... de la Llibertat, tot. Fa riure de veure.
El primer dia aquí, varem relaxar-nos en una de les cinc piscines de l’hotel Venetian. Com podeu suposar, amb aquest nom, l’hotel és com estar a Venècia, és molt de luxe i té 36 pisos. Té gondoles, botigues i carrers, fins i tot una plaça amb músics. M’agrada molt. Al vespre, varem anar a sopar a un restaurant boníssim.
... good in a theater that large before. As usual for Cirque du Soleil, the staging was impressive with all the set changes integrated seamlessly into the show. I'm not a huge Michael Jackson fan but I enjoyed the performance. The music had all been re-mixed so even the old songs sounded new. There were some costumes with LEDs in the show that looked like they were right off ...
By the time we got back from dinner the party bus was waiting and ready to roll. Our tour has two buses following the same itinerary, the only difference being is that the people on the other bus are all 21 and under. Word has got out that our group like to have a good time, where as they've been in bed by 10pm. They asked their group leader to invite our group to join them on the party bus, how good is that?
The party bus only ...
... three large pizzas for us all before going out. We met everybody at Ali's room, and we started drinking. We were playing games and taking photos it was all a great laugh, and a night I will never forget. However, the best part of the night has yet to come. By the time everybody had spilt some sort of alcoholic beverage down their 'new outfit', Ali had organised a surprise limo party bus for us all which was waiting outside the lobby. We were allowed alcohol on the ...
... we had. We decided to walk back fromnear Charleston street and the strip, given we hadn't recently had much of a chance to walk anyway. It was hot, we were sweating profusely and needed some sustenance of lunch and a big drink. We pushed on and stopped at "The Largest Souvenir Shop" and it was with all. The hype and bling and ****. there was a bloke dressing his chauwowa in a pink bling doggy top, the pooch came over for some love, it was ver spoiled by this man. After a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rumor Hotel Las Vegas
My husband and I stayed at this hotel on April 17-21, 2004.
After a long journey I called the hotel for its shuttle service. An hour went by so i called again. They said they would send someone out again. Another 30 minutes went by, another couple called, the hotel said they would send a shuttle. Once again nothing so i called again.
We arrived at 330 in the afternoon after a 6 hour drive and were told Check in is at 4pm, and not before, so we had to wait 30 minutes needing a bathroom and a change of clothes. There were two tubs of old icecream in our refrigerator and the tub and shower had hair and dead cockroaches in them. The jacuzzi was old and tired, and the jets hardly worked at all. The shower floor was severely cracked and was covered with a piece of rubber.Our credit card was debited $400USD as security on the room, and then on check out we paid again for the stay. Our deposit was not returned. After calling the "hotel guest manager" whos name was Melanie or Melissa, who was extremely rude,I was told that this is standard practice in the US and "foreigners" should be aware of US practices. This $400 will take 10 days to come back into my account.
OK all around
We stayed at the St. Tropez in April 2002 while traveling with our two kids to our nephew's wedding. We wanted a place where we could relax away from the gaming scene, which was off the strip and had a few comfortable amenities. The St. Tropez was just fine. Even the sleeper sofa was fairly comfortable. The only drawback was the pool, which was unheated and a bit chilly in April. But there was plenty of parking, clean landscaped grounds and a comfortable enough room. It isn't The Ritz, but it's fine for families and business travelers.
Avoiding the roaches
This place obviously needed some updating and remodelling. The A/C was passable, but all wall units running 24 hrs a day. There were roaches in the bathroom, albeit already dead from earlier spraying.
On the positive - the shuttle was very convenient - never needed a cab when going back/forth to the airport nor out at night (though on your own for the return). The breakfast was free and about the quality of a Marriott breakfast buffet.
Overall - it was average and typical for an off the strip hotel. If you want better quality at similar prices - see The Orleans. But its on the other side of the strip and further from the airport.
Where else can you get a suite with a hot tub and VCR for under $100 per night? I don't like staying in the bigger hotels because it takes so long getting in and out. It's also usually uneventful to spend time in one's room. At St Tropez, I check in, no bell hops. My suite or one bedroom has a refrigerator, a VCR, and a hot tub. I step outside to the pool and another hot tub under some tall palm trees. My private spa includes setting up some candles and inscense, with some aromatherapy bath products and soaking with some classical music playing from the hotel's clock radio. There are also menus for food delivery, though it would be nice if the hotel could add a microwave. There is a hotel shuttle to the MGM and taxis can be hailed across the street from the Hard Rock. I used to like the country club atmosphere of the demised Desert Inn. I guess that's why I like St. Tropez so much. I actually leave Vegas feeling relaxed!
We wanted somewhere quiet in Vegas to crash out for 2 days after 2 weeks travelling. Found a really cheap rate on the internet for the St Tropez which made us wonder what we would get for the money! It turned out to be really lovely, the room was great (huge) breakfast (loads of it) and really friendly staff, with fresh baked cookies on the counter every day. The pool area was wonderfull, just what we wanted with plenty of space to spread out. They have a lot of American aircrew staying there. Just across the road (which is pretty busy all the time) is the Hard Rock Hotel, great for browsing around. The hotel was due for re-modelling and boards were up in the reception area showing how it would look with the new wallcoverings etc. Should look better the ever, can't wait to go back again and again!
Awesome room for the money
3/2002 My husband wasn't happy I booked us to stay at a non-gaming hotel. But, after seeing the room, jacuzzi tub, king size bed and wet bar he changed his tune real quick. He liked getting away from the hustle and bustle of the strip. The Hard Rock is just across the street and there is a resturant and other places within walking distance. The continental breakfast was a great way to start the morning. It was nice to have a separate room so we could invite friends over for a drink or just conversation. At the time the air conditioning wasn't working the greatest, we were offered another room, but chose not to because we were settled in, so they took $10. a night off our bill. We plan to return to Vegas next March and stay here again.
Cock Roach Hotel!!
This is a hotel to AVOID! At first arival we found the carpet dirty, Air conditioner leaking water down the wall onto an electrical socket and a dead cockroach in the bathroom. After returning from gambling we found 3 more roaches, in bath tub by bed and in the bathroom. We raised hell and they got a new room for us the next day AFTER 2 pm! (The town was full up by Saturday so we were stuck) They promised us a 10 dollar discount for our trouble which they forgot about when we checked out.
AVOID THIS ROACH INFESTED HOLE AT ALL COSTS!
