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.

PostedJune 5, 2014
We enjoyed our stay, had a lovely view of the strip; however, were woken up at 7:30 am with someone hammering on our head (apparently they were doing construction) right above us. Had to move rooms at 9:00 am and weren't compensated anything until I asked to be compensated and then she reluctantly gave us one free hotel fee ($28). Front desk not very friendly when we checked in, I booked under both my husband and my name and they only reserved it in my husband's name and wouldn't let me check-in after I stood in line while he waited in the rental car outside the front door. I had his ID and they said they had to see him. I had to go outside and sit in the rental car while he went back in. Never had this problem with any other hotel I've ever checked into from here to Dubai. Bit of a nuisance. They search your bag before you go to the pool after 10:00 am and take every bit of food and drink you have or you have to take it all back to the room. I would understand that if they didn't allow alcohol, etc to avoid rowdy parties at the pool; however, they sell tons of alcohol at the pool and there was no avoiding the drunks, so just another way to price gouge you at $18 per drink poolside.
The cleaning staff were very pleasant and the room was pretty clean, aside from gum stuck to the carpet and something red splashed all over the wall by the window, which we cleaned off. Also, careful what you say as we clearly heard the conversation the people next door had, good thing it was a nice conversation :)

construction at Treasure Island

we are coming to Las Vegas in June. We are going to book our stay at Treasure Island. I wanted to know if construction would be finished by then. Also is pirate show cancelled for ever
we had a hammer pounding our head at 7:30 am on the 4th morning and were not told of any construction. Had to move rooms at 9:00 am. There is construction going on around the hotel. The front desk was not very friendly and wouldn't compensate us until I asked for compensation, which was only one day's hotel fee ($28). Not impressed with that. I think pirate show cancelled forever, certainly high and dry when we were there.
