Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Las Vegas Hughes Center
Just returned from a trip to Las Vegas/Grand Canyon (week of April 25th). Stayed at the Residence Inn-Hughes 2 Bedroom suite for three nights. We usually stay at a Residence Inn elsewhere when we go on vacation. This Residence Inn (Hughes) is above average than the other Residence Inns. The suites were very clean including the sheets and bathtub and quiet. Unlike other Residence Inns, we had no problems with waiting for the elevators, which came quick and often. During the 3 days, we did not hear or see any people in the hallways. We had wondered at times whether there were any other people staying in the hotel until we saw how many people there were at breakfast time. Our room was on the 10th floor and we had a good view of the mountains and a part of the Strip. Unlike the mega hotels on the Strip, parking was easy and plentiful. Hotel staff/reception were very friendly and made you feel welcomed. Checking inn took less than 10 minutes for us. The full kitchen including full size stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker came in handy, although we did not use them much since the hotel served a full breakfast hot buffet and an evening light meal/happy hour. Breakfast had a wide variety of hot foods such as scrambled eggs, sausage patties, pancakes, make you own waffles, biscuits, fresh fruits, cereals, oatmeal, juices, milk, coffee, teas, hot cocoa, etc. .. Getting to the Strip was easy as long as you know where the self parking lots are at the "mega" hotels. Driving to the strip was quick and very easy from the hotel although one cannot predict traffic. We couldn't use the pool during our stay because the weather was too cold and a bit rainy, but it looked good. It felt like home when we came back to our rooms in the evening after a day of sight seeing. As long as you have a car, there should be no problem going out to eat, shopping or sightseeing. It's a very close drive to McCarran Airport (maybe 10 minutes away), but we didn't hear any airplanes at all during our stay. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Las Vegas. The Residence Inn made my family's vacation very comfortable.
Great Place to stay!
Great place to stay, small pool that was exactly 65 degrees so it was too cold to swim but the spa was nice and large. Free high speed internet access, large fridge with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, 10 or 12 cup coffee maker not the small ones you see in most places, well worth the price. Could be difficult to locate at night, if you are not taking a taxi you may want to mapqwest the location. One nice thing is that you can get from your room to your car or truck in min or two, you don't need to pack a lunch to hike to your car 1/2 mile away like you might at one of the huge locations on the strip. Another cool perk for the guests is the large outdoor BBQ grill. You could pick up some nice steaks etc. at a supermarket and have a good meal at a fair price.
I spent one night at this Residence Inn and was disgusted by the state of the room - and especially the bedding. The sheets were badly stained, paper-thin and had cigarette burn holes! I would not recommend this to anyone at all finicky about cleanliness.
All housekeepers have been reminded to inspect sheets before using them.
Given that our hotel has consistantly maintianed guest satisfaction scores in the top 20% for Residence Inn by Marriott, we can safely say this is not a common issue and has been addressed.
Pretty good hotel but more suited for business travelers.
We stayed here one night during a very busy NASCAR weekend and booked last minute when everything was full or super expensive. We booked her one night since the Tuscany could not accomodate us for an extra night at a good rate. Weekend rate of 149.00 was excellent.
It was a one bedroom suite, with full kitchen. Double bed in bedroom, 2 TV's with cable, bathroom is in the bedroom. Couch pulls out as a SMALL sleeper so it only holds 1 person. Not ideal if you have 4 people like we did, so somebody sleeps on the floor. They really should notify people that the sleeper does not fit 2 people.
The price includes a nice breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet closes early M-F they start putting food away at 9am. Makes sense since this is a mostly business hotel. Weekends they keep the buffet open a little longer. If it is closed when you get there just go across the street to the Tuscany their breakfat buffet is open until 11am and it is only 5.99.
Location is about 15 minute walk from the strip, off of Flamingo road. Hotel is perfect for business travelers and right next to Hughes Center.
More than adequate
The one bedroom suite was clean and had all the amenities. The free breakfast was excellent: eggs, sausage, hot and cold cereal, fruit, etc.
It seemed a bit pricey, however.
We arrived in Vegas on a Saturday so wanted a 'cheaper' hotel to crash in for the first night before we moved on to one of the more famous ones on the strip. This hotel was a gem, so much so we stayed here for the whole time we were in Vegas. Big rooms (more like an apartment), pristine linen, fridge, huge TV, great breakfast. The hotel is close enough to the strip to walk down there, far enough away to be quiet. Nearby is a great Pub Brewery, McCormick's, Starbucks, Hard Rock Cafe and many more places to eat and drink. There's no casino so only hotel guests are in the lobby, unlike the Bellagio for instance which is constantly full of punters and tourists and drowns any sense of luxury anyway. At $149 a night all week this hotel is a bargain. Do yourself a favour and stay here instead.
Vegas is all it's hyped up to be, but I agree with the last reviewer that things in this town can get pretty expensive. Luckily, this Residence Inn was not only affordable but well worth the comfort. Rooms are spacious and the friendly staff made our stay enjoyable. The hotel is ideally located right in the heart of Vegas and I recommend it to anyone looking to stay in a nice place for a great price.
Highlight of Visit to Vegas
What a great hotel! it looks newly built tower type property, we had a 2 bedroom room with kitchen and lounge area, situated off the strip, actually 2 blocks back parallel to it. The first night we walked to the strip in the July heat (not recommended) however having got our bearings we realised that all the strip hotels offer free parking so we did this. The Hotel is very friendly and for the price $149 each night inc saturday (have you seen how most hotels bump up the price on a saturday!) plus mon - thurs a free buffet with beer and wine, basic food but hey its free! Hot breakfast included, free wireless internet access in the rooms and the lobby areas, super fast access to 10 times faster than my NTL connection at home. My daughter was chatting with her mates on MSN messenger we linked up with my parents and even hooked up using the webcam, all for free, better than a postacrd!! The pool was great to, this hotel was the highlight of my vegas trip, apart from the colourful lights and awesome sights of so many hotels, i did not like Vegas, to see the shows would cost an absolute fortune, the attractions in most of the hotels had to be paid for, so there wasn't much entertainment for free, I wont be back.
Affordable & Luxurious!!
Very clean rooms and very comfortable. The hotel was great from the moment we arrived which was at noon and had time to relax at the pool before we checked-in.
We were on vacation and the free high speed internet was a real plus since a lot of hotels charge $10 a day.
One thing that made me want to return to this hotel is the spacious suites they have to offer. Our room was a double-queen-two bedroom suite that even a full kitchen--with pots and pans included.
Service was excellent! And if you're looking for the fun and excitement of the Las Vegas strip with an affordable rate, then this is the hotel for you! Highly recommended.

... again and arrived in the afternoon in Vegas! Out of nowhere driving through the desolation of the desert, spotted only with Joshua trees, there were the massive high rises appearing like a vision in the distance and we knew we had arrived. We returned our car then checked in at the MGM Grand - like everything in Vegas, the scale of the hotel & casino has to be seen to be believed! We spent the afternoon exploring the hotels along the strip, bought ...

We arrived at the Hoover Dam and were first shown a short 10 minute film about the making of the dam it was very interesting. Then we went on a tour. We went in a lift which held about 40 shoulder to shoulder people. It took 70 seconds to go 500 feet down to the tunnel to the turbine inlet pipes. The main pipes are 55 feet in diameter. We then walked through tunnels carved out of bedrock to one of the turbine halls where there are 7 turbines each at ...
... the Strip to be flash, garish and the epitome of American excess, and it was all of the above but what I didn't expect was how impressed I would be by the architecture. Well, the superb copies of Old World architecture. Most notably the Venetian with an extremely passable Realto Bridge and St Mark's basilica tower, a half scale Eiffel Tower at Paris and the enormous glass pyramid of the Luxor. We caught feeding time at the Flamingo's little bird garden, ...
Went up to the strip again yesterday evening but there were no shows that we fancied, we considered the Manhattan express roller coaster that runs around New York New York hotel but decided against it as didn't want to risk Michaels back being bad ! We ended up going in the MGM grand for dinner (Kirsten & Ben gave us some $$ before we left to have a meal on them), we ate in their rainforest cafe which had ...

We had a lovely lunch at the Aria hotel. This is one of the newer hotels and the interior decor is beautiful- including a lot of hanging paper cranes, lots of colour and beautiful iridescent tiles.
We did some shopping at the Outlet centre but I only had time for about 1/4 so hopefully will get back soon.
During the day Manal sweet talked the front desk to change us to a non smoking room as ...
