Our room was very nice and cozy, with plenty of room. The view was incredible. We had a large window in the living room and our bedroom, and if you looked to the left, you saw the New York City skyline, and if you looked to your right, you saw the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel and Casino (only in Vegas). We had a one-bedroom unit, and it had a living room, a bedroom with a large king-size bed, and it's own TV. The room was big, too. It had a full kitchen and a bathroom. It was kinda nice not needing a special map to find your room at night. There was no casino to walk through. I would recommend this as a nice place to stay for those of you out there who own timeshares.

There are around nine floors to this complex and it feels very safe and comfortable and one gets the feeling that you are coming home to your own quiet apartment. The pool is elevated and across from the main entrance of the complex. It is clean and towels are supplies for guest.
There is a new restaurant called Joey's on the 9th floor with excellent food and a fabulous view of the strip.
Everyone is so friendly and check in/out was easy. We had our own car, but there is a shuttle service that takes you shopping and to many other attractions. There is a concierge who will arrange tickets and activities if you so desire.
We really like it at the Carriage House and hope to purchase timeshare there soon so that we will have many years to enjoy this wonderful timeshare property.

There aren't activities on site other than the swimming pool and restaurant, but with the LV strip only a couple of blocks away, who cares?! I would say that if you have children, this place may be a bit boring for them as there is no game room or activity center. There is a lounge with a TV, paperback books, and magazines. A wonderful concierge is on site to help you figure out what, when, and where. Also, shuttles run three times a day to Harrah’s and to and from the airport. I believe there is even a day excursion to Laughlin scheduled from time to time.
Our unit consisted of one bedroom with a full kitchen. It was listed as sleeping six, but I think four would have been a more comfortable number unless they were your children. Our bed was very comfortable--the best we have had at any of our rentals. We did have one small problem with our unit. The shower would not drain properly for the first couple of days. Finally, we put in a trouble call one evening and within the hour, the problem was fixed.
The Carriage House was more than a place to stay--it was our refuge from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas strip. Even though we had a great time visiting the hotels, casinos, and other sights along the strip, it was always a pleasure to be able to return to the Carriage House and unwind. The Carriage House is only a couple of blocks off the strip, but it is worlds away from the glitz and glamour of it. I must admit that I did not see a lot of folks while I was there and those I did see were middle-aged or older (and quieter).
