This is a nice, small, slightly off the strip timeshare / hotel. It's basically behind Planet Hollywood. It takes about 3 minutes to walk across the street and get into the Miracle Mile Shops. Not bad, but not really "on the strip." I think the location is fine. The side street you walk to get to the strip is fine. Not seedy, but if you go the opposite direction of the strip you may find yourself uncomfortable since the homeless population is pretty large and not shy. It doesn't bother me, but may bother others. All in all, a 5-10 min walk to the strip (5 for me, 10 max if you're slow).
As for the property itself, it was nicer than I expected. A good surprise. The rooms are large and well appointed. The lobby, business area, and common room on the first floor were nice. The "gym" or "cardio room" (can't remember what they call it) is disappointing. 3 machines I believe... Elliptical, tread mill, sitting bike. That's it. Impressively small room.
If you have a timeshare and you're looking to trade for a place in Vegas that is close to the strip, this is a great option. I would say its much better than the Polo Towers--another timeshare option "on" (read: behind) the strip. There is a Marriott option next to this property, but they were full (I was making last minute reservations for Xmas week and Carriage House was my only option). I can't compare the two fairly, but Carriage House is 1/4 of the size and doesn't look as nice from the outside...not that it mattered to me. It was fine inside.
If you don't care about being walking distance to the strip, there are a lot of other options in Vegas. Personally, I'd recommend this one pretty highly!
NOTE!!!! There is heavy construction going on at the property across the parking lot. If you stay on the side of the building that faces the construction, you'll be woken up in the early mining hours by the noise. I heard this complaint and requested rooms on the other side of the building. I didn't hear ANYTHING. So no construction noise complaints from me.
