When searching for a family-friendly resort in Las Vegas, some of the Strip properties can be a bit overwhelming. Partiers and club-goers are fun when you’re single or at least when you don’t have kids, or obligations, or social consciences. But once the thrill/molly wears off, you’re left looking for a resort that’s more up your calm and relaxing alley. Welcome to the Suncoast.When you’re planning your family activities, Suncoast has a variety of entertaining options to meet your needs. A 64-lane, Brunswick-equipped bowling alley is great for kids, adults and adults who act like kids. They even offer $1.00 bowling after 10 p.m. certain days. For more outdoor fun, the resort is surrounded by some of the best golf courses in the area and is always happy to help you set up a tee time. The 500-seat showroom hosts a variety of live headliners, from The Lovin' Spoonful and The Manhattans to comedian Ronn Lucas and magician Rick Thomas. And the Time Out Arcade and 16-screen movie theater cater to all ages.Dining options abound at the Suncoast, whether you need to feed the family or indulge in more adult fare. SC Prime Steakhouse & Bar combines an unforgettable view of the Las Vegas valley with a fine selection of USDA prime aged beef dishes. Salvatore's is a charming Italian-themed restaurant, and Coasta Cantina serves up traditional Mexican favorites. The upscale St. Tropez International Buffet boasts seven unique food stations. And several eateries, such as Cafe Siena, The Game and Bagel Corner Deli & Bakery, are perfect for a casual family dining experience. If you’re traveling without kids, or you’ve just left them in the room to entertain themselves with their phones and tablets that they’ve probably had since they were two, Pure Salon & Spa provides exquisite pampering to melt away all the stress of trying to get those devices out of the kids’ hands. The fitness center is open 24 hours a day. And the casino at the Suncoast is a whopping 95,000 square feet, with more than 2,000 video poker and slot machines, 34 table games and a 150-seat race and sports book. The only thing you’ll be missing about the family is that whole love and affection stuff.Set into the modern neighborhood of Summerlin (about 35 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip), Suncoast is a warm and inviting resort perfect for families, older travelers or anyone who cares more about golf and lounging by the pool than clubbing or people watching on the Strip. With easy access to the rest of the city via the beautiful Summerlin Parkway, Suncoast is connected to the Vegas mentality, yet soothing enough to stand on its own.

A hidden gem in Summerlin
PostedMay 28, 2014
If being near the strip isn't important to you, then Sun Coast may be what you are looking for. Friendly check in, massive rooms, and a great array of amenities including a good casino, pool, spa, and selection of restaurants. Booming wi-fi and in-room fridge and safe make the resort fee a decent deal too. The nearby area includes lots of restaurants, and is near a Whole Foods and a Trader Joe's, which is great for us during our grocery shopping runs to Vegas. Value for money, this is one of the better places we've ever stayed in the city.

 Clarion Hotel and Casino
Clarion Hotel and Casino
The Clarion Hotel & Casino is conveniently situated within walking distance of the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's also a short stroll to the north end of the Las Vegas Strip.The accommodations are spacious and decorated in warm hues. There are floor-to-ceiling windows -- with the rooms on the south side of the resort boasting sweeping views of the Wynn Golf Course, the High Roller observation wheel and the Strip. Guests will enjoy numerous amenities including pillow-top mattresses, a work desk, a refrigerator, a coffeemaker, a cable television, a hair dryer and an iron/ironing board. Next to a courtyard, you'll find a recently resurfaced deck with a swimming pool and hot tub. There's a fitness center on the Clarion's second floor that contains a treadmill, two stationary bikes, several stepping machines and free weights. Both of these facilities are open 24 hours.A small 4,500-square-foot casino with slots only (games include Game King, Multi Game and Buffalo) and a bar is also open round the clock. Headliner-style entertainment is regularly featured in the resort's Wolf Theater.Although there is no restaurant on the premises, guests will enjoy a free daily continental breakfast. There is 24-hour food service delivery (menus for local restaurants are available in the rooms). Plus, Piero's Italian Cuisine is only steps away.The Clarion has a 24-hour business center with two computers and two printers. Faxing and copying are available at the front desk.In addition, guests will appreciate that the Clarion is just a 10-minute ride from McCarran International Airport as well as a short distance from many of Las Vegas' hotspots.-- By Renee LiButti

Surprisingly good
PostedNovember 13, 2013
It's important to remember how much you paid for a hotel room when rating it, and Clarion Hotel and Casino was surprisingly good for the money. The room I had was well worn for sure, but included more amenities than I would have expected including lots of cable channels, a fridge, wi-fi, coffee maker, and good towels. The front desk lady was friendly, parking was convenient, and its a short walk to the strip. The on-site casino is small, but I had fun playing a few slots while listening to music over the sound system. There are also live shows in the adjacent theatre - something that isn't mentioned prominently in the website, and hotel guests get free tickets. Worth a look anyway. I'd definitely stay again if I needed an affordable, comfortable room.

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino has a long history.Here's our condensed version: It originally opened in 1969 as the International Hotel. On that first night Barbra Streisand headlined the showroom, and Elvis Presley appeared on the second night. The King of Rock 'n' Roll, of course, would go on to become synonymous with the property -- even after it became the Las Vegas Hilton in 1971. He performed there in a total of 837 consecutive sold-out shows (before a whopping 2.5 million people), thus breaking all the city's attendance records.So why are we sharing this bit of trivia with you? Well, many people refer to those as the good ol' days. And guess what? They're back again!No, Elvis hasn't come back from the grave. But someone who treasures his legacy and wants to return the hotel to its former glory has the reins. David Siegel, founder and CEO of Westgate Resorts, the world's largest privately owned timeshare company, bought the property in mid 2014 and transformed it into the Westgate Las Vegas.Thanks to Siegel, the King will always have a big role at the resort. A famous statue of Elvis by sculptor Carl Romanelli can be found in "the building" (near the lobby, to be more exact). And not only does the Westgate Las Vegas display a collection of authentic memorabilia from The King's Ransom Museum, but it also features Trent Carlini, one of the best Elvis tribute artists around, in the Shimmer Cabaret.So what else is unique at the Westgate Las Vegas?You'll love having easy access to the Las Vegas Monorail. The Westgate Las Vegas is located about a block east of the Las Vegas Strip, next to the Las Vegas Convention Center and about a mile from Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. But if you hop on the monorail, you'll be able to travel easily to several major megaresorts including MGM Grand and SLS Las Vegas.The Westgate Las Vegas is also revered 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. Or try sitting in The Ultimate Fan Cave, which is packed with armchairs. A giant New York deli-style sandwich, subs and good grilled stuff is available just a few steps away at the SuperBook Deli.Speaking of eating, the Westgate Las Vegas has a variety of dining choices…some that might even appeal to Elvis. For instance, Sid's Cafe, a 24-hour eatery in the heart of the casino, serves an item called The Elvis Sandwich, made with peanut butter, grape jelly and sliced bananas (plus it's battered and fried!).Ever been to a hibachi-style restaurant? If not, you've got to try Benihana. There's nothing like sitting by the grill, sipping a few cocktail and cheering on the chef who cooks your meal. Teru Sushi (where you can chow down on the Las Vegas Roll) is near Benihana in a lovely complex with waterfalls and a koi pond.You can get a good steak -- done over a mesquite flame and served with maitre d' butter (we're not sure what that is, but we bet it tastes wonderful) -- at TJ's Steakhouse, which is positioned behind the sophisticated Plaza Bar.Have a big appetite? The spread at The Buffet features flavors from around the world. Or if you desire a quick bite, Fortuna (a coffee and wine bar), 888 Noodle Bar and the food court are all good choices.Now if Elvis isn't your thing, don't be blue…there's other entertainment at the Westgate Las Vegas. You can also see Jason Tenner perform as Prince in "Purple Reign: THE Prince Tribute" and enjoy the sultry topless revue "Sexxy" starring Jennifer Romas.Situated off the casino floor, the Tempo lounge serves classic cocktails...with a twist (we'll give you a one-word clue: "bev-tainers")! 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.At the Westgate Las Vegas, you'll also find several shops (carrying gifts, apparel and sweets), a fitness room and tennis courts. There's a nice pool to lounge around on the third floor with 18 cabanas, a 25-seat hot tub and the Cabana Bar. Or float away in bliss with one of many pampering services at The Spa.One thing to keep in mind if you stay at the Westgate Las Vegas: Since it's part of Westgate Resorts' family of timeshare properties, you'll see a large space (toward the North Tower) dedicated to presentations about the benefits of vacation ownership. You may even be approached by people asking you to attend one.Plus, you'll notice some areas of the resort are under construction. Siegel's long-term plans for the Westgate Las Vegas include upgrades to many facilities as well as the debut of several new restaurants, a dayclub and a nightclub.So don't worry, he's just taking care of business -- and molding the resort into one that's fit for a King.

Nice hotel near the strip
PostedFebruary 26, 2013
We loved our super-clean room and the friendly staff at the LVH. The hotel offers great value for money, and the pool is a nice touch during warm weather. The sports book is easily one of the largest in Vegas, although there are not many nickle slots to keep my spouse busy while I play. The location is just off the strip and close to many other spots, including the convention center. All in all, we'd be happy to stay at LVH again and would look to repeat the specials that include entry to the spa, or stay when there is a name act in the showroom.

adjoining rooms?

I can't speak for all areas of the hotel, but room number 2208 had adjoining doors to rooms on both sides. That's fairly unusual. Because of that, I suspect adjoining rooms are fairly common througout the property.
