Sail away to the Caribbean in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Treasure Island (also known by its hipper initials as "the TI") is something of a tropical island getaway -- and it's set along a beautiful manmade cove.You can celebrate the spirit of the high seas as well as the legacy of pirates here. The décor is reminiscent of the lively markets of colonial times. Instead of a snooze on a hammock, guests rest their weary heads on the resort's exclusive Elite Sensational pillow-top beds in the 2,885 rooms and suites, all are which are outfitted with modern-day amenities.Like the tropics, lazy 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 Calypso calamari, or get an island-infused drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you will discover several rollicking bars, restaurants and shops. Things often get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. There are multiple bars within a hangar-like atmosphere. Patrons can drink, watch bikini bull riding contests, dance and listen to live bands. The restaurant, which specializes in barbecue cooking, runs along the front of Treasure Island and sports glass windows looking onto the Strip.Infamous in Mexico for its party scene -- and now at Treasure Island -- is Señor Frog's. Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...but there's an outside balcony for those who just want to chill out, too..For more traditionally staged entertainment, get tickets to "Mystère" -- which is anything but traditional. This imaginative production is packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility. "Mystère" is the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.Several bars are spread throughout the premises including the upscale Breeze Bar and the outdoor Margarita Bar. Need a quick bite? Choose from a variety of fast-served favorites, such as slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's, delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs or pastries and coffee at Starbucks. The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two more wonderful options for speedy, cooked meals morning, noon or night.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steakhouse. Fennel-crusted halibut, spinach and ricotta-stuffed free-range chicken breast  and other American fare with Italian twists are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon is a place that offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, the menu boasts an array of relaxing and revitalizing treatments from around the world, like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.Interested in shopping? You'll find something for everyone -- from jewelry and souvenirs to perfume and apparel. Don't miss the unique items sold at the Couture, TI Bling Co. and Adixion stores. A pedestrian bridge leading to the Fashion Show mall, one of the city's most prestigious shopping venues, is also just steps away. Plus, construction has started on a new three-story, 40,000-square-foot retail center on the northeast corner of the property opposite the Fashion Show Mall. The new retail center is scheduled to open in fall 2014.Perfect for swashbucklers and buccaneers -- or anyone interested in a fun and affordable Vegas visit -- Treasure Island has so many entertainment, dining, shopping and gaming options, along with plush accommodations, you'll think it's all been pillaged and plundered!-- By Renée LiButti

PostedApril 16, 2014
First ever review... We had a great time @ TI (treasure Island. Loved the location, & service. It looks a little dated (compared to the higher price hotels, but for the excellent rates, it can't be beat. Comfy bedding , Large bathroom, upscale amenities , we will definitely stay there again. BTW, it was our first time to Vegas.

Although it may seem preposterous, some hotels in Las Vegas are geared to kids -- like Circus Circus, which is located at the northern end of the Strip. Book a room here and the whole family will be able to embark on a flight of fancy.Start your adventure at The Adventuredome, a five-acre theme park situated beneath a climate-controlled dome covered with pink glass. It contains at least 25 unique rides. The brave at heart can hop on the Canyon Blaster, a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster. The younger set is sure to enjoy Miner Mike, a runaway coal train, or the Thunderbirds, a squadron of not-so-high-flying 1920s-style airplanes. Plus, several virtual reality film rides are broadcast in the FX Theatre, including "SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D" and "Happy Feet: Mumble's Wild Ride 4-D," for all ages. The Adventuredome has recently added a new roller coaster -- El Loco. After a 90-foot ascent, the 72-second ride offers negative G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists.Parents looking for more adult-oriented pastimes can play slots in the nearby Skyrise Casino or head downstairs to the main casino floor, where there is race and sports book, more than 40 table games (note: free lessons in poker, blackjack, roulette and craps are offered daily) and more than 1,500 of the latest slot and video poker machines.Ironically, situated above is the famed Circus Circus Midway, where you can win stuffed animals and other toys by trying your luck at one of more than 200 popular carnival games. In the center of all the action is the Midway Stage, home to free live circus acts featuring performers from around the world. Shows run every half hour from early afternoon until late at night.You'll actually encounter clownin' around everywhere on the property. Since opening in 1968, Circus Circus has presented roving clowns and other beloved circus acts not only on stages in the Midway and The Adventuredome, but also wandering the floor space throughout both facilities -- this includes the lobby, the shopping promenade and other gathering spots. Clowns are like ambassadors at Circus Circus. In addition to their merrymaking, they answer questions, give directions and make any waits in line pass by enjoyably.When it's time to eat, you'll find something for everyone at this resort -- from quick snacks to full-service restaurants and the massive Circus Buffet. The gourmet dining room, THE Steak House, has long been acclaimed for its perfectly prepared prime cuts of meat cooked on a mesquite charcoal broiler. The Garden Grill serves a menu of American favorites, and the Pizzeria is a whimsical spot for freshly baked pizza with an array of tempting toppings. Pick up a sweet treat at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, an overstuffed sandwich at the Westside Deli or a bagel and a cup of joe at Barista. And don't miss the most enchanting eatery on the premises -- a snack bar in the Midway designed to resemble a carousel. It rotates high above the casino floor -- and the gelato is simply divine!Rock 'n' roll legend Vince Neil has opened two party-oriented venues at Circus Circus. Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat-Drink-Party! has a mouth-watering menu with a selection of the Mötley Crüe front man's signature burgers and burritos. Vince Neil's Party Bus Bar, located just upstairs from the restaurant, features flair bartenders and party girls offering up shots and other creative cocktails. Rounding out the amenities at Circus Circus are pools, the Alexandra Noel Beauty Salon and shops that sell everything from designer fragrances to taffy and old-time photos. Want to tie the knot? Weddings are conducted in the Chapel of the Fountain, which has a romantic English garden setting.Circus Circus boasts several different kinds of accommodations. There are comfortable, traditional rooms along with 135 spacious suites in the West, Casino and Skyrise towers. Circus Circus Manor is a series of five three-story buildings that offer motor lodge-style rooms and parking. Plus, opening in late 2014, the RV Park at Circus Circus will have 170 spaces and feature options for grass, patios and outdoor furniture in addition to pool and laundry facilities.Clearly, the ultimate, affordable, family-style resort in Las Vegas is Circus Circus. Where else would you have easy access to a midway under a pink-and-white big top as well as a giant indoor theme park?-- By Renée LiButti

Blending glamour and modern luxury, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is, without a doubt, the most chic and stylish resort on the Strip. It boasts a guest experience that interlaces ultra comfortable accommodations with trendsetting restaurants and shops, hot music and nightspots, striking visual art and cool technology.Consisting of two elegant New York-style towers, its architecture provides a refreshing change from the city's many themed resortsWith eight dynamic columns wrapped in mirrors and video screens, the lobby even doubles as a trendy ultra lounge -- and the Vesper Bar, named for the fictional martini loved by secret agent James Bond, is just steps away. Once you enter The Cosmopolitan's vibrant world, you can gamble, shop, wine and dine, be entertained or simply relax – whatever you envision for your perfect vacation.Of course, the most important thing to hipsters is the nightlife -- and it's here in spades. Set beneath a stunning curtain of crystal beads, The Chandelier is the centerpiece featuring three stories of unique bar environments: a classic cocktail nook on top, a lounge setting in the middle and a high-energy social scene at the bottom.In addition, partiers will adore Marquee Nightclub, where DJs are always pumping today's top sounds. Surrounded by four-story LED screens, the dance floor will wow you. Plus, during the spring and summer months, guests can enjoy the Marquee Dayclub experience, which is filled with poolside debauchery. The Cosmopolitan also has a social club called Rose.Rabbit.Lie., which is part restaurant, part bar and part club. Gourmands are sure to savor the diverse dining opportunities helmed by culinary stars from around the world. Signature restaurants include STK, a flirty take on a steakhouse by chef Stephen Hopcraft, and Scarpetta, which serves a regional Italian menu evoking the simplicity of "cucina rustica" (a rustic kitchen) by chef Scott Conant. Eateries like Jaleo by food mastermind José Andrés and the Mediterranean-themed Estiatorio Milos by restaurateur Costas Spiliadis are changing the face of fine dining in Las Vegas. Plus, chef David Myers' modern French brasserie Comme Ça is très bien!On the casual end, several restaurants at The Cosmopolitan dish out simpler cuisine -- prepared with the freshest ingredients. Holsteins knows how to grill up great burgers, and the Wicked Spoon brunch/buffet specializes in a variety of American comfort foods. There's even a secret pizza window where you can grab a New York-style slice and a Coke on the run.In the evenings the resort plays host to some of the world’s top musicians. A stellar entertainment lineup can be found taking the stage inside The Chelsea (like Grammy Award-winning recording artist Bruno Mars, who performs there for select dates) or outside by the Boulevard Pool. Performances are often broadcast live to passersby on The Cosmopolitan's 65-foot-tall LED-display marquee. The funky lounges Book & Stage and Bond regularly host free concerts or live DJs as well.There is a collection of stores at The Cosmopolitan that creates an urban boutique shopping experience. From AllSaints Spitalfields and Stitched to the CRSVR Sneaker Boutique, you'll discover an array of exclusive apparel and other merchandise for men and women. And stop by P3 Studio, a glass-walled space that features contemporary artists from around the world who create interactive artwork as part of a residency programThe guest rooms at The Cosmopolitan offer unparalleled comfort, breathtaking views from oversized private terraces and thoughtful amenities, like a kitchenette with a microwave and a Sub-Zero minibar stocked with unexpected treats.The high-rise hotel also features an expansive casino, the mystical Sahra Spa & Hammam and a progressive arts program.With plenty of chances for fun and relaxation, as well as for indulging your palate, being pampered, partying and spotting stars, The Cosmopolitan is the place to be in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti
