“Great 5 Days”
Reviewed 2 June 2011

I just returned recently from Las Vegas and had a wonderful trip. Here is the lowdown.
HOTEL –
Pros - Stayed at the Marriott timeshare facility called the Marriott Grand Chateau which was one block off the strip. Called ahead and asked for a high floor and got it. I was very happy that the room was ready when we got there at 11:00 in the morning. I have stayed at timeshares before and this was no different. We had one bedroom, living room with pull-out couch, kitchen and bathroom, no balcony. The beds were comfortable, the AC worked fine, we had garbage bags, laundry detergent, microwave, toaster, everything that you should have in the room. The hotel was clean and everybody is friendly. AND A GREAT VIEW from the 26th floor. There is a convenience store in the lobby which is open 24 hrs. and they have everything you need in a pinch. The hotel has a shuttle which will take you to the grocery store, if you want. Valet parking is the only way to go at this place. The valets are really busy, especially during check-in times but only once did I have to wait longer than seven minutes for my car. The pool is very small (remember this is not a resort) and is on the roof and has a nice bar. There was always a nice breeze on the roof and it was actually relaxing there. The pool area got crowded during “happy hour”.
Cons – The girl behind the desk gave me wrong directions on my first day there. Luckily the valet gave me the right directions a few minutes later. The concierge didn’t seem to be much help. They didn’t know anything more than what I could have found myself on the computer.
Location – Perfect location. The hotel is situated one block from the strip. It is within walking distance of five or six other resort/hotels such as New York, New York, MGM, Bellagio, and Paris. It is directly across the street from Planet Hollywood and the Miracle Mile Shops which is a mall with many restaurants. It was an easy walk for breakfast or shopping.
If you like seafood, you HAVE to check out “Todai” – a seafood buffet which is in the mall across the street. Without a doubt, my best meal over the five days. We tried breakfast in the mall at a couple of places but it was really expensive and wasn’t very good. My kids went up the block one night for dinner to the Harley Davidson restaurant and they said it was very good (cheesesteak, burgers, pulled pork). We had lunch in the Mirage one day at the Carnegie Deli (pastrami, corned beef, matzoh ball soup) – delicious but, of course, expensive. We also tried the Bellagio Buffet, which supposedly is the best on the strip. It didn’t disappoint. The Mirage also had a dolphin and animal habitat for seventeen dollars which was very nice. They also have the Terry Fator Show which we saw. He’s a fabulous talent and one of the best shows in Vegas. The Bellagio Fountains was one of the highlights for me. I could stand there all night and listen to the music, which is choreographed perfectly with the fountains. There’s a show every fifteen minutes at night. And the Eiffel Tower from Paris is right across the street from there. Another highlight was the Barry Manilow Show at the Paris. He still sounds the same way he did thirty years ago. We also did a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon with Maverick (separate review) and indoor skydiving (separate review).

Room Tip: Call ahead and ask for high floor

From the MGM and Excalibur the Grand Chateau is probably about a third of the way up the Strip. It just behind the Harley Davidson restaurant so literally about 3 mins walk from the Strip. Great views – just far enough away to get a good perspective.
GC is a Marriott timeshare resort, has a fitness center, pool of sorts, free wifi and no restaurants. It was our first visit having purchased a 3 bed timeshare a couple of years ago. We had a one bed suite with separate living area. (I believe there are also smaller one bed studio-style rooms). We were shown around the 3 bedroom which was just enormous with a kitchen and kitchenette. Typical Marriott Vacation Club standard – well equipped kitchen/dining and utility, lovely living room area, loads of space, all that you could ask for.
The onsite convenience store is hideously overpriced as you would expect – only use in a dire emergency (better off walking up to the Strip, turn left and you’ll find some stores selling similar fare at a fraction of the price). The hotel does however run a free shuttle service Saturday – Tuesday mornings to a supermarket a couple of miles away where you can stock up on everything you might need. The same free shuttle runs to the Fashion Show Mall in the afternoons. You’ll need to get a ticket from the valet about 30 mins before departure to be assured a seat.
Just in case you didn’t know the GC does not have a casino which guarantees blissful tranquillity however neither do they have a decent pool – their roof top, over-crowded ‘paddling poo’l left alot to be desired - we looked at it once and never went back. Apparently a whole new pool complex is planned to be completed around 2014. We asked and were told that we could pay to use the pools at the Rio (a taxi ride away off the Strip) and Caesar’s Palace (10 min walk) as non guests – We asked at Caesar’s and a lovely chap used to let us in for nothing every day (fabulous facility by the way). Pool arrangements sorted, there really wasn’t much more we could have asked for. GC makes a great base for any Vegas trip if you want a little respite from all the madness but still close enough to everything if you want it on tap.

The hotel is in a location just off the Strip. It is easy to walk to shopping, restaurants and casinos. The room was super clean, pretty and functional and had a great view of the Strip and street action below from our upper floor room. The hotel itself was an appealing oasis from the action outside because of the non casino, non smoking premises. The large lobby is furnished with traditional style art and furniture which adds a restful aspect when stepping off the street. This is a timeshare resort property, so for those just renting a hotel room, the usual amenities of daily coffee and housekeeping are nil or by request. A good choice is to procure ground coffee and breakfast items and take advantage of the small kitchen and utensils provided to dine in room. The hotel has a grocery shuttle and a small overpriced convenience store in house for supplies. The big disappointment of the property is that there is absolutely no outdoor space except near the valet stand. The smokers congregate near this area. The rooftop pool and bar is not up to Marriott standards. The pool is tiny and the very small bar fits about 10 people and is basically a smoking area. The rooftop gets very windy, and is not kept up very well. It is decorated with fake potted plants. There are views to be had but only by leaning over a high wall. This is a quiet, clean, nice hotel otherwise so if you need only a convenient location with a calm atmosphere this is it. The valet service is complimentary and very efficient and cordial.

This is my second stay at the Grand Chateau and to sum up the experience in one word would be Comfort. The staff are super friendly, professional, and top-notch. It was hard for me to leave at the end of my stay. The valet team are not only quick to get your car (complimentary service) they were very friendly and offered to give you directions and suggestions on places to go (e.g. movies, dinner, etc.). The front desk, bell staff, and concierge were all great.

Location - While the location is just off the strip it is a 2 minute walk to the strip, The Miracle Mile, and Planet Hollywood Casino.

Room - Stayed in a 1 bedroom villa. Everything is there to give you the comfort of home. All you have to do is buy your food. Washing machines are in your room as well. The gym was nice.

Looking forward to my next visit.

THANK YOU GC for making my trip a good one.

We have been staying in Vegas each year for the last 11 years, 2009 we decided to get out of sataying at the casino's so we tried Marriott Grand Chateau, stayed again last year and have booked again for this year. Excellent value, free valat parking, location centre strip right behind Harley davidson Cafe. Would highly reccomend this hotel to anybody.
Home away from home full kitchen and in room laundry.

stayed at these location three times so far with different members of my extended family and friends.GREAT LOCATION!!!Very friendly staff.24/7 convinience store!!
no more time share presentations since marriott went the points route.
Overall, if staying with family especially young children(yes people do take their family to vegas) this is a great place as you can keep kids away from smoke and slot machines while you experience a home away from home.Roof top pool is a cool feature.

Room Tip: during the busy season marriott membership helps

I love this hotel. My parents own a timeshare here, so i've been here a couple times now. The hotel is very roomy and clean. I love that some of them have a kitchen too, because I can't afford to eat out at every meal. The only thing I'm disappointed in is the pool, because it's so tiny, also the hot tub is burning up!!!
