I booked the Westin Las Vegas Casino and Spa Hotel for $55.00 on a BRG (Best Rate Guarantee) rate. There was a resort fee for $19.95+tax, but it is waived for Starwood Platinum guests. When I’m in Las Vegas, I often stay at this hotel because of the close vicinity to the Las Vegas Strip and you can earn stay/night credit with Starwood. I have stayed at the Westin Las Vegas (formerly Westin Casuarina) at least 13 times and have only gotten a handful of suite upgrades. Don’t book this hotel if you’re hoping for a suite upgrade because there are only a handful of standard suites.
I walked from the Tropicana Hotel to the Westin and it only took 15 minutes which, as I can remember, is way less than how much I had to walk when I was at the คาสิโนออนไลน์ casino. Las Vegas cab rides are expensive and luckily I only had carry-on luggage. The hotel was proactive enough to call me a few days prior to arrival and asked if I needed anything. I asked for an earlier check-in (11am) and it was granted.
To get to the front desk, you must go through the casino floor.
There are two separate check-in areas: one for elites and one for non-elites.
I saw my favorite front desk agent, Matt and he welcomed me back to the hotel. He advised me that they were running a promotion for Platinum guests at the hotel and gave me a $25 free slot play voucher. You can also use the $25 as a match-play for table games.
I asked Matt to waive the resort fee and he promptly obliged as usual. I chose 500 Starpoints as my Platinum amenity. He told me there was the usual happy hour from 5:30pm – 6:30pm at the lobby bar for guests. Basically it’s free beer, wine, and small snacks like chips and salsa. I asked if there were any suite upgrades, but he informed me it was all sold out. I was pre-assigned a deluxe city view room with two queen beds.
The deluxe room is basically a clean room with your usual Westin amenities. You wouldn’t think you’re in Las Vegas since this hotel is mainly dubbed as a business hotel.
The bathroom was small, but functional and adequate with plenty of washcloths, hand towels, and bath towels.
The best part about this room was the view of the Las Vegas Strip. It’s not the best view, but it’s better than nothing.
The one thing I like about this hotel is the Sports book. It’s never crowded and they even have an automated machine.
The Wi-Fi speeds were fast and I didn’t get a chance to try the breakfast since I had an early flight the next morning. If you do choose breakfast as your amenity, it’s breakfast at Suede restaurant. I would highly recommend this hotel if you’re a die-hard Starwood fan and don’t mind the short 8 minute walk to the Strip.
