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).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, there's a three-story retail center at the northeast corner of the property anchored by CVS.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.

Who said being the center of attention was a bad thing? Located in the heart of the ever-lively Fremont Street Experience, The Fremont Hotel and Casino has taken downtown's center stage and isn't leaving anytime soon.This recently remodeled 14-story hotel, welcomes guests and visitors alike with glowing marquees and inexpensive fun.Boasting a 32,000-square-foot casino that is open to the energetic Fremont Street explorers, the Fremont is home to 1,000 slots, video poker and keno machines as well as 24 table games, live keno, and a 42-seat Race and Sports Book.  Located right next to the Race and Sports Book is the Fremont's Paradise Buffett. With eight stations, it is very likely that you will find an entree to satisfy even the most persistent of cravings. However, even if your needs were met in the buffet, you will eventually need to refuel again and The Fremont offers several additional eateries to keep you satisfied. More casual dining can be enjoyed at the Second Street Grill, which is known for its Pacific Rim-influenced cuisine, or Tony Roma's, which sure to tempt your palate with flavorful char-grilled ribs, chicken and burgers. Short on time? Go for a hot dog, salad or Chinese dish at Lanai Express – or just grab a coffee and a sweat treat at Dunkin' Donuts or the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  With direct access to Fremont Street and a nearby stop for the Strip and Downtown Express bus line, adventures begin just steps outside of the hotel. Whether you're content exploring downtown  or if you're seeking out Las Vegas Boulevard, the Fremont Hotel and Casino is a convenient place to call home base.

Would stay there again. The room was nice we arrived early and got upgraded to a suite. Everyone was friendly. For one of the older hotels it was pretty nice. I would recommend this hotel.
