Would just love to have some weetbix for breakfast or vegemite on toast even oh and milo I miss my milo too. And even a home cooked meal, over eating out and trying to decided what I want to eat each meal. After relaxing so somewhat this afternoon we went and had do nee down at ...

There is the largest grouping of Joshua Trees in the country, they were sprawled as far as the eye could see. We drove through Baker which has the worlds largest thermometer sitting on the side of the highway in the desert. We stopped for our comfort break at a Ghost Town called Calico in 1896 keeping the west alive. It was the largest silver mining town ...

In the hope of seeing the picture-postcard views of Bryce, R snuck out before dawn to the rim. T woke up and was desperate to find out the Ashes score, but we had no WiFi or mobile reception. After a cloud rIdge rudely delayed the dawn, the valley floor was looking glorious.. Clouds started billowing up from the valley floor to give spectacular views. Off to breakfast (lots more gushing waitress chat) and then we did the 3 mile Navajo trail and Queen's Garden ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa Las Vegas
We returned from Red Rock last night & are looking forward to staying at this Property in October again. Because we live in a tourist destination, we were looking forward to our stay off the Strip this time. The atmosphere is more relaxed & the willing staff is eager to share their recommendations.
What a marvelous new hotel and casino. The rooms are simply luxurious. The beds gave me the best nights sleep I've had in years and the view in the morning of Red Rocks, well... (I'm sure someone will build a high-rise across the road to block this view soon). The only down side is the distance from the "Strip" and the slots seemed pretty tight. (Guess they are trying to pay for this place in the first year) Never mind that, just give me one more night in that bed!
We stayed at the hotel on April 19, the first fulll day it was open to the public. This is a magnificent property. Unlike other hotels in Las Vegas, it is elegant without being ostentatious. It may very well be the only hotel in Las Vegas that does not try to be "somewhere else." This place is not Venice or Monte Carlo or Egypt; it is Nevada. The red and earth-toned decor throughout the hotel complements the nearby Red Rock Canyon.
I stayed at the Red Rock for three nights from April 30 to May 3. My goal was to hike Red Canyon in the mornings and then relax and eat dinner rather than doing the more typical Vegas trip so I purposely chose the off-the-strip location.
I can't quite put my finger on what I didn't like about the Red Rocks, but in the future, I plan on staying at the JW Marriott. I was there for work, so my company paid for the trip, and I didn't get to see the pool, etc. But, they did charge a $19.95 "Resert Fee" which seems shady. I'd rather have you charge me $20 more per night than bury the charge in some random item. The decor is very modern, rooms are neat, dark wood, walls, with some highlights of color. 42" plasma TV's in each room. They are still under construction, so there is some noise. Also, it is no where near the strip, so if that is what you are going for, don't stay here. Lines for most restaurants were out the door and long, so I only ate at the food court (Baja Fresh). There was 'security' to make sure non-guests didn't go up the elevators, although they weren't there when I came back from dinner at 11pm every night. Apparently, the need for 'security' ends when it gets dark out. Maybe the place seemed 'cold' or something, but I probably won't go back. Don't get me wrong - it's everything it promises to be, but just not my style.
Hello all. Just returned from Las Vegas. Here's my report on the new Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa.
Just got back from 5 days at the New Red Rock. The decor of the hotel is very cutting edge NYC ish. As a former NY'r I thought this was great. Very well done with blacks and reds and sleek styles. If you want to go to the strip and you rent a car the fastest way is to take 215 to Flamingo Rd exit. It will take you right to the middle of the strip. It took about 25 min as there are lights. The area is very built up. If you take Charleston ave there is mega shopping there. I was slightly annoyed that they charge a $19.95 per day "resort fee". There is no golf there etc so I asked what it is for. They informed me it was not included in the package rate because it isnt a hotel fee, it is a resort fee. Kindly explain the difference to me! Anyhoo, it is for the free USA today newspaper they provide, use of the gym, transfers to and from the strip/airport and also included is pressing of your clothes should you need it. As far as I am concerned, the only thing of all these I used was I read the newspaper which last time I looked cost a $1. So it cost me an extra $100. I think this is important to mention to all future visitors, especially those on a budget. The buffet was average. I do no eat sushi or exotic food like that, so I cannot judge how that was. Another small gripe was the hotel was still being built, so there was banging and cranes working directly above where the pool was. At first it was interesting to watch it operate, but that got stale after about 1/2 hour. Also, the chaises, while very comfortable if you are lying down, do not adjust at all, so if you want to eat or read, you have to sit up on the edge. I saw people holding their books up in the air to read. Hardly comfortable for more than 5 minutes. I ordered a strawberry daquiri by the pool. It was $10. I would not have blinked if it was $5 but for $10 plus the tip, it was too much. This is my first review on trip advisor and I hope others find this info helpful. Although I have been to vegas at least a dozen times, this time I read many reviews on this site regarding restaurants, shows etc and it was really very informative. Good luck to all.
I just want anyone who is going to be staying at the BEAUTIFUL new Red Rock Resort and Spa to be aware that the hotel is sitll growing which means construction overhead. We were in room 12129 and I would not advise staying in that room or anyone that is close by. The construction started early morning and lasted until 7pm. The rooms are wonderful, not that you spend that much time in them, but if you wanted to sleep in or take a nap.....it won't happen. When we complained, we were offered, ear plugs!!!!! Can you believe it. I am in the process of writing a letter to Station Casino's corporate office. In spite of that, a visit to Red Rock is a must. It is located about 17 miles from the airport and if you are staying at another Station property, they will shuttle you. Red Rock is on Charleston and an easy drive by car into the exclusive Summerlin area. Enjoy!!!
Visited the Red Rock Hotel April 27th to 29th. First of all, I have to say that it is even nicer than the pictures, very elegant. Our room was spectacular, with a strip view from the 16th floor. Loved the bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. Super comfy robes, and the bath products were great. The TV was quite large, but we were surprised that it was not high definition since the hotel has clearly spent a lot of money on tecnology. Since the hotel had only been open a little more than a week the restaurants were all very busy on Thursday and Friday night. We did not feel like waiting and so we went across the street to find something to eat for dinner. We did have breakfast at the Grand Cafe and the Turf Grill, both breakfasts were quick, quite tasty and a good value. We did have to wait about 15 mins. to obtain a non-smoking room, but it was before the 3 pm check in time. Overall everyone working there was very polite and thanked us profusely. We did feel a bit underdressed for the hotel, as we spent our days at Red Rock Canyon and Death Valley we were not dressed up at all. The pool looked very nice, but we did not use it. Check out was very simple, you are able to do the quick checkout throught the TV and keyboard in your room, with an option to email yourself a copy of the bill. I would not reccomend this hotel if you want to go to the strip, as the drive was about 20 minutes. If you are interested in going to Red Rock Canyon however it is great. I would go back again when it is not so busy.

My friend took me to this resort way off the strip (like 20 miles) to celebrate my birthday. She booked us in at the spa for massages for my birthday present. Someone (I suspect a spa attendant) broke into my locker and stole all of my money, a diamond watch, and a credit card. The hotel is "investigating", but I was sent back to Arizona with the director of security saying, "We'll call you." Is this the way a wanna be 5 star resort treats its guests? What a great resort to hire theives!!! Won't stay here if it was the only hotel in Las Vegas.
