The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is one of the city's most respected resorts offering a combination of elegance and impeccable service. Located on Paradise Road, just a block from the Strip, the property is also minutes from McCarran International Airport and steps from the Las Vegas Convention Center. There's even a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so guests will enjoy easy access to popular hotels and attractions on Las Vegas Boulevard.The Westgate Las Vegas has a storied history. It has played host to an all-star lineup of entertainers -- the most revered, of course, being Elvis Presley. Serving as his Las Vegas headquarters, the King performed here in an eight-year exclusive run selling out 837 consecutive shows and entertaining an estimated 2.5 million people. Liberace also used to draw big crowds in the main showroom with his flamboyant costumes, amazing piano playing and infectious fun.Today the theater still showcases great music with "Raiding the Rock Vault," which honors the greatest rock bands in history. Plus, the Shimmer Cabaret features a variety of performers and productions. Check out Trent Carlini, a well-regarded tribute artist who pays homage to the King of Rock 'n' Roll. The Las Vegas Tenors (closing Aug. 14, 2015) features three vocally versatile men who perform rock 'n' roll, R&B and much more. Situated off the main casino floor, the Tempo lounge is a stylish venue that serves classic cocktails...with a twist! It's also the perfect spot to gather for pre- and post- theater drinks or to dance to a mix of '70s, '80s and '90s hits in the late-night hours.When you're feeling hungry, the Westgate Las Vegas has several wonderful dining options. The gourmet Japanese restaurant Benihana presents exhibition-style cooking by master chefs on hibachi tables. Authentic Japanese sushi is served in Teru Sushi in Las Vegas, which is found in the same stunningly peaceful complex -- complete with waterfalls and a traditional koi pond -- that houses the Zen Bar and Lounge. The classic upscale restaurant TJ's Steakhouse straddles the sophisticated Plaza Bar. It's noted for its prime cuts and rich mahogany setting.  Vince Neil's Tatuado Restaurant & Cantina is a more lively spot to socialize over drinks (tequilas, beers and signature margaritas like the Smokin' Purple Rita) and indulge in Mexican appetizers. At The Buffet you can devour items from a spread of world cuisine for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. And Burger Bistro, the Paradise Café, Fortuna coffee and wine bar, and the food court are all perfect whenever you desire a quick bite.In addition, the Westgate Las Vegas is beloved among race and sports bettors, thanks to the illustrious SuperBook. This huge facility is THE place to watch a big game. With more than 350 seats, 28 giant screens and one massive 15-by-20-foot monitor, you won't miss a moment of the action. Special niche areas, like The Ultimate Fan Cave, are packed with armchairs. Patrons can always grab a drink at the Eighth Pole Bar or a sandwich at the SuperBook Deli.Other amenities at the Westgate Las Vegas include a business center, a state-of-the-art cardio room, the Regis Signature Salon, tennis courts, a car rental agency, concierge services and more. There are gift, apparel and sundries shops. Drift away in bliss with one of many pampering services at The Spa. Or spend the day lounging in the sun by the third-floor pool, complete with 18 cabanas, a 25-seat Jacuzzi and the Cabana Bar. During the summer months, poolside happy hours are held in the early evenings with live entertainment.The Westgate Las Vegas offers 3,000 well-appointed and spacious rooms, along with luxury suites and villas. All of them are equipped with wired and wireless internet access. Most boast panoramic views of the Las Vegas skyline or the surrounding valley and mountains. Among the standard amenities are ultra-soft bedding, a 37-inch plasma TV and an in-room safe. You can opt to stay in one of the Resorts Club rooms for an upgraded level of service and prestige. Among the luxuries are a plush spa robe, silky linens and access to the Resorts Club lounge on the 24th floor, where you'll receive complimentary breakfasts, fresh-baked cookies and snacks as well as be treated to evening wine and cheese receptions.Convention facilities are also top-notch at the Westgate Las Vegas. Along with the Paradise Event Center, providing 70,000 square feet of space, there is a stunning 35,000-square-foot ballroom and nearly 10,000 square feet of combined meeting space. Plus,couples who are interested in tying the knot will find a lovely and intimate wedding chapel, Chapelle de l'Amour, at the property.Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Westgate Las Vegas is an ideal hotel that stands as a beacon of history, elegance and service in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti

$3.00 to use the safe is a rediculous!
PostedJune 13, 2014
I enjoyed my stay but I think the use of the safe should be no charge. After all they charge $15.00 a days for WIFI.

The Quad Resort & Casino is being transformed into The LINQ Hotel & Casino. All of the rooms as well as the pool deck, spa and retail area are being renovated. Construction has already begun. The name change will be official on Oct. 30, 2014, with construction due to be completed by spring 2015. The resort will remain open throughout construction.If you're looking for a Vegas resort with a prime location at the center of the Strip and very affordable prices, a good place to keep at the top of your mind is The Quad Resort & Casino. Much of The Quad's interior and exterior have been refurbished. Among the new elements are a renovated porte cochere, casino floor and Catalyst Bar. The Quad is also connected to The LINQ, an outdoor entertainment, shopping and dining district that houses the High Roller observation wheel. O'Sheas Casino has debuted as well -- with three bars, 11 table games, 15 video poker machines and six beer pong tables. Caesars Entertainment has announced that The Quad will be rebranded as The LINQ Hotel & Casino on Oct. 30, 2014. As part of a $223 million renovation project, the property's 2,256 rooms and suites will be remodeled to feature contemporary decor elements as well as pillow-top mattresses, 47-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations with speakers and rain shower heads. In addition, a new pool area (featuring both a standard hotel pool and a dayclub experience), a new lobby bar, a new spa and fitness center, and the new Vortex Roof Deck, are under construction and will debut in spring 2015.The Quad is an always-bustling, mid-sized property situated within walking distance from several of the city's most famous resorts -- including Caesars Palace, The Mirage, Flamingo, Bally's and Harrah's.The Quad also boasts a Las Vegas Monorail stop, which means you'll have easy access to most of the hotels up and down South Las Vegas Boulevard.Catering to visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, The Quad is not a stuffy, elite-style resort.The amenities are spread throughout several floors. The ground floor houses the action-packed casino. It tends to be crowded around the clock. One of focal points in the casino is the Dealertainers pit. You can sit down at blackjack tables where celebrity impersonators dressed as Beyoncé, Elvis, Pink and many more deal the cards. Often, they have to excuse themselves to belt out one of their character's hits from the elevated stage.Take the escalator to the second floor and you'll discover additional entertainment options. Jeff Civillico does comedy juggling and other stunts in the afternoon. You can also see the drag extravaganza "Divas Las Vegas" starring Frank Marino in the evening. Or Recycled Percussion, a group that pounds away on everything from buckets and trash cans to ladders and power tools, also perform in a rock 'n' roll-oriented production in the evening.The place to drink at the resort is Fat Tuesday, where you can order a variety of frozen daiquiris, perfect to cool you down during the hot summer months. Beers and cocktails of all kinds are available in the casino at the Catalyst Bar. TAG Lounge & Bar also offers more than 300 bottled, can and large-format brews from the U.S. and around the world -- you can even serve yourself at pour-your-own-draft tables. If history is more your thing, check out The Auto Collections. More than 250 classic or historically significant vehicles are being displayed on the fifth floor of the hotel's self-parking garage -- some of which are for sale.?The Quad is home to several great dining options. Chef Guy Fieri, of Food Network's top-rated show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," has opened his first Las Vegas restaurant -- called Guy Fieri's Kitchen & Bar -- at the north entrance of the resort. South-of-the-border cuisine along with an array of margaritas and a mechanical bull are offered at Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar at the south end of the property. The Quad also boasts has a Hash House A Go Go. The chain restaurant is known for its delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner comfort foods -- which come in oversized portions. Watch the big games on one of the 12 large screens in the spacious sports book on the third floor. Horse racing fans will be impressed by the stadium-style seating, complete with 230 individual monitors.Work up a sweat in the fitness center. You can get a manicure in The Salon at The Quad, but the spa is currently closed for renovation.Clean and comfortable, The Quad's towers feature a variety of accommodations ranging from classic rooms with all the basics to deluxe "luv tub" rooms that have spa tubs thrown into the mix. Plus, pet-loving guests are welcome to bring their four-legged friends (weighing less than 50 pounds) to lodge in the special PetStay rooms.For those wanting to tie the knot, the Silver Sky Chapel features two fine venues: the signature Skyline Chapel and the Southwestern Chapel with a desert motif. The resort has a stretch of souvenir stores located near the room elevators as well. Shops include Amparo, Whiskey Run, Gifts to Go and Relaxation Palace.The Quad is a resort offering value-oriented accommodations. Whether you are coming to party with a group of friends, bringing your family for a vacation or attending a conference, the hotel is sure to suit you.-- By Renée LiButtiNOTE: Due to construction at The Quad, as it is being transformed into The LINQ Hotel & Casino, guests may may encounter temporary inconveniences, construction walls and some noise during daytime hours. The Quad's spa and pool are currently closed for remodeling. Guests can use the Beach Club pool at Flamingo Las Vegas or the pools at Paris Las Vegas and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Experience a vibrant, New Orleans-themed hotel just a few blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip on Tropicana Avenue. The Orleans, a locals-oriented resort, may be far from the French Quarter, but it's not without attractions that bring to mind the Big Easy.For instance, the 140-seat Bourbon Street Lounge -- marked by a giant upside down piano that hangs from the ceiling -- showcases live entertainment. Listen to bands and dance here nightly, just like you would in the world's music capital. Amid the floor-to-ceiling murals that depict idyllic riverboat scenes at Canal Street, eat gourmet delights (like Louisiana crab cakes) that you'd find in New Orleans. Get freshly shucked oysters and clams served with authentic Creole flair at Big Al's Oyster Bar. And drink classic cocktails to your heart's content at the Crawfish Bar, Mardi Gras Bar and Alligator Bar -- all of which boast a lively atmosphere that will transport you to the French Quarter's rollicking streets.There are other forms of entertainment, good food and recreation at The Orleans as well.The resort is home to the Orleans Arena. Hosting about 200 events a year, you'll discover top concerts, sporting events (including college basketball tournaments) and family fun (like Disney on Ice) at this huge venue.The Orleans Showroom, an 850-seat theater, also brings a stellar lineup of headlining musicians and comedians to town. Plus, lounge acts accompany the fine spirits and great beer poured in Brendan's Irish Pub.In addition to live entertainment, guests can amuse themselves at the resort's 70-lane bowling center or catch a flick in the 18-screen Century Orleans cinema. Buzz'n Brushes offers a creative experience for aspiring artists and the not-so-artistic who are just looking for a good time. Not only will you learn the basics of acrylic painting during one of their classes, but you'll also enjoy wine, cheese, socializing, listening to music and dancing to tunes like "Y.M.C.A."There are still more ways to unwind at The Orleans. Young kids (ages 3 - 12) will discover adventure and activities of all kinds at Kids Tyme. The professionally supervised facility offers everything from a giant jungle gym and imaginative crafts to a movie room and PlayStation/Nintendo Wii gaming systems. The Time Out Arcade is designed for teens. Adults will follow their bliss at the Spa Orleans, where you can be pampered by an array of soothing massages, body wraps and facials. While women get dolled up in the beauty salon, men will appreciate a haircut and good old-fashioned straight razor shave in the barber shop.For sun lovers of all ages, The Orleans has an Olympic-sized pool as well as a wading pool and large hot tub. Tucked in a central courtyard that's lushly landscaped, you'll feel well removed from all things urban, especially if you reserve one of the five cabanas where you and your party can soak up some rays in comfort.The resort's fitness center -- with a mix of cardio and muscle-building equipment -- overlooks the pool area, creating a truly pleasant atmosphere for a workout as well as allowing easy access to cool off with a dip after you work up a sweat.The Orleans is packed with good eats spanning many cultures. Costa Cantina serves the spicy cuisine of Mexico. Be sure to try the tacos de pescado and chicken Azteca. Koji features an exceptional dining environment merging elements of a sushi bar and Chinese bistro. Meat lovers will want to walk upstairs to the second-story Prime Rib Loft. Although this restaurant has a stunning view over the casino floor as well as colorful murals of jazz performers, nothing beats its delectable cuts of prime rib.For a quick and casual meal, you can head to T.G.I. Friday's, the 24-hour Courtyard Café or the food court (home of Fuddruckers, Sbarro, Subway and Baskin-Robbins). Those who really want to binge should check out the French Market Buffet, where you can savor Italian, Mongolian, barbecue, American, seafood, Mexican and Chinese cooking, along with items from an enormous dessert bar.Like the city, the casino floor at The Orleans is always bustling. Try your luck on more than 2,600 slot, video poker and video keno machines or sit down at one of the numerous table games. There's also a 19-table nonsmoking poker room that's open 24 hours. Packed with giant high-resolution TV screens, the 125-seat race and sports book is the perfect place to watch the big game.If you're able to tear yourself away from all the excitement in the casino, you'll be more than comfortable in The Orleans' 1,885 beautifully appointed rooms. Available with one king or two queen beds, the amenities include a flat-screen TV, a desk and a spacious sitting area with a plush sofa and armchair.Visitors who don't have a car can take advantage of free shuttle service from The Orleans to its sister property, the Gold Coast, as well as to the Las Vegas Strip.Although it's not in New Orleans, the resort's exterior was designed to resemble the French Quarter, and inside the atmosphere oozes hospitality just like it does in the South. An affordable place to stay, The Orleans is perfectly positioned near the heart of the action in Vegas -- and it offers all kinds of action under its own roof.--By Renée LiButti

Experience the fun and excitement of Brazil at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Located just minutes west of the famed Las Vegas Strip, on Flamingo Road, it's a perfect location if you want to be close to all the action and major attractions in Las Vegas. Plus, the Rio itself comes packed with shops, theaters, bars and restaurants.The hotel has a vibrant atmosphere with brightly colored carpeting, signage and décor that will make it seem as if you've arrived in the middle Carnival season. The Rio is known for hosting the main event in the prestigious World Series of Poker annually. Thus, gaming takes precedence on the sprawling casino floor, which has 1,200 slot machines and 80 different table games.The two top crowd-pleasers at the resort, however, are the buffets. The Carnival World Buffet has been winning awards and acclaim since the Rio opened in 1990. This massive spread features more than 300 dishes prepared fresh daily. And seafood lovers are sure to enjoy the catch at the Village Seafood Buffet. Imagine loading your plate with unlimited lobster, crab legs, shrimp, sushi and more! Both of these buffets are usually packed with patrons, but don't lose heart if you see a line. Service is quick as well as friendly, so you'll be surprised at how short the wait time really is.Fine meals can be had at the Rio as well. Tough, tattooed Philadelphia chef Steve Martorano is at the helm of Martorano's, where rich, Italian-American favorites are served in excess. Or indulge in a succulent steak and one of the most striking views of Las Vegas at VooDoo Steak and Rooftop Nightclub, situated on the 50th and 51st floors of the resort's Masquerade Tower. Other delights include the dry-aged Angus beef at the All-American Bar & Grille, the authentic Vietnamese cuisine at Pho Da Nang, the fresh oysters at Buzio's Seafood Restaurant and the one-of-a-kind dim sum menu at KJ Dim Sum & Seafood Chinese Restaurant. Hash House A Go Go has creatively prepared, oversized portions -- which include everything from breakfast and brunch to dinner items. You can grab a quick meal at the BK Whopper Bar or the Sports Deli, which situated near the six giant screens in the busy race and sports book.In addition, the entertainment alternatives are excellent. Penn & Teller, the quirky and frequently gruesome magic duo, have their own theater at the Rio, as do the hunky Chippendales dancers. The Crown Theater hosts an array of acts, including "MJ Live," a tribute to Michael Jackson starring impersonator Michael Firestone, and The Rat Pack Is Back, which brings the sounds of the legendary performers back to life. The seductive topless revue "X Rocks" showcases sexy choreography set to heart-pounding rock songs.For a spirited evening, swing by the sexy Flirt Lounge in the lobby of the Chippendales Theatre or the high-tech I-Bar, where you can order drinks from a touch-screen computer built into your tabletop.A thrilling zip ride, the VooDoo Zip Line adds excitement to any visit. Guests can to soar for more than 800 feet from the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub in the hotel's Masquerade Tower to the Ipanema Tower. The 70-second journey boasts stunning 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Strip.Accommodations at the Rio range from the spacious 600-square-foot standard suites to the opulent, one-bedroom Masquerade suites, boasting 1,600 square feet and a 180-degree view of the city. All of the suites include stylish furnishings, a large flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board, and a complimentary in-room safe.For sun and relaxation, spend an afternoon at the pool complex with golden sand areas and cascading waterfalls. Plenty of shops -- including The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room, Fashion 101 and a Harley-Davidson store -- are located throughout the premises. Pampering treatments are offered at the Rio Spa & Salon to refresh your mind and body. And the resort provides shuttle service to and from Harrah's.An eye-popping place to stay, guests at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino will enjoy superior service, comfort and value just a short distance from the Strip.-- By Renée LiButti
