Grandview is located at the south end of Las Vegas Blvd, about a 10-minute drive farther south from Mandalay. Bing said as long as you don't feel like you need to be right in the middle of all the happening in/on the strip, it is a good location and it is also very close to the Las Vegas Outlets formerly know as Bells Outlets.Check in is fairly simple and fast. People are very courteous and helpful. They do offer several free shows or discounts to shows if you attend their owners meetings (let them attempt to sell you a timeshare). If you do buy (I am an owner here) Grandview operates on points so make sure you ask for points and also it has the highest point exchange in Vegas.The overall amenities are decent to good with improvements happening. It has a nice pool area and arcade that kids will love. They are supposed to build like 8 towers, or something ridiculous like that, so there is still much more to be built; I think they only have 3 towers so far. But construction noise might be a problem depending on where you stay at. But for the most part the noise didn't bother me or my family. Another plus is that the South Coast Casino is next door within walkable distance. It is a decent sized local casino. It has a bowling alley and a theater. Another good thing about the South Coast is that it has a Daycare that is open until 3am. I believe Grandview has one also but you have to be on premises to use it.The rooms are a decent sized and comfortable. The Kitchen is a full kitchen with modern appliances. The bedroom has a King bed. And the Living room has a sleeper sofa. The bathroom is a Jack'n Jill type with a Jacuzzi tub. Overall it a is quite nice hotel.For me the Grandview is a great place to stay. But then my family and I come to Vegas several times a year and I have actually live in Vegas for a few month at one time so I don't need that first timers or once every few year timers experience. (You can only keep going to the Strip so many times) So I wouldn't suggest this place for someone looking for the party all night walk the strip experience. Your better off looking at its sister timeshare the Polo Towers. While it is quite older (a lot older) it is right in the thick of things. I'm not saying that you can't get a true Vegas experience from here but it's not as convenient as the Polo Towers are; even Las Vegas Hilton now that the tramway is built and operating.

The resort was still under construction and farther from the Strip than we had expected. There were numerous shuttles throughout the day, which made up for its location. There was a new casino under construction next door to the resort that will be a very nice addition to the resort for future stays. It is scheduled to be completed in February 2006. Check-in was easy. We signed up for the tour so we could be updated on the resort construction status. That was very informative. The accommodations were very nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice to be away from the Strip and hubbub. It had a very relaxing atmosphere, even though construction was going on.
Pool towels were provided in the room, which was very nice, since you did not have to track them down. The shuttle did make a store run, but only on a certain day, which did not work out for us, as we were late check-ins, so we had no food in our room other than vending-machine stuff and restaurant leftovers. We could have gotten a taxi to take us, but we just shuttled to the Strip instead. There was nice restaurant across the highway, which was very nice and not expensive at all. Getting across with the traffic was not as bad as we had anticipated either. This is our home resort and we were very happy with it and will visit there numerous times over the years. We had no complaints at all with the facility or the staff. There was A+ service.

A drive to Hoover Dam is only an hour away. Tours to the Grand Canyon take about 12 hours.
Best Things About the Resort:The main lobby building, which is separate from the towers, has a great Internet room for those who like to check on their email, so you can leave your computer at home. It also contains a RCI Exchange office where you can book your next destination or get help with RCI, like we did, as we are new to timeshares!
The pool area is very relaxing, with the two large pools tiered and separated by a waterfall.
Resort Experience:The Grandview lives up to its name. The accommodations are first-rate.
Each unit is complete with a large kitchen that is completely equipped; a large dining/living area with a large TV and DVD player and sleeper sofa; a bedroom with a king-size bed, TV, DVD armoire; and a Jacuzzi room that opens through an open arch (very romantic) with a closet. There is a separate bathroom with double sinks and enclosed shower.
A beautiful view of the mountains and lights of the city can be seen from the rooms.
The unit is set up in a circle-type arrangement, so you can enter the bedroom from the living room, then go into the bathroom. You can then enter the kitchen into the dining/living area or go the other way.
This is unit A. Unit B is a mirror image of this unit. There is a privacy entranceway, with the units connecting from there. If you are using both units, the doors can be kept open with privacy from the hallway.
The pool area is gorgeous, with two pools and two whirlpools with a waterfall connecting the two areas. There is an arcade game room next to this area. They have an Internet room in the lobby building separate from the towers.
I would recommend a car, but they run a shuttle to the strip from 10am to 2pm every day. From there, you can get a monorail to the rest of the strip or downtown. The airport is 3 away miles and very convenient. Going to the beginning of the Strip is 6 miles away.
Construction is going on in the next tower (two are complete, with a total of 10, and each is 12 stories), but the noise is very low, even at the pool area.
Right next store, a new casino is being built. It should open by the end of 2005. This will make it REALLY convenient to party. It is to have a movie theatre and equestrian center.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
A shuttle runs to the end of the Strip, where a monorail can be taken to other casinos on the Strip or the downtown area. It runs until 2am.
We would recommend a car for more independence, to explore other casinos off the Strip, and to tour Hoover Dam, 1 hour away, or the Grand Canyon, 12 hours round-trip. Tours are run to both, but we would rather spend our money at the casinos!
We will definitely be going back to the Grandview!

The only problem with this place is that there is no security!! We were burglarized in our vehicle in their parking lot and lost everything we had. They told us they had insurance and that we would be taken care of. When we got home, we were told they couldn't help us, as their insurance did not cover theft in their parking lots!! They say that they have security, but nobody we talked to has ever seen it. We will not be returning there.

This is a brand-new facility, so the rooms were nice. The rooms are big and comfortable. The shuttle bus will take you to the strip, but be prepared to walk a lot. The best recommendation is to get a car. We went without one and probably saved half of the car rental using taxis. The facility has three buildings and is planning on having a total of 20 when it is done, so it will be a huge place when complete.
The South Coast casino is going on next door, and that will help this place a whole lot. The pool area and workout facility were very nice.
Since it is new, there were salespeople marching through all day every day with prospective clients from the Strip. They never even approached us, which was very nice. They are not pushy in this place. If you want a place for the kids, this will work out great.
