A diamond in the rough, Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa is a local favorite on the northwest side of Las Vegas. Set against the backdrop of the breathtaking Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, the resort is located only 10 miles west of the Strip on Charleston Boulevard, just off the Las Vegas Beltway in Summerlin.Masterfully combining sophistication, exuberance and class with the highly-sought after Las Vegas party vibe, Red Rock is far more than a hotel and casino -- it’s a tucked away oasis equipped to cater to the beckoning call of Las Vegas locals and visitors alike.Aesthetically complimentary to its natural surroundings, the 800-room property boasts desert-inspired architecture and features materials like stunning crystals, exotic woods, red sandstone as well as lovely water features that trickle to your heart’s content year-round.And while the pools are not open year-round, when the summer months begin, The Sandbar Pool -- located atop the resort’s four-acre deck -- is the place to be. Configured in a circular pattern, the main pool is centrally located on the deck with a stunning fountain bursting from its center, while its outskirts are occupied with eight smaller wading pools as well as lounge chairs, daybeds and cabanas. On the wet deck, you'll also find poolside gaming and a café and in the evenings, this area is often converted into an open-air nightclub that hosts concerts and special events.And yes, while it’s true that you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, you have absolute permission to judge Red Rock by its dining selection (because it's really great). Brimming with delicious offerings from the restaurants that cover just about every craving, the restaurants within the resort are frequented by locals who aren’t even staying at the hotel. Yes, they are that good. The upscale steakhouse T-Bones Chophouse cooks delicious dry-aged prime steaks and bone-in meats and Yard House dishes incredible contemporary American fare, with more than 130 beers on tap... yep, 130 bubbly drafts. You can also savor heaps of old-fashioned barbecue at Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que. Additionally, Hearthstone offers rustic American restaurant kitchen meals by Chef Brian Massie of The Light Group. If you’re feeling a bit worldlier on your dining endeavor, Mercadito features creative Mexican cuisine including freshly prepared ceviches, corn masa tortillas, guacamoles and salsas while the 8 Noodle Bar (known for its steamed buns and ramen noodles) features a menu with touches of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Thai cuisine influences.And yes, we understand the pain of enduring the  indecisiveness of that one person in your group (we all know who this person is in our circle of people) so we are happy to let you know that Red Rock is also home to The Feast Buffet that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a selection featuring a variety of globally-inspired dishes (a.k.a. something for everyone).  But for the night owls and early birds, the Grand Café is open around the clock and ready to serve you everything from breakfast skillets to prime rib whenever hunger strikes. And lastly, for quick bites, The Wiener's Circle (the famed hot dog stand from Chicago) and the food court are always solid options if you’re running late for your movie or cosmic bowling date.Located right next to the food court is Red Rock Resort's 16-screen Regal Cinemas and IMAX complex as well as the Red Rock Lanes -- a 60-lane bowling center with a state-of-the-art audio and visual system so the venue can be transformed into a nighttime party atmosphere with glowing lights, strobes and fog.But if you’re more into the relaxing atmosphere, take it from us that we know why the resort’s spa is mentioned in the full resort name – Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa. The spa and salon at Red Rock offers everything from sumptuous body treatments and massages to a top-of-the-line hair salon as well as manicures and pedicures. There's also a variety of customized outdoor recreation programs that involve hiking, kayaking, rock climbing and bike riding through the Adventure Spa. And if your idea of a day at the spa has simply become a break from the broken record, “mom, mom, mom?” soundtrack of your life for an hour or two (or three…four?), parents will appreciate Kids Quest -- an indoor recreation area for children between six weeks and 12 years of age to play and learn with a daily array of fun and educational activities while parents enjoy some grown-up playtime.  Speaking of playtime (for grown-ups, that is), in the evenings there is no shortage of entertainment and drinks. Elvis Monroe, Zowie Bowie in addition to other bands can be found regularly in Rocks Lounge and the Onyx Bar. You can also relax with a cocktail in the Lucky Bar and the Cabana Club.The casino is also filled with glitz, glamour and action. There are 3,000 of the latest slot and video poker machines and 60 table games to choose from. In addition to a high-limit room, gamblers will discover a 206-seat race and sports book, a smoke-free poker room, a sprawling bingo hall (with smoking and non-smoking sections) and a keno lounge.However, even with all of the activities inside of the resort, there is plenty to do just outside of the hotel’s doors as well. Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa has an outdoor pedestrian walkway that links to Downtown Summerlin, a 1.6 million-square-foot shopping and entertainment destination across the street. Also, the Las Vegas Strip, which offers an assortment of world-class entertainers, shops, restaurants and thriving nightlife, is only a 20-minute drive away.Packed with entertainment offerings, exquisite dining, exceptional amenities, and in close proximity to the stunning Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, this off-the-Strip resort is near the heart of the city but far enough away to give its guests a unique Las Vegas experience.

I loved the Hotel, wish the mall next door was open.
PostedSeptember 30, 2014
There is nothing I didn't like about the hotel, room and casino. I didn't like the buffet but the price was great and my son liked it. I would stay there again and again, it was wonderful. I also like the choice of Eaterys, loved Lucille's.

For the history buffs and artifact appreciators alike, the Main Street Station Hotel and Casino is a sure bet just steps from the heart of downtown Las Vegas.Set in the splendor of the Victorian era, the ‘70s-built property is home to a 28,000-square-foot casino, more than 400 hotel rooms and a microbrewery on the premises with drink specials that will make you a believer of love at first pint.Upon entry and check-in at the resort, visitors will be captivated by numerous items inside the property. The lobby, which resembles a train depot with long wooden benches, is replete with turn-of-the-century artifacts including vintage coin-operated slot machines – oooo, ahhhh - apothecary cabinets (void of old-timey and most likely poisonous medications) and a pair of pipe organs, all of which add pleasant character to the hotel’s ambiance in a random-antique-combination sort of way. Additionally, in one of the men's restrooms, a portion of the Berlin wall is stoically perched for a little relief room décor. But perhaps the most prominent artifact within the resort is the striking statue of a wild boar in the center of the resort's main bar that once stood in a fountain in Nice, France… nice touch, huh? Interested in challenging yourself to a little game of life-sized “I Spy?” Request a map at the front desk to pinpoint even more treasures located throughout the resort.For example, railroad enthusiasts will delight in examining several fully restored train cars placed along the sidewalk directly outside of the resort. To intrigue your curiosity, guests get to view the various cars including the dining compartment, kitchen and sleepers from the opulent Cascade, which was built for a railroad executive in 1897. Also permanently parked at the Main Street are the Pullman cars of the Blackhawk, which used to transport the famed Buffalo Bill Cody and other stars of the "Wild West Show" across America.  Is the history buff inside of you hungry for more? Everywhere you look, something beautiful is sure to catch your eye. The hotel’s interior alone features high ceilings, sprawling columns, ornate bronze doors and intricately-carved woodwork in addition to artful stained glass windows and chandeliers (including one from the Figaro Opera House in Paris) that will leave you breathless.Now, that your history craving is fed, how about satiating that food craving next? The cuisine at Main Street Station is as popular with locals as it is with visitors, thanks to a buffet and microbrewery that perfectly blends modern flavors with a fun dining experience.The Garden Court Buffet offers a wide array of global cuisine that is prepared freshly for guests and visitors to devour breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or a weekend champagne brunch.  In addition to the buffet is the Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery that is always packed and always ready to pour you a cold one (or three!) straight from the brewery’s tap. Here you will find eight to nine handcrafted beers on tap (several of which have won awards), and you can take a gander at the giant copper vats used to create them. The menu includes fresh baked pizzas and pub favorites ranging from burgers to fish and chips. Plus, there's a special section of the restaurant where sushi and oysters are served.The 28,000-square-foot casino at Main Street Station is a lively area of the hotel brought to life by more than 800 slot and video poker machines, and a wide array of table games. However, if relaxation is what you're going for, go ahead and lounge poolside at the resort's quaint outdoor pool.In addition to being charming, Main Street Station is also very conveniently located. Connected via the Bridge Avenue walkway to the California Hotel & Casino and only a block from the famous Fremont Street Experience, all of the downtown excitement is just steps from the hotel’s main entrance. Similarly, visitors can also enjoy other activities, like shopping at the nearby Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North or catching a Broadway production or musical concert at The Smith Center, a new world-class performing arts venue in the heart of our city.Charmingly delightful with a little history, a little play, and a lot of a fun, Main Street Station is ideal for anyone who is looking to experience the excitement of Las Vegas at an affordable price that doesn’t sacrifice a good time.

I loved the location near my gym and the hotel staff was wonderful.
PostedMay 6, 2014
Full of old Hotel charm, warm staff, location filled my needs. Gaming was competitive, I actually won some, Rooms were better than some hotels much more expensive and the room staff knew when I was out of the room and came in took care of business, so I didn't have to wonder when they would come. Cute place, loved the Hawaii themes restaurant and loved that the two hotels, Sam Boyds, combined their resources. I will stay again. At the price of the room there were some issues but for me it was great and I could avoid the Fremont Street Experience or not. Lastly, convenient to the Mob Museum.

 BB Kings Classic Soul Dinner and Show
BB Kings Classic Soul Dinner and Show
A dinner and show with soul By Caroline FonteinGuests at B.B. King's Blues Club get more than just a taste of Southern-style cookin.' They also get a hearty helping of live entertainment. The club features a rotating lineup of live bands that perform in the evenings. There’s no better way to enjoy some “famous lip-smacking ribs” or a roasted chicken dinner than while listening to songs by artists like Otis Redding, Ray Charles and of course, B.B. King.Dinner seating for this show begins an hour before the live entertainment starts, giving guests an opportunity to get seated and order their meal before the performers take the stage. Almost every seat in the restaurant has a good view of the stage. There are three bars in the main restaurant area and another one located by the main entrance. For guests who want to do more than just sing along from their table, a dance floor in front of the stage offers a place for the crowd to get down and get funky. The three-course Classic Soul Dinner menu includes a choice of either salad or gumbo to start with and your choice of either Carolina BBQ salmon, B.B. King's "famous lip-smacking ribs," a seven-ounce USDA filet mignon or the roasted chicken dinner. For dessert the menu features banana bread pudding. The portion sizes are generous, and the food is prepared with comfort in mind. You won't find any bells and whistles here, just friendly service, satisfying entrees and a casual atmosphere that facilitates great music and good times.The live entertainment changes almost every night of the week. The main acts, The Memphis All-Stars and The Grant Garland Trio, perform on the weekends. Each band has its own style, but they all play classic, upbeat songs that make people want to clap their hands and get up and dance.On the night the show was attended the band performing played covers of hit songs including: "Lady's Night" (Kool and the Gang), "Brick House" (Rick James), "Return of the Mack" (Mark Morrison) and "No Diggity" (Blackstreet). The band performs while food is being served, creating a vibrant backdrop for dining. After finishing their meals some guests clapped and grooved along to the music in their seats while others got up and made their way to the dance floor. There's no barrier between you and the music. Hearing the person talk next to you can be a little challenging, but who goes to a dinner and show at a place named after a blues legend for the conversation?If you have a hankering for some Southern comfort food paired with great live entertainment, B.B. Kings Classic Soul Dinner and Show delivers.The Memphis AllStar BandThe Memphis AllStar Band is a group of hand-selected musicians chosen to be the house band at B.B. King's. Complete with a full horn section, the band performs music inspired by the King of Blues, the Queen of Motown and the Soul of Funk. The Grant Garland BandGrant Garland is a rising star in the music world. A talented pianist and guitar player, Garland wins over audiences with his ability to emulate and embellish upon musical influences from an array of music legends including Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Elton John, Sly & The Family Stone, Otis Redding and more. He's also a talented trumpet and flugel horn player, enabling him to perform a wide range of music. Garland has performed in venues throughout the nation and has opened for various artists including Bobby "Blue" Bland, Exile, Preston Shannon and Jason D. Williams.
