
Small wrinkles aside, what took our stay from practical, to pretty cool was the excellent view of Harmon Corner and The Strip from our room on the 11th floor. That was a real treat, especially for our friends who had never been to Vegas before. Being able to get to The Strip so quickly and easily did mean that we could skip using the car for most outings, which was superb.
Overall, the Polo Towers is a practical and very comfortable place to stay, especially if you're travelling with a group. If you can get a room with a view, it will feel like excellent value, too!
