Just a quick note to share my favorite hotel in Las Vegas: The Marriott Renaissance at 3400 Paradise Road. It is off the strip, but has a beautiful view of the Wynn Hotel and golf course. Ask for a room with a view! The pool is surrounded by the hotel, so plenty of privacy. After a hard night of partying, this is a great place to get away from the strip and sleep it off. Did I mention that there were not a lot of little kids there?
Decor is amazing, service was impeccable. The concierge set us up with dinner reservations at the Paris Hotel with a view of the Bellagio fountains the very first night we got there with only 4 hours notice. Awesome. Like Arnold S. says : "I'll be back!"
I agree - the Las Vegas Renaissance is a great hotel. I stayed there this past weekend and was upgraded to a spacious one-bedroom suite. The staff were very accomodating and pleasant, and the hotel is within walking distance to a few casinos and the monorail.
It is a beatiful hotel with updated amenities, such as alarm clocks with iPod docking station, flat-screen LCD televisions, etc. And who can forget the traditional Marriott bed?! So comfortable! The pool area was also very nice, and although their restaurant, ENVY, is pricey, it is worth every dollar, IMO.
Next time I'm in Vegas, I will definitely be staying at this property again.
