Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Arrived just after 2pm, first impressions if this place was 'WOW'! Check-in wasn't until 3pm but not wanting to waste a single second, we took an upgrade that allowed us immediate entry in to our suite, gave us a good view of the strip, and the volcano at the Mirage which erupts every half hour after dark. We quickly unpacked, (first time this …
... the rolls. The boys and I got all mean and tough shooting automatic weapons at an indoor range. Later mum joined us on an awesome zipline ride. It was a four stage hilltop to hilltop ride that was long, fast and thrilling. To me, Las Vegas seems to be a city besieged by a desert ready and waiting to devour it the moment the lifeline of gamblers, revellers and tourists stop coming.

Hi Cha, How are you going, is it good having to share a bathroom with Jamie, I hope she's not being too messy. Yesterday I went for a swim in one of the pools, it was lovely. Our motel was so big it has cafes an indoor garden with a big bird house in it, lots of shops - one of them would be your mums favorite it was a chocolate shop and had huge tube waterfalls of chocolate coming from the roof. We were up early today to ...
... met some guys from Sheffield who also gave us a few tips on where is good fun in Vegas. One claimed he ate 10 McDonalds burgers the night before. We had a few of these beers in our room and then heading on down to the casino bar for tequila. The bar maid charged us $8 but it was huge! Probably about 4 shots in the one glass they served us. Whilst we had these, a middle aged American woman was amused by our accents. She loved Richard’s American ...
... today isn't our day). But considering we were up $40 yesterday, our total loss today of $60 only takes us down to a loss of $20 so far for this trip. Not bad, and we are keeping within our daily limit which we use on food, souvenirs, gambling, and excursions.
Guess tomorrow will be a shopping day and we will wait to see what other trouble we can get into.

Historical Traveler Reviews Las Vegas Marriott
Much Better than the Casino
Just spent five days at the Marriott Suites on Convention Center Drive in Las Vegas. Probably the best alternative to the smokey, noise filled casinos that I have seen in LV. Very close to the strip, you can catch the monorail or walk wherever you want to go. Rooms are a small suite, but well designed and decorated. Bed was wonderful. View on the front side is of the convention center parking lot so it is pretty grim, but the back side has a partial view of Mr. Wynn's new golf course. Staff was quite good and the breakfast buffet was very good.
Very nice, very large rooms. Rooms have a sitting area with a couch, chair, desk and chair and TV. The area also has a minibar and a sink. The prices in the minibar are obscene. $3 for a can of soda. The bedroom is separated from the sitting area by a french door, very nice touch. The bathroom can be accessed from either the sitting room or the bedroom. Shampoo provided was very nice from bath and body works. There is also a tv in the bedroom. The mattress was a very comfortable pillowtop mattress. The bedding consisted of about 10 pillows and a down-filled comforter. The parking is free now. The location is a bit off the beaten bath. There is no casino. It is pretty close to the monorail station. I booked this room through priceline for a very good rate 75% of the rate if booked through the Marriott site.
My husband and I are not gamblers, so we wanted to stay at a nice, quiet hotel near the strip for a long weekend. I am particular about where I stay, and this hotel met my criteria. The bed and bedding were wonderfully soft, and the room was spotless. The bathroom was large with a separate shower and bathtub. All employees were very friendly and helpful. We would not shy away from this hotel on our next visit to Las Vegas!
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights (Dec. 26th to the 29th, 2005) and highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing place to stay near "The Strip". We are not gamblers, so our visit to Las Vegas was for shopping, dining, relaxing and a side Christmas visit to Zion National Park.
Being renovated until Dec 15th, 05
I stayed at the Marriott suites because it has a great location, NO casino, and less buzz. But this time i was subjected to infrequent hammering. They are renovating the hotel floor by floor and have a few left. They start hammering around 7a till late afternoon. I was woken up a few times around--7a, 830a, and 1p. I stay at this hotel because it is out of the hub-bub of Vegas. It is on a wide side street with little traffic, between Las Vegas Blvd and Paradise Rd. This gives you quick and easy access to any direction.
I did not eat at the hotel. They have a very limited buffet that is overpriced. I usually at breakfast at the Paris Buffet-$12.95 plus tip.
This is a great place to stay once the renovations are complete.
I stayed here for 3 nights (March 30-June 2, 2005) and highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to escape the hubba-bubba and mayhem of the LV strip. It's a quiet, high quality business hotel on Convention Ctr. Blvd., next to Pieros's Italian Restaurant and just 2 businesses away from The Beach, a hot nightspot.
Much better than a casino hotel
For me, the best part of this hotel was that it did not have a casino and it was just off the strip. It was a block and a half walk to the Convention Center monorail station. It was very nice to return to this hotel after wandering thru the maze of smoke and noise in the casinos in the hotels on the Strip. The hotel was very quiet so it was a nice respite after a long night on the Strip.
The room was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The e-mail at the Business Center cost $3.95 for 15 minutes.
A great experience
A beautiful two room suite with french doors to the bedroom. Upscale furnishings throughout. A two room marble and travertine bath. USA Today at the door in the morning and in room coffee maker as well as a mini fridge, (also a stocked and expensive mini-bar). No charge for parking, evidently this is a new policy. The common areas are neat and clean and again a cut above. The absence of slots machines was appreciated, made for a quiet stay. Just a couple of blocks and you are on the strip. I had my reservation through Priceline and not a comment when I checked in or out, just "Welcome to the Marriott."
Once again unable to get a room at my usual Las Vegas haunts for business, I decided to try this property, right next door to the Marriott Residence Inn Convention Center. Unlike the Residence Inn, which was clearly a great value for families, this property was more upscale, with well-appointed suites, nice furniture, standard business equipment (work desk, internet access, ironing board, etc.). The hotel restaurant had a pretty nice lounge/sports bar along with a business casual restaurant that was reasonably priced with good service and pretty good food. It was not at all the stereotypical Las Vegas Lounge Lizard type of place, and could easily accomodate business travelers or even families with older children. There is no casino or any signs of gambling in the property, another nice option for those travelers wanting to escape the noise and bustle of that activity; there are plenty of casinos within walking distance, including the Hilton only three (long) blocks away. The previous reviewer very accurately described other features; I also bristled at the $5 parking fee (it dropped $5 since his/her stay), but overall enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and if you can garner a room for $100 or less (I got one at $79 per night), it's a good value.
I stayed there last year for business and was tempted by its rate and pictures of the hotel on a travel website. The facilities look new and very well kept. The room is a spacious, two-room suite with a sitting room and a bedroom, separated by a french door. The sitting room has a business desk, which is facing a wall so it's not confortable to work and watch TV at the same time. They charge $10 per day for Internet access and long distance calls. My stay was great and the employees are very cordial. What ticked me off was that they charged $10 for parking.
