My husband and I were visiting Las Vegas for the first time in January 2006 from the UK and were keen to pick a nice hotel to stay in. After much searching, we opted for the Treasure Island hoping it would suit our taste for somewhere nice but not snooty. We weren't disappointed.
The Hotel was lovely and clean, the rooms spacious and well equipped with hairdryer, iron and ironing board, TV with access to films and internet and a fairly large bathroom with bath, shower and large vanity area. We opted for a high floor strip view room and found it great. I suspect the rooms on the lower floors may be noisy as the Casino was very busy at all hours. The rooms were cleaned every day and the towels changed daily and we had no gripes with any of the services we obtained. The only fly in this ointment was the little fella who guards the elevators at night to ensure only guests go up there. Whilst the sentiment is great, the attitude of this little Hitler is awful. He's rude and sarcastic and generally a pain in the rear.
The Hotel itself has a large and busy casino, various eating places to suit most budgets and one or two shops for snacks, gifts, maps etc. We found the Italian Restaurant and Steakhouse in the hotel expensive but the Buffet and Canters Deli were more reasonable.
Keep an eye this and other hotels and try to book only a week or two before you go. When we first starting looking for a 10 day stay here it was showing $2500, by the time we booked, it had dropped to $1400. It seems they reduce their prices daily in order to fill the rooms.
For a real fun Casino, try playing Blackjack at the Imperial a little further up the strip. They have "Dealertainers" dressed up as the Blues Brothers, Elvis etc and they take it in turns to deal the cards and perform on the centre podium. Look out for "Elwood" he's just lovely with first time players!
There are plenty cash machines in the hotel and all around so foreign travellers don't need to worry about exchanging much currency before they travel. The rates that came back on my credit card were better than I got from the bank before I left.
Be aware that all prices shown are before tax is added, it's not a great deal but generally puts about $7 on every $50 spent.
Watch out for "friendly" people pouncing on you every two minutes offering free shows, they want you to sit through a 2 hour timeshare session to get it. If you tell them you're going home tomorrow, they leave you alone!
Sunday is Buffett and a half day. We went to the Mandalay Bay and had a fabulous buffett (on par with most others price wise) but this one includes free champagne on Sundays.
Cabs from the airport are around $15 for the Treasure Island though you can go in style and opt for Limo at around $45, there are Limo drivers in suits at the airport exits offering these services and they are well worth it!
