About 10 miles before you hit the Las Vegas Strip, you'll pass a shiny blue gem of a hotel called the M Resort. The "M" is a nod to its creator, Anthony Marnell III, who is part of a family known for designing major resorts in Sin City. His glass-framed hotel is sleek and curved and sure to catch your eye as you travel the freeway from the outskirts into the heart of Vegas.So why stay at a fancy-schmancy place like this sitting on 90 acres of land on the edge of Las Vegas? Sure the M Resort is predominantly a hotel patronized locals. But it is also a great hotel for the Vegas visitor who wants a stylish retreat from the craziness of the Strip but still wants to be within a 10-minute drive of all the action.Since it's off the beaten path, the M Resort is best enjoyed by those who have access to a car. However, if you haven't brought or rented one, that's not a problem. The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to and from McCarran International Airport and the Strip (at the Fashion Show mall).Being on the periphery of the city has a unique advantage -- the views. They're spectacular. And the M Resort has been constructed in such a way that from many of the rooms, restaurants and other amenities (like the pool), it appears as if the Vegas skyline is laid out before you on a platter.Speaking of food, one of the coolest things to experience at the M Resort is Studio B. This buffet-in-the-round boasts more than 200 dishes. Plus -- and this is a big plus -- beer, wine, espresso, cappuccino and even cordials are included in the price. That's right, you can eat (and drink!) to your heart's content. Foodies will also appreciate the adjacent Studio B cooking studio, where demonstrations are held and then broadcast on the 117 flat-screen TVs positioned throughout the buffet.Hungry for more? As the name suggests, Anthony's Prime Steak & Seafood offers fine steak and ocean cuisine. Order a decadent burger in Anthony's Gourmet Burgers & Brews or a small-plate Italian dish at Marinelli's Pasta Bar. Jayde Fuzion combines Japanese, Chinese and Korean flavors, and it has an interactive sushi bar with an all-you-can-eat sushi menu served daily. Open 24 hours, Baby Cakes can satisfy your sweet cravings at any time of day with its homemade gelatos, pastries and cupcakes (topped with what may be the best frosting you've ever tasted).If you want something stiffer than a soda to begin, end or settle down with for an evening, your options at the M Resort include the 32° Draft Bar (with 96, yes that's correct, 96 different beers on tap), M Bar and Ravello Lounge. Or walk downstairs to the Hostile Grape for a wine experience unlike any other. After purchasing a prepaid card in the classy cellar-like setting, you can just grab a glass and start serving yourself…but be careful because there are 160 different wines available through the special dispensing system.The pool area at M Resort is called Villaggio del Sole and -- thanks to two infinity-edge pools and two large hot tubs -- it feels like an oasis in the middle of the desert. Nearby is the dayclub DayDream, an adult-oriented playground with another infinity-edge pool, cabanas, daybeds and an ice-railed bar.And don't miss out on the spa. Spa Mio has 16 treatment rooms. Its services -- like the Desert to Sea Detox body treatment and the Essential M facial -- will bring out the very best in you.Finally, if there's one thing that sums up the M Resort, it's the first thing you'll see upon entering it: the lobby. There's a display of 800 calla lilies here. (A little secret: They're not real, but they are scented.) Placed in floor-to-ceiling steel trellises, these silk faux flowers are stylish and elegant. Not surprisingly, that's what you can expect of your visit at the M Resort.

Our favorite hotel in Vegas. Clean, friendly, quiet, serene and magnificent
PostedApril 6, 2014
It might be a few miles off the main strip, but it is worth it. This is the sanctuary of hotels. The staff are friendly, kind, quick to respond to your needs and very much want to serve it's guest. It is my favorite hotel in Vegas due to simplicity of getting anywhere in the edifice. Best buffet in all of Vegas. It's immaculately clean, years ahead of its time, quiet, well built, beautiful and serene. The staff are the beyond kind and sweet. The M is Magnificent.

For visitors wanting to be in the center of the magic and excitement on the Las Vegas Strip, the Flamingo is a wonderful option. It's located near the always busy Flamingo Road/Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The north entrance of the resort is also connected to The LINQ Promenade, a retail, dining and entertainment district that boasts a giant observation wheel called the High Roller. Plus, when compared to many of the elite hotels in the area, the rooms here offer comfort and luxury at more affordable prices.Situated in the heart of paradise, the laid-back Flamingo is also themed for paradise. In fact, it's always five o'clock in the Margaritaville Casino. Inspired by singer Jimmy Buffett's island-escapism lyrics, the resort constructed a 15,000-square-foot casino at the front of the property that opens right onto Las Vegas Boulevard. The décor features palm trees and tropical colors. Bikini-clad babes serve cocktails, while flair bartenders keep tabs on the shack-style 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar.  Margaritaville Casino is complemented by the multilevel, Caribbean-themed Margaritaville restaurant, which boasts two patios overlooking the Strip and a huge retail store. Festival-like sights and sounds are all around. Parrot Heads can dine in a wooden boat or on its bow. Not only is the place buzzing with Buffett's hits, but there are stilt walkers who craft balloon hats and waitresses who slide down from the top of the three-story Volcano Bar and land in a 300-gallon blender of margarita mix.The party vibe can also be found in the Flamingo Showroom. The family musical duo Donny and Marie Osmond host a nightly extravaganza presenting their greatest hits. (Note: Fans can view costumes from their TV stints on "Dancing with the Stars" and Donny's mirrored disco ball trophy in exhibit cases near the lobby.) Olivia Newton-John is also appearing in "Summer Nights," a residency that runs on select dates through September 2015. You can catch the celebrity impersonators of "Legends in Concert" in the afternoons. In the late evening hours at the X Showroom, men will get all hot and bothered by the beautiful dancers in "X Burlesque" -- while women can learn the secrets to the cast's sexy moves at XBU - X Burlesque University.Another major attraction at the Flamingo is the Wildlife Habitat. Its impeccably manicured grounds are home to pink Chilean flamingos, wood ducks, koi, turtles and other fascinating creatures -- all of which coexist peacefully together. If you are captivated by the playful critters, you may want to have a meal -- breakfast, lunch, dinner or weekend brunch -- in the Paradise Garden Buffet, which overlooks the habitat.Amid the 15 acres of lush greenery lie the resort's spectacular pools. The main pools are interconnected and feature lagoon areas, a seasonal waterslide, a meandering river and cascading waterfalls. For a trendy dayclub experience, visitors will want to check out the Go Pool (open during summer only), where a DJ pumps up the volume for guests reveling in chaise lounges, daybeds and VIP cabanas.In the vicinity, near the enchanting garden and gazebo wedding chapels, a plaque marks the site of the original hotel (erected in 1946 and knocked down in 1993). It also pays tribute to the Flamingo's infamous founder, Bugsy Siegel. This resort is one of the few left in Las Vegas with links to the past. Be sure to behold its pulsating pink and orange neon façade, another rarity in this day and age.When you get hungry, you'll find plenty of places for a relaxing, casual meal -- from the Tropical Breeze Café to the food court. Hamada of Japan serves up an authentic Japanese dining experience, complete with teppan demonstration cooking and a sushi bar. Featuring a black interior with pink accents, the Center Cut Steakhouse perfectly cooks organic steaks, Kobe burgers and rack of lamb. And Carlos'n Charlie's restaurant and bar is known for great food and overflowing spirits -- which often lead to impromptu dancing on the tables and chairs. The restaurant has an expansive indoor dining room and an outdoor patio.In contrast to the resort's easy-going vibe, the action in the casino is always fast-paced. You'll discover a party pit, with female dealers manning pink felt-covered blackjack tables, by the open-air entrance near The Cromwell. A sexy pole dancer entertains from a small cage suspended above the gaming floor. A friendly poker room is tucked next to the lobby, and the race & sports book makes sure all the games are right in your face.Named for the legendary mobster, players can grab a drink in the casino at Bugsy's Bar.There is a wide range of rooms available at the Flamingo. The Go rooms and the recently renovated FAB rooms both have stylish and funky interior design elements as well as flat-screen TVs and other modern amenities. Pets (dogs weighing less than 50 pounds) are welcome in the specially designated PetStay section of the hotel, which contains a dog relief area.Pamper yourself at The Spa. Or if you'd prefer to get out and about, transportation is easy. There's a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so you'll have access to several other resorts along the Strip.

We love the Flamingo. Make sure you are a Rewards member to make check in and out faster. Parking during 4th of July was bad. Not enough spaces. Valet was sold out. This was the only problem we had. Our stay was very pleasant even for 117 degree temps. Can't beat the price. Employees are all very nice and kind.

Does the shuttle to the strip have a cost ?

No cost. It goes from the M to Fashion Place mall. Tipping is a good idea.
