There's always something going on at the Stratosphere, which is conveniently situated between downtown Las Vegas and the Strip. The resort, which boasts the tallest freestanding tower in the United States, is also home to several great restaurants, two enjoyable shows, plenty of shops and four heart-stopping thrill rides.At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower dwarfs everything else in the city. Since it extends to such a great height, it's visible from nearly every vantage point in Las Vegas. So you can just imagine the extraordinary perspective you'll have when looking down upon the entire valley from the top. In less than 40 seconds, high-speed elevators will take you to the 109th floor, where there's an indoor and outdoor observation deck.It's hard to believe four thrill rides and the Air Bar -- as you may find you need a drink! -- are also located here. Screams of terror as well as delight can be heard coming from X-Scream (something of a giant teeter totter), Insanity (a chaotic spinning ride) and SkyJump (a cable-controlled freefall). The Big Shot, a fearsome ride that shoots straight up into the air and then drops back down to the launch pad, somehow temporarily eliminates the feeling of gravity.A safer and saner way to enjoy the tower is with a fine meal in the Top of the World restaurant. One of Las Vegas' premier gourmet rooms, it serves sophisticated cuisine impeccably paired with wine and complemented by a 360-degree view of the city -- because the floor makes a complete rotation every 80 minutes. If you just want to sip on a cocktail while taking in the extraordinary views, head up a floor to the Level 107 Lounge.Preparing eccellènte pasta and other Italian delights is the pride and joy of Fellini's Ristorante Italiano. Singing for your supper is all the rage at Roxy's Diner. The cool waitstaff in this nostalgic restaurant, known for its old-fashioned home cooking, often put on a show. Stop by McCall's Heartland Grill for a hearty mix of steak and seafood in a Midwestern-style restaurant. The Buffet -- with its array of cuisines, carving stations, a deli area and fresh-baked pastries -- is simply delicious at any time of the day. Or the Tower Pizzeria & Creamery is a great place to grab a quick slice and a scoop of ice cream.Through Dec. 20, 2014, Frankie Moreno and his 10-piece band create a party atmosphere each evening in the resort's main showroom with their undeniable musical talent, swagger and shots of Crown Royal whiskey. They play a captivating collection of classic covers and original hits. Moreno has also produced a show called "Pin Up." The swingin' production stars Claire Sinclair, a Playboy Playmate, and was choreographed by Lacey Schwimmer of "Dancing with the Stars."Open seasonally, summers at the Stratosphere are best spent at the Level 8 Pool, located on the eighth floor. In addition to a hot tub, poolside café and bar, you'll always find a game of water volleyball in session.For a more serious workout, check out the resort's 24-hour fitness center. Or do something wonderful for both your body and spirit by getting treatment, massage or facial at the Roni Josef International Salon & Spa. It's guaranteed to melt all your stresses away!For those who dream of shopping around the world, there's the Tower Shops with 32 stores and an eclectic mix of retail carts. Explore the avenues of Paris, the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and the ritzy neighborhoods of New York City at this unique retail complex that features replicated street scenes from those iconic shopping cities.About a mile from both the heart of the Strip and downtown, the Stratosphere offers visitors a convenient connection to all the action via The Deuce and the Strip and Downtown Express bus systems.No visit to Las Vegas would be complete without exploring the Stratosphere and its famous tower -- and staying here is even better. The resort is affordably priced and perfectly placed for a fantastic vacation!

PostedApril 1, 2013
I've stayed at the Stratosphere before back in 2008 but they really haven't maintained the rooms very well since then. It's cheap and you get a cheap room. I honestly don't spend much time in the hotel during my Vegas vacations so it wasn't really an issue but the a/c wasn't working properly, the sink was broken and there was a floodlight pointing right into our window. The room also didn't come with a safe which is odd for Vegas but you can leave small items in the casino cage. The location used to not bother me so much but that area of town has gotten really sketchy since Sahara closed down, not real safe to walk around anymore.

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.

Reasonably Priced but Nothing Flashy
PostedAugust 20, 2012
Even though I made the reservation over a month in advance they did not have a room available for us when we checked in. They ended up putting us in a room right next to the elevators which was very loud and the non-smoking room smelled badly of smoke so we had to switch to a room with two beds instead of a king. It was better than the elevator noise and did not smell but was definitely a downgrade and the hotel did not give us any compensation for downgrading. The pool was small but there were not many people out there so it wasn't bad. Overall, this hotel has gone down in quality and service since it became the LVH but for the price, you get pretty much what you paid for.

Location, location, location. If that's what you're looking for in a hotel, then Harrah's is for you.The hotel is pretty much dead center on the Las Vegas Strip. Walk across the street and see all the attractions at Caesars Palace and The Mirage. Head next door and you’ll be at The LINQ Promenade, which features shops, restaurants and The High Roller, the world’s largest observation wheel. (Hint: If you really like looking at the massive observation wheel, book one of the High Roller view rooms at Harrah's.)Convenience is also key at Harrah's. It’s home to a Las Vegas Monorail station, which means you can easily access all parts of the Strip, and it provides free shuttles to the nearby Rio hotel.With all of the fun going on at Harrah's, chances are you might not want to travel too far from the hotel though.Harrah's is home to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill, where you can find live country music and dancing to go along with your fried bologna sandwich.Do your best Billy Joel impersonation and sing along with the crowd at the Twins Dueling Pianos show at Piano Bar. Or take the mic yourself for TJ's Karaoke Party. Just be aware that what happens here might end up on You Tube.Head outside and follow the sounds of raucous partying to Carnaval Court where you'll find flair bartenders, live music and lots and lots of creative cocktails.When you work up an appetite, Harrah's has plenty of ways to satisfy it. KGB: Kerry's Gourmet Burgers features the culinary genius of celebrity chef Kerry Simon in a funky Russian atmosphere. That means not only do they have amazing burgers, they have vodka too. And don't even think about leaving without having a Captain Crunch milkshake.Want to impress your date? Take them to Ruth's Chris Steak House, which has unparalleled views of the Strip and signature cuts of USDA Prime steak, broiled in an 1,800-degree oven.The 24-hour Fulton Street Food Hall also offers a ton of options ranging from indulgent bakery-fresh pastries to homemade soups, artisanal sandwiches, made-to-order sushi and seven different types of pizzas.Entertainment is always on the menu at Harrah's as well. Since 2000, magician Mac King has been mystifying as well as cracking up audiences of all ages in the afternoons. If you'd prefer to be keeled over in laughter in the evenings, get tickets to see the Improv Comedy Club or Rita Rudner. And you can rock out to "Million Dollar Quartet," the hit Broadway musical about the night Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley performed together at Sun Records Studio.No Vegas resort would be complete without a casino and Harrah's has 87,000 square feet of gaming fun. You'll find video poker, slots, table games and more. Before you gamble, just be sure to find "The Greenbacks" and take a photo with them for good luck. Trust us, you can't miss the statue of gaudily-dressed tourists Winnie and Buck along with their dog Chip. They're dripping in all the cash they just won and hopefully you will be too.
 

pets

Are pets allowed? Is there a place to walk them?
I doubt pets are allowed, I've never seen them, besides Vegas really isn't the place for pets or children. Too much smoke, broken glass and drunk crowds.

do all rooms have safes? can I rent tuxes or a sports coat?

We stayed in a basic room, there was no safe, when I called the front desk to get one they said they don't have ones they can bring up. You can store small things like a wallet in the casino cage although if you lose the key they charge you $100 to replace.

I don't know if you can rent a tux there but it isn't hard to find a place that does in Las Vegas

Yes! The pool is open although I did not use it when I went March 25-27 cause it was still a little cool
