We stayed at an excellent group rate for a soccer tournament. Several people in our group changed their reservations to arrive a day later; somehow the communication went awry and when they didn't show up for the original scheduled date, the hotel gave away their rooms AND charged them for one night's stay. Since we were working through a third party travel agent I don't know whose fault that was.
Our stay was no problem, the room was a well-disguised basic room, clean & comfortable. I'll give the room a few extra points for crown moulding and nice wallpaper in the bathroom. The shower was almost a light sprinkle, and when flushing the toilet it sounded like an explosion so there could be no discreet middle-of-the-night potty visit. Earlier in the day when we didn't want to take the elevator we asked a couple employees plus got on the house phone but nobody seemed to know where the stairs were. (Wouldn't that be important in a fire?) It turned out the stairs were right next to our room at the end of the hall. The walls were fairly thin and we could hear people walking up & down the metal stairs and also voices in the room next door/above/below. Fortunately we didn't have noisy neighbors or we might have had a hard time sleeping. We also had to go through a couple employees to find out where the "cardio room" (exercise facility) was. It was nowhere near the pool, and consisted of a small room with 2 treadmills, an elliptical and one exercise bike. They did charge a resort fee that included the "free" high speed wireless internet, which was discounted for the group rate. However, on the first night, only my computer could successfully access the internet wirelessly while my daughter's could not, and the next two days neither of us could but it worked if we plugged it in, and the cord was included in the room.
We had four people in our room and they didn't give us enough towels, but the maids were readily available, very friendly & accommodating. If you go online, you can get a free "boarding pass" that will get you discounted meals at the buffet, which was decent. There was more food than you would ever need at both the dinner and breakfast buffets; it was typical good buffet food. The Italian restaurant, San Lorenzo, however, was excellent in both food and service. There was plenty of parking, safe, covered and pretty close to the front door, although there was no way to pull up the the door to unload luggage. The hotel location is several miles north of the strip, which was fine for us because we all had cars and the soccer tournament was our main activity.
I liked the fact that the restaurants, movie theatre, bowling alley, Starbucks, etc, were a short walk from the elevator. In other hotels it's almost a day hike to get to the other side of the hotel. If you want the total Las Vegas experience you'd be better off paying more and staying on the strip, but overall this was an excellent value to eat & sleep but still a close drive to all the attractions.
