The night before our journey we spent the last evening with Julija who was heading back to Germany at the weekend, got taken to the cinema in the back off Jackson's pick up which was pretty cool, especially when cop cars pulled up along side us and did nothing as its legal in Arizona, saw The Expendables which was a pretty cool film, all famous …

Woke to a beautiful morning in Las Vegas, and headed to the lobby to complete yesterday's blog post. Now the Tuscany is very nice, and reasonably priced, but what high class hotel these days doesn't include free wifi in the room? Sorry, but I'm cheap enough to walk to the lobby, if it going to cost me $15/day in my …

A little off the Strip. Has it's benefits as it is quieter and cheaper, but it is a 15 minute walk to the main buzz. Large room with good amenities and reasonable service. Didn't use the pool (too cold this time of year) or casino. Had a great 'midnight breakfast' for USD3.99. Comfortable beds.

Die Zimmer sind groß und sauber, aber teilweise schon etwas abgewohnt. Bei kurzfristiger Buchung ist es sehr preiswert, auch wenn noch eine Resort-Fee dazu kommt. Die Gegenleistung für die Fee ist allerdings lächerlich. Internetzugang gibt es ohne Zusatzkosten nur im Lobbybereich und am Pool neben dem Hauptgebäude. Auf den Zimmern gibt es WLAN nur gegen Gebühr (12 $ pro Tag waren es etwa).
Die Lage abseits vom Strip sorgt für eine gewisse Ruhe, allerdings ist es für einen Spaziergang zum Strip zu abgelegen. Hier ist man immer auf eine Fahrmöglichkeit angewiesen.

Historical Traveler Reviews Tuscany Suites & Casino Las Vegas
I'll never stay anywhere else...
My husband and I loved the Tuscany. It was my first trip to Las Vegas and I was looking for a great deal. Not only was it a great price, but also the hotel looked great on the website. I thought I'd give it a try, since I had nothing else to go on. I got there and had a long wait, but it was the 4th of July weekend so I expected that. The lobby was clean and the staff was friendly. Our room was huge. My husband has been to Vegas before and had told me about the tiny rooms and the outrageous prices at other hotels. That is not the case at Tuscany. The casino had not been built yet, but I am looking forward to going back now that it is complete. I loved the fact that we stayed in such a nice, quiet, and safe hotel but were just a short walk away from the Vegas nightlife! I have recommended The Tuscany to everyone I know.
Tuscany is GREAT for the price
I live about 2 hours from Las Vegas, so I seem to find myself weekending there at least once a month, or even more often than that. I say this to stress two points, which may affect the way you read my review.
First I couldn't care less about the "carnival" atmosphere that exists in the major casino resorts in Las Vegas - particularly the strip resorts. After you have stayed in Vegas - oh - 50 times or so - it sort of looses it's appeal and the new wears right off. I could care less what "theme"-du-jour is promoted at the moment, whether egyptian or gondolas or rue de paris or whatever. I need a nice room, and good food - from there, I can figure out the rest pretty quickly. And honestly - the QUIET atmosphere of the Tuscany is extremely refreshing, especially when you wind down and decide it's time to sleep!
Second, since I am such a frequent visitor, price is an obvious consideration. There is no way I can justify paying $150 or $200 or $300 for an "average" room in a big name resort - just so they can afford to pay $100 - $200 advertising for every guest they attract (actual numbers - at least for weekend visitors), and maintain these huge monstrosities they have built on the desert. Again, I am looking for a nice room, and good food. The rest I can figure out pretty quickly.
In short - I am a "local" - at least by Las Vegas standards.
With this light on things - I have to say that the Tuscany is my #1 favorite place to stay in Las Vegas! I have stayed in most of the rest - including the Flamingo, Mirage, Caesars, Ballys, Bellagio, Paris, Monte Carlo, Golden Nugget, LVH, Mandalay, Venetian, Aladdin, Imperial Palace, all of the Stations (Boulder, Sunset, etc) - you name it - if it rates 3 stars or higher - I have likely been a guest. That said - and in that company - in my opinion the rooms at the Tuscany are EVERY BIT as nice as any of the above - at a FRACTION of the cost.
Also - is availability. The Tuscany almost always has rooms - even on the weekend - for under $100 per night. With less than 24 hours notice at that. Try to get a room at a big name resort Friday evening when you get into Vegas - you will spend $200 - $250 - $300 - $400 - $500 - or MORE for a single night. Why? Because they can charge that much and get away with it. Call the Tuscany - it's $89 - even on a weekend! How can you complain about that?
Meals from 11:00pm - 7:00am at the casino restaurant are ridiculously cheap - like old vegas. I'm talking .99 cents for LARGE breakfasts - prime rib for $6.00 - you can eat like a pig for half the price of ANY buffet on the strip. And the food is very good to excellent quality.
You won't be disappointed here!
If you want to play the big casinos - you are a 5 minute walk from Flamingo, Ballys, Paris, Bellagio, and Cesars palace (Flamingo and the Strip intersection). And honestly - this is the one place the Tuscany falls down. Their casino - while certainly nice by Laughlin standards - is not up to par with the major players on the strip. Not that it's bad - just small. I like to play the sports book - so I get to hoof over to Caesars to bet the ponys. Other than this small deal - it is great.
Last - and this is not of interest to me personally (I am married - and my wife almost always comes with me) - if you are looking for female action, then Tuscany is probably a poor choice. There is the requisite nite club - but the professional girls ply their trade up on the strip.
The drive to the underground garage at the Flamingo has much more to offer, as does the New York bar, or the Hard Rock. Again - this rates as irrelevant to me - but if you are going to Vegas looking for female "action" - then you might want to check out these places. Of course - I suppose you could easily pick up a girl at the Flamingo, and take her for the 2 minute drive back to your room....
The Tuscany is owned by the Best Western chain of hotels - and as such, you can expect their upper end of service. That is to say - a clean room, clean linen, and so forth. If you are looking for a Grand Vacation with chocolates on the bed, and being tucked in by your private butler - go to the Bellagion. This is available for an extra $300 or so per night. If you want the concierge to bring you a new lady friend - you will have MUCH better luck at a major strip resort - with a $100 tip. None of this will happen here.
But - if you want a NICE room, and GOOD food, at a FAIR price, with excellent security, and quiet enough to sleep between bouts at the Casino - then sign up for the Tuscany! Trust me - you will be glad you did.
I visit Las Vegas more than 5 times a year and have always stayed at 5 star hotels like Luxor, MGM and Bellagio. This time, I decided to stay at Tuscany because it offers a cyber-special and is a lot cheaper than the mega hotel/casinos on the strip (more than $100 cheaper per day).Here are my comments: Suite: It has pretty much everything you'd imagined in a suite. There was even a coffee maker in the room. The bed is very comfortable. I got an upgrade for my shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion in the bathroom. There is also a cushion that you can put across the bathtub. I still got some things to complain though. There were obvious stains on one of my pillows. There was a string of hair in the towel. And if you look really closely at the towels, they are not as clean as you'd think. When I checked this website before I booked my room at Tuscany, I've already heard about they don't give you enough towels. There were only two big wrap-around towels and about 4+ mid to small towels. Well... I guess if you use them conservatively, it should not be a big problem. After all, you can always ask for more.Casino: It's pretty new and clean. You don't really smell cigarette in the casino. There are only a few table games but they are not crowded. I'd give their casino a 4 out of 5.Staff: I just want to say the staffs are NOT professional. I booked a "Garden-View Suite" online (there were 3 pkgs online: normal, garden-view, and pool-view)and I ended up facing the parking lot and a wall. I didn't realize that till the next morning so I went to the front desk and complained. They told me to come back later so they'd switch me to another room since there weren't any garden-view available at that time. (Why didn't they tell me when I checked in?) I had my schedule planned out for the day to go shopping and visit the grand hotels so I didn't go back. But I thought I should deserve some money back so I told their manager (upon check out) to refund some money since they messed up. What the manager told .. Actually the definition of the garden-view suite is really vague. You will not face a big garden. You will just see some trees. So there is really not much difference between a normal room and a garden-view suite." Hmm... Why would I pay $15 dollars more per day and still face the parking lot? Even it's not a big garden, I'd still rather face some small bushes than face the parking lot. I spent about half an hour at the front desk and they seemed to reluctantly refunded a total of $20 dollars. Another incident happened when I went to the buffet. I was led to a table and went to get some food at the salad bar. When I went back to my table, I saw two strangers sitting there. I was later told to sit at another table by the kitchen.
Not horrible, but not great
Came out to Las Vegas to get married, and wanted somewhere cheap to stay. Tuscany had recently opened, and had good rates. The hotel itself was nice, large rooms, nice pool, convenient if you rent a car. But the service was below average. they had my name wrong in the computer but claimed they couldn't change it, so when my family tried to call our room, they had no record of us staying there. The front desk and housekeeping was not so great. I don't know how many times you can ask for more towels. We stayed when the casino was being built, so construction was sometimes noisy. Also - we stayed on throughout the week and were one of the few occupied rooms in our building, so we had to let the water run for 20-30 minutes to get hot water! Overall it wasn't too horribly bad for the price we paid, but we'll definitely stay somewhere else next time!
The place to stay
Stayed at the Tuscany in June of 2002. Great place, excellent service, beautiful landscape and close to the strip for easy access. This place is ideal if you rent a car. No headache walking a mile threw casino's to get to the rooms, park and walk in. highly recommended
The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
The Good: Nice enough facility. The rooms are advertised as suites even though they were really just big rooms. Nothing wrong with that but they were not our idea of suites. Of course, we didn't see all the rooms so maybe there are some actual suites available. The hotel consists of several separate buildings, and the grounds are pleasantly landscaped. We enjoyed the lounge and the cafe in the casino. Two employees deserve special mention: Rafael (maintenance) was most helpful when we had problems with the in-room safe. He was very prompt and had a great personality! Demetrios (waiter in the cafe) gave us excellent service & attention. Very sweet young man! Also, we were impressed by the security staff. They were very obvious and roamed the entire property 24 hours a day so we felt safe enough. The pool & hot tub area was nice, and we were happy to find it open in January since the weather was warm enough to use it!The Bad: The service we received from the front desk personnel was lousy. Our first night there, they wouldn't even answer the phone because, and I quote, "we're too busy." We had to leave the room and walk up front to get service, and then it was slow and they were not very friendly or helpful. Housekeeping service was okay as far as cleaning goes, but lacked a little bit in leaving toiletries, etc. Each day we had to ask for more towels because they never left enough & once we had to ask for toilet tissue. Unless you speak Spanish, communication with the housekeeping staff can be challenging. The Ugly: While only 1-1/2 blocks, the walk to the strip was a pretty good little hike. (If you've been to Vegas you know that a block there is not the same as a block in most towns). I wouldn't recommend taking that walk alone late at night because chances were good of encountering some less than savory types in the area between Bally's and the Tuscany.
Enjoyed the stay Tuscany!
Thoroughly enjoy traveling to Las Vegas especially when the trip can be done very economically! Although my husband and I try to stay very close to the strip we try to obtain nice accommodations for the best price possible - that's why last September, 2002 (9/25 - 10/1) we stayed at Tuscany Hotel. The location was quite ideal because we had a rental car and could be quite mobile. Tuscany is very nicly landscaped and for the price that we paid for the room, we were quite happy with our stay. Had breakfast the first morning at the hotel - were disappointed with the food so we dined elswhere for the balance of our stay. Unfortunately, since the casino has opened, I have found that the same trip this year would cost us over $250 more; so sad to say, we will be staying elsewhere.
Hated the Tuscany
Stayed at the Tuscany May 18-25 of 2002. Service was terrible. The "suite" is a huge room with 2 beds in it. No wall in between. There were 3 of us, and the staff never had enough towels in the bathroom. Every time we asked a staff member for something (like towels), they told us in mangled language that it wasn't their job. They took forever to clean our room. They didn't have basic cable on the tv, so all you got was local station. Their "free buffet" was skimpy. They didn't refill it regularly. They falsely advertised that they had a casino. They didn't have a casino yet, and didn't tell us that it wouldn't be ready until the fall. Otherwise we wouldn't have stayed there. Their restaurant food was good, but not for the price. Don't make it your place to have all of your meals. The concierge was the worst I've ever seen. The front desk staff is rude. The manager is stingy. When I complained to him, he didn't even offer to comp our breakfast. We had late check-out, and they still locked my father out of the room at noon. Take a pass on them. Stay somewhere better.
Needs better management - will not go here again
For a brand new hotel, I was expecting a bit more. Our shower door did not close and the lock on the door was broken off. The rooms were rather large for hotel rooms, but that did not make up for any of the problems we encountered.
I tried to use the dataports for hooking up my computer - and it took several tries working with the front desk - even then, it was a useless connection. I eventually tried to get something faxed to me, only to be told that the fax machine was "broken" and would take a few hours to fix. When I complained and the front desk went to check to fax machine, lo and behold, my fax was waiting for me (without having been fixed).
The front desk also has very little knowledge about the area - we asked for recommendations for the best (not the cheapest) places for breakfast/brunch and were told that a Denny's wasn't too far away- when we tried to get more information, she had none to offer - she did not know the area very well.
Also be warned that although the hotel is only "two blocks" from the strip - these blocks are long. - its about a 10 minute walk to the middle of the strip - we generally would take a cab back after we had gone to one or the other ends - plus, if you're dressed nicely, walking 10-20 minutes in heels is not ideal.
In short, I probably would not stay here again unless forced to do so.
Xtra large rooms
Very clean and large rooms , nicely landscaped and so much easier to access then the strip hotels
If you have/rent a car this is much more convenient than the big ones, but only 2 blocks from the strip , I will stay here again.
