The outlet mall is the closest thing to the resort. The resort is off-strip but close enough to other hotels, like MGM, Luxor, Excalibur, and Mandalay Bay.
Best Things About the Resort:
The best thing about this resort is that it's away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip. It's also pretty close to several restaurants, although there is no restaurant inside the resort. There is a lazy river around the swimming pool and a BBQ grill and washer/dryer units inside each unit.
We had a slight problem with check-in at first, since we arrived before the 4pm check-in time. I asked if our room was ready, but the staff was so unorganized that I became frustrated. I decided to come back later. We went to pick up our show tickets and eat dinner to kill time, then returned to check in. This time, check-in went smoothly.
This was my first stay in a two-bedroom, two-bath unit at the Las Vegas resort. The difference between a one-bedroom unit and a two-bedroom unit is dramatic. My father was impressed with the place. My aunt and uncle were surprised at how big and comfortable the unit was. They exclaimed, "This place is nicer than our house!"
The unit was equipped with the usual washer and dryer, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator, and dishes for six. There was a master bedroom with master bathroom and a second bedroom with twin beds. I was surprised at how narrow the beds were, since I had never seen a twin that narrow. There was a Murphy bed in the living room and a fireplace. Since Las Vegas was so cold in the winter, the first thing I did was turn on the fireplace when I got in. The kitchen was equipped with complimentary coffee, tea, and clothes detergent. The only problem was that all except one of our bathroom soap bars were broken into pieces. Most likely, the maids had dropped a box of soap bars and didn’t realize that the bars were shattered into small pieces.
In the morning, I gave my father, aunt, and uncle a brief tour of the place. We checked out the gym, the computer area, the game room, and the gift shop. They left feeling very good about the resort. Check-out was smooth, as always.
