TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott's Grand Chateau Las Vegas
On arrival we were given the 29th floor and had a great view. The Unit was large and fully met our requirements in that it even had a kettle. It had all amenities one would expect in a household and was spotless on arrival. The only downside were the alterations going on but no actual disruption was caused to us because of the added safety precautions. Lifts worked well and there was a shuttle that assisted us on three ocasions. A nice touch. One of the best things was the location which was central to most things. Service was excellent and staff we dealt with were all helpful and friendly. Would use this place next time.

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott's Grand Chateau Las Vegas
I'm a frequent Marriott traveler and a Marriott timeshare owner. Am not sure whether our stay at Grand Chateau was "different" because it's so much a city hotel or whether its view of ambiance is different. I LOVE the vacation experience in the other MVCI units I've stayed in -- this one was "just OK". The pool is too small for the number of guests (yes -- they will build another -- but in some years from now); the floral arrangements are all FAKE -- even fake roses up by the pool -- c'mon now...
The hot tub is often broken... On the plus side--
the front desk staff is nice -- the valet service is fast and polite, and location (except for the surrounding traffic problems due to construction -- which isn't their fault) is good -- we walked to Alladin, Bellagio, Paris...and one day walked all the way to the Wynn (but I wouldn't recommend that!)
The one bedroom we had must have been a part of a three bedroom unit -- because it had a very small stove and dishwasher (amost like you get in efficiencies at other MVCI units). I expected what a usual one bedroom (master suite) is like.
On balance -- it was an OK week in Las Vegas -- by the way --the concierge isn't soo good -- she's more busy selling people on taking tours -- arrrgh...
I traded my one bedroom in Aruba for it -- not sure it was an 'even trade'...but a learning experience!
Decent with minor annoyances
This is a time share property that's located a few blocks from the strip. The one bedroom is large with sunken tub, double shower head in shower stall. Plasma TV on wall in living room. Small flat screen in bedroom. As I understand it, you will be able to book this as a hotel through Marriott's web site although a time share. They explained to me that the days they sell as hotel, "members" are trading or giving away their week, so Marriott is able to sell it.
My 3 days stay here was a mixed bag. Lots of construction on the street leading to and on the Hotels location. The traffic light to turn onto the street the hotel was located on backed up and took at least 20 mins to make it through the light.
The valet at this hotel is great. They did not seem to be pushy about tips as one reviewer noted. Always had my car ready when I called down before leaving to go out.
The hotel bed was surprisingly hard; In fact I didn't sleep well because of this. Nice large tub in room, but I to wonder why not have Jacuzzi jets in the tub. I raised this question to the staff and was told, it would keep guest awake if the tubs had whirlpool jets. I didn't quite understand that explanation until that very night, when someone in the room next door to me began to fill their tub, sounded like a 747 aircraft landing in my room. Was unbelievable loud? This place does allot of time share business and when they feel they can't sucker, errr... sell you anything, they want you out. Check out was at 11 am but received a knock on my door at 9 am, I opened the door to find a hotel manager looking at me like..."your still here" ?? When I mentioned check out was at 11 am, he glared at me a moment, mumbled something into he walkie talkie, and walked away, didnt say a word to me. As far as the time share presentation itself, seemed very shady to me. They wouldn't let me look at a Marriott property book, making a lame excuse someone else needed it at the very moment I wanted to look at it, Gee I hope they had more than one.. They process allot of people in a day, you see them though out the day inside the hotel giving tours. Time share not to bad pressure wise but you have to be firm if not interested. If you happen to be interested, good luck, they want you to sign and get out, not allot of time for questions, I guess they feel you can figure that out later on your own.
The best part of the location here is across the street the Aladdin hotel casino, now Planet Hollywood hotel casino is within a very short walk. I enjoyed having access to casino/shops, restaurant without, drving to the strip. I would not want to walk to the strip from here, its do able but farther then they claim.
The staff here is very friendly. The pool on top of the tower is small and the Jacuzzi was not working on the days I was there. I understand after the 3rd tower is complete they will have a larger pool area.
I don't think I will stay here again; the construction on the street to the hotel makes it difficult to enter the hotel. The rooms are nice, but really, how much time do you spend in your room in Vegas anyway?
Quiet location just off the Las Vegas Strip. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this location to anyone and certainly would stay here again.
Long Weekend - Very relaxing
My wife and I stayed at the Grand Chateau as part of a deal to see if we'd like to buy into Marriott's vacation club. So it's hard to compare to a standard hotel in regards to service as the place was not full of people thus staff was available at all times.
Facility was outstanding. There is construction going on as they have only built 1 of 4 wings but the lobby, rooms and common areas were emaculate. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and the Valet Parking staff was right on top of your needs. They allowed you to call down early so your car would be waiting. We stayed in a 1 bedroom which was the standard sized hotel room. Very nice fixture, had a refridgerator, toaster, small sink and stocked with dishes. The 2 and 3 bedroom units were unbelievable with flat panel screen TVs, full kitchens and a lot of space. The 3 bedroom was like a house in regards to the kitchen, dining room, livin room and 3 bedrooms. The bathrooms where top of the line bathrooms you'd expect to see in a house. The wireless internet was very fast which made our vegas research much easier to do before we head out on the town.
The location was great as it is 100 yards off the strip, right next to the Alladin and MGM Grand. Pool was located on the top roof and was small. Seems to be a temporary pool until additional wings are added and the 5th floor will have a larger pool.
Overall a very nice place to stay in Las Vegas but being a Vacation Club resort would not be open to the public.
We arrived very tired, from England, to stay a week in a 1 bedroom + pullout bed, studio. Just a few minutes by taxi from the airport was great after such a long flight. It was a lovely room with large bathroom - just like to point out here that this room would be no good for 2 couples as the bedroom/kitchen/diner is all one room, so no privacy for separate couples. Also there was no cooker, just a microwave and toaster. We didn't mind as we don't cook much on holiday!
The position of this hotel/timeshare is great - 2 minutes from The Strip but with no noise! Walk through the Aladdin shopping mall and it brings you out near the Bellagio - VERY central. Staff were all courteous and helpful - especially reception.
We had a fantastic time; there is so much to do in Las Vegas - and would definitely go back again.
Loved the Marriott!
Perfect location, great views from the rooms everything was clean and superb! Staff always kind and friendly, especially concierge! Beds were super comfy, as well as the rooms were spacious and livable. Dual shower heads were a great feature, as close as i got to having a massage! and the roman tub in the room was very relaxing after a night of partying and gambling. Deff reccommend the grand chataeu, only down fall is they pushed a little too much about buying a timeshare. Also the mandatory valet was nice but often times a little pushy about getting tipped.The car was always pulled up right to the front and waiting. We stayed for a week at the Grand, and tipped most of the time, but everyday for 3/4 times is a little bit much.
Great Stay at the Grand Chateau
We just returned from a week long stay at the Marriott Grand Chateau in Las Vegas. We had a great stay. The staff was very friendly particularly in the marketplace shop and the concierge. We used the fitness center and the pool on a daily basis and appreciated the fact that we were steps away from "The Strip" but could get away from the crowds/noise. We were in a 1 bedroom suite with 2 adults/2 kids and the suite was perfect. Outside noise was no problem at all and we all enjoyed the plasma screen TV, dual headed shower and extra large tub. The kitchen was well supplied and we took advantage of cooking for ourselves on a number of occassions. We look forward to the expansion and to returning in the future. We also found the valet parking to be nice as we didn't have to walk to/from our car and it was always waiting for us when we got to the door.
Beautiful New Hotel
I stayed for 1 week in a 2 bedroom corner suite. The unit was immaculate. The building is only a couple of months old. Incredible views in 3 directions - Las Vegas Strip and the mountains. Very spacious and comfortable for 6 adults.Dining table seats 8! Full spacious kitchen with built-in Asko washer and dryer.Huge Master ensuite windowed bathroom with huge separate shower stall and dual heads.Large Plasma screen TV in Living Room and additional TVs in each of the 2 bedrooms which were at opposite ends of the suite - great layout for privacy and late night casino gamblers. No gambling in the hotel which is a relief from everywhere else in Vegas. You only have to cross the street and you are already in the Dessert Passage Mall (part of the Aladin Casino) which takes you indoors right to the strip.Staff was great.Excellent gym and pleasant rooftop pool.The only negative comments - Valet parking only which was a nuisance for quick in and outs and the air slots on the bottom of the windows do not seal and lock shut which does allow some street noise into the suite.
Great rooms and very friendly staff
My husband and I went for the weekend and loved it.. The 1 bedroom villa was awesome. We had a view of the strip. The staff was so friendly. The pool was a little small but the view from roof top was incredible. It was our anniversary and we had balloons and a small gift waiting when we arrived. The dual shower was great and we found the water pressure to be fine. Just a short walk to the strip. It was accually nice to come back from the casino and not hear the slot machine nose!!! We would stay here again in a heart beat.... The pictures we have are the same as the person prior to me so I will not put them in here.
Excellent Location and Spacious Rooms
We just got back from a week-long trip in Las Vegas where we stayed in a three-bedroom/three-bathroom villa at Marriott's Grand Chateau. Our party consists of six adults and two children, age 2 and 7. Overall we had a wonderful experience.
The villa, which is an end-unit on the 26th floor, is made of one two-bedroom suite and adjoining one one-bedroom suite sharing a common foyer. Both suites are equipped with full kitchen (with tableware and cookware), living room, dining area, and washer/dryer. The differences between these two suites are as follows.
1. The kitchen, living room and dinning area of the two-bedroom suite are larger.
2. The two-bedroom suite has 42-inch Sony plasma TV and DVD player in its living room, while the one-bedroom has a traditional CRT monitor TV.
3. The bathroom in the master suite of two-bedroom has separate bath tub and shower.
If you can, try to get a three-bedroom villa because it offers great views of both north and south sides of the Strip. From the two-bedroom suite, we can see the north side of the Strip, including adjacent Aladdin, Bellagio, Paris, Bally's, Wynn Resort and Stratosphere. From the one-bedroom suite, we can see the nearby MGM Grand, Monte Carlo across the street, Luxor, New York New York, and others. If the view is not that great in your room, you can always go to the roof top (38th floor) that is open to hotel guests up to 11pm. The panoramic view of the Strip during the evening is simply breath taking.
In summary, the positive points are:
1. There were plenty of spaces in the suites and all the rooms are well appointed.
2. You cannot beat the location. It is about five hundred feet from the Strip, and it took us around 10 minutes to walk to Bellagio and 15 minutes to MGM Grand.
3. The staffs were all very friendly and efficient. We spend less than two minutes during the check-in process.
4. There is an on-site shop Market Place, which carries milk, bottled water, over-the-counter medications, eggs, breads, etc. The price was reasonable compared to the on-site stores in other hotels we have stayed before. If you think the price is still too high at Market Place, you can walk to Walgreen, a nearby pharmacy, to get lots of stuffs that have even lower prices. The Market Place is open 24 hours.
5. The Grand Chateau offers free high speed wireless internet access to its guests throughout the property.
The areas that we are not completely satisfied were as follows.
1. The roof top swimming pool is too small. Since Marriott is still building the other three wings (for a total of four wings), I think it may expand the swimming pool when the whole complex is completed by year 2015.
2. The water pressures of shower heads were on the low side compared to other hotels in Las Vegas. The water temperatures were not consistent as well.
3. The sound proof in the villa was below average. We can hear the traffic noise from I-15 and Las Vegas Boulevard.
We have taken some photos. Enjoy.

Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
We awoke to our last morning in a national park so we decided one last early morning hike would be a good way to say goodbye to this part of the honeymoon. In a way it feels like the trip is ending today but we still have Vegas to go. We will both miss this part of the trip though, it's amazing how a good hike through such natural beauty can melt …
Well After trying all ways to not have to stay at Las Vegas on our way from South Rim Grand Canyon to Los Angeles and being unable to find any other option, we booked the Marriott Grand Chateau to stay in because it did not have a casino in it. That was a very good option as it was really nice, away from it all but close enough to walk everywhere …
... so we were quickly in and shooting. Mum opted out, so she served as our camerawoman for the time we were there. Even though I know the amazing amount of power a shotgun or rifle has, it's still surprising once you pull the trigger. Smelling like gunpowder, we turned up shockingly early to the Excaliber hotel where we would later be picked up to head to Bootleg Canyon. It seems that in Vegas that if you want to get anywhere you have to go walk through hundreds of metres ...
... plane to New York, which takes about 6 hours. I'm looking forward to having a sleep in as we have been up very early every day. I had a photo taken with Spider-Man, so I will send it to you. Did I tell you our motel had a water show in front of it and the water went up 100 meters high, higher than the buildings. We went to a show called Vegas last night, it was in a huge casino and shopping mall and the roof of the mall ...
Just returned back from another day perusing the strip and checking out different hotels and attractions. I went in the Mirage hotel at lunch and saw that they had a dolphin training centre so headed along to this to check it out. Was $20 to enter and once in it had two training pools, a main pool and underground viewing platforms. All in all it was pretty cool. Was very tempted to do the "day with the dolphins" if the price ...
