Just returned from a 17 night stay in USA. The first 5 nights we stayed at the Plaza on Fremont. The hotel was well worth the money. We had a room in the South tower. It overlooked trailway line side. It was clean, spacious and quiet. The only 'wardrobe' space was a rail in the bathroom area and not much else apart from a set of drawers. However it certainly did not spoil or cause us any problems despite reading 'picky' comments by some customers. The Plaza is in a great location and is buzzing. However Fremont is 'downtown' and there are lots of vagrants and beggars around. (some using mobiles despites claiming to be penniless, homeless etc). If you're a new visitor to Fremont it can be a bit scarey due to the volume of people there (some very strange ones) but we never felt intimidated there (safety in numbers). There are some excellent places to eat especially at the Golden Gate and Main Street (fab buffet). The reviews we read regarding the Plaza were harsh. Its great value for money, in a great location and would stay again no problem. We then moved down to Treasure Island on 'the strip'. We paid $25 for an early check-in and the lovely man on reception spent ages getting us a 'room with a view' and oh my goodness he certainly did that. We were on floor 32 with an unspoilt panoramic view right up the strip, it was fabulous as were the beds (the best ever) and the fittings, toiletries and cleanliness. What a joy to stay in such a fabulous hotel. The only downside was the pool area which was very cramped, loud and definitely catered for the young party set. It certainly wasn't relaxing for the more mature customer! However don't let this put you off staying here its great and we would return with no concerns. We then went off to San Diego for 3 days. What can I say apart from - fabulous. We stayed at the Handlery on the north circuit. It was ok. We asked to change rooms as our curtains were hanging off the rails and was dark and dingey. We eventually got moved to an end room which was much lighter with windows on 2 sides and quieter ( there was a youth soccer team in the original corridor ). The staff very very helpful and the bars ok even if they did close early. This hotel was offered at $150 per night which I would have been very disappointed with had we paid that price. It was about 10 mins walk to the train station. However the old town was nice with a great pizza place called Bella pizza - excellent. The train service is efficient and cheap ($5-8 for an all day pass). The highlight was the city bus tour which takes you to Coronado OMG loved it. It is beautiful, immaculate, pretty, historic and relaxing. Definitely recommend it if you ever go to San Diego. We ended our Las Vegas with a stay at Southpoint. We stayed there last year and our friends have stayed there several times. The only negative was the room we got on the sixth floor which looked onto a .......wall! Had this been our first stay would have been very disappointed but because we had been before we stayed where we were. However our friends complained and were given the 11th floor. Being return guests it would have been nice to have been given a nicer room (management take note). Here is a BIG word of warning if you play bingo or slots/tables. I was fortunate to win over $4000 on the bingo and was told that they took 30% tax off the winnings YES 30%. We were given conflicting advice about claiming this back/not being able to claim it back. I have e-mailed the IRS to see if I can claim the tax back. If anyone has any advice/tips regarding this issue please let me know. Southpoint is great. The pool area is roomy and relaxing. the casino was not smokey as was reported by previous guests and is a great base for exploring. We visited the Hoover Dam. If you get the chance to go please do, its fabulous. All in all we had a brilliant time again (fourth visit) and will be back in the future. I hope this review helps and have tried to give a 'speak as you find' balanced review.
