Treasure Island - Las Vegas, Nevada

I have yet to be disappointed with my hotel choices in Vegas and Treasure Island is no exception!  This 4 diamond hotel sits at one end of the Vegas strip.  I consider this "the end" of the strip because after that, all the famous hotels sort of stop and there is just a nice shopping mall, and much farther down the road the Stratosphere, which is more like a drive rather than a walk away. 

What's not to love about Treasure Island?  At first glance you might think this Pirate Ship themed hotel is for kids - well try again!  A grand Casino fills the lobby along with a great Mexican Restaurant (Islas) that served yummy appetizers (which was my dinner).  Sit at the bar, stick a $20 in the game machine while you eat/drink and they'll give you those drinks FREE! Way better than the free drinks in the Casinos. 

Our room was very clean, comfortable and had a floor to ceiling view of the Vegas strip.  The beds were plush, which is important to this mom who has a Tempur-Pedic at home I can't live without.  A flat screen hung on the wall, while my husband and I fought over the one lounger chair in the room every night.  To top it off the rates were great in February and the weather was just right!  

If your in Vegas for the nightlife (which we're not) they have what I hear is a great nightclub "Christian Audigier's" and you get in FREE while staying at Treasure Island (which is normally a  $30 cover).  Unfortunately some of that "night life" spills over to the pool area and I wasn't too excited about all the beer bottles and drinks that surrounded the edge of the cloudy watered pool.  But luckily I was there to relax and not swim. 

There is a Pirate Show on the outdoor ship every evening in front of the Hotel but I can't say whether it's worth a watch or not because I've missed it every time and the one time we planned for it, it was canceled due to high winds.  Although we did however catch a wedding on the Ship, which was interesting and a unique way to tie the knot.  Much better than a drive-thru!

So if your headed to the City of Sin, I definitely recommend Treasure Island.  Although check back later this week to see my NYNY review, which I'd have to say has a few more perks that draws me to the other end of the strip!
