Don't expect to see a lot of pirates at Treasure Island. Arrr...we know...the name of the hotel suggests exactly the opposite. But somehow, as the years have gone by, Treasure Island (often referred to as just "the TI") has shed its "Ahoy, matey!" attitude in favor of a more contemporary, adult-oriented outlook.Now that's not to say you won't see things at Treasure Island that bring to mind the world of buccaneers and buried gold. The architecture and exterior of this place -- which includes a beautiful manmade cove, a boardwalk built from wooden planks and a couple of ships that look like they've sailed the high seas -- definitely suggests you're in for a swashbuckling good time.However, even though the pirate theme has been toned down, there are many other good reasons why you should stay here. You don't need a treasure map to tell you that Treasure Island has got an amazing location. And you won't need a car or a taxi to get around...just a pair of sprightly feet. Situated near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Treasure Island is connected via a free tram to The Mirage, and it's within walking distance of a handful of must-visit resorts (Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian, The Palazzo and Caesars Palace) and four must-shop attractions (the Fashion Show mall, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo, The Forum Shops at Caesars and The LINQ Promenade).Treasure Island also boasts really nice rooms. (No hammocks here!) So you'll enjoy fairly luxurious accommodations -- contemporary décor with all the necessary modern amenities -- for a reasonable price (not the cheapest in town but not the most expensive either). And if you splurge on a suite...well, you'll feel like you've plundered the place.Warm weather days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub) and while away a few hours in Kahunaville Tropical Restaurant. You can have a bite of something exotic, like the Fiery Rock Shrimp, or get a drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar." There's even a luau-style dinner show called "Island Heat LuWOW."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you'll discover several rollicking bars and restaurants. Things get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. You can drink beer, watch bikini bull riding contests, listen to live bands and line dance. The restaurant specializes in barbecuing (including three different kinds of mouth-watering ribs) and has windows that look out onto the Strip.Señor Frog's is infamous for its party scene in Mexico (and, of course, now at Treasure Island). Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth, sitting on "butt" stools or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...and there are two outside areas in case you just want to chill out.For one heck of a good show, get tickets to "Mystère." It's the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas. Packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility, "Mystère" will blow you away.Need a quick bite? Grab slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's and delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs. For heartier meals in a casual setting, The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two wonderful options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steak House. Prime cuts of meat (think filet mignon, venison tenderloin, Colorado lamb and chateaubriand) as well as classic Italian specialties are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen. And you'll always find a fresh catch prepared to perfection at the Seafood Shack.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, you can partake of soothing and revitalizing treatments from around the world -- like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.And if you decide you want to avoid the crowds in the major malls, you can shop up a storm right at Treasure Island. Get everything from jewelry at TI Bling Co. and Bijoux Terner to fragrances at Perfrume Eleven and souvenirs at the Lobby Store and TI Gift Shop. Plus, construction is underway on a new three-story retail center at the northeast corner of the property. It will be anchored by CVS and is scheduled to open in April 2015.So, without being too cliché, the pirate days of yore may have been tossed o'erboard at Treasure Island, but that doesn't matter...because you don't need cannons here to have a blast here.

Good hotel
PostedMarch 13, 2014
The hotel is good. It is starting to show age. The room they gave us was a horrible view! All I could see out the window was the roof of a building. Maybe because our flight was delayed and we got there at about 8pm is the reason we got a low quality room. Room was clean but I wish they had microwaves in the room. All in all, the price was about right for the hotel compared to others

If you're looking for a show that's a fusion of acrobatics, dance and visual effects, accompanied by a classic rock 'n' roll soundtrack, then all you need is LOVE.Show Director Dominic Champagne calls The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil a "rock 'n' roll poem." The show is a slightly psychedelic journey through the trends and politics of the '60s and most importantly, The Beatles' history, told through nearly 30 of the group's songs.LOVE started out as a collaboration between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil's Guy LaLiberté. After Harrison's death, the remaining Beatles and the families of the late group members helped bring Harrison's vision to life, sharing their ideas about song selection and song order for the show.The music director for LOVE is none other than Sir George Martin, who is best known for his work producing The Beatles' music. Martin's son, Giles, is also a music director for the show.Although LOVE features some well-known Beatles songs, it is not meant to be a greatest hits show.The journey starts with the energetic "Get Back" at the scene of The Beatles' farewell concert and then flashes back to Liverpool during World War II when the band members were young children.No journey through the '60s would be complete without a trip through the era of Beatlemania. Acrobats and tumblers on trampolines perform, accompanied by "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Drive My Car.""Help" serves as the soundtrack for four extreme sports athletes who take the stage leaping 11 foot ramps on inline skates."Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Octopus's Garden" are the perfect backdrops for Cirque's famous aerial ballet moves.The show even features a "jam session" created from authentic recordings of the four band members. All of the audio clips and music in the show are from actual recordings from The Beatles' Abbey Road studio.The show concludes with its namesake "All You Need is Love," as a montage of photos of The Beatles plays on huge screens, leaving the audience with a feeling of nostalgia for a bygone era.Besides The Beatles, the other star of the show is the 2,000-plus seat theater itself, which features 360-degree seating. There is not a bad seat in the house and the farthest is only 98 feet from the stage.The sound system is unlike any other - there are 6,341 speakers in the theater and patrons feel as though they are completely enveloped in sound. There are three speakers per seat -- two in each headrest and one in the seat in front of you.The theater also features a complex video system with 28 projectors and two 20-foot-high by 100-foot-wide screens, which contribute to the visual experience.LOVE is not a typical Cirque du Soleil show with high-flying trapeze artists, gymnasts and acrobats. Although there is some of that in the show, it is mainly a theatrical and dance-oriented show. The creators also wanted to bring a bit of the youth of today into the show, showcasing extreme sports, break dancing and street dancing.In the end, it's all about the music and if you're a fan of The Beatles, you'll have nothing but love for this show.-- By Kristine McKenzie

Does hotel offer free shuttle from airport to hotel?

No free shuttle. You can take a shuttle for 7.50 a person to the hotel from the airport but it may take awhile since it stops at most hotels along the way. A taxi to the airport from TI cost me $17 a week ago. Enjoy your trip!
