LV/IHG?

Two Las Vegas major gaming houses have become members of the 56 million member IHG rewards program as shown here.

 

Most likely not for me, but for others this might be a deal maker (or breaker)

    That's pretty much a big "meh" for me. Since the only reason I go to LV is business-related, there's lots of Marriott properties convenient to (but thankfully not on) the Strip that suit my needs. And, although both the Venetian & Palazzo are pretty cool, I don't think I'd actually want to stay at either—or any other major property on LV Blvd, for that matter.

      Love em both--do not love the smoky-ness of them however.  Marriott is among the few that are totally NS.

        Although it's not a factor in choosing a property, I have to admit that the smoking issue is something that annoys me in the major casino/hotels there. It would be less of an issue if one could go from the hotel registration desk to their room without having to traverse the casino (nearly impossible in LV). I get the whole reason for LV's existence (I mean, why would one go to a Disney property and not plan on going on the rides?), but some of us actually do go there purely for business and would prefer to avoid the rest of the "ambiance".

          seems to be a catch-22.  I love to stay at the LV Renaissance, but hate to get in a cab every time I want to go out to eat.  Yes, there is a great steakhouse on property, but clients usually want to go to one of the 'hot' spots each night.   That said, I usually stay at the Renaissance for the peace and quiet, and smoke-free atmosphere, and put up with the cab rides.

           

          Thank you Marriott for the smoke-free policy!

          And the crowds of course.  We like the Ren off strip

    Yes,

     

    Thank-you Marriott for the NS!  That's a big advantage over Hilton for me.

    IHG is my backup. I doubt I'd stay in either Vegas locale. I do like the fact that they added to their portfolio of hotels.

      PP,

      Since IHG has done a status match to Platinum, I was considering one of those 2, the next time we went to Veagas.  Any particular reason you wouldn't stay at those?  Thanks.

        Tryt,

         

        I tend not to stay in IHG if there are Marriott properties nearby. No other reason, these may be fine locales.

        both of these properties are beautiful and most people would enjoy them immensely if they were going to Vegas wan tine to take in the Vegas experience.  They are huge, gaudy, smoke-filled casino hotels.  I love them both.

    I thought it odd that this story has been making the rounds the past two weeks like the InterContinental Alliance just happened. This change occurred in April 2011.

     

    IHG members earn points on paid stays and may redeem 40,000 points for a free night.

     

    The Venetian and the Palazzo have some of the largest standard suites in Las Vegas and offer good value. These are nice properties with several pools and a great spa environment.

     

    As a Priority Club Platinum member I received complimentary access to the fitness facilities in the spa.
