The Monte Carlo is an attractive resort located on the Strip -- right in the heart of all the action near the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. Guests who stay here are within walking distance of several of the city's largest resorts and must-do attractions. Plus, they will delight in lofty accommodations without the elevated price.  In addition, the Monte Carlo is perfect for adults seeking a relaxed atmosphere amid Sin City's "visitors gone wild" vibe. This resort tends to attract a mature, more laid-back crowd. It's rarely besieged by college-age revelers or families with lots of tots in tow.  Although the Monte Carlo has a quiet, relaxed attitude, there are still plenty of fun things to enjoy. The showroom has bragging rights to a variety of big-name entertainers, and the Blue Man Group has added their colorful touch to the place.  Culinary perfection is also at your doorstep in the Monte Carlo. At Andre's Restaurant & Lounge, chef Andre Rochat creates a menu with Old World charm, highlighting the best ingredients available each season. Brand Steakhouse is known for its heavenly preparations of oversized steaks and chops. Diablo's Cantina serves devilishly delicious Mexican cuisine in a fiesta-like atmosphere, while d.Vino offers wine enthusiasts countless selections for sampling paired with their signature wood-fired pizza. And for those on the go, the Monte Carlo has casual bites in Corner Cakes, The Café and The Buffet, which features an exhibition-style kitchen. A pedestrian-oriented outdoor experience is currently being built along Monte Carlo's Strip-facing facade. It features the Double Barrel Roadhouse, a sprawling indoor/outdoor venue with a rustic barn vibe and live music. Double Barrel Roadhouse also serves American comfort food with an array of craft cocktails and beers. There's a Japanese-inspired grill and noodle house by Chicago chef Matthias called Yusho. You can sit in the kitchen area to watch the open-flame cooking style as well as in the bar, main dining room or outdoor patio. And at 800 Degrees Pizzeria, you can indulge in specialty pizzas, meatballs, salads and truffle cheese bread. Another unpretentious spot for a nibble as well as the odd pint and some great music courtesy of dueling pianos is The Pub. Insider tip: If the massive main room looks intimidating, take your brew outside on the back patio, which faces the pool -- or there is seating upstairs. Two other unique nightlife venues at the Monte Carlo are the icy wonderland of the Minus5 Ice Bar, where parkas, scarves and gloves are among the recommended attire, and the Ignite Lounge with its LED color-changing lights.Guests can always retreat from the harried pace of the Strip and the casino into the serene parts of the hotel. Along with a lushly landscaped, sun-drenched pool complex (complete with a 400-foot-long lazy river, a sand volleyball court and comfortable cabanas), there's the tranquil Spa & Salon Monte Carlo. Indulge in a variety of fabulous facials and massages at the spa or get your hair done for a night on the town in the salon.If there's anything else you want or need during your Vegas visit, the resort is home to the Street of Dreams. A shopper's paradise, it's packed with women’s and men’s fashions, souvenirs, sunglasses, rock memorabilia, candy and cupcakes (à la The Cupcakery). There is also a stop here for a free tram that connects the property to Crystals at CityCenter and the Bellagio.The Monte Carlo's décor is exquisite, done with imported marble and rich wood furnishings. Crystal chandeliers and sculptured fountains add to the Europe-like elegance. Similarly, the rooms are well appointed. Beds come with fine linens, bathrooms utilize Italian marble and standard amenities include 40-inch LCD cable TVs and iHome docking stations.Another unique component of the Monte Carlo is HOTEL32, situated on the 32nd floor. An exclusive hotel within a hotel, it features five types of suites -- ranging from studios to two-bedroom penthouses. Along with the spectacular view, all of them boast high-tech amenities like BluRay players, multiple flat-screen TVs (including one in the bathroom mirror), and a remote control for the lights, drapes and electronics. Plus, the pampering is over the top. Guests have a personal suite assistant as well as access to limo service. Added touches include welcome amenities, signature turndown gifts and a refrigerator stocked to your preference.When you come right down to it, at the Monte Carlo you get luxury combined with a broad range of dining, shopping and pampering venues -- all headquartered at one of the most ideal locations on the Strip.-- By Renée LiButti

A great hotel at an affordable price
PostedApril 22, 2013
I wanted somewhere low-cost to mid-range on the strip and this fitted the bill perfectly. The room was clean, the hotel pleasant and the pool good. I didn't experience any of the negative points others have mentioned here. I signed up for the M life card to get a discount for The Blue Man Group show which was brilliant. The only annoying thing about my stay is that the TV volume kept resetting meaning everytime I switched it up, the volume was way too loud. Quite a minor gripe really, which shows how happy I was with my stay! I would recommend this place to others, and may stay here again (although generally as a rule I don't use the same place twice, for variety) Tip: Use Express check-out when you leave to avoid queuing.
