Rated 4 out of 5 by 101Dave A Very Good Just Off the Strip Hotel
This hotel was exactly what I was looking for. Staying near the strip for non-strip prices. The location is walking distance to some key hotels. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the Starbucks in the hotel is a plus for me. A lot of air crew stay here, and I can see why because it's easy to get to the airport. The pool is nice, but it should have been bigger. Overall the hotel worked out great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JSeng Disapointed Platinum Member
I practically lived in a Westin for 6 months and therefore expected wonderful customer service like I have received in the past. I was sorely disappointed. We arrived early (noon) and was told the room wasn't ready. They gave us water and we sat at the bar. 2 hours later I checked the front desk to see on the status of the room and was asked to get my ID, which I was a little annoyed since I was only checking on status. When he did check, he excused himself to the backroom for 10 minutes and when he returned told me that he couldn't reach housekeeping. He said he would call me when the room was ready. I was not reached until after 4pm and then was told the TV wasn't working and that someone would be there to look at it. Great, so after waiting for over 4 hours, I have to wait for someone to fix something in the room. Later that day I asked for a late check out (1pm) and was told that I could get a late check out if I changed rooms because they needed the suites for Platinum members. Maybe I'm missing something but I couldn't check in until after 4pm, so how is it that I can't get a later check out? does it really take 5 hours to clean a room? I was very disappointed with my stay and was happy to be moving to stay at another hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PlymouthRocks Enjoyed our stay
We got in very late, and were able to check in quickly. Our city view room was very comfortable and clean. We LOVED our heavenly bed. The hotel is in a great location, easy to get around the Las Vegas strip. I enjoyed a manicure at the spa, and had two meals at the restaurant while I was there that were excellent. The pool was a little small, but still very nice and the bartender who was working at the pool bar was great and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.

Average hotel, close to strip and easy to get to and from. Hotel book says they have a $8 shuttle service to the airport which they do not and was told their books have just not yet been updated! Also their is supposed to be a ipod dock station which was missing and I called twice with no luck and said I was first on the list. However I was checked into the hotel early enough that one could have located one for me in part of the 4 nights I stayed there. In the end I was credited but stayed with no tunes....

Rated 1 out of 5 by shazza Miss spent loyalty
i am sorry that I showed my loyalty to the star wood brand in Vegas. Against my better judgement I booked this hotel because I did not believe that based on my experience a Starwood experience could be this poor. We are platinum members and travel frequently so I don't believe I am inexperienced in my judgement . This hotel is old and out dated but that can be forgiven if service and amenities are up to scratch . For instance we have been here two days and our mini bar is completely empty despite the fact we have queried this with reception. The Internet is so poor it is beyond frustrating. The pool area has 5 umbrellas in the entire area in temps of 39c . There are several shaded cabanas that are closed off and are only available if you pay . Room maids woke us
at 8.30 am to do something ( I didn't answer the door ) At breakfast we ordered cappuccinos and the server informed us they would get these from Starbucks (next-door) but neglected to tell us the price would be hiked up $7.00 each for a regular size! The continental breakfast provided as a SPG member is reminiscent of airline standard.
This hotel is an embarrassment to an otherwise outstanding brand . Be warned you can get similar rates on the strip in modern 4 &5star hotels.

When I checked into the hotel on Monday night, there were no bathroom amenities in the room - no soap, shampoo or conditioner. Thursday I left the room at 6 AM and returned after 9 PM and no maid service had come by.

Always stay here in Vegas, but have noticed strict new rule changes with employees at the bar with comp drinks and video poker, they appear they don't like having to follow but do, seems like Big Brother is cracking whip. Regardless the staff is amazing and try to bend over backwards for the customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mike09898 Decent Hotel , Awful Management
Hotel is OK , but beware that all the flight crews use this hotel so they are coming in out of their rooms at all hours. Management is truly awful. They never acknowledge your status and always say the hotel is full but then will check in flight crews and non status customers after you when they told you they have no rooms. When you voice your concerns , they say they care but don't do anything about it. Stay here if you are super concerned about maintaining status or want the points, otherwise stay somewhere where customer service actually exists.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TeresaR79 Great place to stay just off the strip
I thought this Westin was in the perfect location for those that want to be close to the action but not quite IN the craziness of the strip. It's about a half block from Caesar's and the Bellagio, which are basically the dead center of the strip.
The hotel itself is VERY slightly below normal Westin standards, but that was countered by the Starbucks in the lobby, a great casino on the first floor, a spa, and the usual fantastic Westin service. The casino is small, but after wandering through countless overpacked ones on the strip, it was my favorite in Vegas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by David35209 Needs improvement
Hall door would not latch on it's own. Had to push very hard to get it to close. On second night, we returned almost 7pm after being gone all day and found door cracked. Just pushed door open without using key.
1st day, there was no regular coffee in room.
2nd day, they removed the opened shampoo bottle but did not replace it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kenny16 Starwood slipping
This hotel cost 12,000 points, which equals nearly $500/night. The pool is a joke, plus on this occasion, we had the unfortunate experience of having O'Shea's blown up at 2-3 AM(yes, folks, in the morning). Helicopters hovering outside the room for an hour, then the big explosion. No one mentioned this would happen--pretty sad. I had driven from Phoenix, and had a 350 mile drive the next day, to Reno, which was very difficult after the major sleep interruption.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Aroo Hotel did not meet Westin standards
Very disappointed in the hotel. We always stay at Westins whenever possible and are always pleased. This location however was less than satisfactory. Lobby was not welcoming, ventilation system was bad, room temperatures hard to control. Location was in a marginal area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bella07 Relaxed and Convenient
My wife and I had an outstanding vacation in Vegas using the Westin as our base. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were outstanding. Lots has been written about the location, and we found it perfect. A block and a half walk to the strip meant we had easy access to the life of Vegas, but without the commotion, crowds and noise of the strip hotels. This not an over the top theme casino hotel, so if that is what you are looking for it might not meet expectations, but for a relaxed, clean home base in Vegas ... excellent

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elisa A Nice Hotel Overall
I stayed here one week for business and found this to be a nice, clean hotel at a good value. The rooms are fairly modern with a flat screen televsion and a large desk which provides ample work space. I liked the fact that the pool area, although compact, is open late. I had been at a different hotel chain the prior week, and could never use the pool because it closed at 6pm every day. I also utilized the fitness area which I thought was plenty adequate with modern equipment. The only downside to the fitness room is that it was quite warm inside, and I noticed that the doors were occasionally propped open to allow airflow, so perhaps there was an A/C problem the week I was there. I loved the "green" option allowing me to forego housekeeping and earn extra Starwood points instead. I wish some of the other hotel chains would follow suit on this wonderful idea. Overall, this was a good hotel and I would come back again without hesitiation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Manju Great hotel & location!
My 7 year old son and I were in Vegas in March 2012 for the Monster Truck World Finals. We stayed at this hotel from Thursday - Monday. From the time we arrived and were greeted at the front door we were treated like valued guests the entire trip. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located only about a block off the strip so it was perfect for us. It is only a couple minute walk to heart of the strip. I liked this because we were away from the strip but could be there in just a couple minutes. The hotel room was very clean and up to date. The beds are very comfortable. We did not use many of the hotels amenities but there are certainly plenty of them. We will be making this an annual trip and plan on this being our hotel each year!

Great location quiet and away from the main stream of Vegas. Or a 10 minute walk to the middle of the strip or a cab ride away from any hotel you want to go to!. Staff was great made dinner reservations and arranged cabto the other Casinos. Loved the fact that it was smoke free !

I have stayed in this hotel several times, and consistently there isn't enough water in the morning to shower which is a HUGE problem.
Frequently one must wait until the water pressure comes back, once the rest of the guest have taken their showers.
staff members are indiferent about this issue.
I think my last time staying here has come

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMONEYMANG Just what I expected and more
I had planned a trip to Las Vegas for one night only and needed a good place to crash and The Westin in Las Vegas was a perfect fit. Not only did I get a good rate but it was a "Westin" and I experienced exactly what I have come to expect from visiting a Westin hotel. I would definitely reccomend this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BarbS This hotel was disappointing
This hotel was disappointing. I am a Platinum Starwoods member, and stayed for points. I don't know if that impacted the room I was given, but the safe in the room didn't work, the bathtub safety surface was sticky and the room did not seem as clean as I am used to from a Starwoods hotel. I was at a local conference, and the location was fine. I did not use any of the restaurants or facilities at the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calgary99 Westin is great place - ignore negative comments
we stayed there with my mother in law who is 88. My kids wanted us to stay in the big name strip hotels. I am glad we stayed at the Westin. Being a smaller hotel was great in getting quick access to parkade as we drove to the major hotels and shows (parking is free at the other hotels but we used valet parking for $5) which is a lot easier than walking all over. The staff are very good. The buffet breakfast was great. Overall very good value. The Westin beds are always great and can be counted on for a good sleep. One teeny item is they need to shampoo the hallway carpets more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BarryNY Dont let the negative past reviews fool you!
The Westin represented well as Starwood usually does. I was very apprehensive after I read the past reviews and I just took the chance. I'm glad I did. The site was clean, hospitable, smelled well, with the comforts of a friendly staff. The staff is very courteous and professional. They are the added touch to your stay. When your tired of the busy and hectic strip let the Westin relax your senses. The benefits of your own casino next to the bar is a plus. The view from the city side is worth the upgrade. I will stay here anytime I'm in Vegas. One concern is the suede restaurant is a bit pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Artur Very good home base to visit the Strip
Well, in fact was not surprised: that was the Westin standard - warm welcome (with an additional to Platinum ammenity) , clean spacy room, good facilities and very close to the heart of the Strip. I agree with one of the reviewers that the distance between hotel and Strip might be more "friendly", but contrary to the review - I was not feeling insecure, although I've seen some homeless people, and some strange individuals (but you may see them all over the Strip).
Additionally the valet parking staff was very friendly and quick.
I can totally recommend this hotel to everyone travelling to LV, regardless the purpose.

WELL, IT'S BEEN 6 MONTHS. I HAVE COOLED OFF, BUT FEEL THE NEED TO STILL EXPRESS THIS TO OTHERS. MY SPOUSE IS IN A WHEELCHAIR. OUR HANDICAP ROOM WAS LOCATED AT THE COMPLETE END OF A LONG HALL (CARPETED AND VERY EXHAUSTING TO WHEEL ACROSS). THEN THE ROOM, ALTHOUGH BEAUTIFUL HAS A LARGE CHAIR ON ONE SIDE OF THE BED IN FRONT OF THE WINDOW (HOW IS HE TO CLOSE?) THE WORST...THE FLAT TILE BATHROOM HAD 100% OF THE WATER FLOWING OUT INTO THE BATHROOM. WE ASKED HOSEKEEPING FOR A SQUEEGIE MOP, 4 LARGE TOWELS EVERY DAY AFTER SHOWERING. I GAVE UP AND JUST USED THE MIRROR IN THE OTHER ROOM. WE ROLLED TOWELS UP AND PLACED ACROSS THE FLOOR THE NEXT DAY (DIDN'T REALLY HELP) THE WATER STAYED ON THE FLOOR UNTIL AFTER MAD SERVICE EVERY DAY. THIS NEEDS FIXED. NO ACCOMODATIONS/PRICE REDUCTIONS/ OR COUPONS FOR THE NEXT VISIT WERE OFFERED. WE PAID $100 A NIGHT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WF789 Have Low Expectations
I travel to Vegas for work twice a year and the only reason I stay at the Westin is because it's the only Starwood property available close to the strip. I've never had an upgrade in the 8 years that I've stayed at this property, not really a big deal because I don't think they have suites. The hotel is getting a little dated. Beds are still comfortable. Very little SPG recognition here - I waited in line for 30 minutes because a big group of people was ahead of me. There was a platinum / gold line, but there wasn't anybody attending that counter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SPGfor10yrs Better than expected based on earlier reviews
I stayed for three nights in February. Based on the earlier reviews I was hesitant but tried it anyway. Yes, the cigarette smoke remnants from the casino/bar take you back since I have only stayed in smoke-free hotels for years but all the strip hotels are like this. As others have said, being a couple blocks off the strip is nice change. The room was average for a Westin (I stay at a lot of Westins each year) but the staff was great and the bar food was both good and relatively plentiful/cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oc11 Quiet, close to Strip, not crowded, average value....
I like this hotel (I've stayed here 7-8 times or more) because it's away from the crowds. When I pull up in my car, I don't have to wait for valet and likewise when I leave.
The hotel is not that far away from the Strip - it's a quick 5 minute walk to the Flamingo.
Rooms are quiet, clean and modern.
Value is average, because at the moment some of the newer places on the Strip are cheaper, but I'm loyal to this place now.
