I have visited Las Vegas many times and have previously stayed at the Excaliber and the MGM Grand. When you stay at a casino hotel, it can get on your nerves...the long walk to and from your room, walking thru a smoky casino, very few amenities in your room, etc. I wanted a change and the Grand Vacations Club was perfect.
We booked a king-size suite. The kitchen was perfect, even a dishwasher! There was a small washer-dryer unit in the closet. The kitchen had everything we needed to make small meals and breakfast and the fridge was full-sized. Our son slept on the sofa bed in the front room and we slept in the bedroom. The bath included a large jacuzzi tub.
The room was extremely quiet - so much nicer than having to deal with the partying that happens when you sleep "on the strip".
The pool and jacuzzi were clean and heated and nobody was around when we used them. It was wonderful! The MGM closes down their pool during the winter months as do many of the Strip hotels.
There was a small grocery in the hotel, but I drove a few blocks to a market and stocked up on food.
The new monorail is within walking distance of the hotel, in the back of the parking lot...an easy way to get to any of the strip casinos.
The hotel also had a concierge in the lobby. She was awesome. She got us great seats for Spamalot, even though it was very short notice.
All of the staff was extremely kind, helpful, and accommodating. I can't say enough nice things about them.
Many of the hotels on the strip have shabby rooms and are extremely dirty...this is because many of the visitors are partying and are rough on the rooms. At this hotel, everything was in good order, clean, and beautiful.
There also was a lounge with a big-screen TV and a billiards table. Lots of room to play games, if you wanted. I saw many families hanging out there during the day, but it was never crowded or annoyingly loud.
Our room even came with a DVD player so our son could watch movies. This is one of the few hotels where we have stayed with that amenity.
I also work on the road, so I was able to access the wireless internet from my room on my laptop with no problem. The internet service is FREE - included in the room charge...the casino hotels charge extra for that.
Other than the small market and your room, there is no place to eat at the hotel...however, you can walk to the Hilton which is right next door or eat on the strip. We ate most of our meals on the strip while we visited the various attractions, but it was nice to be able to eat breakfast in our room and also have snacks when we got back in the evening.
Even better, the price was less than half what the casino hotels charge...let's see: better service, more amenities, cleaner rooms, and a better price (about $100/nite vs. $250/nite)...sounds like a no brainer to me. This will be my first choice whenever I visit Vegas from now on.
