Grandview at Las Vegas
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Got a great upgrade on our rental car - it pays to tell everyone about this kind of special occasion - a 50th birthday - hence the upgrade to a 'stang ...and it's a convertible to boot as the photo shows!
Today me and my husband decided to just make this our relaxation day. We had to go grocery shopping for food and drinks so we did that. We went to the Walmart marketplace, which was great and cheap. Then we went to rent a couple movies from red box for the day. Lastly, to make a stop at the package store to pick up some alcohol for the week, it is …
Today we arrived into Las Vegas at around 700pm. The flight was an adventure. When we where flying over the Rocky mountains there was quite a big of turbulence. It almost felt like the plane was going down at one point. Then the rest of the flight was bumpy :(
Our hotel room was amazing. Full kitchen, living room, his and her sinks, two person …
... cousin from Canada) out the front and on the bus to get the hire car where we encounter another awesome guy at Hertz giving us a great deal on a Mercedes (yep they definitely know we are important and now I just have to win at the casino so I can buy one!). Now the fun begins.... What happens on the highway stays on the highway! After getting over sitting in the passenger seat on the wrong side of the car and not having control of the driving and then ...

Jamie and I jumped on the shuttle bus over to Whiskey Pete's as this has the Bonnie and Clyde car in the casino. There were a couple of other things on the wall like Clyde's shirt he was wearing when he was shot, the autopsy report and newspaper reports. Then it was back on the shuttle and back to the shops.
Interesting ride on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grandview at Las Vegas
My husband and I and another couple stayed at the grand view booking before it was built and I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was. I was a little nervous about the booking but all my fears were releived as soon as I opened the door to our ajoining suites. It was as nice as being at home with all the comforts. We cooked breakfast a couple mornings and I came home with all clean laundry. We had plenty of privacy and plenty of fun. The front desk was very attentive to any needs and I was acknowledged as soon as I entered the lobby. It was nice to do some swimming in the pool with the music piped in, while sipping on a beverage and having a snack. We would have loved to purchase if not for being out of work-I think the next time around will have different results. I can't wait to return-it will be like going home-I liked it that much. P.S. So did our best freinds. Hopefully we will see you on our next trip. Thank you Grand View.
We stayed here for 7 nights and generally were impressed with the standard of accommodation and furnishings. Everything is brand new and if you are content to stay 4 miles out from the strip you probably would be happy here.
Spent two nights 3/11/05-3/13/05 at the new Grandview at Las Vegas. Booked it through Hotwire (was described as 3 1/2 star Suite south of the strip) for $115 a night. This was actually a good deal, since it was Nascar weekend and what hotels weren't sold out, were ridiculously expensive.
Spent a lovely week at the Grandview in the brand new Primrose building from February 5th - 12th, 2005. It far exceeded our expectations with beautiful interior decorating and a well thought out room plan. The view was spectacular. The construction was ongoing but did not affect our stay in the least even though we were next to it. The 2 pools, 2 spa's and waterfalls made it easy to have more privacy than usual in a resort. This place is 10 minutes from the strip and very easy to get to with a car as Vegas is very simple to get around and parking at any large hotel is free.
I called the place to book 2 rooms at 7:30 p.m. pacific time and was unable to because the office had closed. The person who answered the phone was very helpful about the amenities of the facility but was not aware of the pricing and suggested that i go online to book the room. So i did. during the booking process i took screen shots of everything i entered-something i do just in case i had to dispute any charges to my card-when i was complete with the transaction i noticed that the wrong dates were issued. i first went back to my screen shots to verify that i had entered the correct date-and i did-i immediately called the number listed below and the polite woman told me that she could not assist me with this issue. However, she did tell me that the dates that i entered were avalable-she gave me a number to call to resolve this issue but i would have to wait until they opened at 7:00 a.m.-i called first thing the next morning and the woman who answered was very polite but did not have any authority to resolve this issue and would have to wait until her manager could contact the property manager to see if this was possible- it is 11:00 a.m. and i still have not heard one way or another-for such a simple issue
Stayed at the Grandview December 25-28. Didn't get in until 1a.m. on the 26th, got a great internet rate $89 for three nights. Asked for a late check out on Tuesday, they were a little hesitant, but I think that 10a.m. is unreasonably early for a check out. They granted a late 12 noon check out - the resort was not at full capacity. There is construction going on outside on two sides of the Primrose building - we were not awakened but we were on the opposite side of the building from the construction sites. Room was spacious and just as it appeared in the website photos - very brand new and clean and even smells of fresh paint in the halls. There is a larger screen TV in the living are and a TV in the bedroom as well. You can check out DVDs for free from their library - (we actually did for 1 night!). They were doing something with the pipes that left us with no hot water for a couple of hours- but they corrected the problem as soon as we called. Some people at the front desk seem very frazzled and not exceedingly nice - not rude, but not friendly- just a little weird for me to experience as I am a frequent Las Vegas visitor. You will need to rent a car if you stay here - you are too far away from the strip to walk, and the shuttle just doesn't leave you very much flexibility. Our car was $16 a day and perfect. If you are looking for a quiet, very very clean comfortable place to stay that has a great jacuzzi in the room without breaking the bank - I recommend the Grandview.
My wife and I stayed at the resort from Thursday November 4th through Sunday the 7th. Although we checked in during evening hours, there was no line to speak of and the process was smooth and painless. The staff we encountered were all very pleasant and didn't have to do anything special to make this a great stay.
My husband and I stayed at the Grandview at Las Vegas for two nights during the week of October 4, 2004. The property is located about 5-6 miles South of the action on the Strip/airport. Check-in was quick and easy. The property actually consists of two condominium buildings, containing one and two bedroom apartments. We stayed in a very spacious one bedroom. The apartment has a full kitchen with all utensils, china, full-sized refigerator w/ice maker, cookware, dishwaher, coffee maker, toaster, and waher/dryer. (Be sure not to forget to complete/turn in the inventory sheet when you arrive- our apt was missing one cookware item). There is a dining area with four chairs; living room w/ sleeper sofa and very large screen tv. There is also a tv in the bedroom w/ king or queen sized bed and jacuzzi. Iron & ironing board are provided w/ plenty of closet space. The bath is very spacious, with glass-enclosed shower and his/her vanity. The decor is very modern and southwestern color scheme. Don't expect housekeeping services unless you are willing to spend $15/per day. Plenty of towels and toiletries are provided, plus you are stocked with cleaning products, a mop and a broom, if needed. The pool area is large w/ waterfall and plenty of lounging space. If you do not have a rental car, call early for shuttle service. Good assortment of fast food places nearby (Subway/In-Out Burger/McDonald's/Chipoltle Mexican Grill) & convenience stores. Property has a nice computer room for free internet services, especially for those who use the internet to check-in at the airport. Not sure how long this property is going to be available for hotel-type rentals; we noticed that a lot of the hotels on the strip and downtown were offering free dinner and shows for those who were willing to take a few hours to tour the property (and potentially purchase a unit for time-sharing). Overall, we enjoyed the stay -very comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. Not so sure we would have been 100% happy if we did not have a rental car to come and go to the Strip as we pleased due to the distance and the time it appeared to take others to catch the hotel shuttle, plus the shuttle does not run 24 hours. I highly recommend the property. We reserved through Travelocity.com, at a rate of $132/night. Good price if you can't get one of those $99 deals at the Strip hotels like Paris, Monte Carlo, NYNY, and Aladdin.
