The staff there is very willing to please. This was the first resort that checked me in hours earlier than normal check-in time. That meant a lot to us, since we had a three-hour time difference and were traveling with small children.
Our one-bedroom was spacious and had two pull-out sofa beds. The kitchen was equipped with just the essentials, and the older-model microwave took some getting used to. However, we had everything we needed. At night, we experienced a decent view of the Strip, although construction nearby is blocking some of the views.
The Carriage House provides significant information to you months before your arrival, which was also a plus for me. You can communicate through email, and the response is fast. This helped me to plan my stay ahead of time. Upon arrival, you are showered with even more details in a welcome package.
Transportation is provided from and to the airport.
There is a restaurant on the top floor of the resort, but my family and I didn't try it. Many restaurants deliver, and we took advantage of that. The Carriage House gives you many menus in your package as well.
There is a nice pool and Jacuzzi. The tennis court is located on top of a parking garage. There is a basketball goal on the tennis court, but if you over-throw the ball, it could easily end up over the fence, and the game is over.
If I am traveling with my family, I will definitely stay here again.

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).

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.

Our rooms faced the Strip, which provided beautiful sunsets and beautiful nightly views of the Strip hotels. The pool was small, clean, and enclosed with gate entry activated by room cards. There were no amenities or activities in this resort, but if you are without children, none are needed.
Carriage House is sandwiched between the MGM Grand on one side and Aladdin on the other side and is within walking distance to the Strip (a long two blocks). There is a food store located nearby for supplies, but a car would be needed.

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.
