Budget hotel on the strip
Obviously, high rollers will use the other hotels with more stars. It looks like the hotel is targeting the younger crowds.
Firstly, I got a complimentary upgrade to the Select Towers. I have to pay $7.5 resort fees per night, included is free entry to the tall Tower, free use of pool, and some two for one's. I always use discount services on Vegas. I never heard of resort fees in Vegas. But I paid $20 resort fee per night for Palm Springs this summer, but that's a real large resort with it's own golf course.
The room is pretty small, just enough for two queen beds and walking space. The crouch, the coffee table, the desks, and in particular the wardrobe, are all on the small side. At first sight, the bold color scheme made the room like a boutique hotel. On 2nd sight, the furnitures are all made of plywood.
The bathroom is good sized. The bathtub and the wall tiles around it are made from the same mold, plastic or probably fiber glass. Sure it's easy to clean. The plywood furniture are mounted on the walls. There are no obstacles on the floor, which is made of good stones (or fake stones).
The toilet is airline style. When you first flush, it will scare the kids.
The toilet looks clean, but sometimes I sense a faint foul smell. I can't tell where it's from, and I have no stomach to do a thorough search. Certainly it's not me. If you are in for a little bit you may not notice it anymore. You also can't smell it outside. It may be minor malfunction in the air vent. I didn't bother to ask for a room change. Nobody else seemed to notice it. But usually bathroom smell fresh, you know.
The pool isn't small, but the deepest part is 4' I think. On weekends there will be two volleyball sections on the pedal shaped pool. Of course there will be young adults socializing. The music is too loud for "mature" adults. Staff wears bikini, whereas in country clubs, waiters usually wear spot outfits. There are also a few tables at the pool where the dealers wear bikini. The ones I have seen wearing bikini aren't too bad, or else they won't get the job if they turn people off. But since people there are younger, I came across a few good looking bodies in bikini. Actually a girl sun bathing next to me got herself a stalker, who follow her around, sat next to her and stare at her. But she is more like a woman so she handled it well, and security aren't necessary before the stalker backed off.
The tall signature towel is worth going up (free for guest or included in resort fee). The restaurants and bars can maintain a high fee because of the nice 360 view. If you have vertigo, you will have problem enjoying the view because of the exposed view of the windows. Through the lift of the gift shop, you can get to the top where the rides are. I will not go up because every time the rides are on, the shaking send shivering to my spine. Even worse, there is the sky jump where you can jump off the window, and there's a TV channel for all the hotel guests to watch. It's not exactly a bungee jump so I suspect that you can ask for a more gentle decent on the way down to the ground.
Also, I think the hotel has the best view of the surrounding mountains because there's no obstruction at the north strip. Yes, the north strip is under developed. At the garage entrance is an old motel, the sort you see in CSI. But typically you don't walk. I saw walking people drop down like flies in the summer heat. Since the hotel grounds are large, you waste a lot of energy walking from hotel to hotel. And there plenty of cabs around waiting. And honestly significant number of people are from So Cali, so they are bringing their own car.
The surrounding area isn't that pretty, but it would be mad for the LVPD to let anything happen there. It's colorful with wedding chapel, supermarket, convenient stores along Sahara.
A fridge cost $10/night. No coffee maker. Get a $10 kettle from Walmart.
