The architecturally-dynamic M Resort is a gem on the Las Vegas Strip about 10 miles south of Mandalay Bay with unparalleled amenities, service and quality. Sitting on 90 acres of land at an elevation 400 feet higher than any other Strip hotel-casino, M Resort was created for Las Vegas residents by a native of the city, Anthony A. Marnell III. But with unique offerings like a wine cellar and unparalleled views of the valley, this stunning glass-framed hotel is a destination for both locals and Vegas visitors.Marnell designed and hand picked just about all the intricate touches at M Resort, right down the china used in many of the restaurants. His theory is that if you're putting your name on something, you don't want to leave anything to chance.This personal attention is evident in all areas of M Resort, from the hundreds of fresh white Calla lilies in the lobby to M's design, which allows just about every venue to overlook the stunning Villaggio Del Sole Pool and Entertainment Piazza. Even M Resort's meeting and banquet space has a roomy outdoor terrace above the pool, while the state-of-the-art fitness center offers prime views through floor-to-ceiling windows.Standard rooms are upscale but casual with dark tones and custom furniture, modern sound systems, electronic "do not disturb" signs and views of either the valley or mountains. Upon entering the room, guests can place their key card in a designated holder on the wall, which not only keeps it safe, but also turns on the room lights. Remove your key when leaving, and lights will turn off 30 seconds later, helping to conserve energy if you forget to turn out the lights. There are a few stellar restaurant options for guests. Anthony's Steakhouse serves steak and ocean cuisine. Try a decadent Imperial Burger in Anthony's Gourmet Burgers & Brews. Marinelli's Pasta Bar offers a variety of small-plate Italian dishes. And buffet-in-the-round Studio B serves house beer and wine as part of its overall price. Attached is the Studio B show kitchen for private cooking demonstrations, which are then showcased on 117 screens within the buffet.Chef Seonkyoung Longest, the winner of Food Network's "Restaurant Express," has opened an eatery called Jayde Fuzion that showcases her contemporary Asian sharing dishes. Menu items combine Japanese, Chinese and Korean flavors. There is also an interactive sushi bar.Listings of past Super Bowl point spreads and MVPs decorate the walls of Vig Deli, which offers classic junk food like wings and pizza, perfect for those watching a game in the attached race and sports book. At 92,000 square feet, the casino also includes close to 1,847 video and slot machines, 64 table games and a gorgeous high limit lounge with view. Those looking for something stiffer than soda have plenty of options including the 32° Draft Bar, the M Bar and the Ravello Lounge on the casino level and a wine cellar/tasting room with self-serve wine dispensers, Hostile Grape Wine Cellar, below.   The therapeutic Spa Mio is an oasis of relaxation with 16 treatment rooms, a sauna and a steam room. Even the attached salon offers shampoo stations with electronically operated massage chairs.One of the many ways M Resort caters to locals is by offering several different property entrances with nearby parking. Those stopping by to use the spa can park and enter close to the spa. Those interested in placing a bet can park and enter by the race and sports book. There is also a gas station on the property. -- Staff Report

a wine bar to die for.
great food anywhere.
pastries in the shop named for original owner's daughter with free Wi-Fi

Stay in the California Hotel & Casino, an aloha-themed downtown Las Vegas resort situated near Fremont Street and connected to Main Street Station via the Bridge Avenue walkway. Its convenient location places you about a block away from the pulsing heart of all the action. You can stroll to attractions, including Fremont Street Experience and The Mob Museum, or take a short ride over to the Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North and The Smith Center, a performing arts theater.Because of its luau spirit, a good many of the guests tend to be from Hawaii, but everyone will feel right at home here. Staff members don Hawaiian shirts, and island hospitality is ever present.The California features five eateries offering everything from fast food to fine dining. Do you have an appetite for tender steaks and mouth-watering scampi? If so, the Redwood Bar & Grill has a table for you in its elegant, Old Vegas-style dining room. For a unique fusion of seafood and Italian cuisine, head over to the Pasta Pirate, where the menu features homemade pastas as well as lobster, fish and crab legs. There's no better place to grab a variety of home-cooked dishes 24 hours a day than the Market Street Cafe. You'll often find a line, thanks to specials like the $5.95 Luau Breakfast and $8.95 Cal Prime Rib. And you can feast on the flavors of Hawaii at Aloha Specialties or grab a burger, fries and other quick bites at the California Club snack bar.  The California's bars are just as wonderful as its restaurants. Join the crowds in two vibrant watering holes on the main level -- the easygoing San Francisco Pub and the elegant Main Street Bar. Or enjoy catching up on the day's games at Dave's Bar, located next to Cal's Sports Book on the second floor.  Test your luck in the 36,000-square-foot casino, where you'll discover more than 1,100 slot and video poker machines and 28 different table games. For a bit of luck, swing past the California's giant Buddha statue, placed just off the lobby near the elevators, and give its belly a rub!A small shopping promenade and arcade are also housed at the resort. Complimentary shuttles run throughout the day to other Boyd Gaming properties, including Sam's Town on Boulder Highway.And there's a wonderful rooftop pool that guests can lounge around and take in the breathtaking views of downtown Las Vegas and the surrounding mountains.-- By Renée LiButti
