We would like to take this opportunity to thank the management and staff of The Carriage House. We feel as though we where in the lap of luxury in their guest room with their king size bed, granite counter top in the kitchen and restroom, to welcome us after our long journey from Winnipeg, Canada. Thank you for a comfortable weeklong stay. We had a very nice time.
Location wise, we find the hotel in a good spot with respect to the distance to Las Vegas strip. The location of the hotel works for us very well especially finding restaurants and seeing one of the Cirque du Soleil shows (Zarkana).
Kudos to Lilia and Jessy, our guest room attendants, to Anthony who works in the front desk, and to Pam who is one of the concierges in this hotel. We hope that we may have the opportunity some day to return their kindness.
We will definitely go back to this hotel whenever we plan to visit Las Vegas again.
We diid the the Grand Canyon West Rim Tour, shopping in North and South premium factory outlets as well as saw Zarkana show.
The view in the West Rim is grand and spectacular. It is about 2 and a half hour drive from Las Vegas. Here is what you will expect from this tour in west rim. you will go over Railroad Pass and through historical Boulder City, before crossing over Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial bridge. Your first stop will be at Hoover Dam. You will be given 10 minutes where you will be allowed to step out of the bus and take photos of the beautiful Lake Mead and the Dam itself. Then you will continue on to to the west rim of the Grand Canyon. Just to let you know that there is about 14 miles of winding road and with that, there are 9 miles of unpaved road. You will also see Joshua Tree along the way. This tree existed since pre-historic time.
Upon arrival at the terminal, the bus will drop you off at the main entrance where you will then take the shuttle bus to get to the first point of the Canyon - the Eagle Point. Here, you will enjoy the view of the Grand Canyon. There is a skywalk which is 70 ft. glass walkway that extends over the canyon. The skywalk is optional and the charge is $35.00. Once you are done enjoying the views in this stop, you will hop in to another shuttle bus to bring you to the second stop (Guano Point). This stop is where you will have lunch served to you by the Hualapai Natives. We find the second stop has better views of the Grand Canyon. You will be spending about a total of 2 and a half hours in the canyon, so our advice is to devide the total time given to you in order for you to enjoy the the tour of the west rim. You will also consider the time you will spend for your lunch as well as shopping for souvenirs.
As you head back to Las Vegas, you will be treated to a full view of the valley, and if you feel that the tour guide/driver is courteous and professional, it is customary to give 15-20% gratuity.
We also did the shopping in North and South premium factory outlets, and we find that the former is bigger and more stores than the latter.
For the show, we find Zarcana a visually stunning, spectacular, acrobatic production.
Overall, it was a fun and enjoyable trip.
