Last month when we went to Vegas for my sister’s wedding, our family stayed at Treasure Island. I wanted to share our experience with this hotel because Paul and I were very impressed with the accommodations.
First off, I spent hours upon hours searching the internet for the best hotel rates. We wanted to stay at a nice hotel on the strip, but not pay an arm and a leg to do so. Well, I signed up for the My TI Guestbook which gave me special discount of 55% of regular room rates at Treasure Island. I immediately booked our room because the deal was too good to pass up.
We arrived at the hotel around 11am, and were able to check-in early. There was an employee handing out cold bottles of waters for guests waiting in line. When she saw we had little ones, she gave us a few extra bottles to bring up to the room and suggested that we ask for a room with a “Battleship view”. She said the girls would get a kick out of seeing the pirate ship right outside our hotel window.
As soon as we reached the check-in desk, Paul asked the lady if we could get a room with a view of the pirate ship. She informed us that the suite we had reserved was not available with that type of view because of the location of the suites in the hotel. If we wanted a view of the pirate ship, we would have to upgrade to a different suite. She didn’t have to do much selling. After hearing that we would be getting a much bigger suite and for only $50 more a night, we were sold.
I was extremely excited to get a bigger room with a better view. While walking to find our room, I was shocked to see we had a suite with double doors. I’ve never stayed in a room with double doors, not even when we paid an arm and a leg for a Celebrity Spa Suite at the MGM eight years ago. When I opened the doors to the suite, my mouth literally dropped open from the massive size of our suite.
There was a king-sized bed with a pillow-top matteress and padded headboard, flat screen LCD TV, a dining table, a desk, a large sofa, TV, mini fridge, plenty of storage and more. The suite had 2 bathrooms. The first one had a huge shower (big enough to fit 2 or 3 people), a toilet, sink, vanity with a lighted mirror and closet. The second had a large whirpool tub, a huge vanity with a lighted mirror and stool, sink, toilet and a nice-sized walk-in closet. Aside from the somewhat dingy carpets, I really had nothing bad to say about the suite.
We had a great view of the pirate ship, and of the Palazzo and Wynn hotels. We were able to see the pirate show from our room, along with the extremely loud fireworks right outside our window. I had never seen fireworks going off in front of me at eye-level. It was pretty cool. We didn’t mind the noise from the show because the girls still sleep with white noise in the background and we put it loud enough to drown out the booms from the fireworks. We also ordered room service our first night there and the food was really good. I’m no foodie, but it was definitely worth the money and the convenience of not having to eat out with two toddlers.
If you plan on visiting Las Vegas soon, I highly recommend staying at Treasure Island. We were beyond satisfied with our accommodations. The hotel is nice, the staff is friendly and it is conveniently located on the strip, right across the street from the Palazzo and next to The Mirage.
