Sail away to the Caribbean in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Treasure Island (also known by its hipper initials as "the TI") is something of a tropical island getaway -- and it's set along a beautiful manmade cove.You can celebrate the spirit of the high seas as well as the legacy of pirates here. The décor is reminiscent of the lively markets of colonial times. Instead of a snooze on a hammock, guests rest their weary heads on the resort's exclusive Elite Sensational pillow-top beds in the 2,885 rooms and suites, all are which are outfitted with modern-day amenities.Like the tropics, lazy days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub!) and while away a few hours in Kahunaville Tropical Restaurant. You can have a bite of something exotic, like the Calypso calamari, or get an island-infused drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar." There's even a luau-style dinner show called "Island Heat LuWOW."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you will discover several rollicking bars, restaurants and shops. Things often get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. There are multiple bars within a hangar-like atmosphere. Patrons can drink, watch bikini bull riding contests, dance and listen to live bands. The restaurant, which specializes in barbecue cooking, runs along the front of Treasure Island and sports glass windows looking onto the Strip.Infamous in Mexico for its party scene -- and now at Treasure Island -- is Señor Frog's. Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...but there's an outside balcony for those who just want to chill out, too..For more traditionally staged entertainment, get tickets to "Mystère" -- which is anything but traditional. This imaginative production is packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility. "Mystère" is the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.Several bars are spread throughout the premises including the upscale Breeze Bar and the outdoor Margarita Bar. Need a quick bite? Choose from a variety of fast-served favorites, such as slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's, delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs or pastries and coffee at Starbucks. The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two more wonderful options for speedy, cooked meals morning, noon or night.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steakhouse. Fennel-crusted halibut, spinach and ricotta-stuffed free-range chicken breast  and other American fare with Italian twists are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon is a place that offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, the menu boasts an array of relaxing and revitalizing treatments from around the world, like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.Interested in shopping? You'll find something for everyone -- from jewelry and souvenirs to perfume and apparel. Don't miss the unique items sold at the Couture, TI Bling Co. and Adixion stores. A pedestrian bridge leading to the Fashion Show mall, one of the city's most prestigious shopping venues, is also just steps away. Plus, construction has started on a new three-story, 40,000-square-foot retail center on the northeast corner of the property opposite the Fashion Show Mall. The new retail center is scheduled to open in fall 2014.Perfect for swashbucklers and buccaneers -- or anyone interested in a fun and affordable Vegas visit -- Treasure Island has so many entertainment, dining, shopping and gaming options, along with plush accommodations, you'll think it's all been pillaged and plundered!

My wife and I had stayed in most of the hotels in Vegas, but Treasure Island had the best staff ever. Friendliest by far.
Great location, and the casino was very clean.
Thank you

Experience a vibrant, New Orleans-themed hotel just a few blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip on Tropicana Avenue. The Orleans, a locals-oriented resort, may be far from the French Quarter, but it's not without attractions that bring to mind the Big Easy.For instance, the 140-seat Bourbon Street Lounge -- marked by a giant upside down piano that hangs from the ceiling -- showcases live entertainment. Listen to bands and dance here nightly, just like you would in the world's music capital. Amid the floor-to-ceiling murals that depict idyllic riverboat scenes at Canal Street, eat gourmet delights (like Louisiana crab cakes) that you'd find in New Orleans. Get freshly shucked oysters and clams served with authentic Creole flair at Big Al's Oyster Bar. And drink classic cocktails to your heart's content at the Crawfish Bar, Mardi Gras Bar and Alligator Bar -- all of which boast a lively atmosphere that will transport you to the French Quarter's rollicking streets.There are other forms of entertainment, good food and recreation at The Orleans as well.The resort is home to the Orleans Arena. Hosting about 200 events a year, you'll discover top concerts, sporting events (including college basketball tournaments) and family fun (like Disney on Ice) at this huge venue.The Orleans Showroom, an 850-seat theater, also brings a stellar lineup of headlining musicians and comedians to town. Plus, lounge acts accompany the fine spirits and great beer poured in Brendan's Irish Pub.In addition to live entertainment, guests can amuse themselves at the resort's 70-lane bowling center or catch a flick in the 18-screen Century Orleans cinema. Buzz'n Brushes offers a creative experience for aspiring artists and the not-so-artistic who are just looking for a good time. Not only will you learn the basics of acrylic painting during one of their classes, but you'll also enjoy wine, cheese, socializing, listening to music and dancing to tunes like "Y.M.C.A."There are still more ways to unwind at The Orleans. Young kids (ages 3 - 12) will discover adventure and activities of all kinds at Kids Tyme. The professionally supervised facility offers everything from a giant jungle gym and imaginative crafts to a movie room and PlayStation/Nintendo Wii gaming systems. The Time Out Arcade is designed for teens. Adults will follow their bliss at the Spa Orleans, where you can be pampered by an array of soothing massages, body wraps and facials. While women get dolled up in the beauty salon, men will appreciate a haircut and good old-fashioned straight razor shave in the barber shop.For sun lovers of all ages, The Orleans has an Olympic-sized pool as well as a wading pool and large hot tub. Tucked in a central courtyard that's lushly landscaped, you'll feel well removed from all things urban, especially if you reserve one of the five cabanas where you and your party can soak up some rays in comfort.The resort's fitness center -- with a mix of cardio and muscle-building equipment -- overlooks the pool area, creating a truly pleasant atmosphere for a workout as well as allowing easy access to cool off with a dip after you work up a sweat.The Orleans is packed with good eats spanning many cultures. Costa Cantina serves the spicy cuisine of Mexico. Be sure to try the tacos de pescado and chicken Azteca. Koji features an exceptional dining environment merging elements of a sushi bar and Chinese bistro. Meat lovers will want to walk upstairs to the second-story Prime Rib Loft. Although this restaurant has a stunning view over the casino floor as well as colorful murals of jazz performers, nothing beats its delectable cuts of prime rib.For a quick and casual meal, you can head to T.G.I. Friday's, the 24-hour Courtyard Café or the food court (home of Fuddruckers, Sbarro, Subway and Baskin-Robbins). Those who really want to binge should check out the French Market Buffet, where you can savor Italian, Mongolian, barbecue, American, seafood, Mexican and Chinese cooking, along with items from an enormous dessert bar.Like the city, the casino floor at The Orleans is always bustling. Try your luck on more than 2,600 slot, video poker and video keno machines or sit down at one of the numerous table games. There's also a 19-table nonsmoking poker room that's open 24 hours. Packed with giant high-resolution TV screens, the 125-seat race and sports book is the perfect place to watch the big game.If you're able to tear yourself away from all the excitement in the casino, you'll be more than comfortable in The Orleans' 1,885 beautifully appointed rooms. Available with one king or two queen beds, the amenities include a flat-screen TV, a desk and a spacious sitting area with a plush sofa and armchair.Visitors who don't have a car can take advantage of free shuttle service from The Orleans to its sister property, the Gold Coast, as well as to the Las Vegas Strip.Although it's not in New Orleans, the resort's exterior was designed to resemble the French Quarter, and inside the atmosphere oozes hospitality just like it does in the South. An affordable place to stay, The Orleans is perfectly positioned near the heart of the action in Vegas -- and it offers all kinds of action under its own roof.

You could argue about which is the largest hotel in Vegas -- but in our minds, MGM Grand sure feels like it.This resort, which sits near the south end of the Las Vegas Strip at the busy intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue, is so big it's like a small city. When you check in, you'll want to ask for a map so you can find your way around. It's that ginormous!Here's a number to further illustrate our point: 6,852. That's how many rooms there are at MGM Grand and its collection of related properties -- The Mansion, Skylofts and The Signature.MGM Grand is easy to identify thanks to the huge gold-colored statue of a lion that watches over the front entrance. Towering 45 feet and weighing 100,000 pounds, it sits on top of a pedestal that's framed by LED screens and fountains.Packing a powerful entertainment lineup, you'll have a roaring good time at MGM Grand. The Grand Garden Arena hosts concerts (see everyone from major recording artists like Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga to legends such as Andrea Bocelli, Bette Midler and Barry Manilow), championship boxing and UFC matches, award shows and much more.MGM Grand is also home to the Cirque du Soleil production "KÀ." With some of the most sophisticated stage mechanics imaginable (say these two words with us now: "vertical stage"), this show is a visual wonder. It's comprised of acrobatic feats, martial arts and other cool tricks that we guarantee will amaze you. Plus, the plot about twins being separated by adversity and then finding their way to back to each other is pretty moving too.And Brad Garrett's Comedy Club features a rotating lineup of comedians (that often includes Garrett himself) who will have you doubled over in fits of laughter.In addition, MGM Grand is a partier's dream. Nightclubs and bars are tucked away in almost every corner of the resort. So let's get right down to it, shall we?Just inside the resort's front entrance is where you'll find a line forming to go into the hottest spot in town -- Hakkasan Las Vegas. Seriously, while other clubs claim to sizzle, they really fizzle in comparison to this one. Hordes of club goers come to Hakkasan, where they burn up the main dance floor while listening to the biggest DJs on the EDM scene.Near the center of the casino, you'll discover Beacher's Madhouse. Pushing the boundaries of entertainment and fantasy, it offers a show/club atmosphere with a circus-like energy. Expect to see lots of little people everywhere -- from tending bar to being shot through the air from a canon -- as well as other odd characters, like a quasi-Elmo who runs around dancing with everyone.Among the places to drink, check out MGM Grand's Lobby Bar and center bar, called Centrifuge, as well as Rouge, West Wing Bar and Whiskey Down. Tap Sports Bar has more than 48 draft beers -- plus, you can peruse sports memorabilia and watch games on 60-inch HD TVs.Eating at MGM Grand is like nowhere else, again because of its enormous size. There is literally something for every taste here.Devour what's considered the finest food in the world at Joël Robuchon. This is the namesake restaurant of the legendary chef who has received numerous awards (including enough stars to light the sky at night). His French cuisine creations are truly works of art. Next door, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a similarly divine menu, but in a slightly less formal atmosphere.At Craftsteak, Tom Colicchio has the preparation of steaks, chops and seafood down to a science. Michael Mina Pub 1842 provides a distinctive take on classic pub fare. You can savor in the richness of Creole cuisine at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House. Another imaginative menu -- with items like wood-fired pizza as well as pasta and grilled fish -- is available in Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. Crush has a cool cosmopolitan shared-plate atmosphere. And then there's The Grand Wok and Sushi Bar, Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, Shibuya...and the list of fabulous, gourmet-caliber restaurants goes on and on.Casual meals are available at MGM Grand too. With its animatronic critters, the jungle-themed Rainforest Café provides a wild time for all ages. Hecho en Vegas prepares traditional Sonoran cuisine. If you're extremely hungry, head to the MGM Grand Buffet, which dishes up more than 30 different entrées, pastas, casseroles and fresh veggies. Quick bites are available at the MGM Grand Food Court, Avenue Café and Project Pie. Or grab a decadent treat at Blizz Frozen Yogurt & Desserts, Corner Cakes and the Sugar Factory retail store.For fun in sun, there's the Grand Pool Complex. Along with five swimming pools and waterfalls, you'll love the 1,000-foot-long lazy river. And summertime always brings steamy temptation courtesy of Wet Republic. This chic pool club is the daytime alter ego of Hakkasan.Want to bring out your best self in Vegas? Stop by the Grand Spa and Cristophe Salon for a bit of pampering. If you love the TV show "CSI," don't miss CSI: The Experience. It lets you jump into the role of a crime scene investigator and piece together evidence in order to solve one of three mysteries.We could continue describing even more amenities at MGM Grand...like the race and sports book or all the great places to shop. But, well, what's the point? This resort has everything and then some. You just need to come and stay here for yourself. Soon.
