Now this sounds like an indecent proposal: Come to Vegas...so you can leave and go somewhere else.But that's really not so shocking once you know a bit about how wonderful a getaway to Lake Las Vegas for a night (or two, or three) can be -- especially when you at stay The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa.Located about 20 miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip (approximately a 35-minute drive), Lake Las Vegas is a world of its own.Here's the story: In 1991 the manmade lake was created by building an 18-story dam (just imagine how Lake Mead was formed when Hoover Dam was constructed...but on a smaller scale). A tourist-friendly destination soon took shape around the shoreline dedicated to the pursuits of good food, relaxation and recreation.The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa provides all of these things in spades -- along with beautiful views of the lake. This Moroccan-themed resort melds seamlessly into the rugged landscape, much like a desert oasis. And the atmosphere feels a lot less harried than that of the megaresorts on the Strip.In terms of food, you'd be hard-pressed to find a restaurant more stunning than Marssa, which has huge windows with, of course, lake views. Featuring a fusion of Japanese and Asian cuisines artfully served, the food tastes as delicious as it looks. Plus, there's a fantastic sushi bar at Marssa that boasts 15 different kinds of sake.Rick's Cafe, on the other hand, offers the spices and unique flavors of Morocco in a more casual poolside setting (be sure to have your meal out on the patio).You can also enjoy wonderful signature cocktails (like The Casablanca) and snacks in the Arabesque Lounge. It has dramatic arched windows that open up onto a patio and, what do you know, overlook the lake.When it comes to relaxation, Spa Moulay is a calming sanctuary with 11 treatment rooms. On its menu are an array of blissful massages and facials. Or soak up the sun at The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa's multilevel pool, which has areas perfect for adults and children (thanks to the fun water slide).If you're one of those active souls, stretch your muscles in a yoga class or try stand-up paddleboarding (it's all the rage) on the lake. The resort is also situated next to the Reflection Bay Golf Club. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, many of its 18 holes run along the shoreline (the 8th hole even takes you out to the end of a peninsula). So if you find you need a break from the frenetic pace -- and those clanging slot machines -- on the Strip, a night (or two, or three) at The Westin Lake Las Vegas is actually a perfect proposal.

Rooms have no smoking smell! Fresh and clean!
PostedJuly 24, 2013
Although two blocks from strip, for sleeping comfort in a non-smoking environment this place is the best. Regular rooms not spacious, but quality of bed, coffee maker with Starbucks products and free drinks during happy hour it is a nice command post for exploring the strip. Located on Flamingo road, it is centrally located, less than 10 min. to heart of the action. No rowdy evening crowd to keep you up. Caters to many airline employees. My wife stayed at hotel for peace and quiet while I attended convention. It is close to discount ticket outlet for show tickets! 1 block to monorail station. Green program kicks back $5 per day for food or beverage.

Does the Westin have a shuttle from the airport?

I believe so. Caters to pilots and crew all the time! Call for info first.
