We snagged a great rate for our mid-week trip at $60/night directly from the Monte Carlo website. An upgrade to a higher floor and a view of the Strip was an extra $20/night. At check-in, we found out that for $35/night extra (instead of the $20), we could upgrade to the concierge level. Why not?
A concierge is on duty on the top (32nd) floor from 7am to 11pm daily. Breakfast, lunch, and cocktails are in the lounge throughout the day. And we still got a lovely view of the Strip in our two-bed, nonsmoking room.
Having the food available was perfect for us. A light breakfast of fruit, pastries, yogurt, and orange juice each morning was a perfect start to the day. After a few hours at the pool, a light lunch of rolls with fresh lunchmeats (roast beef, turkey, ham, or salami) and raw vegetables and dip was refreshing. Because the temperature was hovering around 100°F, we also made good use of the water bottles, taking two each every time we ate.
The concierge service was nice to have, though we didn’t use it much. When I asked the first concierge the best way to get to the Barry Manilow show, he had to ask me which hotel it was in. I was surprised a concierge didn’t know in which hotels the major shows were playing. It would also have been nice if there were a computer and printer on the concierge level to print out boarding passes. I had to go to the second-floor business center and wait 45 minutes for one of the two computers to free up. I thought that a laptop on the counter would have been nice for those of us who only needed about 60 seconds to print a boarding pass. About four other people came in behind me to print their boarding passes but gave up.
The pool area includes a lazy river, wave pool, and children’s pool. We enjoyed the lazy river very much. The wave pool was too cold, however, despite the high air temperature. Tubes are available for rent. Some people were smart and brought their own inexpensive tubes from home. I know they can be purchased at Wal-Mart for about $1. Despite the beautiful landscape, I was a little disappointed in the pools. It was not a very large space overall. Chairs in the sun were all taken when we arrived around 10am. By the time we left a couple of hours later, newcomers were like vultures waiting for us to vacate our chairs.
Tip: Sign up for the Players Club (it’s free) and receive a late checkout with no hassle.

Taxis and shuttles drop off at the back entrance of the hotel, which is where check-in is located. It is nice not to have drag your bags through the casino to get to check-in and room elevators.
The rooms were an average size, with two queen beds and sitting area with desk. All rooms have an iron and ironing board as well as a high dryer. The soaps, shampoo and lotions were superior to most hotels. Rooms are decorated in dark, rich colors and were very clean.
The pool area was fabulous with a large sun deck (with both shady and sunny areas), a swimming pool, wave pool, and an inner tube rafting area. Plenty to do for everyone.
There is also a large, well laid out casino - very easy to find your way around. There are lots of restaurants ranging from coffee shop, buffet, steak house, fine dining and a food court.
Overall I really liked the hotel and its facilities and found it to be a great value.

The room was very clean, and as far as standard rooms go, it was a very good size. The rate was very reasonable considering that this place is on the strip. The cost for 5 nights was $506. That was with taxes and over a weekend. That rate was booked about a month in advance over the phone through the hotel. The hotel rate was cheaper than Orbitz and Travelocity.
The room was cleaned everyday. We had a safe in the room for all the cash and jewelry. The room had high-speed DSL connection ($10 a day) and a very good TV. I'll have reviews for the restaurants later.
