This hotel is off the very south end of the Strip across the street from the Las Vegas Premium Outlets - South. From what I can tell, this hotel is pretty new, looks nice, and the staff is friendly and responsive, with some caveats. The rooms look very nice, with a flat screen tv. There is a small freestanding, not built-in, closet. Bathroom lighting is too dim for my taste and my wife complained she could not do her makeup it was so dim. A lot of hotels are like this to save money, so we made sure to bring a freestanding lamp from our house to compensate. The bathroom faucet is about the stingiest I have ever seen. They use some kind of restrictor to minimize water waste. Thank goodness no such issues with the shower head. You get free wifi, but it was spotty at times. The beds were comfortable. The small refrigerator that is provided was too noisy for sleeping so I turned the inside switch to off during the night. We arrived in the evening and left the room about 9AM to go out for the day and returned about 3PM to find that the room had not been made. About 1 1/2 hours later the maid came to do the room but we were using the shower to get ready to go to a party and my wife complained to the maid about the room not being done and she said they were behind due to low staffing. We called the front desk and I was able to get 2 sets of towels within a few minutes so it was no big deal. They do offer a free "breakfast" including do-it-yourself waffles, an assortment of teas and coffees, a variety of cheap cereals in those dispensor tubes, some yogurt, small muffins, some odd looking eggs, potatoes, biscuits, sausages, oatmeal, apple and cranberry juice... but no fruit, not even apples. Are they against fiber? I resisted most of the useless calories that were offered and had some oatmeal with raisins and some juice. It satisfied until I could go elsewhere for something better. Since the food was included in the price, I suppose I shouldn't complain. Holiday Inn Express has a similar "free" breakfast, but they at least give you fruit like apples and bananas and fresh baked cinnamon rolls . Overall, it was still a good deal and the place is new, clean, and looks very nice.
