The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, formerly the LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & 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, Rob Garrett stars in "Neil Diamond: The Tribute" with the K.O.D. Band, and 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.  Vince Neil's Tatuado Restaurant & Cantina is a more lively spot to socialize over drinks (tequilas, beers and signature margaritas like the Smokin' Purple Rita) and indulge in Mexican appetizers. At The Buffet you can devour items from a spread of world cuisine for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. And Burger Bistro, the Paradise Café, Fortuna coffee and wine bar, and 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 drink at the Eighth Pole Bar or 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.-- By Renée LiButti

Voodoo doesn't sound like something you want to mess with, but no matter what you see or hear about it you're always mildly interested in it.Seriously, how much fun would it be to have a voodoo doll of your boss? You don't get that raise you think you deserve? Oh, your boss suddenly gets a broken leg. Annoyed by your boss's smiley face coffee cup? Somehow your boss just spilled scalding hot coffee on himself.Yeah, a voodoo doll could be fun. And what about head shrinking?OK, so VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub isn't necessarily about dolls and head shrinking, but let your curiosity take you inside and somehow it will make you want more.Perhaps it's that VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub is located 51 stories up at the Rio hotel, which lends itself to some of the best Strip views in Vegas. Then there's also the enormous 40,000-pound staircase that had to be air-lifted to the top of the hotel, which gives you two floors of party action.And with half of the party outside and the other inside, there are two distinct vibes.Inside oftentimes can feel like those house parties you went to in college. There is no defined dance floor so that makes pretty much everything fair game. Dance on the tables, booths, chairs and the little bit of a walkway if you wish -- it all adds to the fun.Inside can get pretty packed so if you're feeling confined, step onto the balcony on the 51st floor. Usually there's another DJ playing a different genre of music out here, which can change the vibe up completely and pack crowds in as well.If the Vegas climate suits you, you can escape the crowd by heading down the stairs and onto the 50th floor. There is a VIP area set to one side of the balcony, and on extremely popular nights like New Year's Eve you can reserve the entire balcony for yourself.Best of all, VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub is a one-stop shop for your night's activities. Pad your stomach with a succulent steak or Creole-inspired dish at VooDoo Steak then begin the pregame festivities at the lounge.When the nightclub opens later in the night you've already ensured that you're not partying on an empty stomach and that you've done the responsible thing by consuming a few drinks before you make your Scarlett O'Hara-inspired entrance.Like the magic, VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub will creep up on you and before you know it you're hooked. We don't know if it's the view, the ice-cold drinks or the music, but we do know is a cool place to hang out at on those warm Vegas nights sure beats a shrunken head.

Outstanding blown away
PostedJuly 16, 2013
I got to admit what vegas.com has for dress code an attire is not what the club has listed or allowed. They actually allow jeans an polos an sneakers. Here I am walking in with my wife like we are getting married when we see other people wearing what they feel is comfortable. So check the club an talk to them first before you feel out of place but after a couple of drinks your good an if you tip the bartender a 5 your going to love your drinks right after the first one. The staff was great from the security guard letting my wife in with no ID but I told him why an was cool about it. So all in all the club is the place to be but vegas.com has to read up an update there info.
