... Flamingo Casino, is supposed to open at the end of this year or early next year.
Hopefully, next time we are there, there won’t be as much building, renovating, and maintenance going on, and the new Linq project will be open. But, as I said before, we had a good time anyway.
Oh, and by the way, John found his wallet the day after we got home. So, all the stress before we left, and canceling credit cards was for ...
A great day volunteering. Lois cleaned out a cat habitat and hung with the kitties and Denise walked dogs. Perfect! Yummy lunch with the volunteers. Then a moving and tearful tribute to Kathy at the Angels Overlook . Her deep love for kitties and all animals made it the purrfect spot. Back to Vegas for a fab dinner and walk down the Strip. What a contrast to where we have been! Canyons of Decadence. We're headin home from the best vacation ...
... some roulette and drink $1 margaritas. At some stage half the party had gone home as Pete and Jude had to get up and catch a 5.30am tour to the Grand Canyon so this just left the New Orleans 5 together again, my how times have not changed.
After the 11pm show we jumped in a cab and went home and dropped into bed, a quiet night.
Until next time, have fun because you know I will be.
... ok, but I preferred the offering from the day before. Eventually I got my results by going to the main building and using the computer there. It was really fast and I wish I had done that in the first place. We headed to the outlet mall for the day to do some serious spending and that we did. We needed to get Harrison some new swimming shorts and he found some he liked in Billabong, which had a very friendly sales person, who struck a really good balance ...

Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort, Spa & Golf
Next trip, I'll take The Strip
We travel to Las Vegas at least once a year and like to try different hotels each time. In June of 2003 we chose the JW Marriott. The room was large and luxurious, although a bit worn. The food was excellent and the hotel is beautiful. The service was, with very few exceptions, bad. I am not what one would call fussy, but, for the prices charged at the JW Marriott, I expect a little initiative. If you read these reviews for advice, pick out a nice hotel on or near the strip. They seem to be more experienced and helpful and you might even save a couple of dollars. I won't be staying at the JW Marriott again. I'm sure they don't care!
Close, yet far enough from the Strip
This upscale JW is the best off-the-strip property in Las Vegas. It is close to the best golf courses of Summerlin, and only a 15-20 minute drive to anywhere on the strip. Luxury without the crowds.
Spacious and plush rooms with fantastic cooling system and overhead fan. Incredible baths with large jet tubs and 'rain-forest' showers (with large pan showerheads).
Lush oasis gardens, pool with waterfalls, and a couple of secluded hot tubs. Excellent spa and gym facility. Great dining at Ceres Restaurant.
Casino and mall shopping are separate down corridors. Use caution with Rampart Buffet; Prices are good, but quality is low.
We stayed at this fabulous resort for 1 night last week on our way to California. It totally exceeded our expectations! The atmosphere was very friendly and laid back, a great place to take a family. For such a luxurious resort, it's certainly very relaxed. The pool was warm and beautiful and not too crowded. The view of the city at night was fantastic. We ate at the Irish Pub, where they had great live music and good food. We stayed in a "standard" room which boasted marble bathroom with deep jetted tub and raindrop shower. The amenities are Garden Botanika, and each room had cozy robes. We had a huge walk-in closet.
Great Out-of-Vegas Experience
I stayed at the Mirage for 3 nights and then came here for 3 nights for business. Like night and day. If you want to be on the strip, the Marriott might not be the place for you. But if you want to go to a place to get away, its a great place to relax. They do have a casino. Very nice pool where you can always find a seat and food at pool was pretty good. Nice spa also. Our room was absolutely ridiculous. I got a free upgrade and ended up in a room with 3 bathrooms. Had to be around 1,000 SF. The one drawback is you really need a car if you want to go downtown (a $25 cab ride). They should really have a nightly shuttle but they dont. Otherwise, Id recommend.
We just spent our second weekend at the JW Marriott Las Vegas and it was better than the first last October. What a refreshing get-a-way from the elbow jabbing, over-pricing rat race of the strip! Gardens, waterfalls, walkways, cabana's and peace. The rooms are TO DIE for! Great walk-in closets, comfortable beds, different pillow choices, but best of all THE BATHROOMS. Oh my Gosh, the shower has the recessed feature above your head that gushes out like you were standing under a stream. I even accidentally left a new pair of pants in my room, when I called three days later, they had been turned in and are being mailed back to me as I write this...free of charge! The casino's are open and as airy as a casino can be. Restaurant choices are great (we prefer the Irish Pub)...great Guiness pour! For the diehard gamblers, take a cab, it's worth it!
Before going any further, the reason we stayed at this JW Marriott was due to the previous comments listed here in the Trip Advisor - My wife and I were part of an Irish St. Patrick's Day reunion to be held at J.C Wooligans which is a popular Irish pub located inside the hotel; our group totaled near 20; only THREE of us elected to stay at the JW Marriott. What a wonderful experience for us! while the others trudged back and fortb between the Best Western, the three of us lounged in ambience, gourmet dining, a wonderful friendly staff (except for the valet guys! lost my car and keys twice - use the self-park, its close and easy!) The rooms were abundant, matter of fact, the 500+ square foot room, a standard room is equpped with a 32" Big Screen TV. The casino was a loser, not much winning going on but we came away with walking the grounds, checking the Spa, etc. The amenities of the Rainfall shower and the Whirlpool tub (fits 2 easily!) and the French door porch/balcony overlooking the ground was simply wonderful. PS - golf...I played next door at the Badlands, a Johnny Miller/ChiChi Rodriguez course; the rates were much better than the one's offered by the hotel; there are a number of courses nearby but the Bandlands has 27 holes of hazards, desert wound thru a series of million dollar homes...A nice time was had by all! thanks J.W.
Stayed at the J.W. Marriott in February after being stranded in Las Vegas due to a huge snowstorm back east. We stayed for five nights at Treasure Island and had to move because TI was fully booked. After staying at the J. W. Marriott we wish we had stayed here the entire trip. We really liked Las Vegas but it was relief to be away from the strip. We thought we would stay at Bellagio on our next trip but I think we will stay here instead. The drive to the strip is easy and quick (we are used to heavier traffic back home). Our room was gorgeous and the public areas and grounds are gorgeous too. One day we found a magazine conducting a photo shoot at the hotel. Our room had a patio that looked out onto a pond with waterfalls. The bathroom was huge and the rainfall shower was fantastic. The bed was very comfortable. The spa looked nice but we regret that we did not have enough time to get any treatments. The casino was adequate and had looser payouts than the casinos on the strip. There is another great casino next door. Another nice feature - you do not have to walk through the casino everytime you want to go somewhere within the hotel. Yes, the staying on the strip is convienent and fun but for my money I prefer the peace and luxury of this hotel with all the nightlife I can stand a short drive away.
I was very impressed with this hotel/resort. We had a one room suite with a bathroom larger than most hotel rooms. The grounds and pool area were beautiful. Great view of two golf courses including the TPC Canyons.
The staff was excellent.
We ate at OXO's our last night there. The food was great. My wife had what she said was the best prepared salmon she had ever eaten. My filet was one of the best also. There was a big band providing entertainment that evening.
I could go on, but you need to see this place for yourself. A wonderful alternative to the Strip.
I had just recently attended the JW Marriott in Las Vegas! And.. like the title when you are staying at this fabulous hotel.. you feel like you are right at home! The pool is absolutely gorgeous! It is actaully ranked #5 "best pool" in las vegas! The food is also wonderful, they have a wide variety of what each person in your family might enjoy! They have a japanese restaurant with a Teppan grill(excellent), a buffet(good for picky children), a real irish pub with great prices, an italian restaurant(with outdoor seatings, while you are eating you can relax by the peaceful waterfalls). In the main hotel there is, a casual dining room for all-american meal.(theres sure to be something for everyone!) And the last restaurant is a grill/bar near the pool so, it's perfect while your swimming or just trying to get a tan!!! It's very convenient everywhere you go!!! We defineatly suggest that you attend! So basically you really never have to leave, the hotel!!! There's also a convenient store, inside of the hotel & and a designer store called K. Roland, with all of the latest and hippest styles!!! Also, with out-of-this world prices! On top of everything else, the rooms are ****(four-stars)!!! They are very luxurious and spacious for the whole family! With a true home feeling! There is also a excercise room, steam, jacuzzi, and you may reseve your own lap-pool. Also, is also the grand pool, that has an AMAZING atmosphore with real-pouring waterfalls! (its also a very safe place, for the kids (especially for the younger ones because they have a one-foot area) and there also many lifeguards around at all times! So, this is a wonderful place for the parents to just come and relax to!! Many people think that when you come to Las Vegas, that you should stay on the strip but, really you should come here, to the JW Marriott, because it's not as hectic and its so much more peaceful but, still at the same time you are close to the strip and shopping malls. For example, right across from the hotel is
This Hotel is really beautiful! The rooms are fantastic and the bathrooms are simply amazing! Gorgeous grounds, great restaurants, beautiful pools! 1st Class! Would recommend to everyone.
