The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is one of the city's most respected resorts offering a combination of elegance and impeccable service. Located on Paradise Road, just a block from the Strip, the property is also minutes from McCarran International Airport and steps from the Las Vegas Convention Center. There's even a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so guests will enjoy easy access to popular hotels and attractions on Las Vegas Boulevard.The Westgate Las Vegas has a storied history. It has played host to an all-star lineup of entertainers -- the most revered, of course, being Elvis Presley. Serving as his Las Vegas headquarters, the King performed here in an eight-year exclusive run selling out 837 consecutive shows and entertaining an estimated 2.5 million people. Liberace also used to draw big crowds in the main showroom with his flamboyant costumes, amazing piano playing and infectious fun.Today the resort still showcases great entertainment. Check out Trent Carlini, a well-regarded tribute artist who pays homage to the King of Rock 'n' Roll, in the Shimmer Cabaret. Plus, Jason Tenner performs as the artist Prince in "Purple Reign: THE Prince Tribute." Situated off the main casino floor, the Tempo lounge is a stylish venue that serves classic cocktails...with a twist! It's also the perfect spot to gather for pre- and post- theater drinks or to dance to a mix of '70s, '80s and '90s hits in the late-night hours.When you're feeling hungry, the Westgate Las Vegas has several wonderful dining options. The gourmet Japanese restaurant Benihana presents exhibition-style cooking by master chefs on hibachi tables. Authentic Japanese sushi is served in Teru Sushi in Las Vegas, which is found in the same stunningly peaceful complex -- complete with waterfalls and a traditional koi pond -- that houses the Zen Bar and Lounge. The classic upscale restaurant TJ's Steakhouse straddles the sophisticated Plaza Bar. It's noted for its prime cuts and rich mahogany setting.  Sid's Cafe is a 24-hour eatery in the heart of the casino where, as the slogan goes, "everyone is treated like a high roller." Menu options include appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, main plates and desserts -- as well as standouts like The Elvis Sandwich and the Chicken Lollipops. At The Buffet you can devour items from a spread of world cuisine for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. And Fortuna coffee and wine bar as well as the food court are all perfect whenever you desire a quick bite.In addition, the Westgate Las Vegas is beloved among race and sports bettors, thanks to the illustrious SuperBook. This huge facility is THE place to watch a big game. With more than 350 seats, 28 giant screens and one massive 15-by-20-foot monitor, you won't miss a moment of the action. Special niche areas, like The Ultimate Fan Cave, are packed with armchairs. Patrons can always grab a sandwich at the SuperBook Deli.Other amenities at the Westgate Las Vegas include a business center, a state-of-the-art cardio room, the Regis Signature Salon, tennis courts, a car rental agency, concierge services and more. There are gift, apparel and sundries shops. Drift away in bliss with one of many pampering services at The Spa. Or spend the day lounging in the sun by the third-floor pool, complete with 18 cabanas, a 25-seat Jacuzzi and the Cabana Bar. During the summer months, poolside happy hours are held in the early evenings with live entertainment.The Westgate Las Vegas offers 3,000 well-appointed and spacious rooms, along with luxury suites and villas. All of them are equipped with wired and wireless internet access. Most boast panoramic views of the Las Vegas skyline or the surrounding valley and mountains. Among the standard amenities are ultra-soft bedding, a 37-inch plasma TV and an in-room safe. You can opt to stay in one of the Resorts Club rooms for an upgraded level of service and prestige. Among the luxuries are a plush spa robe, silky linens and access to the Resorts Club lounge on the 24th floor, where you'll receive complimentary breakfasts, fresh-baked cookies and snacks as well as be treated to evening wine and cheese receptions.Convention facilities are also top-notch at the Westgate Las Vegas. Along with the Paradise Event Center, providing 70,000 square feet of space, there is a stunning 35,000-square-foot ballroom and nearly 10,000 square feet of combined meeting space. Plus,couples who are interested in tying the knot will find a lovely and intimate wedding chapel, Chapelle de l'Amour, at the property.Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Westgate Las Vegas is an ideal hotel that stands as a beacon of history, elegance and service in Las Vegas.

Good but nothing amazing
PostedAugust 23, 2013
LVH was a pretty typical Las Vegas casino/hotel. I wouldn't say that this is bad, but there were things that would have made it better. We frequently use the wireless internet connection (at any hotel we stay at) and they only allow one device for free the 2nd is an extra $14 per day. We used the monorail for transportation becasue it was much cheeper than cab fair and we were able to get just about anywhere on the strip in a reasonable amount of time. The resort fees were about $20 per day and the room rate was very inexpensive. . .All in all, LVH is a decent place to stay, but you get what you pay for here, so don't expect any like the Bellagio.

If you stay at the Luxor hotel you'll always easily be able to find your way back to it no matter how directionally-challenged you are. Not only is its distinctive pyramid shape one of the most recognizable landmarks in Las Vegas, all you have to do is look for the world’s strongest light beam shooting up into the sky from the top. It's so bright that on a clear night, it's visible up to 275 miles away by airplanes at cruising altitude.When the Luxor opened in 1993, it proudly touted an Egyptian theme with things like a Nile River ride and a replica of King Tut's tomb. Today, you'll still see replicas of Cleopatra's Needle and the giant sphinx outside, but Luxor has traded most of its Egyptian roots for a hipper, more high-energy vibe.Luxor is one of the most unique places to stay in Las Vegas. There are 4,400 rooms and suites housed inside the pyramid and two 22-story towers. If you're staying in the pyramid, check out the Luxor's version of a thrill ride. You'll have to reach your room by "inclinator," an elevator that travels along the inner surface of the pyramid at a 39-degree angle. We're willing to bet you’ve never had an elevator ride like this before.There are plenty of ways to get your party on at Luxor. Start out at Flight, a bar with cocktails, beers and inexpensive shots. It's a great pre-game before clubbing at LAX, a two-story nightspot for the hip-hop and Top 40 crowd. If you want something a little more laid back, the lobby bar, Aurora, is open 24 hours and serves contemporary cocktails. Just look for the cool lighting effects on the ceiling that mimic the Northern Lights.Luxor has dining options that will satisfy just about every taste. T&T (Tacos & Tequila) features a combination of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine and a rock 'n' roll atmosphere. Our advice: stop in on Sundays for the Mariachi Brunch and kick that hangover with specially priced margaritas and bloody Marias. Those with gourmet tastes will enjoy a good steak or fresh seafood at Tender. On the go or traveling with kids who are picky? There’s also a food court with fast food favorites.There's enough entertainment and attractions at Luxor to keep everyone happy. Guys will love the sexy ladies of "Fantasy" and hilarious prop comedian Carrot Top cracks everyone up. Your teenager will dig the hot urban dance crew Jabbawockeez, who perform in the show "PRiSM.” And magic lovers will be mystified by "Criss Angel Believe." Cirque du Soleil joined forces with the "Mindfreak" magician to create this show filled with illusions.Guests of all ages will want to explore Luxor's two museum-quality exhibits. "BODIES...The Exhibition" illustrates the inner workings of the human body by showcasing real bodies and organs. Sounds like it could be a bit gruesome, but it's actually really fascinating. "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" tells the story of the doomed ship through a display of authentic artifacts and some eerie re-creations of the Grand Staircase, the Promenade Deck and a first-class cabin. Plus there is a 15-ton piece of the ship's hull (the largest piece ever raised from the wreck) on display. Guests at Luxor can also easily take advantage of amenities at either Mandalay Bay or Excalibur next door. Mandalay Bay and Luxor are connected by The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, which houses unique shops and restaurants. A free tram also provides easy access between all three hotels.There are dozens of ways to stay busy at Luxor but maybe your vacation is all about relaxing. They've totally got that covered too. Four large pools, a whirlpool and 12 private cabanas make up the Luxor's five-acre pool area. There's also a spa where you can be pampered with an array of treatments.

Decent hotel and casino, but bring your walking shoes
PostedJanuary 29, 2013
Our first room was almost as far away as it could have possibly been from any elevator. We were on the 6th floor and our friends were on the 4th floor. There isn't an elevator that connects these two floors, so we had to either take the stairs or use the elevator to go down to the 2nd floor and the get on a completely different elevator to get to the 4th floor. They were kind enough to change our rooms after the first night and this wasn't an issue. However, the room I was in had a leak in the cieling. They upgraded us to a room that was slightly nicer in the East Tower. Nice room, but honestly not a huge difference.
The casino dealers (blackjack, pai gow poker, Texas hold 'em) were all great. The blackjack and paigow dealers were helpful in tricky situations. I left the table up so I guess I can't complain.
The restuarant were really good. Rice and Company was great. It isn't all that expensive and the food was great. Tacos and Tequila was good as well.
We bought a VIP booth in LAX and had a great time, but they were pretty quick to remove a friend. They said he was too drunk, but he was just hand. For the money we were giving them We'd hoped that they would have been a bit more tolerable. Lots of good looking women and good VIP hostesses.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Gather round, fair maidens, brave knights and jesters of all shapes and sizes. Prepare yourselves for all the righteous revelry of the Middle Ages, minus the black plague and with much less chance of being executed for being a witch. If you’ve ever fantasized about staying in a castle, but didn’t feel like giving up TV, room service or indoor plumbing, Excalibur is the ideal mix of modern convenience and seventh century style.Have a few wee ones you’d love to take on vacation before it’s time to kick them out of the castle? Excalibur is the perfect place for a family getaway. Let your kids, and yourself, go wild playing arcade and all other sorts of games in the Fun Dungeon – the most fun you can have in a dungeon without being the dungeon master. The pool area has a waterslide. (Note: Waterslide is probably not historically accurate.) And the Tournament of Kings, a show fit for royalty, or anyone who’s a fan of jousting, will enthrall fans of all ages. Once the kids have gone to bed, the adults can indulge in the naughtier side of nightlife with Thunder From Down Under, a raucous adventure full of the hottest men of the Outback stripping down to their knickers for your enjoyment. If the biggest reason you want to rule a kingdom is to see nearly naked men dance for your pleasure, then this is the show and the venue for you. And never let anyone tell you to rethink your priorities.Once you’ve worked up a medieval appetite from watching hunks dance and sword fight, or from doing whatever it is you choose to do in the dungeon, Excalibur has a variety of restaurants for you to slam your goblet on the table and demand more mutton. The Steakhouse at Camelot, a Zagat Award winner, prepares fine cuts of beef, fresh seafood and decadent desserts. Enjoy Old World hospitality and family-style service at the beloved Italian restaurant chain Buca di Beppo. And if you’re so over the royal treatment, head to the not so subtly named Dick’s Last Resort to savor a menu of pub grub complete with Macho Nachos, Mumbo Jumbo Chicky Wings and the Big Ass Burger all while tolerating the sarcastic staff who make you feel like a whelp being walloped for something you know you totally deserve.On the weekends an area dubbed "The Party Pit" features table games set near a stage topped with scantily clad dancing girls. And the 12-table poker room hosts a sexy "Strip Poker Tournament" on Saturday nights, where guests can watch a lovely lady remove items of her clothing on losing hands. But if you want something more romantic, have a fairytale wedding in full garb, or whatever you happen to be wearing when you decide to get married, at the Canterbury Wedding Chapel.For a family affair, or an affair of the medieval kind, Excalibur has excitement, extravagance and an extra helping of magic that will make you feel like you’ve been exported to a far off land. Really you’ll still be in Vegas, so you can easily take the monorail down to Luxor and Mandalay or walk across to New York New York. But Excalibur is all about embracing the fantasy. So live it up ye kings, queens and knaves. The glory of Excalibur awaits thee.

Good customer service but no wifi here
PostedJanuary 22, 2013
We frequently travel to Vegas. Usually, The Excalibur is a less expensive option if you want to be on the strip. We booked a standard king room and when we got to our room we had been given a full size bed in a room the size of a shoe box. We went back down to the check-in desk and they appologized and gave us a much better room. The beds are very comfortable, but The Excalibur doesn't have wifi. If you're going to pay a $35 resort fee for an internet connection, you would hope for a wifeless connection. My wife works online as a college professor and even the hard-wired connection wouldn't work (she has a Macbook air). She had to work at the downstairs Starbucks and was pestered by a few drunken gamblers. . .Overall, we enjoy the Excalbur, but there are a few easy things that they could do to upgrade this place.
